In a captivating moment during her Las Vegas residency concert, the extraordinary Adele, at 35 years old, posed a thought-provoking question to her devoted fans. With a touch of vulnerability and genuine curiosity, she asked them whether they would dare to embark on a profound journey to witness the remnants of the sunken Titanic in a submersible or submarine. Little did she know, the question would take on a bittersweet resonance, as news had just emerged of the tragic fate that befell the passengers who explored the Titanic’s resting place in the Titan submersible.
Seated gracefully at the piano, Adele requested her audience to express their opinions through a simple show of hands, seeking their connection in this moment of contemplation. “Before this week, how many of you would venture to the deepest depths of the ocean to see the Titanic? Raise your hands,” she inquired, as a video of the concert captured the scene and was later shared by sources. Observing the crowd, she remarked, “See, I knew it,” as it appeared that more would decline the opportunity rather than embrace it. She then posed another question, asking if they would embark on a rocket ship to space, once again finding that the majority were hesitant to take the leap.
With her signature humor, Adele openly disclosed her own stance on the matter. “Personally, I wouldn’t do either, but only because I’m a bit of a p*ssy. I’m a scaredy cat,” she humorously admitted. “I won’t even go on roller coasters. But also, I genuinely lack interest in the deep sea or space, so that’s why.” However, she acknowledged the intrigue surrounding these realms and empathized with those who possessed a genuine fascination and adventurous spirit.
Adele’s musings on the Titanic are not without context, as she has previously expressed a connection to the historic vessel, or at least the cinematic retelling of its tragic tale. On her 30th birthday, she celebrated with a Titanic-themed party, donning the attire of Rose, the character brilliantly portrayed by Kate Winslet in the iconic 1997 film. Through black and white photos shared on Instagram, Adele conveyed her gratitude to her loved ones for indulging her deep affection for the movie, creating a night filled with joy and laughter.
In her heartfelt caption accompanying the images, she thanked everyone for joining her on the incredible journey of the past 11 years. She expressed her appreciation to her family and friends for embracing her unwavering fandom for the Titanic movie. While relishing the festivities, Adele playfully confessed, “Last night was the best night of my life. Here’s a couple of pics. I’m absolutely f*cked, not sure I’ll make it out of the house again!”
Adele’s ability to connect with her audience on both an emotional and relatable level is what sets her apart as an artist. Through her candid reflections and lighthearted humor, she sparks conversations, ignites nostalgia, and reminds us of the enduring power of stories, be they real or fictional.
