LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Adele and Sam Smith are known for their amazing voices, but it would seem that that’s not all that ties them together! The ‘Unholy’ singer, who goes by they/them pronouns, had recently revealed one crazy rumor about themselves- that they are secretly just Adele, but dressed in drag! The singer, who is slated to appear on ‘The Drew Barrymore Show', had cheekily admitted to everyone thinking that they are Adele in drag.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Smith attributes this crazy theory to both of them having similar voices and the fact that they have never been seen together. This is not a rumor that cropped up yesterday but has been around for a good few years. It began to gain steam when both their fanbases started comparing their voices on social media and pointed out the similarities. This admission comes after Smith had also opened up about one of the craziest gifts they have ever received and interestingly, that is from fellow English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.

Adele reveals we've been mispronouncing her name as she compliments fan for putting it 'perfectly'

The preview was posted on the official handle of ‘The Drew Barrymore Show, in a tweet which was captioned, “Has anyone ever seen @samsmith and @Adele in the same room? Tune in this Monday, January 23rd for more!”


"Everyone seems to think that I'm Adele in drag," Smith says, in the clip when Barrymore asks about the craziest rumor that Smith has been involved in. "Cause we've never been seen in the same room together, and if you slow down her voice it sounds maybe a bit like mine. So people think that we're the same person and I'm just in drag right now."

This is not the only instance where Smith has spoken out about being involved in crazy situations. The ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ singer had received a peculiar gift from Ed Sheeran- a massive marble p***s sculpture, that measures 6 foot 2. Smith had revealed the gift receipt on 'The Kelly Clarkson Show', where they admitted that it was ‘wild' and that they thought it was a "joke."

Sheeran had spoken about why he gave that gift to Smith on ‘The Stephen Colbert Show', Sheeran stated that he had wanted to gift the statue to Elton John and he soon enough, had many others asking for one as well. "Sam was recording at a studio up the road and Sam saw one of them and said, 'Can I have one?' And I said, 'What would you like?'" Sheeran recalled. "And Sam said, 'One the size of me. One that's 6-foot-2.' So there we go. That's it."
