Video: Ellen Thinks Adele-Induced Tears Can Solve California Drought

California's historic four-year drought is a major problem. (Think of the avocadoes! And the much realer consequences...) Adele's new album, 25, due tomorrow, is the opposite of a major problem. While the healing power of music is well-documented, Ellen DeGeneres has an idea to take it one step further.

All those tears Adele will make you shed in the coming days, weeks, months? Use 'em to moisturize California! Ellen suggests using those 25-flavored tears to add to your local bodies of water and to accomplish liquid-oriented household chores like washing the dishes.

Adele recently confirmed to the New York Times that she totally gets it:

“In order for me to feel confident with one of my songs it has to really move me. That’s how I know that I’ve written a good song for myself—it’s when I start crying. It’s when I just break out in [expletive] tears in the vocal booth or in the studio, and I’ll need a moment to myself.”

But there are happy Adele songs, we swear!

To get through this last day till 25, see Adele sing two new songs at Radio City Music Hall, watch a studio performance of "When We Were Young," revisit the "Hello" video, try our ultimate Adele quiz and try these 20 artists you'll also love.
