Adele is celebrating her 33rd birthday today.
And as one of her close friends, Laura Dockrill, took to social media to mark the singing sensation’s special day, she shared a never-before-seen photo of the hitmaker Hello captured at a fancy dress party.
In the offer, the BRIT School alumni watched worlds far from her usual self as she morphed into the late pop star George Michael.
The mother-of-one did everything for the party, donning a puffy wig, aviator sunglasses and painted thatch.
Adele emulated Faith George’s musician – who sadly passed away aged 53 on Christmas Day in 2016 – by striking a steel pose as Laura stood behind her, dressed in an elaborate Beetlejuice costume .
Along with the funny snap, Laura wrote on Instagram, “Make sure your best friend is with someone who also goes to fancy dress parties not dressed as a sexy cat. Complete the brief. Nail the duty. Happy birthday.”
In 2017, Adele shared how she was a huge fan of George when she covered her Grammys hit Fast Love as a tribute to the icon.
The singer was almost 30 seconds into the song when, clearly disturbed by the sound, she stopped and dropped the F-bomb.
“I f ** ked up, can’t do it again like last year,” she said, visibly upset.
“I’m sorry, I can’t ruin this for him.”
As the crowd cheered, Adele repeated the song again, this time in the correct key.
Although she received huge applause at the end of her performance, the singer struggled with her emotions and gushed.
Behind the scenes at the event, the Tottenham native said she was around ten when she fell in love with George’s song Fastlove.
She said, “When the video came out for that, I was blown away by how hot he was. It’s actually pretty exceptional how good-looking he was.”
Reflecting on how devastated she was to find out about George’s death, she said: “I actually had to walk around on my own and breathe for a while.”
