How Adele's Gone Incognito in London Lately

If you’re trying to spot Adele in London, look for the lady in the PJs. “I walked through Trafalgar Square on a Saturday afternoon — tourist haven — in pajamas,” the Grammy winner tells Matt Lauer in the upcoming NBC Adele Live in London special.

Even more shocking? The songstress was wearing color. “I’m always in black,” she says. “It was this tracksuit, with a massive green coat and little pink pumps. I had this massive umbrella so no one recognized me.”

The superstar says a few onlookers did do a double-take, but no one approached her. “A couple looked around, but they were like, ‘No … she’s in color and what would she be doing walking around a packed Trafalgar Square on Saturday in pajamas?'” she jokes.

During the special, Adele also speaks about her 2012 Grammy performance; it was her first time back onstage after her throat surgery, but she was thinking about more than just her voice. “I had three or four pairs of Spanx on that night,” she reveals, laughing. “I took a few pairs off when I sang, though.”

Hear more from Adele in the clip above, and catch the full NBC special on Tuesday, June 5, at 8 p.m. ET.

She’s too fat to go incognito.

Love Adele and the guest who made the comment about her being heavy set, is probably weighing 400 pounds.

She wasn’t too fat to win her Grammy was she. Get a life.

Love her!

Adele is the best new voice in years. Haters who can only see her weight suck.

FAT. No talent. Anyone can scream into a mic.

As a guy, I find her to be quite beautiful. (Sidenote: No, I’m not a “chubbychaser”. I do like women who are fit.) But she has a gorgeous face and while she could stand to lose some pounds for health reasons, she wears it well and I think she is pretty hot.

Sam, you clearly don’t know talent nor Adele…she does not scream into a mic and has a beautiful, strong, powerful voice. As to society calling her fat…there used to be a time where beauty was not about being stick thin. Marilyn Monroe, a size 16 at her largest, was a sex symbol during her time. Weight should not be the deciding factor as to whether or not someone has talent. Adele is very talented and beautiful!
