A picture may be worth a thousand words -- but oftentimes they're the wrong ones, and man do we hate it when that happens.

The photo above began circulating after the 2013 Grammy awards along with a story that alleged Adele gave Chris Brown a stern talking to for not standing when his rival Frank Ocean beat him out for an award.

But alas, the British chanteuse says that story is false. Which gave us a serious case of the sads.

 
“Oh Chris, you beat women so beautifully,” Adele cooed at him. To which Breezy replied, “Thanks, bitch, nice rack!”

At least that's how we imagine things went.

And with that, our favorite story of the week has been ruined. Way to rip our still-beating hearts out of our chests and stomp on them with your niceties, Adele.
