  • Hello, Adele!

    Words by Olivia Adams 

    ‘Rumour has it’ Adele has been polishing her Pilates skills since ending her eight-year marriage to Simon Konecki in April, and judging from new social media snaps, that’s exactly what’s been happening.

    The Grammy Award winning singer looked sensational as she partied in Goya studios, Hollywood, for rapper Drake’s 33rd birthday on Wednesday – and thrilled fans by sharing a photo from the night on her Instagram page.

    “I used to cry but now I sweat,” the singer wrote on Thursday, along with the crying-laughing emoji.

    Rebel Wilson jokingly quipped in a comment underneath, ‘same’.

    As the snap started to gain over two million likes, photos of Adele at Drake’s extravagant party began to surface.

    The star – rumoured to be dating 37-year-old Grime artist Skepta – looked chic in a strapless, velvet dress. She accessorised with silver statement earrings and wore her hair in a high ponytail.

    On her own 31st birthday in May, Adele talked about her body evolution, revealing on Instagram that she’s ‘changed drastically in the last couple years and I’m still changing.’

    She added, ‘30 tried me so hard but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all…31 is going to be a big ol’ year and I’m going to spend it all on myself.’

    The star – who calls pal Drake one of the ‘kindest and funniest’ people she’s met – shares seven-year-old son Angelo with Simon, 45. Since the split, reports have claimed Adele has lost more than a stone, after taking up Reformer Pilates with Robbie Williams’ wife Ayda Field.
