Adele continued her delightfully unfiltered tour this week, calling out those who dare question the legitimacy of her voice.
“Some d–head tried to say that my voice was not me on record,” she’s seen saying in fan-shot video from a recent performance. “Dude, suck my d—.”
The comments could be in response to Tony Visconti, David Bowie’s producer. In an interview with The Daily Star published earlier this week, Visconti was quoted as saying Adele could be among a number of star singers whose voice is enhanced by production. “You turn the radio on and it’s fluff, you are listening to 90 percent computerized voices,” he said. “We know Adele has a great voice but it’s even questionable if that is actually her voice or how much has been manipulated. We don’t know.”

Earlier in May, Adele released a new single titled “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” and debuted the video during the Billboard Music Awards. Her director, Patrick Daughters, recently spoke to EW about the “fantastic” experience.
“She’s super smart,” he said. “She’s a total pro. She’s very funny. She’s very charming. She’s very much a real person. Everybody says, “Yeah, that’s what I thought.” It’s nice for that to be true for once. Sometimes somebody’s image doesn’t always completely align with your experience of them personally, but in this case it very much did. She’s a pretty powerful, special lady.”
