This doesn’t sound like the Adele we know and love…
Apparently, Adele was staying at a luxury country estate in the Cotswolds (it’s a very English-y part of the English countryside) when she decided she wanted pizza. But we ain’t talking about Domino’s here, NO. According to The Sun, the Hello singer decided she wanted a take-out pizza order from a place near her Kensington home in West London, which was a short 140-mile trip from where she was staying.
Adele ordered an employee of the resort to drive into London and fetch her the pie, and bring it back. According to a source, she would not budge on wanting THAT pizza, and she didn’t even eat it when it DID arrive!
The source said:
“She was told they had the best ovens. But she insisted that staff fetch the pizza from her local company. A member of staff drove all the way to London and came back with it. Unfortunately for Adele by that time it was 3am — and she was asleep.”
The source added that the Soho Farmhouse (where Adele had been staying) gets requests like this alllll the time:
“Soho Farmhouse staff members are trained to say yes to anything. Adele made the most of that. She obviously likes to have her home comforts, even when they are almost 100 miles away.”
Beautiful music isn’t the only thing that comes out of Adele‘s mouth!
The “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” singer invited a fan on stage during her performance at Glastonbury Festival on Saturday and she accidentally burped in the poor girl’s face! EW. Here’s the story:
A superfan named Maria reached out her arm to take a selfie with Adele, while the singer volunteered to take the selfie. After snapping the photo, Adele shouted, “Oh my God, I just burped!” and launched into her famous cackle before giving Maria a hug. “I’ll see you later, Maria,” she said, still laughing.
As the Brazil-native fan left the stage, Adele explained herself, telling the audience, “I had a dirty burger before I came on, that’s why.”
EWWW! Sorry, Maria. Or maybe you’re a dirty girl who loves a dirty burger burp? Check out the whole video below!
“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.
Tony Visconti, an American music producer responsible for some of David Bowie’s biggest hits, is going after Adele. Why? Because he wants RATINGS. You see, Visconti is joining a new reality show, Guitar Star, to find the next great rock star. So, in the classiest move possible, he’s decided to go after some current hugely successful artists to show himself off as a new kind of Simon Cowell, a…super Cowell? He says so himself, kinda. Read on:
Tony Visconti, the man behind Bowie’s greatest works, is disillusioned with today’s stars, so he’s joined TV talent show Guitar Star. And the Brooklyn muso, 72, says it will find more authentic musicians than Adele.
Visconti told me: “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.”
Guitar Star aims to unearth old fashioned, raw ability. He said: “I’m looking for virtuosos like Hendrix, Cobain and Bowie. There’s no fluffy back story, there’s no: ‘I lost my pet dog in 97 and that made me want to play’ nonsense. No-one can mistake me for Simon Cowell. Today is the worst time ever in the music industry, but Guitar Star is a step in the right direction.”
Yeah, yeah, you’re DEFINITELY going to improve music by being on a reality show, dude. That’s definitely the answer. God, his statement seems so flimsy and moneyed. So gross. As for shading Adele? Listen to her sing live. That’s her voice, bro.
