    Adele has never been one to flaunt her private life all over social media.

    So when she does decide to post something online, we can’t help but feel just a teensy little bit excited to learn about what she’s been up to.

    The singer – who was propelled to global stardom back in 2008 after releasing her debut album 19 – turned 27 earlier this week and marked the momentous occasion in a pretty memorable way.

    She, erm, decided to dress up her George Michael and boy oh boy are we glad she treated the world to a couple of pictures.

    Thank you for the birthday wishes I had a wonderful time,’ she happily told her 22.6 million Twitter followers.

    I was my hero x #gottahavefaith.’

    We’re sure you won’t be shocked to hear that Adele can be seen rocking an uh-mazing costume in the incredible snaps.

    The Grammy award-winning star sports a heavily backcombed honey-hued quiff and has stubble peppered all around her jaw.

    And totally reminiscent of Wham! icon George, 51, in his Faith days, Adele wears a low-cut white T-shirt beneath a black leather biker jacket.

    A dangly earring and pair of supersized aviator-style shades completes her transformation. The only prop that seems to be missing is a guitar.

    This might just be one of the best fancy dress costumes we have ever seen.

    Of course, Adele’s upload sent fans into a frenzy with many appearing to be at quite a loss for words. But, seriously, can you blame them?!

    @OfficialAdele what is this picture omg i am screaming,’ one mused.

    Another excitedly chipped in: ‘OMG I LOVE YOU QUEEN.’

    Adele’s not the only celebrity to have celebrated getting older by becoming someone else in recent weeks.

    Hollywood actress Kate Hudson recently donned neon fishnets and a tiny pink dress to kick off her 36th year on the planet at her very own ‘hot mess’ gathering.
