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.
Over the weekend, Adele had to put one of her fans in line at a concert when her tour stopped in Verona, Italy. Apparently, the Adele-fan was filming Adele and Adele stopped the show and tells the fan:
“Yeah, I want to tell that lady as well, can you stop filming me with a video camera because I’m really here in real life. You can enjoy it in real life, rather than through your camera. Can you take your tripod down? This isn’t a DVD, this is a real show. I’d really like you to enjoy my show because there’s lots of people outside that couldn’t come in.”
I was thinking an iphone or something, but they had a MF TRIPOD! Yeah, I get it. That being said, maybe they were recording it to show friends and family, you know the ones who COULDN’T nake it in.
