Adele made a discreet exit from the Camden Roundhouse, where she joined an array of celebs to watch Lady Gaga perform her much vaunted opening show at this year’s iTunes Festival.
Dressed in a distinctive patterned outfit, but without her trademark Fifties style make-up Adele kept a very low profile at the event before she was driven back to her Brighton home.
The Rolling in the Deep singer was joined at the event - during which Gaga performed new tracks from forthcoming album ARTPOP - by One Direction star Niall Horan, Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch and Downton Abbey’s Laura Carmichael.
Adele has enjoyed a hugely successful year despite her lack of musical output.
In February she won the Academy Award for Best Original Song for her performance of James Bond song Skyfall, followed by a BRIT Award for Best British Single.
The Tottenham born singer was also awarded an MBE after being named in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for her services to music.
Behind the scenes Adele has been devoting much of her time to parenthood following the birth of son Angelo – her first child with partner Simon Konecki – last year.
The infant celebrates his first birthday on October 19, and the singer reportedly wants to honour the occasion by flying illusionist David Blaine into the UK for a one-off show at her Sussex spread.
A source told the Daily Star: ‘Adele wants a small, intimate family party for Angelo – with a magic theme. Having David there will make it even more memorable and she hopes he can teach the whole family how to do tricks on the day.
‘They got on so well when they met, she is sure he’ll be up for joining the party.’
Despite leaving the entertainment in Blaine’s capable hand, Adele is reportedly playing a hand-on role by baking Angelo’s birthday cake herself.
‘She’s quite good in the kitchen, Adele really wants to bake Angelo the birthday cake herself,’ the source added. ‘She’s also toying with the idea of singing him a special song.’
