Adele Talks About Her Beard Named Larry, Yes You Read That Right

Adele you and me together

Is she singing about Larry?

Every time Adele performs a concert on her 25 tour, an angel gets its wings. Or if not that, at least we fans fall more in love with her. Between proposals and photobombs and twerking, she just keeps proving that we lowly non-Adeles don’t deserve to be graced by her awesomeness.

According to Metro, at her recent concert in Glasgow, Adele talked about her beard. And no, I don’t mean that word the way I usually do when I talk about celebrities. I mean her facial hair.

While admiring the beards in the crowd and talking about her partner Simon Konecki’s beard, the topic of her own facial hair came up. She says it’s something that happened while she was pregnant with her son Angelo:

“There are a lot of good beards here. My man’s got a good beard and trims it sometimes in the summer. It really annoys me – but I do have a beard myself. I understand when it gets hot.”

She further explained, “When I got pregnant I had so much testosterone in me that I grew a beard.” And as if her talking about it openly to a crowd of people weren’t enough proof that she’s not ashamed of it, she added that she actually gave it a nickname: “I’m proud of it. I call it Larry.”

She calls her beard Larry, you guys. I guess now is a good time to mention that when I was 13 I named my feet, and I gave the left one the name Larry. Does that mean Adele and I should be best friends? I don’t know. You tell me. (It does.)

I am also reminded of an episode of 30 Rock (what else is new) wherein Liz Lemon introduces everyone to her mustache, which she named Tom after Tom Selleck. So where did Larry come from? Does Adele ship Harry and Louis from One Direction? Don’t rule it out.

Oh, and by the way, she also revealed that she hadn’t shaved her legs for the show:

“If anyone gets a glimpse of my really hairy legs I’m really sorry but I’ve got a weekend off, so no need to shave my legs.”

No word on what her leg stubble is called.
