With Queen Elizabeth‘s birthday having just past, it only makes sense for the world to celebrate the birth of another queen—Adele.
Turning 33-years-old on May 5th, the “Someone Like You” singer took to her Instagram to make a rare appearance in celebration, and of course, she was nothing short of stunning.
Sharing a trio of images, fans were treated with a black-and-white portrait of the musician sporting a black jumper, gold hoops and her long, blonde locks, as well as an image of Adele mid-swim, and perhaps the most joyous of all, the singer dancing in her home donning a tie-dye Altuzarra dress.
“Thirty Free,” she captioned the post.
As for further Adele-related coverage, the singer has kept a rather low profile within the last year, only appearing in footage—that has since been taken down—showing her dancing at Daniel Kaluuya’s Oscars after party back in April.
Always taking the world by storm, Adele’s last public appearance may have taken place back in October 2020, but the internet simply cannot refrain from the singer’s comedic talents after she hosted Saturday Night Live.
Reflecting on her time on stage while honing her acting skills—thanks to a Bachelor stint that involved breaking a wine glass and belting her most popular hits—she shared gratitude for the opportunity to have some fun.
“I did it for the joy of it and I hope you got some from it too! […] Look after each other and go easy on yourselves. […] I’m going back to my cave now to be the (single) cat lady that I am! Peace out til next year ♥️” she wrote.
Here’s hoping that we see a little more of Adele in 2021, or perhaps the release of a new album, but of course, no pressure.
