Watch Adele tell off “manspreaders” for taking up too much space on public transport

Singer admits on stage that she used to take up too much leg room when she rode the bus

During a recent gig in New York City, Adele took the opportunity to call out men who take up too much space on public transport.

The singer told the crowd at the iconic Madison Square Garden venue that though she no longer rides the bus herself, she was guilty of occupying more than her fair share of legroom when she used to.

“Close your legs, men,” she continued, calling out the male trait of “manspreading” – watch below.


Earlier this week, Adele revealed that she would like to attend university in the near future. She told fans at a recent gig in Boston: “I’m desperate to go to university. I know that sounds ridiculous but it’s one thing I really plan on doing.”

“I was about to start university in Liverpool in England and then I got offered a record deal, so I was like, ‘Ugh, what do I do?'” Adele recalled. “Obviously I took the record deal which I don’t regret at all.”

She has also revealed in a recent interview that quitting smoking has had an effect on her voice. “The people with the best voices, they always smoke,” she said. “I’ve given up smoking and I’m convinced that’s made my voice weaker.”
