Shake it off, Adele!
Last week, we reported that music producer Tony Visconti (who worked on many of David Bowie’s most iconic albums) chose to throw shade at pop music in general and name-checked Adele for having a “manipulated voice.” Here’s exactly what he said:
“You turn the radio on and it’s fluff, you are listening to 90% computerised voices. We know Adele has a great voice but it’s even questionable if that is actually her voice or how much has been manipulated. We don’t know. There’s a sound to pop now that is so perfect it’s boring, because everything is fixed.”
And listen, this is just this guy (who arguably knows a LOT about music) who is trying to get viewers for his new reality show. And I don’t blame him for that. But coming after Adele is a big deal- because she has an INSANE voice she’s proven live many, many times.
So Adele responded to Tony Visconti this weekend and it’s BRILLS. According to Consequence of Sound, Adele told an audience: “Some dickhead tried to say that my voice was not me on record… Dude, suck my d-ck.” Here the video (it’s a bit NSFW-ish for her language, except you can’t really hear what she’s saying because the fans are so annoying). But she’s right. and she’s still the QUEEN.
