UK singer Adele made her first public appearance since giving birth in October last year at last night’s Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles and took home a Globe for her theme to James Bond film Skyfall, written alongside producer Paul Epworth.
Accepting the trophy, Adele gave a candid and funny speech, exclaiming “Oh my God. Oh my God. Honestly, I’ve come out for a night out with my friend. We’re new mums. We’ve literally come for a night out, I was not expecting this. It’s very strange to be here and thank you so much for letting me be part of your world for a night. It’s amazing, we’ve been p***ing ourselves, you know.”
Adele, 24, also thanked Daniel Craig, who stars as Bond in the film and her partner, charity boss Simon Konecki. She said “He’s been such a wonderful Bond, and to my boyfriend Simon who convinced me to do it, and to my lovely son – thank you so much.” Addressing Craig, Adele added that the actor “really turned the vibe around” and will “be my Bond forever.”
Backstage the star declined to reveal the name of her newborn son, saying it was “too intimate” but, did talk about how working on a Bond theme was much different to her usual songwriting. She told the Daily Telegraph newspaper “It’s absolutely amazing, it’s very surreal and quite hilarious because this is not my normal field. My inspiration normally comes from heartbreak but I don’t think I’m going to be devastated again. I had my child two weeks before the film came out so it was bad timing. It was such an honour to be involved. Normally I write about my misery and this time I wrote according to someone’s script. It’s absolutely amazing. I took the risk and I’m very proud of it.”
Adele beat out Taylor Swift, who was nominated for her song Safe and Sound from The Hunger Games soundtrack. Both women were nominated for their first Golden Globe last night.Tweet
