Colyn Elliott, who runs a fan account for the “Someone Like You” artist, revealed that Adele herself replied to one of his Instagram Story posts last week.
The post asked for music and added: “We all miss you so much.”
Elliott was then stunned with Adele responded in a direct message: “Your twitter account has entertained me all the way through Covid.
“You look like so much fun! I’m absolutely chuffed you like my music. Keep loving your life, it’s so lovely and infectious to see from every angle.”
Elliott shared the post from his Twitter account, writing: “ADELE JUST DM’D ME ON TWITTER. ALL THROUGH COVID?!?!?!?! OMG. IM BAWLING MY EYES OUT.”
He added a disclaimer that he hoped Adele was happy for him to share the message, as he wanted to tell all his friends.
Adele often uses her social media accounts to interact with fans. She recently responded to another fan in the comments section of a photo, as they asked where her new album is.
“I honestly have no idea,” Adele replied.
She was somewhat shorter with another who claimed an album would drop on a day in June, writing: “Of course it’s not. Corona ain’t over. I’m quarantining. Wear a mask and be patient.”
Adele released her last album, the Grammy Award-winning 25, in 2015.
