Adele's friends are obsessed with her Oscar

Adele's friends always want to see her Oscar when they come over to her house.

The 27-year-old singer scooped the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2013 for her track 'Skyfall', the theme song to the James Bond film of the same name starring Daniel Craig as 007.

Adele's pals are always keen to hold the statuette - which is "very heavy" - when they visit her and she has joked they are more interested in the golden trophy than her.

She said: "Having an Oscar is amazing. The statue is really heavy and now when anyone comes round my house the first thing they say is not, 'How are you?' It's always, 'Can I see your Oscar?' "

Adele had a great time when she attended the Academy Awards in 2013 in Los Angeles, even though she had to regularly "pump and dump" her breast milk because at the time she was nursing her now three-year-old son Angelo - her child with her partner Simon Konecki.

Rather than get star-struck mingling the Hollywood elite - which included other winners such as Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway - the 'Hello' hitmaker felt as though she knew all of the A-listers from watching their movies.

Speaking on stage at her 'Adele Live 2016' concert at The O2 arena on Tuesday evening (15.03.16), she shared: "There's no way to say this politely or humbly but I won an Oscar for this next one. Every show so far I've tried to beat around the bush and say, 'Oh you'll never guess what happened to me...' But really when I say Oscar I might as well get to it. I had an amazing time when I went to the Oscars, it was absolutely hilarious seeing all these people that you think you know, bearing in mind I've never seen any of them before, I've never met anyone of them before, because music is not their circle. Then you see these people, who have played these characters who you think you know, therefore you think you have a right to have an opinion of them and judge them personally.

"I was fresh from having my baby and I had a champagne so I was off my face for all of it, I was pumping and dumping at the Oscars!"

Adele is in the middle of an eight-date residency at The O2 and will next perform at the arena this Friday (18.03.16).
