Janet Street-Porter has blasted Adele’s ‘snivelling’ apology to fans after cancelling her Las Vegas residency.
Writing in her column for the MailOnline, the Loose Women panellist said the singer was ‘self-obsessed’ and accused her of treating her fans ‘appallingly’.
She penned: “I don’t know which was more jaw-dropping; Snivelling Adele’s feeble attempts at an apology to the camera with perfect nails on display, addressing us ordinary folk as if we were queuing for a bag of fish and chips (her actual words ‘My show ain’t ready’) – or the bare-faced cheek of coming to that decision just two days before kick-off.

“This carefully stage-managed attempt at sympathy doesn’t seem believable. Anyone might think she’s been studying footage of the Master of non-apologies Boris Johnson.”
The 75-year-old continued: “She’s been on a journey from wealthy woman to incredibly rich and self-obsessed global star.
“That doesn’t grant you the right to treat fans so appallingly, hoping that a snivelling apology will soften the blow.”
Adele was meant to begin her residency at Caesar’s Palace on Friday and had previously banned unvaccinated fans from attending.
She announced it was cancelled in an emotional Instagram video, stating: “Listen, I’m so sorry but my show ain’t ready.
“We’ve tried everything that we can to put it together in time, and for it to be good enough for you, but we’ve been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and Covid.
“Half my crew and half my team are down with Covid, and it’s been impossible to finish the show.”
She added: “I can’t give you what I have right now, and I’m gutted.
“I’m sorry this is so last minute. We’ve been awake for over 30 hours trying to figure it out, and we’ve run out of time.
“I’m so upset and I’m really embarrassed.”
