Adele has never been one to bite her tongue when there is something that needs to be said. That is just part of the singer’s enduring popularity; a strong voice with an even stronger character, one feels it would be a bad idea to get on the wrong side of one of music’s most successful and well-loved stars.
Adele has been in the news consistently of late; she made headlines at the Grammy awards when she paid tribute to iconic singer Beyonce, having won the album of the year award. Adele was effusive in her praise of her fellow songstress, saying that she felt Beyonce was more deserving of the award in a gracious moment that resonated with music fans everywhere.
The Someone Like You singer, who is admirably protective over her private life, also appeared to confirm that she is now married to her long time partner Simon Konecki, who founded the charity drop4drop.
Now, Adele has made headlines again after asking a member of security at her Melbourne gig inside the city’s Etihad Stadium to stop telling people to sit down during her performance.
Having just finished a song, Adele confronted the member of security through her microphone, saying “Excuse me sir? I know you work here but could you please stop telling people to sit down? This is a music show. If people can’t see then they can stand up. If you’re moaning about people dancing what the f*** have you come to a music show for? If I see one more person be told to sit down, I swear to God.”
The singer is nearing the end of her tour of Australia, and will be back in front of audiences in London this summer for shows at Wembley stadium.
