Adele is just as upset about Brangelina’s split as the rest of us

"The end of an era"


Today, we’re all just trying to find our way in a post-Brangelina world.

The news of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce has split onlookers into two camps: those who couldn’t give a monkeys and respond with Jennifer Aniston jokes, and those romantics who are gutted to see a seemingly happy, stable marriage and family life come to an end.

The split has not just rattled us nobodies in the cheap seats: even George Clooney looked stricken when the news was broken to him – rather insensitively – by CNN.

And last night, Adele spoke of her heartbreak at the news during her concert in New York.

“Brangelina are broken up,” she told the audience. “I mean, I don’t like gossiping, and private lives should be private, but I feel like it’s the end of an era, so I’m dedicating this show tonight to them.

“I’m really sad, genuinely. I don’t know them at all, but I was shocked when I woke up this morning, no word of a lie. I’m glad I spoke about that because it was playing on my mind.”

TMZ has the exclusive video of Adele’s tribute that you can watch here.

A class act as always, Adele.

Now maybe Brad and Angie can console themselves by cry-singing along to ‘Hello’ and ‘Someone Like You’?
