Adele to attend Golden Globes

2013-01-10 18:49
Los Angeles - Adele is set to attend the Golden Globes ceremony in Beverly Hills on Sunday, in what will be her first public appearance since giving birth to a boy in October.

Golden Globe organisers said the 24-year-old British singer would be attending as a nominee, rather than a performer.

Her Skyfall theme song for the latest James Bond film, is in the running for best original song at the Golden Globes - one of Hollywood's biggest awards shows.

Mingling with Hollywood stars

The singer gave birth to her first child in October with her partner, Simon Konecki, but has since kept out of the public eye.

She performed and co-wrote the theme song for Skyfall, a $1bn box office hit, while her Grammy-winning heartbreak album 21 scored the rare feat in December 2012, of topping all US album sales for a second straight year.

Adele will find herself mingling with some of Hollywood's biggest movie and TV stars on 13 January, including Golden Globe presenters George Clooney, Jennifer Lopez and Meryl Streep, and nominees such as Jon Hamm, Ben Affleck, Daniel Day-Lewis, Helen Mirren, Leonardo DiCaprio, Anne Hathaway and Kevin Costner.
