Adele Is Selling Handmade Pom Poms On Etsy Because, Why The Hell Not?

The 29-year-old has admitted she's making pom poms and selling them on Etsy, and it's just another thing to prove how cool she is.

Having first hinted she may never tour again while on stage in Auckland in March ('The only reason I've toured is you. I'm not sure if touring is my bag'), earlier this week Adele took pen to paper to explain to her adoring fans why she feels reluctant to hit the road again after 15 months of touring.

In her concert programme, she explained: 'Touring is a peculiar thing, it doesn't suit me particularly well. I'm a real homebody and I get so much joy in the small things. Plus I'm dramatic and have a terrible history of touring.

'Until now that is! I've done 119 shows and these last 4 will take me up to 123, it has been hard out an absolute thrill and pleasure to have done. I only ever did this tour for you and to hopefully have an impact on you the way that some of my favourite artist have had on me live,' she added.

And while we know Adele loves singing along to the Spice Girls, spending time with her song Angelo, sipping on several cups of tea a day and gushing over Beyoncé, we're a tad concerned what the 28-year-old will do with so much spare time on her hands if she stops touring for good.

However, Adele is quick to point out she won't be twiddling her thumbs any time soon, having joking with her Wembley Stadium crowd earlier this week that she's set up a craft store to sell fluffy pom poms.

Yup, that's right. Adele is a pom pom-maker.

Following months of tour dates, Adele admitted on Wednesday evening that she's been keeping busy on the road by making fluffy balls.

'I've got a new secret hobby,' she told the crowd. 'I mean I say hobby, it'll probably only last a few days!

'I have a new hobby making pom poms. I'm quite good at it! I am such a natural – I made a real cat on purpose,' she revealed.

'I've even set up an Etsy account,' she added.

This might just be the best thing we've heard all day. And, given the fact the 'Someone Like You' star reportedly spat out a whopping 56 expletives during her concert on Wednesday night, we're slightly hoping her pom poms might have some subtle swear words embroided onto them.

Adele was recently spotted visiting victims and servicemen and women following the Grenfell Tower tragedy earlier this month, and has recently taken the time during the latter section of her tour to ask her fans to donate to charities that are helping those affected.

She told the crowd that having seen the aftermath of the tragedy first hand, it was 'one of the most intense experiences of my lives'.

'They're not receiving the things we think they are. It's a f*cking mess. No information is getting through, people feel helpless,' she added.

Explaining they raised over £100,000 the day before, she told her fans: 'I'm raising money for the survivors and it's important they get money they get to control.

'There's no plan for the aftermath so I'll look after that money until they know how they want to spend it. I've met the people who wrote the letters and were ignored. They're still being ignored,' she added.

Please don't leave us Adele.

A pom pom from Etsy can't replace your presence in our lives.
