Adele Hints At A New Album On Twitter

What Would It Mean To Have Adele (Or Any Other Plus-Size Woman) As The Face Of L’Oreal?

Adele L'Oreal

Adele has reportedly backed away from a $20 million contract with L’Oreal that she has been negotiating since March. According to the UK’s Daily Mail, sources had said the singer needed “a lot of persuasion to get her to agree” but “it looks like she’s close to landing a deal.”

Only … not. The company is apparently extremely surprised Adele backed out.  Anyone who has read interviews in which she has warned about being a “sell out” and becoming “tainted” is perhaps not so surprised.

But what would it have meant for Adele, one of the most famous and beloved plus-size women, to have fronted a major beauty brand? Keep reading »

“Total Eclipse Of The Heart” By One Woman With 19 Voices

Christina Bianco Diva Impressions
Cher! Judy Garland! Edith Piaf! Bette Midler! Alanis!

How would it sound if Celine Dion sang “Total Eclipse of the Heart”? What if she sang it and then passed the song off to Adele, who then passed it off to Barbra Streisand, Christina Aguilera and Shakira? Singer Christina Bianco has a show called “Diva Impressions,” and during a recent performance she sang the classic Bonnie Tyler hit as 19 different famous singers. Her Zooey Deschanel is so spot on. The whole thing is pitch perfect. [YouTube]

Grammy-winning singer Adele has understandably chosen to keep her baby boy pretty well concealed. This is actually one of the first times we’ve gotten a glimpse of the eight-month-old. Though she hasn’t yet confirmed the little goober’s name,  several sources have said that Adele and her boyfriend Simon Konecki named him Angelo. Adele was even spotted wearing a necklace bearing the name. Whatever they call him, it’s clear Adele and Simon have one adorable baby boy on their hands! [Huffington Post] [Photo: Splash News]

Adele is pretty loyal to her signature glamorous, ’60s-inspired beauty look — the chanteuse is rarely spotted without voluminous hair, flawless skin, a serious cat eye, and a bright red or nude lip. A more pared-down “natural” look is not one we’re accustomed to seeing on her… But now that we’ve seen it, we can’t imagine why she doesn’t wear it more often! The milkmaid-style braids are a massive departure from her trademark beehive, but she wears them well. Perhaps being a new mom has Adele interested in a more low-maintenance look, or maybe it has something to do with the fact that she’s in New York right now, where the current temperature is one million degrees. Regardless, so pretty! (I would also add that this is total summer hair inspiration, but those braids are complicated, goddamnit!)

  • Adele has apparently turned down a seven-figure memoir deal. I have an idea Adele. You’re obviously a busy lady and are hesitant to take on another project. I understand! How about ghostwrite your memoir and we split the seven figures? No? How about 70/30 and I will throw in some free babysitting too? Have your people call my people (Lucca) and let’s talk. [The Gloss]

Vote For Your Favorite Rad & Inspiring Woman!

It should come as no surprise that for all the obsessing we do about Ryan Gosling, baby pandas, Grumpy Cat, Karl Lagerfeld, Chavril and the endless array of Be My Boyfriend candidates, The Frisky is most inspired by the work of the many rad women we look up to. There are so many pop culture heavyweights and high-powered newsmakers who show us how its done and inspire us with their achievements every day. Naturally, of course, we each have our favorites. With that in mind, each Frisky staff member was tasked with choosing and submitting their favorite rad and inspiring woman — okay, a few of us got to pick two — for nomination, along with a photo of herself and a blurb about why they chose the woman they did.

And now we want you to vote for your favorite of the 10 women we’ve chosen.

The poll will remain open for two weeks — until April 22 — and, at that time, the woman with the most votes will become, effectively, our Rad & Inspiring Woman of the Year.

So what do you say? Will you tell us who you love, too? Vote now! Keep reading »

  • This must have been edited out of the broadcast! Ukrainian TV personality Vitalii Seduik — the same guy who kissed Will Smith on a red carpet — rushed the stage when Adele won her Grammy award for Best Solo Pop performance, trying to steal her thunder, before he got the sideeye from presenter J.Lo, who shooed him off with the back of her hand. The Hollywood Reporter claims Seduick didn’t have a ticket to the event, but nevertheless was allowed into the Staples Center, where he sat behind Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel.

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: The 2013 Grammy Awards

The 2013 Grammys were a weird affair, no? “Hosted” by LL Cool J, who was barely seen, and featuring way more musical performances than actual awards, the Grammys are a bizarre fete. Nobody really thinks they’re that on the ball or relevant, but still, we watch. This year, theere was fashion drama, as the Grammys sent out a dress code beforehand to make sure that nobody showed too much boob or butt during the broadcast.  I can safely say there was no major nipple action, but after three and a half hours, I was glad it was over, if only so I could stop making that throw up noise every time fun. was on the screen.

Let’s look at some clothes, okay?

“I feel a little bit kind of overexcited. It’s my first night out since I had my child and my inspiration normally comes from heartbreak, but I don’t think I’m ever going to be devastated again anymore, so we’re good.”

–Adele, speaking to reporters after her Golden Globes win for Best Original Song, describes how her new life as a mom might change the subject matter of her songs. Adele declined to reveal the name of her infant son (“It is very personal to me”), but did mention that she now has eczema from boiling bottles, which sounds like the only negative in a very happy life. (And maybe the basis for an emotional ballad? I’m reaching, I know, but I’m so desperate for more tragic Adele ballads that I would gladly listen to her sing about an itchy, flaky skin condition).
