'This is just half of me': Adele flaunts her incredible weight loss on SNL


Adele has hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time, joking that she brought ‘half of me’ with her, as a result of her massive weight loss. 

She immediately referenced her radically different appearance, saying: ‘I know I look different than when you last saw me, but because of the COVID restrictions I had to travel light and bring only half with me, so this is the half I chose.’ 

In January, the singer told a fan during a vacation in Anguilla that she lost ‘something like 100 pounds.’

Adele’s former trainer Camila Goodis told ‘Extra’s’ Billy Bush: ‘I do believe she changed her lifestyle – she really changed her diet.

‘There is no miracle exercise that can make you look like you lost a lot of weight.’ 

Adele was last on SNL in 2008, in an episode hosted by Josh Brolin.

At the time she had just released her first album, 19.

‘It’s me, Adele, and my God, I’m absolutely thrilled to finally be hosting this show,’ she said. 

‘A show that not only do I genuinely love, but the show that broke my career here in America 12 very long years ago. 

‘See, I was a musical guest back in 2008 when Sarah Palin came on with Ms Tina Fey. 

‘So obviously a few million people tuned in to watch it and the rest is history. 

‘Now, I don’t know anything about American politics. I’m British, you know? And I don’t want to say anything too political, so I’ll just say this: Sarah Palin, babes, thanks for everything, yeah?’

She also joked about her British habit of swearing, gesturing to a swear jar.

Adele said she wanted to ‘have a glass of wine of six and see what happens’.

‘I’m nervous. You know what I’m like. I always get very nervous on live TV but tonight especially so because I swear a lot. Like a lot a lot,’ she said.

‘Honestly I don’t notice I’m doing it anymore. But tonight, we’ve got a swear jar. Let’s check in on that. Let’s make sure that all goes to charity.’ 

She said her album was not finished and she would rather ‘have a glass of wine of six and see what happens’. 

The 32-year-old London-born singer last released new music in 2015, with her third and final album, 25.

In 2016 she headlined Glastonbury, but has kept a low profile for the past few years, leaving fans clamoring for more music from her. 

In one skit on Saturday, Adele played a contestant on The Bachelor, breaking into song and irritating the other contestants. 

In a skit on Saturday, Adele was a customer at Kate McKinnon’s fortune telling salon.

‘I see no concerts in 2020, only coloring,’ McKinnon tells Adele. 

The fortune teller tells Tiffany Toobin: ‘I see your father. He is on a Zoom. And his weiner is out.’

She ends: ‘If any of you see JK Rowling, please tell her – stick to the books.’
