Adele gave everybody quite a turn when she announced at a recent concert that she woke up to the tragic news of the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie divorce. “I need to address the elephant in the room,” she said. “It’s the end of an era.” People really took this message to heart, tweeting their praises and calling Adele “one of us.”

It was all kind of sappy and sickening until Adele pulled the rug out from under Brangelina lovers’ feet by revealing she doesn’t care about the power couple at all. In fact, the whole thing was just a joke.
At her show in London at the end of last week, Adele announced, “I would like to say that I think it’s a bit sick that you’re reporting on an absolute joke. I don’t care that they’ve broken up. I couldn’t give a f***ing sh*t.”
She added that the media was playing up her dedication way too much. “They’re making out like I was, like, heartbroken,” she said. “I don’t care. I don’t know them.”
