Make-up free Adele!

She famously puts lots of effort into her lush red locks for appearances at award shows – but when she’s offstage Adele doesn’t appear to be so well acquainted with a comb and brush.   The scruffy-haired singer was pictured out in West London on Saturday looking as if she had just rolled out of bed.


Perhaps she was making an emergency trip to the shops to collect some much needed products to tame her wild locks.

Although the multi award-winning star had been spending most of her time in her Sussex mansion over the past year, she was spotted back in Notting Hill – where her mother Penny Adkins now lives in the singer’s former home – on Saturday.   Dressed in a black poncho and leggings, the mother-of-one popped into a branch of Whistles clearly on a mercy dash to add to her wardrobe.   Despite being free of make-up and without her trademark beehive, the Oscar-winnning singer failed blended into the homogenous mass of shoppers.

Her shopping excursion comes amidst reports Adele is back in the studio recording a follow-up to her 2011 album 21.   With her first album being named 19 and her current age as 24, perhaps we can assume her third album will be named 24.   Last week, the Mirror claimed Adele was on ‘lockdown’ in the studio and was also planning to record some of the album in Los Angeles.   A source told the paper: ‘Adele is currently in a recording studio in London and it’s in lockdown mode for the next few weeks. Four tracks are finished in terms of writing and she’s now laying down preliminary vocals with backing music and singers. The rest of the record will be done in LA.


‘The feel is very much Adele going back to her roots, with some modern jazz and a couple of classic old songs.’   Adele’s last album 21 sold over 25million copies and won her a string of awards.   However, over the past year she’s been taking a break to focus on her personal life, including meeting boyfriend Simon Konecki last year and the birth of their son Angelo last October.   In an interview last year, she said she was in no rush: ‘They’ll come when they’re ready, and when I’ve got something to sing about.   ”I’m just going to lay some concrete, set up home and just ‘be’ for a bit. There will be no new music until it’s good enough and until I’m ready.’   Of course, she was persuaded to come out of her break to record the theme song to the Bond movie Skyfall, which won her an Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe.

royal aganist a host of other children in post apocalyptic panem.


but she is not the only old favourite who returns in the exciting series of images which follow on from
the Effie Trinket ‘Capitol Portrait’ which was release on Monday.

For woody Harrelson will win plenty of cheers for reprising his rol as Katniss mentor Haymitch.

And retro rocker Lenny kravitz and Stanley Tucci both return as Cinna and Caesar Flickerman respectively.


But fans will now turn their attention to the big name stars making an apperance for the first time in the forthcoming film.

Philip Seymour hoffman , who will portray Plutarch Heavensbee, is perhaps the biggest new name , while Jena Malone and veteran Amanda Plummer also join the cast.
