Adele swore 33 times during 90 minute Glastonbury headline set after admitting BBC WARNED her about potty mouth
The singer rocked Worthy Farm last night and her mouth got a little dirty on stage as she enjoyed the one in a lifetime moment
Adele brought down the house last night as she thrilled Glastonbury with an incredible performance on the Pyramid stage.
But it wasn’t just her vocal abilities that got people talking, the singer’s expletive laden set caused a storm on Twitter too as some criticised the star for swearing despite children being in the audience and watching at home.
“Adele please stop swearing, there are children watching, as you very well know coz you just brought one on stage! Glastonbury ” one pleaded, while another wrote: ” Adele stop swearing. Children in audience. Inappropriate languageispower”
By our reckoning, Adele swore 33 times during her 90 minute set – that’s one every 2.7minutes!
She couldn’t even get through her first song – Hello – without stopping to tell the crowd “You are f**king amazing!”
After going through three songs straight – she admitted she wasn’t sure what exactly to say – she finally stopped to speak, letting out another stream of expletives.
“Oh my God. Oh my God. Hi,” she said. “This is the best f**king moment of my whole life. Oh my God. Look at you. Can you put the lights on [the audience] more? I want to see them.”
Not everyone was offended though, with many admitted it made them rather like the London born star: “If only for the reason seeing someone swear as much as i do like @adele did tonight made my life”

At one point during the set, she admitted the BBC had warned her about her potty mouth, but clearly she didn’t take any notice: “The BBC had to give me a warning about my potty mouth,” she said. “Bet Muse didn’t get that!”
Based on the amount of expletives she dropped she clearly didn’t care, leading fans to wonder – just how big is Adele’s swear jar?

“I’m enjoying #Adele swearing and chatting away to the crowd at #Glastonbury. It’s like they’re all down the pub having chats and pints.”
And that those complaining should probably pipe down: “So people are complaining that Adele was swearing in front of children at at Glastonbury……it’s 11pm at night…I am I being naive……?
