Sam Smith confronts rumor they’re actually Adele: We’re ‘never in same room’

“Rumor Has It” Adele and Sam Smith might be one and the same. Smith — who is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns — confessed to Drew Barrymore, 47, that the craziest

rumor they’ve ever heard about themselves is that they are secretly Adele in drag. “Everyone seems to think that I’m Adele in drag,” the 30-year-old singer said on “The

Drew Barrymore Show.”  “‘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,” they continued. The conspiracy theory that Smith and Adele, 34, are the same person seems to have started circulating the

internet in 2018 when one person posted a video of Adele’s music slowed down, which ended up sounding like Smith. Has anyone ever seen @samsmith and @Adele in the same

with video “evidence.” Around the same time, another user pointed out that Smith and Adele both didn’t attend the Grammys that year. Did you know that when you

because Adele and Sam Smith are the same person and you’ll never see them both in the same place at the same time,” the person tweeted.
