It’s been almost a year since Adele made us weep tears of joy and sorrow into our holiday meals. Her last album, the critically acclaimed 30, reminded us that there’s one thing Adele does far better than any of her contemporaries: cry. Apparently, she can sing too, and earlier this year, Adele’s fans were ready to flock to her Las Vegas residency Weekends With Adele at Caesar’s Palace Colosseum, but unfortunately for them, it was canceled at the very last minute, causing her fans to weep loudly. Adele usually brings the weepies with her songs, but this time, her fans were crying over all the travel costs they lost from the last-minute cancelation. At first, COVID was to blame, and then there was a rumor that relationship woes with her boyfriend Rich Paul helped push her residency into the gutter. But the main reason given was that the production values were shit and not up to Adele’s standards. Well, her show finally opened, and she sang Set Fire To The Rain in front of “flaming rain,” and it wasn’t from a stagehand holding a candle while another sprayed a garden hose at the stage. So the production values have been upped!
The 2023 Grammy Award nominations came out today, and Beyoncé leads the pack with 9 nominations for her album, Renaissance. Kendrick Lamar follows closely behind with eight noms, and Adele and Brandi Carlile each snagged seven. With these latest nods, Beyoncé ties her husband Jay-Z as the most Grammy-nominated artist of all time: 88 nods in total. Fart out one more song in the next year, Bey, and your long con revenge plot against Jay’s cheating ass will finally be complete!
Adele Says That Once Her Las Vegas Residency Is Over, She Plans To Take A Break From Music To Study English Literature
Some of us poors with endless student loan debt fantasize about having never attended college and instead striking it rich back in our youth because our mom helped release our sister’s sex tape (allegedly); but if you’re a millionaire like Kim Kardashian or Adele, apparently the dream is to further your studies just for funsies, because we all know Kim’s not going to step foot in court (as a lawyer, anyway). And now Adele just revealed that although she doesn’t plan to use the degree for anything, she’s going to stop making music for a bit to study English Literature after her residency ends.
Adele Finally Released The Video For “I Drink Wine” And Said Taylor Swift’s One Of The Greatest Songwriters Of Our Generation
A year ago, all anyone could talk about was Adele’s much anticipated fourth album, 30. “When’s 30 coming out?! It’s been six years since 25! I’m gonna go fucking apeshit if Adele doesn’t give us 30!!!” Adele finally released the album’s first single, “Easy On Me,” and its music video in mid-October 2021. The next month, the full album came out. Soon, the album’s second single, “I Drink Wine” was announced. During an appearance on YouTube’s NikkieTutorials, Adele shared that the song’s music video had been shot and “it’s the campiest thing you’ll ever see.” She even boasted that it would inspire peoples’ 2022 Halloween costumes. But then… nothing. The song “Oh My God” quietly replaced “I Drink Wine” as 30’s second single, and its video was released in January. After that, all the Adele headlines focused on her Las Vegas residency disaster. Cut to today: the official “I Drink Wine” music video arrived! I guess right in time for Halloween? Great, just a few days to find a white bathing suit, a black and gold sequin swim cap, and a glass of vino (OK, that last one’s easy).
Seen above in the same kind of duck lips-throwing “shot from above” selfie that my aunties always post on Facebook, Adele added yet another trophy to her piles of trophies when she won an Emmy this past weekend for her TV special Adele: One Night Only. Winning an Emmy put Adele just one letter closer to EGOT and she only needs to win a Tony now. Adele also got a little company in The We Just Need A Tony To EGOT Club this weekend, because Eminem, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr also won Emmys and are also just a T away from EGOT. So prepare yourselves for an Adele, Eminem, Sir Paul, and Sir Ringo collab called 21 Mile At Abbey Road: THE BROADWAY MUSICAL!
And while celebrating reaching EGO status on Instagram, Adele’s fans noticed a customized game on her coffee table that they believe could be a clue that she married her boyfriend of more than a year, sports agent Rich Paul.
Adele covers the September issue of ELLE, and, in the interview, she says that canceling her Las Vegas residency back in January was “the worst moment in my career, by far.” Oh shit, I thought Bantu Knots 2020 would be #1, but there ya go! 35-year-old Adele says that canceling the residency last minute was a tough decision, but she thought her stage set-up lacked intimacy and had “no soul.” She adds that, even though she was embarrassed, she’s proud of herself for standing up for her “artistic needs.” Adele also dishes about her relationship with Rich Paul; she says that they’re actually not engaged, but she’s totally obsessed with the 40-year-old sportsball agent and wants to get married again and have more kids. Adele explains that she wore the giant diamond ring on *that finger* to the BRIT Awards because she loves “high-end jewelry.” Oh dearie me, the girl’s gone cock-mad.
