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. My life fell apart. My phone got cut off, my credit card got cut off, the house was a mess. It was awful. I couldn’t function without my mum so I moved back in with her … I’d rather be defeated than one day come in and the rats would be eating me.”

Adele reveals her deepest fears in OK! magazine. I’m not sure what to say about her candid confessions. They are very dark. It sounds like she’s in a lot of pain and may need some professional support to manage her anxiety and depression. Let’s hope that this is not a prophecy and that she’s not headed for a membership to the Forever 27 Club because, dang, the girl has talent. [ONTD] Keep reading »

Adele Fans Rule At Online Dating

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. Also successful: male fans that like Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon and the Arctic Monkeys. The least popular male daters? No surprise here: Metallica, Linkin Park and Eminem fans.

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 relatable and down-to-earth? It turns out the hottest singer in the world right now hates paying taxes as much as the rest of us. (Don’t worry, she has an accountant!) It also sounds like Adele is super-generous with all the money she’s earned: she bought two homes in London for herself and her mom and set up trust funds for several cousins who are “young mums.” I love this woman.

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 the best… He was my soul mate. We had everything—on every level we were totally right. We’d finish each other’s sentences, and he could just pick up how I was feeling by the look in my eye, down to a T, and we loved the same things, and hated the same things, and we were brave when the other was brave and weak when the other one was weak—almost like twins, you know—and I think that’s rare when you find the full circle in one person, and I think that’s what I’ll always be looking for in other men.”

Adele tells Out Magazine that she would gladly give up her career and, well, pretty much anything if it meant things would work out with the guy she sang about on her heartbreaking and genius album, 21. Oh, Adele. I’m so sorry to hear that you feel that way. I just want to assure you that you will find what you had with your ex with someone else. Someone who will be so, so proud of the glorious singer that you are and who will possess so many other wonderful qualities you couldn’t even think to look for now. In the meantime, we love you!

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 package. Sing it girl! [via YouTube] Keep reading »

“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, making us wish she’d forget about Finn already.

But this isn’t the first time “Glee” has saluted Adele this season. Keep reading »

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 an adult, and put me on the road that I’m traveling.”

Adele shares that her ex-boyfriend, who inspired the songs on her first album, 19, thought he was entitled to royalties for fueling all her songs of heartbreak and devastation. Wow, what nerve that guy had. Luckily none of our exes have asked for a cut of the profits from all the ink we’ve spilled about them on The Frisky. Maybe I shouldn’t give them any ideas.

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 to explain why he’s against gay marriage and it is absurd. [BuzzFeed]
  • Rev. Al Sharpton is the last person who suggests “romance” to me, but Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon do not agree. Sharpton renewed the couple’s wedding vows on Sunday — the couple’s third anniversary and the day after Mariah gave birth to twins. [People]

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 ass out for no one. I love seeing Lady Gaga’s boobs and bum. I love seeing Katy Perry’s boobs and bum. Love it. But that’s not what my music is about. I don’t make music for eyes. I make music for ears.”

— Soul powerhouse Adele doesn’t lead with her appearance because she doesn’t have to. Only she conveyed that thought in a much classier way than I just did. [Rolling Stone] Keep reading »

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 the bands/artists they proclaimed to be a fan of. The verdict? That Nirvana, Metallica, Gorillaz, and Linkin Park fanatics are the most likely to put out on a first date. Meanwhile, those who love Lady Gaga, Adele, and Coldplay take longer to warm up. Ahhh, I can already hear the sound of horny online dating dudes everywhere scrolling down to ladies’ music sections to see what their chances are. [EW] Keep reading »
