Adele's NBA All-Star appearance births a new meme
Adele parties in LGBTQ+ nightclub Heaven

Adele recently made an appearance at the NBA's All-Star Game on Sunday where she was spotted courtside alongside her boyfriend Rich Paul.

Because the internet loves moments like these, it instantly became a new meme.

"Me avoiding someone when I see them in public," wrote one fan.

Another tweet read: "Me in deep thought thinking about what I’m eating when I leave:"
