Adele just wrapped her eight-night concert stint at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and we’re already counting down the days until she returns.
Notoriously candid during her live shows, fans were granted with quite a few tidbits about the singer’s personal life that included the rumors surrounding her headlining spot during the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show, her shameless love for Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and her frustration over having to sacrifice pizza to save her voice. Not to mention all those celebrity sightings—who knew Ashton Kutcher was such a huge “Rolling in the Deep” fan?!
We’ve rounded up a small sampling of Adele’s best onstage moments, because let’s be real, every moment she graces us with her presence is not to be missed.

Super Bowl Dreams Squashed: To be honest, this one stung a little. After speculation surfaced that the Grammy winner would perform at next year’s Super Bowl halftime extravaganza, Adele took the opportunity to put an end to the rumors. “First of all, I’m not doing the Super Bowl,” she said. “I mean, come on, that show is not about music. And I don’t really—I can’t dance or anything like that. They were very kind, they did ask me, but I said no.”
Krazy for Kardashians: The 28-year-old proved she really is no different from us (besides selling out concert arenas) with her hilarious confession about the E! reality series. While Adele was pregnant with her three-year-old son Angelo, she evidently loved watching reruns of KUWTK!
L.A. Has Changed Her: During her August 7 concert, Adele admitted that she has fallen victim to the stereotypes that moving to Los Angeles inflicts on its transplants. The singer is apparently now a huge fan of drinking green juice, getting B-12 shots and hitting the gym, telling concertgoers, “Can you imagine running with my bum? It literally hits me in the back of my head when I run.”
Celebs Can’t Get Enough: From Jennifer Lopez to Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin and Elle Fanning, the chance to see stars rocking out to Adele in their seats was extremely likely for her L.A. appearances. Mila Kunis and Ashton enjoyed a date night out together for her August 13 performance, with an eyewitness telling E! News, “They were singing along and laughing at Adele’s jokes. Mila was dancing to her songs. Ashton had his arm around her. It was really cute.”
Pizza Pity Party: Ever the comedienne, the “Hello” crooner bemoaned to fans about recently having to give up pizza. “I can’t eat pizza anymore guys, how bad is that?” she reportedly said to the crowd. “Because it’s got cooked tomatoes on it, which are bad for your throat and give you acid reflux.” We will gladly eat a pizza in your honor, Adele.
Pre-Show Jitters: “I hope that you feel like you’re getting to know me,” Adele told concertgoers on August 7. As it turns out, the British native’s “biggest fear” ahead of embarking on her latest world tour was losing her connection with fans while performing in such massive venues as the Staples Center.
Simone Biles’ Biggest Supporter: In between tour stops, Adele has enjoyed catching the athletes compete for gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics. “That woman is amazing,” Adele said, referring to the breakout star of Team USA’s Final Five. “Everything about her is absolutely incredible. I’m not even American, but I couldn’t be prouder of her.” She then went on to jokingly scoff all of America’s gold medals, “You always win. It’s like you and China, right?”
Grammy Nominated Fan: Unbeknownst to Adele, the vocal powerhouse invited a fellow Grammy-nominee onstage to sing a few tunes for the crowd. Although Adele probably assumed Jamie Grace was just an extra-talented fan, in reality she’s been nominated for a Grammy and has had multiple hits on the Billboard Christian music charts.
