Adele is so lovely!!!!
This is a hilarious chat that Adele did with Alan Carr a while ago in the UK. I live in Canada, so I didn’t see it until recently. If you also haven’t seen it yet, seriously give it a watch, these two had me cracking up. Especially the part about what Adele’s album “87” will look like in the future. SO many LOLs! She has such a warm personality and wonderful sense of humor. I’m so happy that her magnificent album “21” has brought such success for her.
Yesterday there was a great interview piece published in The Guardian. You can read that here. She’s so random and chatty! I bet she would make SUCH a good friend. The whole article was great, but this was one of my favorite excerpts:
"I love a card. You know, cards? At birthdays? I collect them. There’s this place in London, in Soho, does the best cards. Upstairs. My friend took me, she knows I love a card. Downstairs. A sex dungeon. Oh mah gawd, the toys. All my best mates are gay, they love it. I’ve seen things – nuffink like this. My eyes were watering." My original question, way back, had been about the difficulties of getting up early to sing on breakfast TV.
At live shows, Adele’s on-stage banter has become justifiably famous, and most of it is like this, generous and filthy, broken up by bawdy laughter and what-am-I-likes. It has helped distinguish her since she first emerged in 2007, when a combination of a hot performance on late-night TV and then a prize at the 2008 Brit Awards marked her out as important new singing stock. Fours years on and she can still catch you by surprise: that wartime-landlady chitchat, then suddenly the dreadnought vocal.
"I get so nervous on stage I can’t help but talk. I try. I try telling my brain: stop sending words to the mouth. But I get nervous and turn into my grandma. Behind the eyes it’s pure fear. I find it difficult to believe I’m going to be able to deliver."
