Over the holiday weekend, Adele performed at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace as part of her Las Vegas residency, Weekends With Adele. During a Friday night show, the “Easy On Me” singer brought up the viral TikTok mash-up of her 2015 hit, “Water Under the Bridge,” and Megan Thee Stallion’s “Body.”

“Someone said, ‘Why doesn’t Adele have backup dancers?'” said Adele. “And then someone made a video of ‘Water Under the Bridge’ with Meg Thee Stallion doing the dance to it. Remember that?”

She then shifted gears to the verdict in Megan’s trial saying, “Well today … tonight, I would like to wish Meg the Stallion a very, very merry, merry Christmas! Girl, get your peace. Do whatever you want now, baby! I love ya!”

Lanez was found guilty on Dec. 23. The case centered around an alleged 2020 shooting at a Hollywood party hosted by Kylie Jenner. The trial ran for nearly two weeks.

The verdict was handed down by a Los Angeles jury. Lanez was convicted on three counts—assault with a semiautomatic firearm, carrying an unregistered firearm in a vehicle and discharging a firearm with gross negligence. Lanez’s sentencing is slated for Jan. 27. He faces up to 22 years in prison.

In other Adele news, the singer has added a New Year’s Eve date to her Vegas residency.

“New Years Eve has always been a let down for me,” she wrote in a post on social media. “I seem to always end up spending it in a car on my way to or from somewhere! But not this year!! I’ll be ringing 2023 in on stage!! I dress up to the nines on NYE and I would love it if those of you that come would too! Let’s go all out black tie vibes.”
