Singer-songwriter Adele’s string of successes continued on late on Sunday evening, as she was awarded Best Original Song, at the 70th Golden Globe awards, held at the Beverley Hilton Hotel in California. Looking stunning in a black dress from Burberry, this was the first public outing for Adele, 24, since she gave birth to her son three months ago.
Adele dedicated the prize to Simon Konecki, her boyfriend, as well as her son, whose name is still to be revealed to the public. Explaining her decision to keep the name a secret, Adele said, “it is a personal decision – I am enjoying having him all to myself and won’t be sharing his name just yet.” Adele also revealed that it was her boyfriend who convinced her to take on the successful project, which saw off competition from Keith Urban, Taylor Swift and Jon Bon Jovi.
On collecting the prize, awarded for her song “Skyfall” the theme to the latest James Bond film of the same name, Adele was visibly ecstatic. She took the stage with the co-writer of the song, Paul Epworth and, in her speech, said the prize was unexpected and, that she was at the ceremony “for a night out”.
