Taylor Swift and Adele
Taylor Swift and Adele
Adele is a mother. She’s a singer. She’s an icon. She’s also a long-time fan of Beyonce.
So, like countless people watching at home all across the globe, she was energized and thrilled by Beyonce’s
So she shared multiple epic videos of herself reveling in Beyonce’s energy.
Beyonce’s Coachella performance was a sight to behold, and not only because it was also a Destiny’s Child reunion.
It was powerful and evocative. Beyonce has never in her life not brought her all to her art, and it shows.
Last year, Beyonce had to cancel because she was pregnant with her twins, Sir and Rumi.
This year, however, Coachella attendees were treated to her epic performance. And so were the viewers at home.
And, as you can see, Adele simply could not contain her delight.
Captioning her short, silent reply videos (translated into gifs for your convenience) as “#Beychella mood” numbered one, two, and three, Adele let loose for the camera.
When she performs her own songs, Adele is known for standing and swaying, often in a sparkling dress, while letting her vocals speak for themselves.
But that is Adele’s personal style for her own music.
That doesn’t mean that she cannot dance.
It also does not mean that she doesn’t dance.
“Beychella” was livestreamed on Coachella’s YouTube page.
Fans and professionals alike are still marveling at how the entire performance came together.
It’s not just that this included a lot of performers dancing in coordination.
People wonder how Beyonce managed to put all of it together, in a relatively short time, for a single-instance performance that would never be repeated.
The answer is probably that she’s Beyonce.
There are good ways to show your appreciation for Beyonce.
Adele is displaying one of them right here.
Bad ways to do that would be threatening the lives of people over Twitter if they don’t seem to be part of the Beyonce hype.
Another bad way to express admiration (or contempt or anything in between) for Beyonce would be to bite her face. Please do not do this.
Not to Beyonce and not to anyone else.
Be more like Adele.
Adele is, as always, a delight.
Some view their artistic careers as a zero sum game in which praising their competition would be hurting their own careers. Adele does not feel that way.
She openly questioned why her album beat Beyonce’s Lemonade in 2016.
When Kesha was making headlinesw hile battling Dr. Luke in court, Adele voiced her support for Kesha, making the higher-ups at Sony step back and realize how much damage Dr. Luke was doing for their image.
Beyonce brought joy to the world with her Beychella performance.
And Adele, while dancing to it, payed it forward to her fans and followers. It’s always wonderful to see good, talented women supporting other good, talented women in their own industry.
Girls really do run the world.
Adele did her best Dolly Parton impersonation … and it’s now Dolly approved. The “Hello” singer played dress up to virtually become the iconic country star — blonde wig, pantsuit, and lots of cleavage … while clutching a guitar. Adele gave…

Adele is, if we’re being honest, a beautiful gift that we’ve never deserved.
But still, even though we know we don’t deserve her and all her glory, that doesn’t mean we’re ready for her to leave us anytime soon.
Unfortunately, it seems like we don’t have much of a choice, and thanks to a few new updates from the woman herself, we’re starting to prepare ourselves for the worst.
For our first piece of evidence, we have a note that Adele wrote and included in her tour program for her series of concerts at Wembley Stadium.
For the big finale of her current tour, she’s doing four shows at Wembley — or she was. More on that in a moment.
In the note, she wrote that “Touring is a peculiar thing, it doesn’t suit me particularly well.”
“I’m a real homebody and I get so much joy in the small things. Plus I’m dramatic and have a terrible history of touring. Until now that is!”
She wrote that she’d done 119 shows in the tour, plus the four at Wembley, and “I only ever did this tour for you and to hopefully have an impact on you the way that some of my favorite artists have had on me live.”
“And I wanted my final shows to be in London because I don’t know if I’ll ever tour again and so I want my last time to be at home.”
And there it is. Cuts like a knife, doesn’t it?
So according to that note, the fans that managed to get tickets to the finale of her tour are super, super lucky.
Or they were if they caught the first two shows.
Yesterday, after playing her second show, she made a heartfelt announcement on Twitter that she’d be canceling the remaining two shows.
Meaning that the tour is over, and there’s a good chance that we’ll never get another chance to see her tour again.
In the post she wrote on Twitter, Adele explained that “The last two nights at Wembley have been the biggest and best shows of my life.”
She said she never thought she could pull off a show that big — classic Adele adorableness.
“However,” she continued, “I’ve struggled vocally both nights. I had to push a lot harder than I normally do.”
She said that, after going to see her doctor, she learned that her vocal cords have been damaged, and “on medical advice I am unable to perform over the weekend.”
It’s not the first time she’s experienced trouble from her vocal cords — after experiencing some similar issues, she had to take a good deal of time off for surgery to repair the problem in 2011.
This time around, she told her fans that “To say I’m heartbroken would be a complete understatement.”
She’s been trying steroids and other various treatments, and she said that she’s considered pushing on with the show anyway, but if she did, she likely couldn’t even finish the set.
“I’m so desperate to do them that I’ve even considered miming, just to be in front of you and be with you,” she added.
That would be a whole new kind of precious, but she’s decided against that route.
“I’m sorry,” she wrote to her fans. “I’m sorry for your disappointment. I’m sorry for the nights you would have had with your loved ones and the memories you would have made together.”
“I’m sorry for the time and money you’ve spent organizing your trips. You know I would not make this decision lightly.”
Poor, sweet Adele also said that she’s really struggling with coming to terms that she won’t get to do those last two shows, but that she’ll figure out a way to make it right.
For the time being, she said that returns will be offered if the shows can’t be rescheduled, and she’ll have more information soon.
“I’m devastated,” she wrote at the end of her note. “I’m sorry. I love you I’m so sorry, please forgive me.”
How is this woman so perfect? And how can we go on if she never performs again?
Adele has canceled the final two concerts on her 123-date world tour saying the show can’t go on because she’s damaged her vocal cords. Adele shared a lengthy and heartfelt message to her fans Friday explaining that she felt like she was constantly…
Adele is one of the most likable celebrities on the planet, and she’s proven that time and time again with acts of goodwill and her fantastic attitude.
Disaster struck the city of London on June 14 when Grenfell Tower, a 24-storey block of flats, went up in flames.
It was a harrowing tale that has left at least 79 people dead or missing and presumed dead.
Firefighters appeared on the scene to tackle the blaze quickly, but it proved to be a difficult task as the fire spread from one end of the building to another.
The firefighters struggled to keep the fire under control because of how quickly it spread.
Part of the reason for that is down to the materials used to refurbish the building a few years back.
In the days that followed, it emerged that the cladding was banned in the U.K. because the materials were highly flammable.
Ever since the fire ripped through the building last week, members of the public and celebrities have been showing up at the scene to help out in any way they can.
Lilly Allen and Rita Ora have been spotted there, and even Adele.
All three of them are from London, so the incident must have hit a little too close to home for them.
The world is a scary place right now, with crazy things going on every single day.
Adele decided to surprise a group of firefighters on Monday and arrived with cake for them to thank them for their efforts in tackling the fire.
This act showed off just how relatable the singing sensation is.
Station manager, Ben King opened up to The Independent about her arrival at the station and what went down.
“So we opened the door to her and then she took her sunglasses off and said, ‘Hi, I’m Adele.’ Everyone was so shocked,” King recalled.
“She came in, came up to the mess and had a cup of tea with the watch and then she joined us for the minute’s silence. We have had so much support for the local community, and we cannot thank everyone enough.”
What do you think about all of this?
Sound off below!
It’s official — like, officially official: Adele is a married woman!
She’s always been a very private person, or at least as private as one can be while singing songs filled with intimate details of love and heartbreak.
Remember, we didn’t even know the name of her son until she wore a necklace with the kid’s name on it.
But over the weekend, Adele did a concert in Australia. And she gave quite the rare glimpse into her life.
Specifically, we’re talking about that bit where she revealed that she’s married to her boyfriend of several years, Simon Konecki.
At one point in the show, Adele began talking to her audience about her smash hit, “Someone Like You.” The song, of course, is about an old love moving on with someone else and all the pain and heartache that comes along with that scenario.
“I could see in their eyes as they were listening to it on their headphones that it reminded them of something or someone,” she said.
“I was trying to remember how it was I felt at the beginning of the relationship that inspired that record because as bad as a breakup can be, as bitter and horrible and messy as it can be …”
Let’s pause real quick and take a moment of silence for how much Adele knows about how “bitter and horrible and messy” breakups can be.
If you need to listen to 21 in its entirety, we understand.
“That feeling when you first fall for someone is the best feeling on earth,” she continued, “and I am addicted to that feeling.”
She added “Obviously I can’t go through with those feelings because I’m married now. I’ve found my next person.”
So sneaky for a marriage announcement, right?! But thankfully, she was direct about it. “I’m married now” can’t really be interpreted in too many ways.
She raised some serious suspicions that she’d secretly married Konecki last month at the Grammy Awards — during an acceptance speech, she referred to him as “my husband.”
But in an interview after the show, she spoke of him again and simply called him her “partner,” which was a little confusing.
And not in a fun way. Adele broke our hearts into millions of pieces all those years ago when she released her 21 album, so if she’d gotten married and gotten such a beautiful happy ending, we’d really want to know, you know?
But now, we know. And it’s a wonderful feeling.
Congrats, Adele, you magical human being, you!
