Adele reveals she’s battling a fungal skin infection

Adele has confessed that her Vegas shows gave her an unpleasant fungal skin infection.

The singer, 35, quipped that she had ‘jock itch’ after sweating in her Spanx while performing under the hot lights at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

Known commonly as jock itch, tinea cruris is a fungal skin infection of the groin area, affecting the upper part of the thighs, buttocks and lower parts of the abdomen.

Speaking during her latest residency gig, Adele told the crowds that she was ‘so hot’ and her ‘t***’ were sweating’, adding ‘I need a towel, Jesus!’

She went on to explain that her doctor had informed her she had jock itch, saying: ‘It is a bit crude but I never knew it existed!’

Adele went on: ‘Obviously when I do my shows I wear Spanx and keep it all in and make it all fit me.

‘And I sweat a lot and it doesn’t go anywhere. So basically I just sit in my own sweat. And my doctor gave me Jock Itch.

‘So it looks like I am an athlete basically, so I have to squirt it on myself. I don’t know why the f**k I just told you that!’

‘Talking of body acne I have started weight lifting again like no-one’s business. And I am absolutely loving it.’

Adele – who had a three-month break from her Vegas residency – also spoke of her nerves at returning after finishing the first leg of her run in March.

‘All week I had just been buzzing and right then I was stood right there (behind the curtain) and I s**t myself!’ she confessed.

‘We had a very long break and I am gassed to be back. I was bored out of my brains. Somehow I missed you. It is a lovely change. I genuinely love doing these shows and it is the highlight of my week. I was desperate to get back. It is a whole new meaning.’

Chatting away with the crowds, the singer went on to reveal that she had just come back from a ‘beautiful vacation’ with her girlfriends in Miami, admitting she had attempted to sneak into a gay club on the trip but had been instantly recognised.

Adele – who was sipping honey water throughout the show – also spoke about her wild holiday in the Dominican Republic, revealing that she had a four-hour karaoke session that left her fearing she’d lost her voice.

‘I got a bit frightened,’ she confessed. ‘I was hoarse. I didn’t speak for two days afterwards. ‘Another time I did all nighter, which I am too old to do now.

‘I went to bed at 9am. And I can’t do that anymore. It is fun to go out on a big one. But never again. I like to be in bed by 9PM and not AM.
