Adele is one of the biggest artists of the decade, but her management team won’t let her run her own Twitter account.

In this week’s taping of her BBC special, Adele at the BBC, she performed her record-breaking single “Hello,” spoke with Graham Norton, and while answering questions from fans in the audience, she revealed she’s not allowed to tweet on her own.

“Rumor has it, you’re not allowed access to your own Twitter account,” someone in the crowd asked. “That is true, yeah,” she answered, laughing. “I’m not a drinker any more, but when Twitter first came out I was drunk tweeting and nearly put my foot in it quite a few times. So my management decided that you have to go through two people and then it has to be signed off by someone. But they’re all my tweets. No one writes my tweets. They just post them for me. So yeah, that’s very, very true.”

The BBC special is set to air in the UK on Nov. 20, the same day her album 25 comes out.
