Alex Sturrock, a 31-year-old celebrity photographer, has been revealed by a UK magazine as the ex-boyfriend who allegedly inspired Adele’s latest album, 21. In fact, Alex Sturrock’s website features a whole gallery of photos of a young Adele, posing with props like a bulldog or a rose. A source told Heat:
“It was an intense period for them. They met through mutual friends and hit it off straight away. He shot her a few times and that was just it They spent all their time together – and when they weren’t together they would ring each other constantly.”
Previously everyone thought a chap named Slinky Sunbeam had inspired such hearbroken songs like “Someone Like You.” Put perhaps Adele was just trying to throw us off the scent? (Well, good, anyway, because that name is ridic.) Let’s find out some more about this Alex Sturrock character, shall we? Keep reading »
So it turns out that Sade — yes, Sade — was the highest-earning British music act in the United States last year, beating out even Adele. We figured you could use a pic of her whipping her hair in the wind. Why not?
So much happens in a week! It’s hard to keep it all straight. That’s why we’re keeping track for you, with our new helpful charticle, Totally Awesome, Totally Crap, which highlights the best and worst of the past seven days. This week: We’re loving Adele giving the middle finger at the Brit Awards. You do not cut off Adele. We’re also super stoked that “Community” — the best, most underrated show on TV — will officially be returning on March 15. Also getting the thumbs up: Zac Efron “accidentally” dropping a condom at the premiere of his new movie, “The Lorax.” Hooray for using protection! I am secretly hoping it’s because he’s boning the Lorax.
Totally sucky this week? Rihanna recording a song with ex-lover/beater/total shitbird Chris Brown. We’re also kind of disgusted that Bobby Brown is writing a tell-all. Too soon! Plus, what don’t we know about you after we watched you pull poop out of Whitney’s ass on your reality show? Beyond that — is there no such thing as deep, unabiding, trustful love anymore? Jessica Biel doesn’t think so, which is why she’s reportedly making Justin Timberlake sign a pre-nup that grants her at least $500,000 every time he cheats. True love is dead.
Oh no they didn’t. At last night’s Brit Awards in London, Adele was midway through her “Album of the Year” acceptance speech when the hosts cut her off mid-sentence to announce the beginning of Blur’s super long performance. Adele, usually so sweet as pie, had a middle finger message for the suits upstairs. She’s even adorbs when she’s pissed off! Check out video after the jump and above, other starlets flippin’ the bird. Keep reading »
They could have had it all! But instead of rolling in the deep, Adele’s ex-boyfriend (this goofball) is releasing an album of his own called Dan 21 featuring sure-to-be-chart-topping hits like “Someone Like Me” and “You’re Welcome.” Sigh. It has just occurred to me that I could have monetized my breakup with Ex-Mr. Jessica much, much better. [Mirth Mag]
The odds are that you don’t recognize this young man at all. Don’t feel bad about it, because there’s no reason that you should really know what he looks like. But trust me, you probably hate him. You’ve probably, at some point, called him a dick, an a**hole, or whatever your favorite insult might be (do share!). Personally, I’ve contemplated watching The Craft over and over just so I can figure out how to put a really good spell on him, because seriously, what a jackass. To do what he did to one of the most lovely ladies …
Do you have any guesses?
He’s that guy! That’s the guy that Adele wrote that phenomenal album, 21, about! He’s the inspiration for such touching masterpieces as “Rolling in the Deep,” “Someone Like You,” and “Don’t You Remember.” What a jerk, right? His name is Slinky Sunbeam. For real. Read more…
