There is no other was to describe Adele other than being a total powerhouse. The English singer burst onto the music scene with her album ‘21’, where her rich vocals and voice of an angel caused people to hail her the best singer of our generation. However, although she is one of the most successful singers in the world right now, with hits like ‘Hello’ and ‘Someone Like You’ under her belt, she is also very good at keeping out the public eye. So, we have presented you with 5 fascinating facts you definitely don’t know about the beautiful and bold Adele.
1. Adele’s ‘Chasing Pavements’ was inspired by her rough birthplace – Tottenham
It is clear when listening to Adele’s songs that there is a deeper, soul meaning to the lyrics she sings. And finding out the stories that inspired her hit songs is a testimony to that! When Adele explained how she thought of ‘Chasing Pavements’ she said:
“Chasing Pavements’ came from me running down Oxford Street. I had punched my ex in a pub and then ran away from security,” she told Vogue in 2012. “And then I just kept running even though they weren’t chasing me anymore. I was running from something. And I didn’t know what. I was just chasing a pavement. And I was like, Ka-ching! I will get my record-deal money now!”
2. She is Beyoncé’s number one fan
It is so beautiful to see that rather than compete, two of the biggest stars in the world have nothing but love and admiration for one another. Adele has, on many occasions, expressed her fangirling over Bey. Whether it is posting an Instagram of her hugging a giant Beyoncé poster, mentioning her awe for Beyoncé while accepting her Grammy award, or her clap back to the rumor that she refused a Collab with Queen B
“Whoever started that rumor must have been having a laugh, because anyone who knows me knows that my main priority in life outside of my child is Beyoncé.”
As you can see…she is more than just a fan.
3. She has refused multiple endorsements
These days it is becoming increasingly popular for celebs to align themselves with popular brands and benefit heavily from their support. However, although Adele has been approached multiple times to be the face of popular franchises, she refuses. The singer claims she doesn’t want to be associated with anything besides her talent. Can this woman be any purer?
4. She has multiple Guinness World Records
Understanding the talent which Adele embodies, this comes as no surprise. Adele has broken the record for fastest video to reach a billion views on YouTube, (‘Hello’ reached one billion in 88 days), as well as being the first woman to have two singles and two albums in the U.K Top 5 at the same time. In other words- she slays.
5. Her management keeps her from drunk tweeting
Yup, you read right. Like all of us, Adele is human and can do silly human things on occasion- one of them being drunk tweeting and nearly putting her foot in it one too many times. But she thought of a solution to this problem since when you have millions of followers, drunk tweeting seems like something to avoid. She commented on her full-proof method explaining:
“my management decided you have to go through two people and then it has to be signed off by someone, but they are all my tweets, no one writes my tweets, they just post them for me.”
Kind of disappointing since I’m sure all of us would love to know what a drunk Adele goes on about.
