Adele, Queen of Breakup Songs, Dedicated Her NYC Concert to Brangelina

Last night, Adele performed at Madison Square Garden. Between songs, she said she was dedicating her set to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, whose divorce proceedings were made public yesterday.

“I don’t like gossiping, and private lives should be private,” the singer publicly told the sold-out crowd, “but I feel like it’s the end of an era, so I’m dedicating this show tonight to them, because honestly, I’m really really sad, genuinely… I was shocked when I woke up this morning.” TMZ has video.

Adele then went on to perform a long string of songs about breakups and heartbreak. If there’s anyone who should be dedicating a concert to them, it’s probably her.
