- During her opening monologue as host of Saturday Night Live, Adele didn't hold back when it came to poking fun at herself.
- The singer addressed her recent weight loss and her delayed fourth album during the opening bit.
- "Because of the COVID restrictions and the travel ban, I had to travel light and I could only bring only half of me, and this is the half I chose," she joked about her weight loss.
The singer took the stage at Studio 8H as host and didn't hold back when it came to joking about herself. Here are just a few highlights from the monologue:
On her delayed fourth album, which was *supposed* to come out in September:
"I know there's a lot of chatter about me being the host. Like, 'Why is she not the musical guest?' and stuff like that. Well, there's a couple of reasons: My album's not finished, and I'm too scared to do both. I'd rather just put on wigs, have a glass of wine or six, and see what happens!"
On her recent weight loss:
"I know I look different than when you last saw me, but because of the COVID restrictions and the travel ban, I had to travel light and I could only bring only half of me, and this is the half I chose."
On the nerves that come with hosting SNL:
"I'm nervous. You know what I'm like, I always get very nervous on live TV but tonight especially so because I swear a lot. Like a lot a lot. And because I'm British, I tend to skip right over those medium ones and go straight to the worst ones."
