And still on the subject of Beauty and the Beast… One of its stars, British actor Luke Evans made his debut on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday—and judging by the audience’s reaction, he’s bound to be back before long. Oo-er!
“Whenever it’s your first time on the show,” Ellen told the latest Disney movie star, “we have to show shirtless photos.”
As she shared a slew of sexy shots, the Evans said, “Oh, no! Don’t embarrass me. Can we just stop? OK! OK! I post a lot of [selfies]. You’ve just ruined it now. I’ll never post another one.”
And disappoint his fans?
“This is a very female-heavy audience,” Evans admitted. “It worked out quite well.”
DeGeneres then showed a video of the shirtless actor singing Adele in his living room. “I’m the biggest fan of Adele,” Evans explained.
“My mum is on the little iPad on the screen, if you see there, and I’m singing. I didn’t realize when I zoomed in it was Ellentube I was watching Adele on. And this is me belting out ‘When We Were Young.’
“This is what I do on a Sunday morning, guys: learn Adele tracks. I FaceTime my mum when I learn a new song; she loves that. She tells me whether I should just drop it then or maybe learn it a little better. Now I sing it all the time.”
The Ellen Show is known for making dreams come true, and Evans was hoping that would be the case Monday. “Is this where Adele comes out behind me?” he asked, to which DeGeneres replied, “If only!” Because, as Evans explained, “I know what happens on this show.”
“It’s a shame you know what happens,” DeGeneres added, “’cause she’s not here.”
Instead, DeGeneres gave Evans a shower curtain that featured a photo of Adele in concert on one side and a shirtless cutout for the actor to stick his head through on the other side. “His physique is way better than mine,” Evans joked before singing a bit of When We Were Young.
My verdict? Classic telly!

Singer Adele is seriously ‘Rolling in the Dosh’ according to reports that state she was raking it in during her sold-out world tour last year after she performed 107 dates across Europe and America between February and December. Oo-er!
This places the Hello‘ songstress among a group of the most wealthiest musicians in the world including icons like Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, U2 and The Rolling Stones after making a whopping $500,000 every night, according to new accounts filed by her firm Remedy Touring, of which she is the sole director.
The Sun reports that the 28-year-old British star’s company made a profit of $13.5 million between October 2015 and April 2016.
“Given this was Adele’s first ever world tour her earnings really are incredible,” a source said.
“If you break it down then she was making more than half a million every single night. The latest accounts just go up until April, when she was only a few months into the tour, which make it all the more astounding.
“Adele was selling out arena after arena every night so her income would definitely have shot up at the same rate throughout the rest of the year.”
Meanwhile, it’s been claimed that the star has decided to take a lengthy break from the music industry when she wraps up her Adele Live tour later this year.
The superstar is reportedly planning to have another child with her husband Simon Konecki, 42, the father of her four-year-old son Angelo.
The couple – who have been together for five years – got engaged in October during Adele’s world tour and she revealed at the Grammy Awards that they had secretly wed, when she referred to Simon as her “husband”, during her acceptance speech for Album of the Year.
Adele said: “Grammys, I appreciate it, the Academy, I love you, my manager, my husband and my son – you’re the only reason I do it.”
Earlier this week Adele beat Beyoncé to win five Grammys and about to embark on an 11-date tour of Australia later this month, starting in Perth on February 28.
So I guess there will be more of that ‘dosh’ rolling in then!

Chasing sunshine? Adele seems to be making LA her new home these days and appears to settling in rather nicely!
The British singer is thought to be worth over $100 million, but still likes to do her own grocery shopping and came out of Bristol Farms last Sunday laden with food.
Still, the star looked fresh faced and without a care in the world when she was spotted dressed down and make-up free doing the big family shop in Tinseltown.
Well, at least it was Bristol Farms, I say!
When she’s off stage, Adele likes to stay make up free to show off her glowing complexion.
She kept on some oversized sunglasses to give her a sense of anonymity but when you’re one of the most famous women on the planet you can’t go anywhere without being recognised.
The 28-year-old mom kept her outfit chic but comfortable, covering up in a patterned maxi dress and wearing nude ballet pumps.
It seems she was preparing a feast for her family as she left the store with a packed trolley – possibly for a late Thanksgiving meal with her fiancé Simon Konecki and their three-year-old son Angelo.
Adele recently opened up about expanding her family with Simon once her schedule quietens down in 2017.
Closing the US leg of her world in Phoenix, Adele told the crowd: “Give it up for me – I did it!
“I’ll see you on the other side. I’m going to have another baby!”
Following the gig, Adele shared an adorable picture of a welcome home banner her son Angelo had made with Simon.
She’s now taking a break before heading to Australia and New Zealand for the final leg of her world tour.

Forget a breakup playlist—Adele just offered Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie a full-fledged concert.
The woman behind emotional hits like “Set Fire to the Rain,” “Someone Like You” and “Don’t You Remember” put on a show at New York City’s Madison Square Garden that doubled as a live ode to Brangelina.
The longtime celebrity couple shocked the showbiz world earlier this week when news broke of Jolie’s filing for divorce. The Oscar winner requested joint legal custody, but sole physical custody of the couple’s six children. According to the legal documents, she also requested that Pitt be granted visitation rights.
As Tuesday night’s concert attendees reported on Twitter, the British songstress (who has recently overcome serious stage fright) announced to the crowd that she was dedicating the show to the “elephant in the room,” calling the split the “end of an era.”
She addressed the crowd with, “are you up for a good time?” before explaining, “Well, you’ve come the wrong place… It’s two hours of misery. Two hours of egotistical songs about moi and my ex-boyfriends.”
She told the packed stadium, “I’m dedicating this show tonight to them,” In between songs she added, “I don’t know them personally, but it feels like the end of an era,” she said to the crowd. “I was shocked when I woke up this morning.”
The dedicated festivities didn’t end there. Fans in attendance at the star’s New York show quickly took to social media to share the pop star’s remarks. One fan wrote on Twitter, “Now #Adele is leading us all in a group Brad and Ange’ breakup therapy session. Also, there are songs.”
It has to be said, Adele isn’t wrong in saying her songs are the weepy and heartbroken, she has forged a record-breaking career based off of her own bumpy experiences in love.
Hopefully, with time—and the help of Adele’s tunes—this split will one day be water under the bridge.

According to sources, superstar Adele recently snubbed the Kardashian family’s dinner invitation – because she doesn’t want to appear on their show. Oo-er!
Megastar Adele reportedly rejected the invite for dinner because she didn’t want the evening filmed for TV.
Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner offered the singing superstar the chance to have a slap up meal with the famous clan after she discovered the British singer had relocated to Los Angeles – just a stones throw away from daughter Kim Kardashian and son-in-law Kanye West.
The celebrity power couple also have a three-year-old daughter North West, who is the same age as Adele’s little boy, Angelo, with the dinner being to celebrate this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.
But the 28-year-old singer sent back a flat reply of ‘no’ – despite being a big fan of their E! series, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
According to The Mirror, the famously private singer refused the invite because she wasn’t taken with the idea that the meeting would be filmed for the latest episodes of their reality series.
A source told the paper: “Kris feels it would be amazing for Kim and Kanye to give Adele an LA welcome and insiders’ knowledge after she bought a place here.”
They added: “At this stage, Adele is not sold on that idea.
“She hasn’t ruled out a dinner another time – it’s just a reality show isn’t for her.”
Despite this, the family remain on good terms with the singer – with Kendall Jenner being named as one of the star’s VIP guests earlier this year during a tour of the US.
Adele is now settling into her new life in America and is taking a break from the road before her tour restarts.
Well I never!

Hello, it’s … your credit card company.
When she’s not on stage, Adele is regularly photographed shopping at affordable stores, however just recently the British star told how her credit card was declined at H&M. Oo-er!
“I went to H&M and my card got declined,” the ‘Hello’ singer told the crowd during a performance in San Jose that evening. “Oh my day’s pretty embarrassing. Nobody knew it was me, but I was mortified.”
Before the incident she was able to make purchases at Sephora, she said.
Adele pulled in a whipping $80.5 million in the last year according to Forbes. Her hefty bank account landed her at number nine on the site’s annual highest-paid celebrity list.
To make matters worse, she added that her dog embarrassed her even more during her outing.
“My dog tried to claw another dog,” she said. “My trip to H&M was great … but no one knew it was me so I think I’m going to get away with it.”
Though Adele is reportedly the U.K.’s richest female musician ever, the singer enjoys bargain shopping and has even professed her love for Target before.
“They have everything!” she told the San Jose crowd. “I spent $100 on stuff I do not need, I never need anything I buy at Target but it’s amazing.”

She’s been working way too hard lately – clearly, so lets give Adele a break!
Adele may be one of the most successful recording artists ever, but she isn’t afraid to admit that even SHE makes mistakes.
A lesser artist may have panicked, but the British star styled it out like the pro she is when she forgot the words to her own song during a live show – quickly owning the mistake with some laughter and profanity.
That, at least, is the takeaway from reports that she sang the wrong words while performing her track Million Years Ago during a concert in Lisbon, Portugal on Thursday night.
Fans looked on open mouthed as they watched Adele accidentally start singing the chorus lyrics instead of the first verse, telling the audience “s***, wrong words…I started singing the verse.”
She then joked: “I forgot the words! Oh my god, I’ve never forgotten the words to that song!”
However, the diehards appeared to take it well and even laughed, clapped and ultimately basked in the revelation that Adele — though superior to just about everything — is still human.
From the brief sound-bite I heard the singer still rocked and covered her mistake ever so well… She still sounded amazing.
Got to love Adele, no matter what!

America’s Got Talent judge Mel B would love superstar singer Adele to join the Spice Girls for their reported upcoming anniversary tour.
Rumors have been rife for months that the hit girl group will be reuniting this year (16) to mark 20 years since the release of their debut single Wannabe.
It has been reported that Victoria Beckham and now Mel C, a.k.a Melanie Chisholm, had proved to be stumbling blocks in arranging a reunion, and Adele is said to have offered her services if the group need a replacement at any point.
Asked what she thought about the ‘Rolling in the Deep’ singer joining the Spice Girls during an interview on British television show Lorraine this week, Los Angeles based Mel laughed: “Oh Adele, that would be good! I love her! We all love her!”
Mel is currently in the U.K. to host the British LGBT Awards on Friday. After flying in on Tuesday (10May16) she was quick to meet up with former bandmates Emma Bunton and Geri Horner (nee Halliwell), and said the girls couldn’t help discuss plans for a reunion.
“I mean, we definitely want to do something,” Mel explained. “It’s a celebration of us still doing our thing 20 years on and still being supportive of each other, so we will see what happens. We are all just kind of in talks right now.
“It’s funny because I landed yesterday and I met up with a few of my Spices and we were doing a big time reminisce. I had a nice little cup of tea with Geri and Emma last night and it was lovely.”
While Mel was born in England, she spends most of her time in Los Angeles, where her three daughters go to school. But she has always been something of a globetrotter, and said in the interview that she’s a fan of the nomadic lifestyle.
“I come over a lot for work but I’m based in Los Angeles, I have been for about the last 12 or 13 years as my kids go to school there,” she said. “But then I have spent a bit of time in Australia and New York – I’m a bit of a gypsy and I like that.”
Not sure it would every happen, but I would to see Adele rocking on stage with the Spice Girls, I doubt it would ever happen though. But who knows…
