When I went to see Adele, I was drunk on overpriced arena wine, but I still remember her saying that she probably wasn’t going to tour again. It’s actually amazing that I was able to hear Adele say that through the sound of thousands of women crying their tear ducts out as their ovaries combusted from hearing her sing live. But just in case nobody heard Adele announce that there’s a chance she may never go on tour again, she told her fans in an Instagram post that her third concert tour could be her last.
Adele commemorated her 29th birthday on May 5th by posting pics of what she’d look like as an old lady on her Instagram, yesterday.
Nearly 30! Thanks for the well wishes. See you soon x
What I want to know is – was this a Photoshop job or did she take the time to have a makeup artist do her up? Megastars can really get whimsical with special occasions, huh.
This could become a meme, celebs aging themselves up for social media kicks on their birthday. And then the opposite will start to happen. Celebs whose terror over aging causes them to resort to desperate measures, like replacing their faces with plastic and vampirism. Then they will start posting pics of themselves made up as fetuses. This could get grotesque really quickly.
During her acceptance speech for Album of the Year at the Grammys last month, Adele referred to Simon Konecki, the father of her son and partner of 5 years, as her “husband.” But then backstage, she threw the car in reverse and went back to calling him her “partner.” So confusing, Well, wonder no more.
During Adele’s tribute to George Michael at the Grammys, she stopped after the first verse of her slowed-down version of Fastlove, and said she had to do it right for him before staring over. Adele was taking that tribute performance very seriously. As it turns out, she was taking it seriously because the family of George Michael specifically wanted her to perform the tribute.
When Adele won the Album of the Year Grammy, she said in so many words that the voters made the wrong decision and that the trophy should’ve gone to her lord and savior Beyonce. Ten-time Grammy (and three-time Latin Grammy) winner Carlos Santana disagrees with Adele and added some words that put his face on a Most Wanted poster in the Hive.
After Beyonce covered the Grammys stage with a fertility sun goddess meets Young Pope extravaganza, I fully expected the other performers to suddenly come down with a serious case of the wet shits and refuse to perform. I also expected the other winners to hand their trophy over to Beyonce before worshipping at her deity feet. Adele kind of did that after her album 25 won Album of the Year.
