English songbird Adele may be one of the world’s most celebrated artists, but the 22-year-old Grammy-winning star still resides in north London with her Mom. And like most women, she has an unhealthy love for designer purses and she’s not afraid to go a bit gaga when crossing paths with some of Hollywood’s finest.
In a recent interview with The Sun, the “Chasing Pavements” singer says she’s not as serious as some of her chart-topping singles might suggest. “With my records I am serious and sad but I get it out of me on my records. I’ve been told some of my songs make grown men cry. Then people meet me and it’s all giggling and laughing. I suppose it’s healthy.”
It’s a good thing Adele has a sense of humor. Back in 2008, when she was a musical guest on Saturday Night Live, Adele accidentally thought Republican politician Sarah Palin was comedian Tina Fey. Yikes! Don’t ya just miss Fey’s spot-on parodies of the former Alaska governor?
“I knew that Tina Fey was going to be on the show and when I saw Sarah Palin I thought it was Tina,” Adele explains. “I was going ‘Tina, Tina!’ then quoting lines from the movie Mean Girls, because she wrote it. The security guard had to barge me out the way thinking I was some f****** freak.”
A chance meeting with Sean Combs a.k.a. Diddy (P. Diddy back in the day) didn’t go so well either. The pair happened to be on the same lot where Adele was shooting a video. During a long break, Adele says she kept herself entertained by driving around in a golf cart. But before she knew it, she was fumbling to bring her toy wheels to a screeching halt.
“I was in the buggy with a mate and I saw him,” she says. “I meant to put the brake on and go, ‘Oh, you’re P Diddy!’ But I hit the accelerator. He had to dive out the way. As we went past I was like, ‘You’re P. Diddy.’ He just said, ‘Yeah, I know.’ I almost, almost killed him.”
Oh Adele, what a dear! Her hotly-anticipated sophomore effort, 21, arrives February 22 in the U.S. The ballsy blues-tinged “Rolling In the Deep” marks its first single:Read More
