Adele is well known for engaging in some friendly banter with her audiences, talking about everything from her love of weightlifting to her recent struggles with jock itch and everything in between. However, this past weekend, her mind was firmly on current events. During one of her chats between songs, Adele paused the show to ask the crowd their thoughts on the Titanic submersible disaster, in which a “catastrophic implosion” killed all five passengers aboard Titan.
Many people have thoughts on whether or not OceanGate Expeditions should ever have even sent the vessel underwater given that it had zero safety certifications and was cobbled together with materials many believed weren’t fit for purpose. However, Adele was more interested in how many people would even entertain the idea of heading down to see the Titanic to begin with.
The “Easy On Me” singer admitted that the whole situation was “so sad and so tragic,” but that she and her friends were obsessed with talking about it. “But I have been debating with my friends on our group chats. Everyone’s like, ‘I would never do that.’ But that’s a lie, ‘cause a lot of people would do that,” she said in a video posted to TikTok.
“I want do a vote, not in mind of what happened, cause that was so sad and so tragic, but before this week, how many people would, if they could, would go down to the very, very bottom of the ocean to see the Titanic? Raise your hands.”
From the loud cheer that came from the audience, it seems clear that many people would be more than happy to head down to the depths of the ocean for an opportunity to see the Titanic wreckage in person.
However, Adele says there’s no way she’d get aboard any kind of submersible to see the Titanic or anything else. Not only is she afraid of what could happen, but it also doesn’t really seem appealing to her.
“I wouldn’t do it either but only because I’m a bit of a p***y. I’m a scaredy cat of everything,” she admitted. “I wouldn’t even go on roller coasters. But also, I just genuinely don’t have an interest in the deep sea or space, so that’s why.”
