If there are three things we know about Adele, it’s that she can belt it out better than just about anyone, has the mouth of a sailor, and enjoys her cocktails.
Because of two of these habits, the pop star isn’t allowed to tweet from her professional account (which has nearly 28 million followers). This came due to the fact she would have a few too many and let loose on social media.
Little did we know, Adele still does this.
The 28-year-old recently revealed in an interview that she has an anonymous Twitter account that she uses to get those drunk thoughts out into the open.
The reveal of Adele’s secret Twitter activity came during a recent concert:
Speaking on stage, Adele told fans in Brisbane: “I was looking on Twitter last night.
“They don’t know I have a secret account, well obviously they do now because I said that. By ‘they’, I mean my management.
“I’m not allowed access to my own Twitter because I’m quite mouthy and I say the wrong thing a lot of the time.
Adele explained why her team doesn’t let her use the verified account anymore in an interview with the BBC in 2015:
“I mean I’m not a drinker any more, but when Twitter first came out I was, like, drunk tweeting, and nearly put my foot in it quite a few times.
“So my management decided that you have to go through two people and then it has to be signed off by someone, but they’re all my tweets.
“No-one writes my tweets. They just post them for me. So, yeah, that’s very, very true.”
Damn. I wish they’d let Adele drunk tweet. I know it’s terrible from a PR perspective, but there’s hardly anyone better than blunt Adele. She’s not afraid to let something go and say it with a few vulgar adjectives (remember her George Michael tribute at the Grammys). Plus, she’s so popular at this point that people might embrace some drunk tweets.
Here’s to hoping this anonymous Twitter gets revealed and we get some drunk Adele tweets. We need them in this time of craziness.
