Adele Confirms Marriage - Announces Relationship Status Update At Australian Concert
Mon, 06 Mar 2017 09:05:13
Adele is currently playing a string of dates around the world, this weekend she performed a concert in Brisbane, Australia. Oh, and that's where she announced her marriage.
The singer confirmed her marriage to long-term partner, Simon Konecki, a former financier who founded drop4drop, a charity that presses for global access to clean drinking water.
Just ahead of performing "Someone Like You", the award-winning, record-breaking singer revealed her relationship status update. "That feeling when you first fall for someone is the best feeling on earth," she said. "And I am addicted to that feeling. Obviously, I can't go through with those feelings because I'm married now," "I've found my next person."
Until now the couple, who have been together since 2011, have refused to confirm whether they had tied the knot.
The singer picked up five awards at the GRAMMY ceremony in L.A. last month, including Album Of The Year, and wore a green dress to the event — she became the target for a host of online trolls who made references to her appearance being close to cartoon character Shrek.
On stage at a Perth, the star told the audience how she felt about the comments being made online. "I don't F***ing care...It was Givenchy Couture. They can say what they want." She added: "Before the GRAMMYS I had this dress right, I wore this green dress, everyone said I looked like Fiona from Shrek. They did."
"I worked out. Obviously I'm a large lady and I like eating food very much, but I was working out twice a day to fit into that Givenchy dress because it was quite tight."
Handling things with humor and humility is exactly what Adele fans have come to expect from an artist who wears her heart on her sleeve. We can only hope that the star finds some time to spend with her husband, and to enjoy her new, publicly confirmed status.
