David Spade's 'embarrassing' meeting with Adele

David Spade has recounted his embarrassing meeting with Adele.

The 51-year-old comedian was starstruck when he spotted the 27-year-old singer at a restaurant but admitted that by the time he approached her he was "a little buzzed" and embarrassed himself.

Speaking on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show', he said: "I was like, 'I think that's Adele.' I go, 'I'm not gonna say anything because I'm not like that'. Then I got a few knocks in me.

"I don't want to just bust in, so I do the procedure where I walk up, and her bodyguard is like, 'And you are?' And I go, 'Hey, can I go talk to Adele? I'm sort of a medium star'. I go in. I don't say hello. I don't give the cornball [introduction]. I go, 'Wassup.' I gave her the American one.

"I talked to her and she was very sweet. She goes, 'I'm playing the Staples Center in August.' I go, 'Oh, that whole month is tough for me'. She invites me and I don't even know what I'm saying, because I'm a little loopy, buzzed."

David claims he kept "yamming away" to Adele and her friends and joked it was "probably three or four minutes too long".

He explained: "And I said, 'Let's do this at my house next time. I have a huge back yard.' What am I talking about? Why am I saying this? It was probably three or four minutes too long. Anyway, it was great, very embarrassing. But when you get star struck, I see what happens you don't know what's going on."
