It's no secret that the world is head over heels for Adele. The singer is known for her powerful voice, her infectious laughter, and her ability to remain so down to earth despite reaching such a successful platform. Those 3 qualities are enough to make her one of the most outstanding musical artists of our generation.
Her weight loss journey has made countless headlines over the past year or 2 - but after her latest SNL teaser, people can't stop talking about something else altogether. Yep, Adele is in hot water for one offensive skit...
Adele has recently stunned us all.
via: GettyAnd no, this time it wasn't with a dramatic change in appearance, even though that was an extra bonus factor.
While appearing on SNL, she was catapulted into roles we've never seen her in...
via: GettyThis includes a host, a Bachelorette, and an American woman... yes, you read that right.
But there was one skit people were not loving.
via: GettyEven though the singer has recently been in the spotlight for her entirely new look, this controversy has overshadowed everything.
So yeah, the rumors might be true that she's put her music career on hold for a while...
via: GettyBut that doesn't mean we're not being supplied with the Adele-content we've been asking for.
But don't worry, she'll be back to doing what she does best in no time...
via: Getty ImagesA British born and bred singer with the ability to stun audiences with her powerful voice, Adele is known for bringing back the "classic ballad" to the music industry.
The first of her hits to enter the Billboard Hot 100 was "Chasing Pavements."
Then followed her debut album, 19.
And things only went up from there...After taking a break to focus on her personal life in 2012, Adele returned back to the scene with her sensational hit "Hello."
And that became the song of the year in 2015.
via: Getty ImagesShortly after, she released her next album, 25, which featured iconic songs such as "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)." If you haven't listened to that album, please do yourself a favor and add it to your playlist. You will not be disappointed.
Now, the singer has sold millions of songs worldwide...
via: Getty ImagesHer list of achievements is outstanding, to say the least. Adele has fifteen Grammys as well as an Oscar tucked nicely under her belt and the list is expected to grow as rumors of her next album have sparked fans.
But her successes aren't the only things that fans are talking about...According to the word on the street (also known as Twitter), Adele has undergone one of the most amazing transformations they have ever seen.
The singer was spotted at Drake's birthday bash last October...
I feel like Adele’s new album is going to destroy us, in the best way possible.— 🌻 (@🌻)1571960047.0
She is typically known for her stripped back, casual style of dressing...
Adele has always been gorgeous, but she often spoke out about how she wasn't happy with her body.
A source told The Sun this back in October...
"She has been loving her new workout regime and it really works for her."
Due to her weight loss, her mental health has improved too.
But it's safe to say...That Adele is looking better than ever.
But Adele's journey is still going on.
From this classic black number...
via: GettyWow. Just wow.
To this spooky yet stunning costume...
via: GettyAdele really knows how to keep her fans itching for more.
However, besides her new look, there's one other thing that people just can't stop talking about.
via: GettyAn offensive SNL skit has been getting the internet really riled up...
It was a parody of an advert for tourism in Africa.
via: GettyBut many are concerned with how it perpetuated dangerous stereotypes ...
