AceShowbiz - Adele doesn't mind her words in public. The "Hello" hitmaker was reportedly "throwing F-bombs" in front of audience, which included her ex-husband Simon Konecki and their son, during the taping of her intimate concert for an upcoming CBS special "Adele One Night Only".
The show was held on Sunday, October 24 outside the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, California and hosted by Oprah Winfrey. For the taping, the 33-year-old singer wore a tight mermaid dress, a fashion choice that she seemed to regret. "She couldn't sit down in it and made it a thing," a source told Page Six. "She was throwing F-bombs all around. Hilarious."
Adele performed in front of guests including Drake, Kris Jenner, Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi, Lizzo, James Corden, Sarah Paulson, Gordon Ramsay and Gayle King. It's reported that the 300-person audience also included the Grammy-winning artist's ex-husband and their 9-year-old son, Angelo, who got a special onstage shout-out from his mom.
For the concert, Adele belted out four tracks from her forthcoming album, "30", including the recently released single, "Easy On Me". The source told the publication, "[The] songs [were] about being yourself and not caring." The informant added that the "Someone Like You" singer also sang cuts from her 2008 album, "19", that "she's never done live before" in addition to hits from 2011's "21" and 2015's "25".
According to the outlet, the two-hour special will air on Sunday, November 14 at 8:30 P.M. on CBS and Paramount+. It will also include an interview with Oprah about the "new album, the stories behind the songs, life after divorce, weight loss and raising her son."
The show apparently was not the first time some of the guests heard the upcoming project, as Adele unveiled that Drake was the first person to listen to her new album. She said, "I played it to Drake last year when he was in town. And I was like, 'Is this what people want, or not want?' And he said, 'Absolutely,' but that's it really."
Adele went on to say, "Drake's obviously incredible and amazing as well as being my mate, but I don't send it around to various people being like 'can I get your thoughts on this?' " The chart-topper added, "It's always about how it makes me feel, quality control is my forte and I can write a song about my own experiences and my own life. People certainly aren't waiting for a club banger from me."
