The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The MTV Video Music Awards

The MTV Video Music Awards are kind of hilarious, considering the complete lack of videos played on MTV these days. But at least we can count on one thing from them: insane fashion. Everyone has carte blanche to come dressed up as a pile of trash, or a geisha robot or whatever–and this year, that’…

This Air Force Soldier Has “The Voice”

File this story under “the Internet is awesome.” Just a few days ago, an anonymous soldier posted this video of a military band covering Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” starring a camo-clad singer with a serious set of pipes. Carson Daly saw the video and was able to track down the mystery woman o…

Adele And Kanye Remix “Melt My Heart To Stone”

Adele’s “Melt My Heart To Stone” is one of those breakup songs that just tugs at your heartstrings. But the new Kanye West remix really takes the edge off. It’s not as good as his Katy Perry remix of “E.T.,” probably because there’s no lyrics like “Imma disrobe ya, then Imma probe ya.”…

Adele Predicts An Early Death

“Oh my God, I’m crippled by fear. I have awful stage fright. I don’t know what possesses me to do it. I think I’m going to die young from having so much stress all the time … After my first record I moved out of my mum’s and moved to Notting Hill on my own.

Adele fan? That’s good news for your online dating game. The most successful online daters happen to be fans of Adele, at least according to a new online dating site called Tastebuds.fm, which matches potential dates with similar music tastes.

Adele Hates Paying Taxes As Much As Us Normal Folks

“Trains are always late, most state schools are s**t and I’ve gotta give you like four million quid. Are you having a laugh? When I got my tax bill in from [her first album] 19, I was ready to go and buy a gun and randomly open fire.”
— Could Adele be any more…

Adele Says She Would Give Up Her Career To Have Her Ex Back. Noooo!!!

“I don’t think I’ll ever forgive myself for not making my relationship with my ex on 21 work, because he’s the love of my life. I would still be singing in the shower, of course, but yeah—[I would have given up] my career, my friendships, my hobbies. I would have given up trying to be…

PS22 Chorus Takes On Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep”

Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” is one of the best songs of the year so far, so it’s no surprise that the incredibly talented PS22 Chorus has tackled it. What is a surprise is that the girl soloing may have given me more chills than Adele herself. So much talent in such a small…

“Glee” Gives Some Love To Adele

Let’s hope Adele’s ex-boyfriend doesn’t catch wind of this and demand royalties. Last night, “Glee” did a little tribute to Adele. During the episode “Prom Queen,” Rachel Berry came face to face with her ex, Jesse St. James (played by Jonathan Groff), while belting out “Rolling in the Deep.” He naturally joins in,…

Adele’s Ex-Boyfriend Wants Royalties For Inspiring Her Debut Album

“For about a week he was calling and was deadly serious about it. Finally, I said, ‘Well, you made my life hell, so I lived it and now I deserve it.’ He really thought he’d had some input into the creative process by being a prick. I’ll give him the credit — he made me…

Quickies: Miley Cyrus Covers “Smells Like Teen Spirit” & Adele Snubbed The Royal Wedding

OH HELL NO. Miley Cyrus covered Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” at a concert in Ecuador and possibly had a seizure onstage before she started singing. Oh, that’s her dancing? Kurt Cobain is rolling over in his grave. No wonder Courtney Love does so many drugs. [BuzzFeed]
Donald Trump uses golf as an analogy…

Adele’s Music Is Her Strong Suit, Not Her “Boobs Or Bum”

“My life is full of drama and I won’t have time to worry about something as petty as what I look like. I don’t like going to the gym. I like eating fine foods and drinking nice wine. Even if I had a really good figure, I don’t think I’d get my tits and a…

Nirvana Fans Put Out On A First Date; Lady Gaga Enthusiasts Don’t

It’s not easy to tell if someone is willing to go home with you on first date. But the online dating site Tastebuds has an offbeat idea for judging this—pay attention to what they list as their favorite music. The site surveyed users about their first date desires and then sorted through the info by…

Adele Meets Britney In “Rolling Till The World Ends”

Ever wonder what would happen if Britney Spears took Adele to Da Club for a dance off? I have a theory. Britney would start dancing, natch, and Adele, in her proper English accent, would be, like, “Bitch, I ain’t no dancer, I’m a singer. I’m turning this into a sing off!” And then while…

Adele Turns 21, Gives You A Gift

I am a sucker for British broads with big voices and a retro vibe. Of this genre, Adele is by far and away my favorite. You’d think that an album titled 21—as in, her age when she recorded it last year—would be hopelessly naive but instead it is totally gorgeous and dripping with mature emotion.

These Singers Are Not “Divas”

VH1 is bringing back its “VH1 Divas” concert series Sept. 17 after a four-year hiatus. But don’t get too excited yet. Some idiot over at the network thinks Miley Cyrus, Leona Lewis, Kelly Clarkson, and Adele should join the ranks of Mary J. Blige, Cher, Aretha Franklin, and Celine Dion, who have all been honored…

Are Plus-Sized Woman Finally Acceptable Fashion Icons?

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is not known for loving larger women. In fact, she even got Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy to see a trainer and go on a diet for a story in the magazine’s April 2008 issue. But it seems as though Wintour is changing her tune. The British, Grammy-nominated singer Adele
