Adele’s first live performance of ‘Hello’ is breathtaking

Adele banned from her own Twitter account.

The single has been a huge hit with music fans: Not only did the single debut at the top of the Billboard charts, it also was the first song to sell 1 million downloads in one week.Adele employs a massive backing band – including a cellist and percussionist – in her first-ever live performance of comeback single “Hello.” The clip teases the TV special Adele at the BBC, which airs November 20th, the release date for her long-awaited third LP, 25. In addition, the 27-year-old is set to appear on “Today” on Nov. 25 and is headlining the NBC concert special, “Adele Live in New York City,” airing in December. She’s probably the most powerful woman in pop music at the moment, with her third album just a fortnight away from release, but Adele has hilariously revealed that she’s not allowed to send her own tweets because she used to post on Twitter while drunk.

The “Hello” footage finds the singer belting the melancholy lyrics (“I must have called a thousand times / To tell you I’m sorry for everything I’ve done”) in front of a video screen featuring her face. The 27 year old superstar has over 24 million followers on the social networking site, but admitted that everything she wants to tweet now has to be checked over by two people from her management company and “signed off”, after she nearly landed herself in hot water in the past by tweeting after a few drinks. Adele also answers a question about suspect tweeting during a Q&A game called “Rumor Has It,” confirming that her management won’t let her use Twitter without supervision. “I mean, I’m not a drinker anymore,” she says. “But when Twitter first came out, I was drunk tweeting and nearly put my foot in it quite a few times.

She made the amusing revelation while speaking to Graham Norton as part of her upcoming TV special ‘Adele at the BBC’, saying that the rule was imposed after narrowly avoiding social media storms “quite a few times”. No one writes my tweets – they just post them for me.” Adele opens up about 25, her experiences as a new mother and her rocky relationship with celebrity in Rolling Stone’s revealing cover story. Adele performed tracks from her upcoming album 25 (released November 20th) in her first televised live appearance in two and a half years, since she sang ‘Skyfall’ at the Oscars ceremony in 2013. Her single ‘Hello’ has topped the iTunes chart in 102 countries, and the new record is expected to sell nearly 2 million copies in its first week of release. Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again.

In a segment where the audience got to ask questions about rumours they’ve been hearing about the reclusive singer, somebody asked whether it was true that she was banned from her own Twitter account. “This is true. So, yeah, that’s very, very true.” Adele had built up a reputation for being occasionally outspoken at the start of her career, but has only tweeted a dozen times in 2015 so far, suggesting a strict vetting policy had been put in place.
