While the Adele previously said the lyrics to her latest smash hit are “not about anything specific,” Ellen DeGeneres begs to differ. She insists the song was inspired by a past conversation she had with Adele.
“Adele and I are good friends. And a lot of people don’t realize her new song is based on a conversation we had,” the comedienne reveals on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Cue the hilarious clip in which DeGeneres answers Adele’s call on an old phone model – giving the singer’s flip phone a run for its money – and complains the Grammy winner’s “talking so slowly.”
