Adele and Jennifer Lawrence surprise fans by appearing together at New York gay bar

"I am speechless!"

Adele and Jennifer Lawrence have surprised fans by appearing together at a New York gay bar.

The two, who have been friends for several years, unexpectedly appeared at Pieces in Greenwich Village yesterday evening (March 22).

Adele can be seen on stage after being called up by the bar’s host and was asked to introduce herself. “Hi, my name’s Adele,” the Grammy Award winner said, before telling the audience to cheers that she was “actually at the moment a stay-at home-mum.”


Surprised fans at the venue shared images and footage from the event. “I’ve just partied with Jennifer Lawrence and Adele…I’m speechless,” one tweeted. “Randomly getting turns with JeLaw and Adele,” another added.

The Drag Queen host, Brita Filta, quizzed Adele more on stage and asked if she was single or taken, to which the singer replied she was married. “Are you still ready to mingle and have a great time with the gays tonight?” Filta added, to which Adele responded: “Fucking obviously!”

Earlier this month, Adele was spotted in attendance at one of Robyn’s two Los Angeles shows, an experience she documented on Instagram.

Adele shared a video clip from the show of ‘Dancing On My Own’, in which the music cut out and the 5,000-strong crowd sung the words back at Robyn. In the video, you can hear Adele laughing before joining in with the singalong.

“Robyn tonight at the palladium,” she captioned the post. “I’ve never danced so much.”

Meanwhile, Lawrence recently spoke out about the scenes of nudity in her latest movie Red Sparrow, admitting that they were an “actual nightmare”.

Last week, Lawrence opened up on the psychological impact of her nude photo leak, which left her dealing with “a long period when I didn’t want to be seen sexually and I didn’t want anybody to see my flesh”.

Speaking to the Today Show in Australia, Lawrence said: “It was really scary to say yes to the [Red Sparrow] movie because I knew the only way to tell the story is if I agreed to really do the scenes and go full Monty.

“It took a while to say yes – and the night before I didn’t sleep at all and I was obviously really nervous because it is the actual nightmare of standing in front of a classroom naked. But then after I finished the scene, I felt empowered.”
