Adele is famous for her friendly bantering while entertaining crowds at her concerts, and even delivered a political message in support of Hillary Clinton during a recent concert.
Before this, the entertainer was vocal on Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce. However, she seemed to change her opinion on the topic from one concert to the next. In one shows she admitted to feeling sorry for the celebrity couple; however, during a subsequent concert, she declared that she no longer cares about the couple who opened their marriage to public scrutiny.
Earlier, Adele (born Adele Adkins in 1988) revealed that she loves to lead and maintain a peaceful and happy life. The singer-songwriter is a celebrity who’s always put her family first, simply because she wanted to enjoy her music career without hogging the spotlight. In fact, Adele revealed that she’s always been apprehensive of excessive fame because she’s seen many cases where fame has destroyed famous musicians.
It seems that it is not Adele’s desire to become famous at the expense of her family. Adele feels let down by celebrities and prominent politicians who pay a high price for being wealthy and famous.
Adele was very disappointed to see Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s private quarrel thrown open to media scrutiny. Currently, the eyes of the world are on Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Presidential hopefuls, who have become involved in disgraceful mudslinging while challenging each other in Presidential debates. These debates come across as a reality television extreme sports show and have become one of television’s most-watched events, culminating in today’s national election to determine the next President of the United States.
The two politicians have not only attacked their opponent’s policies; they’ve also slandered their families to gain the upper hand in the debate. The debates have clearly upset Adele who, like the rest of the world, is simply a mute spectator in the political war between Clinton and Trump.

According to Yahoo!, Adele condemned the debate during her concert and revealed that she feels sorry for Americans, whose squabbling presidential hopefuls are being exposed to the world.
“Did anybody watch the debate last night? Oh my f***ing God… I feel sorry for you, really. I watched the debate, and you should know who I like and who I do not f***ing like.”
It has recently been revealed that Adele pro-Hillary Clinton speech at her recent concert, which Clinton claimed to be “quite a birthday surprise,” was in fact orchestrated and paid for in advance by Clinton’s team.

Despite being a British citizen and therefore ineligible to vote on Election Day today, this is not the first time that Adele has shared her thoughts on an American politician. Earlier, Adele protested against Donald Trump using her songs in his presidential campaign after the Republican candidate played Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” and “Skyfall” during his public rallies.

Trump was reportedly trying to make his rallies more interesting and memorable by playing songs from R.E.M., Aerosmith, and Neil Diamond.
In 2015, Trump revealed he was Adele’s biggest fan when he attended the “Send My Love” singer’s concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. A number of Adele’s fans complained that Trump had jumped the queue to get access the concert hall; however, Adele, always the professional, openly objected to Donald Trump’s use of her songs to promote the Republican Party. According to the Mirror, a spokesperson from Adele’s team revealed that the singer had not granted Trump permission to use her songs for political purposes.
“Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning.”
As a British celebrity, Adele should consider herself lucky to be distanced from American politics, but she often finds herself pitted against other popular singers in the British music circuit. Digital Spy reports that Adele and Ed Sheeran were competing for the BMI London Award for the Best Song of the Year category.
Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” proved to be more popular than Adele’s “Hello,” and Sheeran walked away with the award. Adele won the award in 2012 when her song “Rolling in the Deep” proved to be the most popular song of the year.
