"Hello, can you hear me?"
While Adele has previously said the lyrics to her latest smash hit are "not about anything specific," Ellen DeGeneres begs to differ—and insists the song was inspired by a past conversation she had with the British songstress.
"Adele and I are good friends. And a lot of people don't realize her new song is based on a conversation we had," the comedienne reveals on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Cue the hilarious clip (seriously, we dare you not to laugh) in which DeGeneres answers Adele's call on an old school phone—giving the singer's flip phone a run for its money—and complains the Grammy winner's "talking so slowly."
