Adele is honoring late Friends star Matthew Perry.

The British songstress paused her Las Vegas residency show to remember Perry, who was found dead in a hot tub at his Los Angeles home on Saturday (Oct. 28). He was 54.


“I’ll remember that character for the rest of my life,” Adele told the audience at Colosseum at Caesars Palace of Perry’s Friends character Chandler Bing. “He’s probably the best comedic character of all time.”

Adele, who was dressed up as Morticia Adams for Halloween, dedicated her song “When We Were Young” to Perry.

“It is always so shocking, especially someone that made you laugh and who brought so much joy to your life that you don’t know,” the singer-songwriter said. “This is what I find so strange, I never met him in my life. There is something, you feel so sad about it especially because you don’t necessarily know what was going on.”

She continued, “One of my favorite memories of when I was younger, with my friends, and one of my friends Andrew when I was 12 did the best Chandler impression, and he would do it all the time to make us laugh. And if anyone was having a bad day or feeling low, he would pretend to be Chandler. And I will remember that character for the rest of my life.”

Adele, who recently announced that she has quit drinking alcohol, also touched on Perry’s his problems with substance abuse.

“He was so open with his struggles with addiction and sobriety, which I think is incredibly, incredibly brave,” she said. “I just wanna say how much I love what he did for us, especially what he did for me… and hopefully now he can rest in peace.”

Perry was found dead of an apparent drowning at his home in L.A., according to the Los Angeles Times and TMZ, which was the first to report the news. Both outlets cited unnamed sources confirming Perry’s death, the Associated Press reports.
