Singer makes her first public appearance since having a baby
Adele has won a Golden Globe for her theme to the James Bond film ‘Skyfall’ – watch her amazing acceptance speech above.
Taking to the stage to collect her award for best original song with the track’s co-writer Paul Epworth, she said: “Oh my God. Oh my God. Honestly, I’ve come out for a night out with my friend. We’re new Mums. We’ve literally come for a night out, I was not expecting this.”
She added: “It’s very strange to be here and thank you so much for letting me be part of your world for a night. It’s amazing, we’ve been pissing ourselves, you know.”
The singer had not been seen in public since the birth of her first child in October. Speaking backstage, she told reporters: “I had my child two weeks before the film came out so it was bad timing. It was such an honour to be involved. Normally I write about my misery and this time I wrote according to someone’s script. It’s absolutely amazing. I took the risk and I’m very proud of it,” The Telegraph reports.
When asked to reveal the name of her son, she replied: “I’m not revealing his name. It’s too intimate and personal at the moment. I’m enjoying it, thanks for asking.”
US TV comedy favourites Tina Fey and Amy Poehler co-hosted the ceremony at the Beverley Hilton Hotel, taking over from Ricky Gervais, whose acid-tongued quips at the A-listers in attendance was a notoriously controversial part of the show for the past three years.
