Feb. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Adele won six Grammy awards, sweeping the major categories of song, record and album of the year, on a night the music industry mourned the loss of singer Whitney Houston.

Foo Fighters won five awards including best rock album, and Kanye West took home four including best rap album for "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy."

Adele Is iTunes' First Double Platinum-Selling Artist

Adele's ex must be kicking himself.

With over 2 million downloads on iTunes within a year of its release, her latest album 21 has earned the soulful 23-year-old British singer the title of first artist ever to go double platinum on Apple's iTunes Store in the U.S., reported The Loop.

Adele's extremely successful sophomore album -- reportedly inspired by said ex -- just experienced its biggest sales week thus far, selling 730,000 copies.
