Adele has responded to complaints that she's "too boring" to headline Glastonbury in her typical, straight-talking fashion.

The 27-year-old will headline on Saturday night at the festival in Worthy Farm, Somerset, the festival's Twitter page confirmed on Saturday.

However, some people have been less than impressed with the announcement and have criticised the festival's choice, claiming Adele is "too boring" to be the headline act.

The award-winning superstar has responded to the claims in typical, straight-talking fashion.


"I'm actually more excited than I was now because of all those rock and punk fans have been having a moan that I'm doing it and I'm like: 'You're going to get dragged along by your wife, so just deal with it,'" she said during her show at London's O2 arena this weekend.

"To be honest, those people moaning about it, I've probably been more times than them anyway, so shut up."

Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis tweeted her support of the headline act on Twitter this weekend, following the announcement that Adele would grace the festival's Pyramid Stage on the Saturday night.

The Hello singer recently revealed that she has wanted to play the iconic festival for some time now.

"I wanted to do it last year but my record wasn't ready," she said, reports NME.

"And to the people who say I am too boring to headline, you're more f**king boring for moaning about me headlining."
