Hello from the older side…

Adele turned another year older today, ringing in her 29th birthday with a hilarious tweet to her fans.

She posted a series of photos of her, er, makeover, looking like an old lady complete with the wrinkled skin, gray hair, glasses and outfit. “Nearly 30!” she wrote in the tweet. “Thanks for the well wishes. See you soon x”

Well, despite dressing up like an old lady (and making some funny faces to go with it) she still managed to look good…because, Adele.

Not to mention, Adele should really have no fear of turning 30. After all, she’s accomplished more in her 29 years than most people will throughout their entire life!

She’s racked up a whopping 15 Grammy awards in her career and even made history this year as the only artist in Grammy history to sweep the Album, Record and Song of the Year twice

Furthermore, her 2015 single “Hello” accumulated nearly 2 billion views on YouTube and broke Taylor Swift ‘s record for the most views in 24 hours. The track alone set a landmark record as the first song to sell over a million digital copies in its first week. 

Later that year, she dropped her full album 25 to instant success. It became the fastest-selling record within its first week.

Fast forward to 2016, and she embarked on her sold-out world tour for the album. It was reported that an approximate 10 million people attempted buying tickets for the 750,000 United States seats available.

And let’s not forget, on top of all of this, she’s first and foremost a mama to her 4-year-old son, Angelo.

Happy birthday, Adele, and cheers to another amazing year for you!

Dear White People's Logan Browning Has a Few Direct Messages of Her Own to Share

Playing the host of the incendiary campus radio show Dear White People on the must-watch Netflix series of the same name, breakout star Logan Browning has gotten a crash course in getting her point across in as direct a way as possible.

After watching her deliver the truth tea to the naively racist students of Winchester University as budding activist Sam White throughout Dear White People‘s 10-episode first season, we wanted to give Logan herself the chance to deliver a few messages of her own. So when E! News’ Zuri Hall met the actress for a chat at Paint and Sip Studios LA, she asked Logan how her Dear… message would begin to a handful of Hollywood’s biggest stars.

From Beyoncé to Bieber, she didn’t hold back—though, unlike Sam, Logan’s messages were a bit more complimentary. However, it’s her most personal message that’s stood out as our favorite. Yep, we’re talking about her sweet words for her mom. To see all of Logan’s messages, check out the video up top!

In an effort to get to know our new fave a bit better, Zuri also challenged Logan to reveal three things about herself that her fans might not know. And we’ve got to say, we did not see her Krav Maga training coming. “I’m always tying to beat somebody’s butt,” she admitted. “Usually it’s one of my friends and I let them try to choke me or put me in a hold, and then I show them I can get out of it.”

How long has she been training, you ask? “I started six years ago,” she told Zuri. “I’m OK.” Something tells us Sam White would be proud.

For Logan’s other secrets, check out the video above.

Season one of Dear White People is available for streaming now on Netflix.
