Adele Will Host ‘SNL,’ a Gig She Is Both “So Excited” & “Absolutely Terrified” to Do

Adele is set to host the next episode of Saturday Night Live Season 46. The Grammy winner’s new gig as host of the October 24 show marks her first time on SNL since she performed as a musical guest in 2015. Adele’s 2015 appearance, where she performed “Hello” and “When We Were Young” from her album 25 (her most recent album, by the way), was the second time she’s been a musical guest following her 2008 debut.

News of Adele’s SNL Season 46 hosting gig broke wide late Sunday afternoon. The announcement came less than 24 hours after Insecure‘s Issa Rae hosted the third episode of Season 46 with musical guest Justin Bieber. Adele help spread the word with an exuberant Instagram post of the standard SNL corkboard photo featuring flashcards with the date, her name, and musical guest H.E.R. written on them. As for the caption, Adele wrote, in part,

“Bloooooody hell, I’m so excited about this!! And also absolutely terrified! My first-ever hosting gig and for SNL of all things!!!! I’ve always wanted to do it as a stand-alone moment so that I could roll up my sleeves and fully throw myself into it, but the time has never been right. But if there was ever a time for any of us to jump headfirst into the deep end with our eyes closed and hope for the best it’s 2020 right?”

Adele’s return to SNL is going to be a major moment for her. For the better part of five years, Adele has opted to stay out of the limelight following the success from the release of 25, the subsequent tour, and releasing the theme song for James Bond flick Skyfall. In the time since, Adele has gotten married and divorced, become a mother, and has physically transformed. Her upcoming SNL hosting gig will be her first big public appearance in a long time. While I don’t expect her to have lost any of her grace or charm (because, hello, it’s Adele we’re talking about here), I do wonder how the SNL writers will frame her return to the spotlight. It will set the tone for the new career chapter this hosting gig is (one would think) ushering in. Fingers crossed Adele gets the splashy return she deserves.

Adele returns to Saturday Night Live later this week for the October 24 show on NBC at 11/10c. Check out the singer’s Twitter confirmation below. For more, get updated on the happenings at Peacock.

Radhika Apte needs no introduction to Kollywood fans after her appearance as Superstar Rajinikanth’s wife in ‘Kabali’ directed by Pa Ranjith.  The intense actress impressed with her performance of a meek girl to a mother of a grown-up and especially her reunion scene with Rajini took the audience on an emotional ride.

Radhika is happily married to her British boyfriend Benedict Taylor who is a singer and she shuttles between Mumbai and London to balance her personal and professional life.

Radhika Apte in her most recent interaction with Vikranth Massey on social media from London has admitted that she does not believe in the institution of marriage.  When asked why she got married the talented performer replied that it is easier for married people to get a British visa and that’s why she and her man opted for it in 2012.

Radhika is currently chilling with Taylor in their London home during the lockdown and will soon start filming her next English film ‘Noor Inayat Khan’ in which she plays a spy based on a true story.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

on

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
