Los Angeles - Seen house hunting in Beverly Hills this weekend with her charity entrepreneur partner Simon Konecki Oscar winning songbird Adele Adkins was said to be over the moon at her Royal Birthday Honors gong, the MBE.
So buoyant was her mood in fact that she even stopped several times to sign autographs for adoring fans and to chat to entertainment industry reporters, all agog to hear her reactions at the prestigious Brit award.
Unfortunately not everyone in the plush Los Angeles suburb is au fait with what the honor stands for as the 25-stone singer found out while stopping for ice cream and burgers off Santa Monica Lewinsky Boulevard:
"Yo, Adele, you gotta moment?" an undercover reporter from iconic local celebwatch website LA HagFagSlagMag.con called out as the singer tucked in to a Ben and Jerry's triple fudge 'n' vanilla sundae.
"Any truth in the rumor that Queen Elizabeth has awarded you the Massive-est Behind in England gong??
"I think your fans should be told."
