"Sh*t that's the wrong words" is what Adele blurted out when she forgot the lyrics to one of her own songs.
And that's why we love her.
During a recent stop in Lisbon, Portugal, in support of her history-making album, 25, Adele was performing “A Million Years Ago” when she forgot the words to the ditty.
“Sh*t, sh*t, sh*t. Should I sing the right words? Sorry.” The crowd ate it up, laughing in support of Adele’s lyrical flub. And she also had a big giggle.
It’s a far different reaction than what happened during the Grammys, when the piano microphones fell on to the piano strings, causing Adele’s voice to sound off. She “cried pretty much” all the next day. “It threw the whole thing off,” Adele told Ellen. “Next time I have any sound issues, I am going to start over. [I will tell them] ‘sorry, that’s not working for me.’ Otherwise… bye!”
Why not both? The swearing and the “bye!” It’s what Malcolm Tucker would do.
