25 Celebrities Respond to the Destruction of Their Careers by Adele’s ’25’

The Event Album We Deserve
Why We Need Adele's '25' Now More Than Ever

Something tells us they aren’t crying because they’re feeling the emotion of the music.

Adeles massive 25 drops tomorrow — buy it on Amazon! — and if the success of lead single “Hello” and first-week sales predictions are any indication, no other release this year (or next) will compare to its impact. Sorry, literally every other person who makes music!

We, the editorial geniuses at Celebuzz, reached out to the aforementioned creators of pop and asked for their reactions to the sure-to-be-historic release. We were able to, not coincidentally, get statements from 25 popular artists.The results were overwhelmingly dark. Fortunately for the visually minded — though, it must be said, also bizarrely — each artist also provided a GIF to suit their troubled feels. These reactions are all definitely 100 percent real, meaning that I didn’t just make them up in an attempt to throw shade. I repeat: these statements are authentic.* Please, now, find out what today’s most popular artists have to say about the return of Queen Adele.

1) Rihanna: “Don’t phucking ask me about R8 until at least 2024.”
