Adele paid a visit to Nikkie de Jager where the two gossiped and drank wine in a video that is sure to go down in the meme history books.

As part of the makeup artist’s Power of Makeup series, Adele had half her face painted by Nikkie and the other half left bare to show – you guessed it – the power of makeup.

During the 30-minute-long video, the pair discuss everything from music, to makeup to… Love Island.

“I can’t bear that show,” the All Night Parking singer said. “My son’s dad loves that and I remember trying to get into it while I was home doing shows… I couldn’t believe it! They’re all having sex on TV!”

Adele has a similar distaste for the Real Housewives franchise, which she said she can’t watch because “my brain will die”.

“Also I don’t know who any of them are, so I don’t feel like I can start from the beginning when it’s been on for so long,” she explained.

She revealed that “one time” she watched an episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, “when they were all literally killing each other, but it was too much – I can’t.”

The 33-year-old was then told about Temptation Island, a Dutch show which sees contestants do all sorts of wild things.

Hearing about it, Adele responded: “People will do anything to be famous, it’s insane!”

This led into a discussion of what being famous is really like, with Adele telling Nikkie that “it’s really not” as glamorous as people think.

“Fame is such a rare thing to happen that it’s hopeful for a lot of people… it gives people a lot of hope,” she said. “But just because you have a successful career doesn’t mean your life is successful, it’s hard to get a balance and it’s quite terrifying living those things out in public.”

Adele has become notorious for disappearing for large periods of time, with her latest album, 30, being released a whopping six years after 25.

The Hold On hitmaker said this helps her deal with being in the spotlight: “I disappear for five or six years. I love it babe!”

Elsewhere in the video, Nikkie treats Adele to a bottle of wine in celebration of fan favourite track, I Drink Wine.

“I can’t drink at the moment because I’m working,” Adele complained, before deciding she can “have a little glass”.

She also spilled the T on her iconic Instagram live on 9 October which sent shockwaves through society.

Adele said that she usually doesn’t have control of her own account because her team are scared of what she might post, but was bored of hearing the same questions in interviews and enjoyed being asked things like “What are your favourite crisps?” by her fans.

She said: “They were worried that if I get drunk, or be annoyed, whatever I would do!”

Despite the live becoming a viral sensation, fans shouldn’t expect another anytime soon as Adele added that she found it too hard to use.
