Adele knows how to werk it!

The 33-year-old singer celebrated her three wins at the 2022 BRIT Awards in the best way she knew how: by attending a stripping content at a gay club in London.

There, she stormed the stage to show off some moves of her own. And yes, this included a pole dance.

Over the years, Adele has proven herself to be a gay icon.

The "Take It Easy On Me" singer never fails to be an ally to the LGBTQ community and has done so since the start of her career.

She always does her part, like the time she dedicated an entire show to the victims of the Orlando Nightclub Shooting.

"The LGBTQ community, they’re like my soul mates since I was really young, so I’m very moved by it," she said.

The singer's support for the community can also be heard in her music. She has gone on the record to say that "Set Fire to the Rain" is her gay anthem.

She divulged this in 2011 when she said that the song was a response to her best friend saying that "Chasing pavements" didn't have the makings of a gay anthem.


It's amazing how so many of her songs preach about love and acceptance — two things the gay community needs more of.

Adele has even shared how she would respond if her son was gay.

She shares her son, Angelo, with her ex-husband, Simon Konecki. In an interview with Time, she said, "I can’t wait to know who his best friends are going to be, who his girlfriend or his boyfriend is going to be or what movies he likes…"

She continued on:

"Whatever my kid wants to do or be I will always support him no matter what.” Yass, Adele!

Now, the singer has shown her support in a more hands-on way. She did this recently at Heaven nightclub, where she was celebrating taking home three awards at the BRIT Awards.

She may have also been celebrating something else...

The singer made headlines when she was shown wearing a diamond ring on her left ring finger. This fueled speculation that she got engaged to her boyfriend, Rich Paul.

But back to what really matters: stripping.

Heaven nightclub had a stripping contest that was set up by G-A-Y's Porn Idol. After watching the contestants, Adele decided to get up on the stage herself, where she epically performed a brief pole dance to The Weather Girls‘ “It’s Raining Men."

Naturally, the crowd went nuts!

This included RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star Cheryl Hole who was hosting the event. After Adele's dance, Cheryl gave her the opportunity to choose the winner.

“You can have the final say, you’re [expletive] Adele and I’m little old Cheryl,” Cheryl told the singer, according to The Daily Mail.

“Yes I pick her, I can see you’re [expletive] beautiful, [expletive] lovely," Adele said about the winner she chose.

"[Expletive] confident with all these men around," she continued. "We love being [expletive] females don’t we,” she said.

Cheryl shared many photos online, which sparked an exciting conversation.

"Chez I’ll never get over this family resemblance challenge. Iconic," one wrote. "Omg this is one of those pictures you can hear," another wrote.

Cheryl, you can definitely die happy now!
