The Grammy-winning artist's residency at Ceasar's Palace, 'Weekends With Adele', has been a raging success and she's decided to extend her time there even though she has had some hiccups during her performance.

During one of her most recent performances, the singer, who is known for being quite open and honest during her shows, shared some very intimate details about her health with the crowd.

In a video shared on Twitter, Adele spoke about how she always wears Spanx, or shapewear, during her show and tends to get quite sweaty.

The combination of these two, along with the hot lights, has apparently led to her being diagnosed with an infection she's never even heard about.

According to Mayo Clinic, jock itch is "a fungal skin infection that causes an itchy rash in warm, moist areas of the body. The rash often affects the groin and inner thighs and may be shaped like a ring. The condition is also called tinea cruris."
