5 FACTS ABOUT ADELE
- The singer stumbled on her influences Etta James and Dusty Springfield when she was looking for
a new hairstyle in the Classics section of HMV.
- Adele's first taste of the limelight was when she performed Gabrielle's song 'Rise' at her school.
Reportedly her mum made her a sparkly eye patch to look more like the singer.
- She had throat microsurgery in 2011, and was advised to give up smoking. But she is quoted as saying:
"Smoking is my favourite thing to do in the world."
- Adele has claimed that she is at her most creative when drunk. "A drunk tongue is an honest one in my
opinion and the next morning I would read it through with an awful hangover and, in the cold light of day, had to absorb
my feelings about myself. I was a bit scared that I wouldn't be articulate enough."
She has a miniature dachshund called Louis Armstrong.
Adele performs "Someone Like You"
live at the BRIT Awards 2011.
This pop ballad was inspired by a broken relationship, and lyrically it speaks of Adele coming to terms with it.
Accompanied only by a piano in the song, Adele sings about the end of the relationship with her ex-boyfriend.
The song received positive reviews from music critics who chose the song as a highlight of the album and praised
the lyrics, its simple sound and Adele's vocal performance.
