Our beloved Seth Rogen made an unexpected appearance during Adele’s televised concert at Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. In an interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, Rogen added that he wasn’t entirely sure why he was invited, let alone had one of the closest seats to the stage.
If he knew about how close he was to the stage, he wouldn’t have “smoked a ton of weed” before the televised Oprah Winfrey-touted event. In fact, Rogen “had no idea” that he was attending such a massive televised event. He was under the impression that it was a small and private Adele concert, which is why he and his wife, Lauren Miller, decided to get stoned before the event.
Upon arrival, they were surprised to see the camera cranes, drones, and an entire crew meant to promote Adele’s latest album, “30.” The Pineapple Express star and his wife made quite a few on-camera appearances that night, alongside other A-listers like Drake, Leonardo DiCaprio, Gabrielle Union, and Dwyane Wade.
Rogen was rather stressed about his seating assignment. He told Fallon that he and his wife “were like, ‘OK, maybe we can kind of, like, slink into the background?'” However, when the couple received their tickets, their numbers were 1A and 1B. “And I’m like, ‘Oh, no! That sounds close!'” Rogen said to Fallon.
What’s even funnier is that Rogen doesn’t even know Adele personally, as that was the closest he and his wife have ever been to the Grammy and Oscar award-winning singer-songwriter. He playfully added, “And Adele, if you’re watching this, why did you do that?”

Apparently, the entire time Rogen and Miller were watching the concert, he thought about the number of other famous people that should be sitting in their front row seats. A high Rogen thought others would be insulted by his seating, adding that he was sitting in front of rapper Drake. “There is no world where I should be in front of Drake,” he told Fallon.
Among these lingering thoughts of paranoia, he was “very distracted” by the fact that he was on camera while trying to act like an undistracted “normal cool guy trying to enjoy an Adele concert.” We can attest to the difficulty of trying to act cool when high, and Rogen said it was way too hard for him to look cool because of how uncomfortable he felt being so close to the stage.
He concluded by sharing other hilarious thoughts like feeling as though Leonardo DiCaprio behind him was thinking, “Did Seth Rogen write ‘Rolling in the Deep?’ Is that why he’s so close?”
