Adele began her Vegas residency, called “Weekends with Adele,” in November 2022, after postponing it earlier that year due to delivery delays and COVID-19. The Grammy winner returned to the stage on June 16, after a three-month break, and admitted to feeling nervous. However, she was excited to be back and shared anecdotes about her recent vacation in Miami with friends, where she tried to sneak into a gay club incognito but was recognized. Adele’s residency will run until November 4, 2023.

“Hello,” that’s a little too much information!

Adele revealed she developed a fungal infection commonly known as “jock itch” from performing under the hot lights during her Las Vegas residency.

The English singer told concertgoers at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace over the weekend that the Spanx she wears onstage often leave her clammy.

“I sweat a lot, and it doesn’t go anywhere, so I basically am just sitting in my own sweat, so my doctor [diagnosed] me [with] jock itch,” she said in a video shared by a fan.

According to the Mayo Clinic, jock itch, which gets its name because it is common among athletes, causes “an itchy rash in warm, moist areas of the body” and “often affects the groin and inner thighs.”

“Jock itch, that sounds like I’m a big Nuggets fan,” Adele, whose boyfriend, Rich Paul, is a sports agent, mused. “It looks like I’m a big athlete, right?”

The “Rolling in the Deep” singer, 35, then went on to share that her doctors had prescribed an ointment that she has “to squirt on” herself.
