Adele Not Playing Michelle Obama’s 50th Birthday Party After All

It turns out those rumors that Adele would be playing Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday party next year were nothing more than that: rumors. A White House spokesperson has denied claims the British songbird and Super Bowl halftime star Beyonce had been lined up to perform at Obama’s bash next January, blaming the whole fiasco on a British newspaper. “This is 100% false,” the spokesperson said, speaking directly of a report that appeared in NBC News. “It was fabricated by a British tabloid.” 

The original report, which was published in the Daily Mail, claimed that the party was not a state affair and thus would be financed by the Obamas, though Adele’s large appearance fee apparently wasn’t going to be an issue. “Adele has graciously accepted and waived her usual fee for the high-profile private performance,” the source said. “She will sing a selection of her most-loved hits for the First Lady and her friends.”

The gig looked to be the latest feather in Adele’s cap after she took home a Best Original Song Oscar for ‘Skyfall’ last month and turned in a stunning performance at the 85th annual Academy Awards ceremony.
