COPENHAGEN — Singer Adele offered to be a ‘surrogate’ mother to a gay couple who got engaged at her concert.

The 28-year-old singer invited the couple to join her on stage after spotting they were wearing quirky Tiger glasses, reports DailyMirror.

Joining her on stage, Swedish fan Andre Soderberg promptly dropped to one knee and popped the question with a plastic ring to his partner Simon Carlsson, who excitedly said “yes”.

A delighted Adele congratulated the happy couple and then offered to help them start a family.

In front of the sold-out crowd of 10,000 fans, she said: “Should I be your surrogate if you have children? I would love to have a baby with someone Swedish”.

US judge dismisses Taylor Swift ‘Shake It Off’ copyright lawsuit

LOS ANGELES — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit accusing singer Taylor Swift of stealing lyrics for her song ‘Shake It Off’ on Tuesday ruling the phrases in question were not sufficiently original to merit copyright protection.

Songwriters Sean Hall and Nathan Butler brought the suit last fall, arguing that the chorus of the song borrowed from their 2001 composition, ‘Playas Gon’ Play’.

In his ruling, Judge Michael W Fitzgerald held that combining the phrases, ‘Playas gonna play’ and ‘haters gonna hate,’ does not entail sufficient originality to warrant copyright protection, Variety reported.

Swift’s 2014 song reached No 1 on the pop charts and marked her evolution from country to pop music.

Swift’s lyrics from the chorus of ‘Shake It Off’ are, ‘the players gonna play, play, play, play, play, and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.’

Attorneys for Swift asked US District Judge Michael Fitzgerald in January to dismiss the case.

“In order for such short phrases to be protected under the Copyright Act, they must be more creative than the lyrics at issue here,” Fitzgerald ruled, according to court papers.

The songwriters who sued Swift did not allege Swift’s song stole musical elements, the judge said, and phrases about players and haters existed in pop culture before 2001.
