My favorite sketch from this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” was definitely the one in which, one by one, a team of coworkers admits that when they need a good cry, they put on Adele’s “Someone Like You.” It’s true — I don’t think I can think of another song that makes my eyes moisten so quickly. I even lip-sync emphatically; it’s soothing. I especially like the quick shout out to “Friday Night Lights” — I still need the occasional cry when I think about Coach and Tami Taylor no longer being on TV. Sniff … sniff … Time to open iTunes and put on some Adele.

Behold, Adele’s “Someone Like You” Video

Adele‘s “Someone Like You” is the most gut-wrenching song ever. As in, I had to stop listening to it because it just brought me to a dark place. And now, following her bonkers performance of the song at the MTV VMAs, Adele has released the video for the song. It shows her walking along the river in Paris, by herself, in black and white. And then maybe meeting the guy she’s singing to at a cafe and watching him walk away? Adele, of course, looks stunning. And the overall effect is simple and very heart-tugging. Keep reading »

Bobbi Kristina Inherits The Family Pipes

The progeny of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina, is no longer the chubby little brat we remember from “Being Bobby Brown.” This past week, a 17-year-old Bobbi posted this video of her covering Adele‘s “Someone Like You” on her Twitter page. If my ears are hearing her correctly, she appears to be carrying on her parents’ (well, at least her mother’s) musical legacy. Let’s hope she didn’t also inherit mommy’s penchant for crack. Hmm. I seem to recall some photos of her snorting white lines that she claimed weren’t what they looked like. Sigh. Bobbi, crack is whack. It would be sad to waste another perfectly good set of pipes. But hey, it’s her prerogative. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
