Lip readers across the internet immediately got to work decoding what the "Easy on Me" singer was talking about. One of the most popular guesses quotes Adele as saying, "She'll have some weed and be like 'Mmmm.' She'll be fab, she'll be fab,' referring to Rihanna's halftime performance.

As it turns out, the internet got it right. According to a video shared by Pop Crave, Adele told the audience at a recent performance what the cameras caught her saying.
"Everyone was texting me a meme of myself ... I was saying, 'She's gonna be fine, she's gonna, like, have some weed and be fine,' but clearly, she couldn't have any weed because she was pregnant!"

The vocalist, who kicked off her Las Vegas residency in November, also joked that her expressive face is what makes her so memeable.
"It's hard work being a constant meme ... Everytime I step out the house," she said. "Maybe it's because I don't have anything, like I don't have any Botox or anything. My face just moves so much, I don't know what it is."
Adele wasn't the only one shocked to find out about Rihanna's second pregnancy — many people working closely with the "Diamonds" singer didn't even know until weeks before the Super Bowl.
Rihanna's stylist, Jahleel Weaver, told Vogue Tuesday that he couldn't believe the revelation.
"She finally told me when we were reviewing sketches, and I was like, 'Is this a joke?'" he said.
