Adele has “flatly refused” to promote diet plans and exercise videos.
The ‘Someone Like You’ hitmaker has been offered multiple “multi-million pound deals” to front new food companies and diet plans after her seven stone weight loss, but she has refused all business offers.
A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: “Adele has flatly refused several multi-million pound deals, including diet plans, food companies, vegetarian lifestyle packages, cookbooks, exercise videos and even catwalk modelling. Firms have pitched the Oscar-winner deals galore, but she wants to shy away from being a Kardashian clone by earning loads from a side hustle.”
Adele even poked fun at her impressive weight loss as she hosted ‘Saturday Night Live’ last week.
Addressing her slender figure in her opening monologue, Adele joked: “I know I look really really different since you last saw me. But actually because of all the COVID restrictions and the travel bans, I had to travel light and I could only bring half of me, and this is the half I chose.”
The 32-year-old singer also spoke about her history with ‘Saturday Night Live’, after she first appeared as the musical guest 12 years ago.
She said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be finally hosting this show. A show that not only do I genuinely love, but the show that broke my career here in America, 12 very long years ago. I was the musical guest back in 2008, when Sarah Palin came on with Ms. Tina Fey, and so obviously a few million people tuned in to watch it and the rest is now history.”
Adele closed her opening monologue by thanking the frontline workers – who formed part of the live studio audience – for their unrelenting efforts in the face of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
She explained: “Before we start the show, I want to say a genuine and sincere thank you to the frontline workers who are all down here in the audience. They say that once you’ve been to New York you keep a little piece of it in your heart forever, so I give it up to you, and give it up to yourselves as well.”
