Adele framed Celine Dion’s used gum | — Australia’s leading news site



Imagine being so enamoured of your idol that you would frame something that was once in their mouth. Eww.

    Some gum like you.

    Adele loves Celine Dion so much, she owns a piece of the singer’s gum — post-chew, reported Page Six.

    During Vogue’s most recent “73 Questions” YouTube segment, Adele, 33, confessed that a framed piece of the “Because You Loved Me” artist’s gum is her most prized possession.

    “James Corden, who’s a friend of mine but also does Carpool Karaoke, which I did, he did it with her and knew how much of a fan of hers I was,” the “Easy On Me” singer explained. “And so he made her spit her gum into a piece of paper and framed it for me.

    “And it’s my proudest possession!” she added with a smile and slight giggle.

    She later claimed Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” is the song she’s covered the most throughout her life.

    Dion, 53, was featured on Carpool Karaoke in May 2019, where she sang “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now,” “I Drove All Night” and even gave “Baby Shark” a go while riding with Corden.

    Dubbing Dion “Queen Celine,” Adele paid a visit to her idol back in 2018, attending one of her Las Vegas shows as Dion recovered from a horrific bout with the flu.

    “Wasn’t able to do all my shows, but was thrilled that Adele came to one of them … I love her so much,” the Grammy winner captioned a backstage photo at the time.

    Wearing a Celine Dion shirt, Adele responded, “Queen Celine! What a show, an absolute highlight of my life. Thank you so much for the attention to your crowd and insane humour.”

    Instagram Is Rolling Out Reels Replies, And Will Be Testing A New Feature Which Informs …





    Instagram has added a few more social features to the platform, with Reels Replies being rolled out. Along with the Replies, anew feature is being tested that shows when two users are active together in the same chat.

    Reels has been performing much better than perhaps even Instagram ever anticipated. The TikTok-inspired new video format (which officially claims to have absolutely no relation to the former) had some trouble really finding its footing initially. However, Reels has grown massively and while it may not be a source of the most direct competition to TikTok, it is indeed a worthy alternative.

    Reels has grown to the point that it has a massive creator program attached to it, and the video format has even been migrated to Facebook with the goal of generating further user interest there. Naturally, with such a successful virtual goldmine on its hands, Instagram has been hard at work developing new features and interface updates for Reels, integrating it more and more seamlessly into the rest of the social media platform. Features such as Reels Replies are a major part of such attempts at integration.

    Reels Visual Replies are essentially just what they sound like: A Reel that is being used to reply to someone. It’s a feature that’s been seen frequently across TikTok as well. Reel Replies essentially take a user’s comments, and reply to them in video format. The comment will then show up within the Reel itself as a text-box, taking up some amount of space, and showing both the user who issued said comment along with the text. The text-box is apparently adjustable, with users having the ability to move it around and change its size depending on where it obstructs one’s Reel the least.

    Overall, it’s a fun addition to the Reels format, even if the credit should be going to TikTok first. At any rate, it’s an example of Instagram really utilizing Reels’ social media capabilities, outside of just serving it up as a form of entertainment.

    Speaking of social media capabilities, a new feature might help alleviate one of the most common frustrations encountered across all such platforms. Isn’t it annoying when you see that a friend’s online, but isn’t replying to your chat? Sure, they’ve probably just put their phone down to run a quick errand, but there’s no way for you to know, right? Well, there sort of is now! Instagram is beta testing a new feature via which if both users are active within a chat, the platform will display that accordingly. It’s a work-around, sure, and one that’s currently being tested for usefulness, but it’s still a very nice, and even fresh, addition to the social media game.

    Now, the active status will only appear when you are both active at the same time.#Instagram #instgramnewfeature@MattNavarra @instagram @alex193a
