“If you’ve got nothing nice to say, keep it to yourself. Okay?” Adele remarked during her June 1 performance.

Adele swiftly addressed a negative remark made by an audience member during her Las Vegas residency show on June 1, coinciding with the start of Pride Month. While the specific comment wasn’t captured on camera, Adele, aged 36, responded to the sentiment, reportedly stating, “Pride sucks,” in a fan-recorded video.

Adele promptly tackled a disparaging comment from an audience member at her Las Vegas residency show on June 1, coinciding with the beginning of Pride Month. Although the exact remark wasn’t recorded, a fan’s video captured Adele, 36, responding to the sentiment, reportedly saying, “Pride sucks.”

“Did you come to my f—— show and just say that Pride sucks? Are you f—— stupid?” the “Hello” singer questioned the audience member. Adele’s response was met with cheers from the crowd at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. “Don’t be so f—— ridiculous,” she continued. “If you’ve got nothing nice to say, shut up. All right?”

Adele, a Grammy winner renowned for her candor and distinctive wit, consistently shares her opinions and humor during her Weekends with Adele shows.

Last month, following a hiatus from performing to rest her voice, the singer praised Sabrina Carpenter’s hit track “Espresso” during a break between songs. Adele also shared with the audience how adjusting back to Las Vegas’ time zone after her break affected her body, humorously stating, “I nearly pissed myself because my whole body clock was out of sync.” She further elaborated on her routine, mentioning the challenges of needing to use the restroom while on stage due to her habitual early bedtime to preserve her voice.

Continuing her reference to Carpenter’s chart-topping track, Adele shared, “As I got into bed last night — ’cause that’s a very late night for me, normally I’m in bed by 9 p.m. — I found myself singing, ‘I’m working late, ’cause I’m a singer.’ ” She enthusiastically added, “That Sabrina Carpenter song! ‘I can’t relate to desperation.’ That song is my jam!”

In July 2023, the star addressed concert etiquette, particularly in response to incidents where artists like Bebe Rexha, Kelsea Ballerini, and Billie Eilish were targeted with flying objects on stage. In fan-captured footage, Adele expressed her frustration, stating, “Have you noticed how people are forgetting f—— show etiquette at the moment? People are throwing s— on stage. Have you seen that?”

She jokingly continued, holding a T-shirt cannon, “I f—ing dare you — I dare you throw something at me. I’ll f—— kill you.”
