Singer Adele’s return gift to her fans on her birthday was a photo of her new persona. Adele, who adapted a dietary change sometime last year after her separation from former husband Simon Konecki, officially introduced a much, much leaner version of herself – she lost a lot of extra kilos – in her birthday post on May 5, in which she thanked her fans for showering her with best wishes. She also shared a note of gratitude for COVID-19 warriors in her post: “Thank you for the birthday love. I hope you’re all staying safe and sane during this crazy time. I’d like to thank all of our first responders and essential workers who are keeping us safe while risking their lives! You are truly our angels. 2020, okay bye thanks x,” the 32-year-old singer captioned her post but it’s her photo that stole the show and broke the Internet.
In the photo, Adele doesn’t look anything like how we have always seen her. She can be seen sporting a little black dress with flounced sleeves as she poses behind a huge flower wreath.
Adele’s post garnered some 61,000 comments in just four hours with friend Chrissy Teigen’s being one of the first ones. “I mean are you kidding me?” she wrote while Rita Wilson added: “Looking gorgeous!” The general sentiment on Adele’s Instagram was: “Look at Adele!” with reactions also pouring in on Twitter. “Adele liked her own post. LMAO. She knows she looks damn good. This is the energy we need,” read a tweet while another added: “Adele’s transformation is a kind reminder that you can achieve whatever you set your mind to.
