Before you die of a broken heart over news that Daniel Radcliffe will never be Freddie Mercury, take solace in this: Adele may have landed in the shoes of another legendary queer icon for her first lead role!
Page Six is reporting that the British crooner has taken the part of Dusty Springfield in an upcoming biopic. According to sources, she is “attached to a project, but it’s in the early stages of development.”
May the God of Straight Celebrities Playing Gay rejoice! Think of all the endless combinations of brilliant hairpieces and evening gowns Adele could turn out as the famous ’60s soul singer, and who better to cover the vocals on “Son of A Preacher Man” and “Wishin’ and Hopin‘?”
There’s no word yet on whether she’ll also star in a steamy same-sex love scene, but if she does, let’s at least hope it’s a threesome with fellow young legends Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift, both of whom are also rumored to be involved.
