After making remarks on Adele's voice to a British newspaper, producer Tony Visconti offers a kind of apology. 

In his initial comments to the Daily Star, Visconti questioned the authenticity of Adele's voice, saying, "We know Adele has a great voice but it’s even questionable if that is actually her voice or how much has been manipulated. We don’t know." 

In email correspondence with Billboard, Visconti apologized that his words were misconstrued and added that he didn't mean to offend Adele. Read his statement below. 

"I’m sorry that what I said in regards to what’s being played on radio was misconstrued yet I cannot apologize for something taken the wrong way. If Adele has taken my comments as offensive that was certainly not my intent."

In concert, Adele gave her own retort without directly addressing Visconti. She told her critics to "suck my dick."
