Adele Jokes About Her Weight Loss, Says Her Album Is 'Not Finished' During 'SNL' Opening Monologue

Adele…still isn’t finished with her album.

While making her hosting debut on ‘Saturday Night Live’ this evening, Adele crushed the hopes of everyone hoping for a new Adele album before the end of the month.

“Hello, it’s me,” she began, referencing her smash 2015 hit “Hello.”

“My God, I’m absolutely thrilled to finally be hosting this show. Not only do I genuinely love this show, but it’s the show that broke my career in America, 12 long years ago. You see I was the musical guest back in 2008 when Sarah Palin came on with Tina Fey, so obviously a few million people tuned in to watch it. And well, the rest is now history,” she said. “Now, I don’t anything about American politics, I mean I’m British you know, and I don’t want to say anything too political, but I’ll just say this: Sarah Palin, babes, thanks for everything.”

The singer also addressed why she isn’t also the musical guest. “I know there’s been a lot of chatter about me just being the host. Like, ‘Why isn’t she the musical guest?’ There’s a couple of reasons. My album’s not finished and I’m also too scared to do both. I’d rather just put on some wigs and this is all mine by the way,” Adele said as she touched her long locks.

In addition, the mom of one joked about her weight loss. “I know I look really, really different since you last saw me. But actually, because of all the COVID restrictions and the travel bans, I had to travel light and I could only bring half of me. And this is the half I chose,” she said before taking a bow.

Now that she’s done with ‘SNL,’ we need for Adele to get back in that studio. It’s getting cold outside and a new Adele album would be SO soothing right about now.
