After months of lying low following her fall throat surgery, Adele is running headfirst into the spotlight with her own hour-long NBC special, to air next month. The feature, “Adele Live in London with Matt Lauer,” will feature an exclusive interview and several performances from her “Adele Live At The Royal Albert Hall” DVD.
NBC has released a preview of the interview (above), which has the British star dishing on celebrity pals, joking about the four pairs of Spanx she wore to the Grammys, discussing the crazy rumors that surround her on a daily basis, and reliving the time she walked through “tourist central” in London, terrified that someone would recognize her. She was wearing color and pajamas — both definite don’t’s for the black-wearing superstar — so naturally, no one knew who she was.
One of the biggest stars in the world, notoriously media-shy Adele has not only won eight Grammy Awards, but her latest album, 2011’s “21,” has sold 8,986,000 copies to date according to Nielsen SoundScan. The sophomore set has also spent 63 weeks on the Billboard 200, with 23 weeks at No. 1.
The NBC special will premiere on June 3 at 8 p.m. ET.
