Clips of Adele at the Super Bowl gained traction online, with viewers speculating over what the 'Hello' singer was saying as she chatted to two men she was sat with in the audience.

Many eagle eyed observers believed she was discussing Rihanna's upcoming Half Time performance, when she supposedly said: "She’ll have some weed and she’ll be like [calm emoji] she’ll be fab, she’ll be fab."

This interpretation of Adele's words was initially left unclear as the person filming her was not sat close enough to hear her speaking clearly.

However, Adele has now confirmed that this is actually what she said of Rihanna's much anticipated comeback performance.

Speaking to her fans on Friday night (17 February), Adele said: "I was saying, ’she’s gonna be fine, she’s gonna, like, have some weed and be fine, but clearly she couldn’t have any weed because she’s pregnant!"

Fans were delighted to finally have confirmation on what was actually said at the Glendale stadium.

One Twitter user wrote: "The fact the lip readers were right!," while another tweeted: "She is a living meme! We love her for that."

Adele said: "I don’t know what it is about my f**king face, but every time I slip out my house [I become a meme]

"Maybe it’s because I don’t have any Botox or anything and my face just moves so much, I don’t know what it is."
