Because Adele is GOD and can do whatever she wants (or so my Adele-obsessed friends tell me), Adele decided to promote her latest album of future chart slayers by going undercover as an Adele impersonator to prank some of her fans for a BBC Music special with Graham Norton yesterday. Adele slipped into some Adele drag (aka her best black dress and a 1960s ginger pageant queen wig) and got fixed up with a plastic nose and chin (aka the Kardashian Khosmetic Special), and showed up at a fake Adele impersonator audition pretending to be a Adele impersonator named Jenny.
For the most part, the fake Adeles were nice to the fake-real Adele. Except for the one Adele in the deflated Long Island Medium wig, who got all sassy about how she’d totally read Adele for taking so long to release new music. “I would“? You did! Obviously they all knew something was up with Jenny when she opened her mouth and started singing “Make You Feel My Love“. And then they all whipped out their phones, dialed 911 and were like “Hello? You better send over an ambulance, because I just met ADELE!!!!…and I think I’m having a heart attack.”
I don’t know what Adele did with her Adele wig when she was done, but I really hope she gave it to that drag queen in exchange that they promise never to wear that busted Cher wig while performing as Adele ever again.
And in other Adele news, Adele was at the same restaurant with Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth last night in New York City, and now some people (like People) think they might be friends. Here’s JLaw and her Hunger Games pals looking mopey while going to dinner last night. Maybe they are friends with Adele? That’s totally the face you get from listening to sad Adele songs on the way over in the car.
