Adele is a certifiable queen, with sold-out concerts, multiple Grammys, and an absolutely staggering fan-base.
Still, one fan may be going a bit too far with this most recent eBay listing. A recent concert-goer, Shaun McDonough, bagged some air from Adele‘s performance and posted it to the bidding website, where it went on to reach over $1,500 in an unprecedented bidding war.
We’re not completely sure whether to critique him for exploiting fans or applaud him for being an entrepreneurial mastermind.
The listing has since been removed, but the product was listed as “like new,” from Adele‘s March 13 Australia concert, and included the selling point: “A true fan must have this air.”
…Must they? An autograph would probably be cheaper. Or even, you know, concert tickets, where you can breathe in her air in-person.
“I can’t possibly accept this award,” Adele said while accepting Album of the Year. “And I’m very humbled and I’m very grateful and gracious but my artist of my life is Beyoncé and this album to me, the Lemonade album, was just so monumental, Beyonce. It was so monumental and so well thought out, and so beautiful and soul-bearing. We got to see another side to you that you don’t always let us see, and we appreciate that, and all us artists here who adore you. And you are our lives, and the way that you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is empowering, and you make them stand up for themselves, and I love you. I always have and I always will.”
Celebs took to Twitter to gush over both ladies and how inspiring they are. Check out what Dove Cameron and other stars had to say:
i usually don't post about award shows but. that beyoncé performance just cut me in half. she is the definition of strength in vulnerability
Most recently, Demi surprised fans by performing an amazing rendition of Aretha Franklin‘s classic song “Natural Woman.” We hope that she continues to break out some other artists’ songs for future shows!

Adele was just named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People.
The 27-year-old “Hello” songstress’ friend Jennifer Lawrence wrote about her for the piece.
“Her patience and kindness all wrapped up in the tough skin of a damn gangster,” Jen wrote. “She’s an extremely private person, so I will do my best to honor her privacy. But we all see her success. Her undeniable talent and beauty. But what you don’t see is what a wonderful mother she is. What a wonderful partner and friend she is. That she makes her son’s Halloween costumes.”
She added, “Adele is a gift, an international treasure, but she’s also sweet, funny, intelligent and beautiful. Bitch.”
