Adele has once again proved that she is all of us – especially when she’s had a drink or two.
The potty-mouthed pop diva announced that she has to be kept on a tight leash by her management when she’s three sheets to the wind.
Why? Because Adele can’t help but drunk tweet.
The sly singer-songwriter apparently created a secret Twitter account where she can go to vent her two cents along with the rest of us about politics, people in the public eye and the state of pop culture.
At a Brisbane show on Tuesday night, Adele told the adoring crowd:
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. So they took that privilege away from me.
This proves a long-standing rumour among Team Adele.
In 2015, she told the BBC:
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.
While the management think it would be bad press to let Adele tweet to her heart’s content, her fans couldn’t disagree more.
The hunt for Adele’s secret Twitter account is now on:

Between the covert operations that get Adele to gigs on time, avoiding fans, and this secret Twitter handle from which she can observe us all, it sounds like the Brit School success story is also a spy in the making.
Adele for the first female 007, anyone?
