Entertainment: Adele accidentally kisses fan onstage

Adele battles nerves as she wows fans at the Glastonbury festival

  Adele battles nerves as she wows fans at the Glastonbury festival The star switched the lyrics of her chart-topping record to, "I'm at Glastonbury dreaming about who I used to be", as she took in her location. "Glastonbury means the world to me, I'm not even lying," she said later. "I've always wanted to do this my whole life but I've been too scared." Adele, who famously suffers from stage fright, previously ruled out ever performing at Glastonbury due to her fear of the big stage. She said last year: "I think I have made myself pretty clear on Glastonbury. "The crowds are too big – I don't know if I could do it." On stage, the 28-year-old songwriter then found a young girl in the crowd and told her she's been coming to the festival "since I was your age" and invited her on stage for an impromptu selfie. The star, said at the end of the 90-minute performance: "I didn't want to come on and now I don't want to go off. "I have never been so moved by anything in my life… This is, by far, the best moment of my life so far." Adele's set at Glastonbury looked absolutely mind blowing. — Mandy Gardner (@mandyPOW) June 26, 2016 Her 90-minute, 15-song set was watched by musicians like Robbie Williams and James Corden, amongst others. Adele is a proper star. Outrageous talent, incredible personality & extraordinary connection to her audience.

The Hello hitmaker brought her Adele Live 2016 tour to Vancouver, Canada, where she invited a 21-year-old fan, identified as "Wizzy" on Twitter, to the stage at Rogers Arena.

He told his idol he had come all the way from his native Nigeria for the show, and, clearly moved by his dedication, Adele went in to give him a hug. However, as he was readying his phone to snap a selfie, he turned his head just as the star leaned in to kiss his cheek, and she ended up landing on his lips instead.

While the fan was ecstatic about the slip up and began jumping up and down, the British singer immediately acknowledged the kiss and jokingly told the crowd, "Thank God my man ain't here (sic)!," referring to her longtime beau Simon Konecki.

Independent vs major label: What Adele's £90m Sony Music record deal means for XL Recordings

  Independent vs major label: What Adele's £90m Sony Music record deal means for XL Recordings Adele landed one of the biggest record deals in music history after signing a £90m ($68.5m) contract with Sony Music. It means the Hello singer will part ways with XL Recordings following 10 successful years with the independent label. With three record-breaking albums released under the imprint, some have questioned it is wise for XL to let go of their biggest artist but music lawyer Robert Horsfall applauds the label. Horsfall, of Sound Advice, has more than 30 years experience in the music legal field and has spent 15 years directly representing artists. Record labels typically tend to sign artists to three-album deals and Adele, 28, released her chart-topping third LP 25 in November 2015 under XL, selling more than 20-million copies to date. In May 2016, reports claimed that Adele was signing a new global deal with Sony securing the largest record contract in UK history. Explaining the transition, Horsfall told IBTimes UK at IMS Malta 2016 in June: "An infant label will be quite happy to sign a three-album deal. XL signed Adele to three albums and that's why she's now free to move to Sony. "It's really commendable that XL haven't shifted away from three albums, it's always been their policy. Some people may say, 'Aren't they a bit foolish to lose Adele at this point in her career?' but XL's philosophy is that if the artist wants to renew with them for a fourth album on their traditional deal model then they're happy.

"Oh my God, I haven't been kissed by another man in like six years!" she added. "He just snogged (kissed) me!"

The pair then went on to take a proper selfie, which Wizzy posted on Twitter.

"Adele has hit the stage! And here I am with her! Who gon (sic) check me boo," he wrote in the caption.

Adele and Simon, who share three-year-old son Angelo together, have been dating since 2011 - the last time she embarked on a world tour.

The Grammy winner kicked off the current trek in Belfast, Northern Ireland in late February, and toured throughout Europe, where Simon was seen joining his girlfriend in various cities.

He reportedly decided to stay home in their native England instead of join Adele for the North American leg due to his work with charity Drop4Drop, although he plans to fly out for certain stops along the way, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.

The Adele Live 2016 tour includes a total of 105 concerts across 18 countries, and she will wrap up the extensive trek in Mexico in November.
