I didn t blast Brown: Adele

Singer Adele has denied speculation she was confronting Chris Brown in a photo taken at the Grammy Awards on Sunday.

In a post on her Twitter account, the 'Set Fire to the Rain' singer has set straight reports the photo shows her telling off the singer for failing stand when Frank Ocean collected his award.

Video footage of the awards presentation shows that although Brown clapped, he refused to stand.

A photo taken later shows Grammy Award winner Adele, 24, apparently giving a visibly uncomfortable Brown, 23, a tongue lashing over his ungracious behaviour.

"Chris Brown and I were complimenting each other in that photo actually," Adele said on Twitter yesterday.

Ocean beat Brown to the urban contemporary album Grammy.

Brown was lucky to attend the event after being involved in a car crash on Saturday when his vehicle hit a wall. He escaped unscathed.
