Adele Aggressively Warns Concertgoers About Rogue Bat in Audience
Part of the appeal in Adele's pop persona lies in her no holds barred approach to the industry. How refreshing, then, to note that attitude seemingly extends to all facets of her life -- including a near encounter with a rogue animal.
The “Hello” singer was caught off guard during her show in Mexico City last night (November 15), when she spotted a bat swooping around the arena, through the audience, only to land dangerously close to a concertgoer's skull.
Upon sight of this encounter, Adele reacted the way most would, her speech suddenly peppered with swear words and alarmist rhetoric: “There’s a bat, it landed right by your head!”
Then, to further illustrate the flying creature, Adele launched into an overt bat impression — complete with flapping wings.
“Oh my god, there’s a f—king bat,” Adele continued, screaming at an audience member in an attempt at shared awareness. “Welcome to Mexico! It’s true, I’m happy to be here, but a f—king bat, Jesus Christ.”
The sight apparently triggered a long-ago memory where Adele encountered a bat in her own home.
"Anyway, like I said. One time a bat got into my house. It was very scary," she said via the Metro. "I was on my own. It very, very, scary. I had to deal with it. I had to put all the lights off and put a torch right by a window. It’s a long story, I’ll tell you another time."
