Taurus queen Adele posts stunning new ‘thirty-free’ birthday portraits

Adele is our Taurus Queen. Her birthday falls on Cinco de Mayo, which was yesterday. She turned 33 years old, or “Thirty-free” as she wrote on her Instagram. Which is clever – with her accent, she probably does say “firty-free, bruv,” but she’s also saying that she’s FREE and in her 30s. No more husband, their divorce was recently finalized. We have no idea if she’s seeing anyone because she keeps her life on lockdown these days. We do know that she lives most of the time in America, in the LA area.

As you can see, Adele gave us some new photos on her IG. That’s basically the only time we get new photos of her nowadays, when she posts photos on social media! It’s really wild. Adele looks good – she’s obviously lost a lot of weight over the past five years or so, but she doesn’t look completely unfamiliar. Same old Adele!

Adele was spotted on Oscar night – she was apparently out partying with Daniel Kaluuya, who is less than a year younger than her! They practically grew up together! As for the new album… no one knows! We have some idea that it could come out at some point this year, but we thought that last year too! We do know that she’s been working on it and recording and we even know some of her producers and session musicians. Will she call it 33? We haven’t had any new music since 2015!!!!!

    Im here for the way Adele is living her best life. Do you you girl!

  2. Cali says:

    Love Adele, but my goodness I think it sucks that getting healthy and losing weight can make you look older. She went from having a youthful face to a look of a mature woman in her 40s

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, I might have mistaken her for Sarah Paulson. Although I tend to think she looks more youthful in person than in photos.

    • Jezz says:

      My mom always says the way to beat aging is slow and steady weight gain to fill out your face. (Unfortunately, I did 10 pounds a year instead of her recommended one pound a year! Haha)

    • Noki says:

      I have noticed that look happens to people who have had gastric bands and drop weight rapidly. Its especially evident around the mouth area ,the creases are very prominent.Jennifer Hudson also had the same look after losing weight.

      • iconoclast59 says:

        Yeah, my sister lost close to 100 lbs if not more on NutriSystem, and the lower half of her face sags. I can’t remember if it was Catherine Deneuve or Coco Chanel who said something along the lines of, at a certain age, you have to choose between your face and your a$$ — you can’t have both. So far, I’ve been choosing my face, LOL.

      • Kebbie says:

        I agree about the gastric surgery. I’ve known a lot of people that have lost massive amounts of weight and they don’t look like this. You just have to take it off slowly. You lose one pound a week for a year or two (or whatever) and it will not age you like this. When you start losing 10+ pounds a month, this is the result.

      • The Recluse says:

        It was Catherine Deneuve who said that. It’s either your face or your figure. The first time I heard it was in reference to Demi Moore’s super fit physique and how it affected her face.

    • Sigmund says:

      Yeah, I noticed too that her face looks older than early thirties. However, didn’t she used to smoke (or still does?). That can also contribute to the lines/early aging.

    • SarahCS says:

      It’s not fair is it? That was my thought particularly with the first B&W photo. Looks like she’s having an absolute blast though.

    • Amando says:

      I’m assuming she had some kind of gastric surgery and it causes people to lose weight very quickly and get that gaunt look. Most of those surgeries don’t work long term so I imagine at some point she will gain some back and fill out a little.

  3. SusanRagain says:

    She looks great + cute dress.
    She can sing! I wish her NBC special was available to buy, she belted out her biggest hits.

    That wonderful big voice, love it! I wish she would release some remakes of her doing motown hits, really lots of horn section and rockin’ songs.

  4. Cat C says:

    She looks amazingly happy and well! She deserves that. Hell, we should all be so lucky!

  5. two_seconds_ago says:

    I’m turning 33 in October. If you hadn’t mentioned Adele’s age I would never have guessed she and I are the same age. She’s probably very fit and healthy but boy does it suck that losing a lot of weight adds years to your face.

  6. Monica says:

    I think what’s more surprising to me about Adele’s new look is not so much the weight loss, but something about her face. What it boils down to I think is darker brows and different eye makeup, or maybe none?

    I feel a little queasy examining pictures like this, but we see so many photos of celebs that when they change their look it can be jarring (ref. Billie Eilish). Either way, I’m glad she’s happy and would love more music if she’s into it.

    • Call_me_al says:

      I think it’s just different styling. She’s not wearing her classic winged eyeliner and updo.

  7. tempest prognosticator says:

    Man, I hope she doesn’t read the comments. Reading about how “old” she looks is nuts.

    • Robyn says:

      Unfortunately with social media and filters, people “forget” what aging looks like. 🙄
      She looks like a normal 33 year old and looks fantastic!

      • Darla says:

        Yes, this happened to me on Facebook about 5 years ago. I saw all my friends pictures and they looked so young. I mean, i have one friend who would post pics and she looked like a 30 yo movie star. We’re in our 50’s. I think we were late 40’s at the time. I didn’t understand what was going on, and I felt really bad about pictures I had at events and gatherings, and I’d be like well I don’t want to post them I look decades older than all my friends. Then one day, I happened to notice this selfie of one of my closest friends and her teeth were blinding. I happen to have really nice teeth, I spent a lot of money on them, and I know my friend didn’t have teeth anywhere near this white. I’m a little obsessed with teeth so I notice them.

        That’s when I had the epiphany. I didn’t even know regular people had photoshop and these filters and airbrushing on their phones! I am really gullible with people I know. And for a while I was kind of mad about this, because I had even mentioned I look older in pictures, and none of them told me what they were doing. They still don’t’ admit it.

        I think Adele looks beautiful btw.

      • lucy2 says:

        A few people I went to high school with filter their photos so much they look like teenagers again. We’re mid 40s. No one is buying it!

        Adele looks happy. Personally I preferred her earlier styling and the makeup she’d do, but she seems like she’s living a great life now and trying new things.

      • Justjj says:

        ITA. We are so immersed in IG culture and the “fast filter” beauty industrial complex, we’ve gone completely away from having any kind of grace for women who show signs of aging. It’s simply unacceptable now that fillers and Botox are so common. She looks normal, happy, healthy, and her skin looks beautiful. She looks like she’s healthy and in her mid 30s ffs

    • Ines says:

      I think she looks fabulous! She looked so matronly when she was larger,

  8. DuchessL says:

    True it sucks that losing that much weight makes you look older. Me, in a desperate attempt to lose weight, I cut my hair to a short bob – I had it down to my waist. I was hoping for 2 pounds lost, but it was just a pound. LOL (50%of goal achieved) fasted pound lost in my life LOL. I thought myself to be toooo smart lol still laughing about it. Freaked my kids and husband. I had long hair since probablY… forever

  9. Alice says:

    She looks haggard.

  10. Kat says:

    Health is def more important than looks imo, so I wouldn’t say it matters that she may look older now!

  11. Watson says:

    She looks happy!! I am glad she living her best life.

  12. MerlinsMom1018 says:

    I ❤ Adele.
    That’s it

  13. Grant says:

    I don’t think she looks “old” because of her weight loss. If she looks old, it’s around her lips/mouth and it’s probably because she was a smoker.

  14. megs283 says:

    She looks gorgeous and happy. And I love that she didn’t photoshop the last photo.

  15. L4frimaire says:

    She looks beautiful. Does she have any new music on the way?

  16. AMJ says:

    I have the same sunken eyes thing, it’s so annoying. This alone makes one seem older. Planning to get rid of mine with fillers because every time I look in the mirror I look exhausted, no matter how great I feel :-/

  17. laura-j says:

    In what world does Adele look old? She looks great, makeup free, and happy.

    Happy Happy Birthday dear Adele, keep living your best life!
