Did you know that Adele was born on Cinco de Mayo? It’s true! I didn’t know that. Adele celebrated her 30th birthday this weekend and apparently she really went all-out. She threw herself an absolutely enormous Titanic-themed birthday party. She cast herself as Rose, complete with a vintage-looking costume and an antique-looking life vest, as you can see in the Instagram photos she posted (it’s a slideshow, above). I spy Sam Taylor Johnson dancing along with Adele. Did everyone wear life vests? Did everyone have to rent their own Edwardian costumes? Adele posted the photos with this message:
Dirty 30! I’m not sure what I’m going to do for the next 30 years as I’ve been blessed beyond words in my life so far. Thank you to everyone for coming along for the ride the last 11 years with me. My family and friends for entertaining my super fandom of the Titanic movie. Last night was the best night of my life. Here’s a couple pics. I’m absolutely f–ked, not sure I’ll make it out the house again!
Ps Childish Gambino how the hell do you have time to offer us so much greatness on so many platforms. I adore you x
There are some sites – I won’t say which ones – claiming that some people are offended by Adele using a “Titanic theme.” To be clear, I think the theme was for the movie, not the actual historical event. She was dressed like Rose, a fictional character. But even if she did a theme based on a historic disaster which claimed the lives of 1503 people, I still wouldn’t be offended, really. This isn’t “too soon.” The Titanic disaster happened more than a century ago!! *quietly makes plans for a Hindenberg-themed birthday party*
