Adele made an appearance on make up artist NikkieTutorials‘ YouTube channel and shared a bit about how she interacts with her social media. Mainly, she is not allowed to have the passwords to any of her accounts.
“I was never allowed my passwords for my socials before,” she explained. She claimed it was because her team was concerned about her being allowed to post whatever thoughts came to her, after Nikkie de Jager asked if it was because of possible responses to DMs from fans.
“No, no, no, it’s because they were worried if I’d get drunk or annoyed, whatever I would do,” said Adele. “Not responding to anyone, more just like posting my general thoughts. I didn’t know what a Finstagram was at the time, like a fake Instagram, so I would just share like funny memes and stuff with my actual friends.”
But when the pandemic sent everyone into lockdown, she was given more direct access.
“Obviously the internet was just on fire during COVID,” Adele said, “It kept everyone’s morale up.”

Adele says that this lasted until she posted a photo of herself and was separated from her passwords once again.
“It’s the only picture I ever posted myself, and then they took my password away from me again,” she said, without admitting which photo it was though saying it was a pic “which a lot of people know about.”
It’s been conjectured she was referring to an image she shared of herself wearing Bantu knots at the Knotting Hill Carnival in August of last year, which drew accusations of cultural appropriation. In an interview with British Vogue, Adele said she never deleted the image because she didn’t want to pretend like it didn’t happen after hearing people’s criticism.
“I could see comments being like, ‘The nerve to not take it down,’ which I totally get,” she explained. “But if I take it down, it’s me acting like it never happened. And it did. I totally get why people felt like it was appropriating.”
