Adele Celebrates Her First British Mother’s Day

adele-300Though still keeping hush over the details of her son’s birth and name, Adele is gushing over being a mommy! She celebrated her first British Mother’s Day just Sunday, and was so excited for the holiday!

“Happy mamas day to all of us!” the singer-songwriter Tweeted on the special day. “This is my first one! Never been happier 🙂 xx.”

I’m hoping she will at least reveal a name of her five-month-old son (it’s rumored to be Angelo). But congrats to her and boyfriend Simon Konecki for having their first Mother’s Day celebration! I’m sure they are adjusting to parenthood quite nicely.

Adele’s Verbal Slap to Chris Brown?

The question mark really should be removed from that title of this post, because we know Adele was not congratulating that bastard for anything, right?!

Adele and Chris Brown may have shared a moment or three at The Grammys, but I doubt any of them were tender. Look at the fear on her face as she poses with him… “Would he beat a new mother?” Oh, Adele! The things we must do when the paparazzi catch us off guard! Adele luckily had no mic on her when she appeared to be scolding the bad-boy R&B singer.

As Frank Ocean took to the stage to receive his award for Best Urban Contemporary Album, everyone in attendance stood up to congratulate the singer. Everyone that is, except for Chris Brown. It seems he is still holding a grudge after altercation only a week or so ago. Adele, seated only a few feet away, looked ready to roll reg_634.Adele.CBrown1.mh.021113 deep into Chris. The next time Adele, we have some advice for you. Just tell your people that you cannot pose with men that beat on women and flee before they start snappin’ away!!

CELEB SPOTTING: Adele in L.A. Toting Her Baby

Adele has her sights on a Golden Globe, touching down in Los Angeles on Thursday for Sunday’s event. The singer was spotted carrying her newborn son, who was born in October.

Adele is up for a Golden Globe for her song “Skyfall” which was used in the newest James Bond movie. This event will be her first official appearance since she had the baby, the first for her and boyfriend Simon Konecki. This picture is the closest that the public has ever gotten to see the kid, whose name is still unknown.

“Skyfall” is up for Best Original Song, and is up against some serious contendersi ncluding Taylor Swift’s Hunger Games song, “Safe & Sound,” Jon Bon Jovi’s “Not Running Anymore” from Stand Up Guys and “Suddenly,” which was sung in Les Misérables by Hugh Jackman.

Guess we’ll see who wins on Sunday! Good luck Adele!

Lady Gaga vs. Adele

As if! There’s nothing to see here people. Move on. It’s really a shame when two women are pitted against one another, even if one wasn’t born one. But before you move on, let’s hear what Lady Caca had to say about Adele, aka The Greatest Singer In The World…

“I was acutely aware of some photos on the internet — my mom called me and was like, ‘Did you gain weight?’ — everybody was telling me about it, and I didn’t really care. I thought, well I don’t really care if they think I’m fat, because, quite honestly, I did gain about 30 pounds. Adele is bigger than me — how come nobody says anything about it? She’s so wonderful and I think her confidence is something I have to match. She has set the bar very high for a lot of woman. I need to be a confident woman and just say politically active things when I can that are helpful to young people.”

Gaga is right about one thing. Adele is bigger than her…in every way: talent, records sold, and fan base. These are all things that her little monsters may not want to concede, but the proof lies in the pudding, and Lady Gaga has been stuffing her face with that recently!

Since most women in the world look like Adele than Lady Gaga, we already know who wins this battle, and Adele has not said nary a word. And why should she? Gaga is barely even human, more than likely has an enlarge peen to boot, and is so over the top the Goodyear Blimp is looking up at her!

Adele’s BabyThing Arrives!

The Greatest Singer in the Universe (sorry, Celine Dion, but you have been replaced!!) has just had her greatest release yet. Adele and boyfriend Simon Konecki celebrated the birth of a baby boy on Friday, according to sources. The singer announced the birth via her blog:

“I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time.”
Now that Adele has given birth to his child, there are rumors and further reports that the two are going to tie the knot soon so that her newborn won’t be a bastard for long. Although I am happy that Adele has given birth, I’m like everyone else when I say that Simon needs to put a ring on it and make an honest woman of her!

Adele Is With Child

The most famous singer (at the moment. suck it, Beyonce!) on the planet has a reason for taking some time off between her albums. The reason is that the British chanteuse is carrying a babything. Now, usually, I am not the one to get all emotional and teary-eyed over a celebrity bringing another creature into the world that is more than likely to wind up with a name that no child in the history of civilization has ever had, but for once…for once, I’m actually kuh-velling and wish nothing but the best for this amazing phenom that is forced to sing alongside some of the worst excuses for talent in modern pop history (yes, you Britney!). But I digress…

Her statement reads:

I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx

Adele’s man better not do her wrong, because if he does we all will be subjected to his cheating/lying ways on her next record and what man really wants the whole world to know how he cheated?

Alex Sturrock Is Supposedly Adele’s Ex Boyfriend Who Inspired 21

Remember when I mentioned that Slinky Winfield may have been Adele’s ex-boyfriend who inspired Adele’s 21 album?

But now we are hearing that it is a different guy. Of course. Become familiar with Alex Sturrock for hot minute. The man has been revealed as a photographer who was Adele’s main squeeze back in the day.

Ok what I am wondering is how many other guys are going to come out claiming that they once knocked boots with Adele and broke her heart.

Photo taken by Alex Sturrock

A friend of Alex said, “It was an intense period for them. They met through mutual friends and hit it off straight away. He shot her a few times and that was just it. They spent all their time together – and when they weren’t together they would ring each other constantly.”

Supposedly, Alex was hired on as Adele’s official photographer on her US tour and they would shack up in hotel rooms wherever they traveled. The friend added, “He’s a very normal guy and they’d laugh a lot together, eat junk food and ignore the fact that her career was about to go stratospheric. Adele relied on him a lot, he was her best mate as well as her boyfriend and he was very protective of her. He’d say no one knew her like he did.”

Well, some friend this guy is for selling Alex out, IF he is the guy.

Karl Lagerfeld Sends Chanel bags to Adele! But is that enough?

Karl Lagerfeld basically called Adele fat publicly and sure he dug himself a big fat grave, especially with the legions of fans that follow Adele and grieve for her past depressing love life.

But now, in addition to a whoops, I’m sorry public apology, Lagerfeld has offered sending Adele a big fat collection of Chanel bags worth a whole helluva ching.

A source said, “Karl has been filming for the new YouTube Chanel TV channel and mentioned his plans to patch things up. He told his team to send Adele the best the fashion house have to offer after hearing she collected bags. He said he really wanted to make it up to her so they could maybe work together in the future. He could see her fronting a campaign for Chanel Mademoiselle bags when the contract with Blake Lively ends. He’s annoyed with himself because he ended up insulting her when he meant to compliment her. He thinks she’s beautiful and calls her divine.”

In my opinion, he opened up his pocket book a tad too late. Plus, I’m pretty sure Adele could buy as many got damn handbags as she wants to with her own money. If I were her I’d be sending the bags to eBay and a truckload of Depends over to Mr. Lagerfeld and tell him, “So, I’m over it. Shit happens”.

Rihanna is an Adele stalker

Rihanna leaving Jonathan Ross’s studio.

Rihanna stopped by the Jonathan Ross show in London to chat and one of the highlights of the interview was her stalker revelation. And by stalker, I am referring to Ri as THE stalker.

RiRi said that she is a HUGE fan of Adele but her heartbreaking love songs are sometimes too much for her to listen to. She told Ross, “It’s hard to say a (favorite) track. The last album 21 just spoke to me so much – to the point where I had to stop listening to it ’cause it was depressing me so much. You become so attached to the stories, it’s really something you identify with.”

The stalker in her came out at the Brit Awards in London last month when she hoped that she would accidentally “bump” into Adele. She explained, “Really I came to the Brits to stalk Adele. It was nothing about the awards or the performance, for me it was just to see Adele again. She doesn’t know the depth of my affection, just the surface. She has no idea.”

Well she sure knows now.

Adele 21 Album on Top of BillBoard Charts For 21 Weeks

Adele is a chart-topping queen, beating out Whitney Houston’s album chart record (US) by becoming the very FIRST female artist to stay at number one for 21 weeks! And ironically she did it with her album titled “21”.

It was yesterday that the results came in citing Adele as breaking Houston’s record for The Bodyguard soundtrack just 11 days after Whitney passed away in a Los Angeles hotel suite on the eve of the Grammy Awards. And we all know that the Grammy awards was quite successful for Adele as she received SIX gold statues including the big one for Album of the Year.

In addition to the big Grammys Adele had THREE of her singles land in the top 10 all in the same week. Um, talk about music industry domination.

It just may be a tad difficult for the British singer to top this album. Don’t ya think?

Speaking of chart toppers, Katy Perry is also back at the top of the pop charts after becoming the 20th artist to debut at number one AND her song “Part of Me” is her seventh number one hit.

Adele Acceptance Speech Cut Off, Flips Middle Finger VIDEO

Adele may have had a wildly successful night at the Brit Awards last night in London, but she didn’t get the royal treatment that the United States gave her on Grammys night. She was awarded THE biggest award of the evening by George Michael and as she presented her speech, fighting back tears and thanking her fans, the event’s host James Corden interrupted her speech to introduce rockers Blur, who were closing the awards show with a five-song set.

It was when Adele was being rushed to get off the stage when she flipped her middle finger to show that she wasn’t having it!

Adele backs up her finger throwing by saying, “I flung the middle finger. That was for the suits (organizers) at the Brit Awards, not my fans. I’m sorry if I offended anyone but the suits offended me. I was about to thank the British public for all their support but they cut me off. So thank you very much for all your support. It’s amazing, so thank you very much.”

As for the “suits”? An apologetic Corden said after the show, “I’m alright – I just feel bad about having to cut Adele off. I really don’t understand quite why I was made to (by TV bosses), but it’s not a very nice way to end. I was having the best night of my life but then I had to cut Adele off before she had a chance to say thank you – she’s the biggest star in the world. I don’t quite understand what happened – but I’m quite upset about it.
“Blur playing for 11 minutes and she gets to just say ‘Thank you’ once. Up until then, I thought we’d really (been terrific).”

A spokesperson for ITV adds, “The Brits is a live event. Unfortunately the program was over running and we had to move on. We would like to apologize to Adele for the interruption.”

Come on ITV! I thought we learned from that Kanye incident. I’m shaking my head.

Adele has a Sex Tape?

Now before you freak out, there is no such thing as an Adele sex tape. It’s false. It’s nonexistent. A French tabloid has taken it upon themselves to publish some photos that they are saying are Adele engaging in some sexual acts. And now Adele is fighting back and sicking her legal team on the magazine called “Public”. In other words, that creepy looking woman on the cover with whacked out eyebrows is NOT the six time Grammy winner.

Adele’s attorneys released a statement saying, “We are informed that the French magazine Public has today published images which it claims show our client in a sex tape. Our client has not appeared in a sex tape as claimed in the article. Our client does not appear in the photographs. Such claims are untrue and grossly defamatory. Our client is taking legal action in relation to this matter.”

I feel sorry for paparazzo Jean-Claude Elfassi who sent over those images. You see that tiny little picture on the cover of that mag? According to Elfassi and “Public”, THAT is Adele. Geez, at least get the eyebrows right for gawd’s sake.

Come on people, do you actually think Adele would make a sex tape? Cripes. Let’s leave the sex tapes to talentless fame whores!

Is Slinky Winfield Adele’s ex boyfriend who inspired “21”?

Is Slinky Winfield (aka Slinky Sunbean) Adele’s ex-boyfriend who inspired the multiple Grammy award winning album “21”?

It has been a mystery as to who inspired Adele’s “21” album…until now. We got a little hint as to who the ex-boyfriend was who hurt Adele enough to make her write some emotional and depressing lyrics that pieced together “21”.

In a recent interview Adele doesn’t exactly slam her ex-boyfriend because he was an inspiration for the album. “You know, he was amazing. He was great. but it was never going to work. And for ages I was like, as if he deserves any f**king kudos for inspiring my record. But now, after some time, it only seems right that the person who so far has had the biggest impact on me – has now changed my life for f**king ever with this album – deserves a little credit.”

She went on to say, “I can do things that I never dreamed I’d be able to do. If I hadn’t met him, I think I’d still be that little girl I was when I was eighteen. And the best thing is, I now know what I want for myself and from someone else. I didn’t know what I wanted before.”

So what do we know about Slinky? Not a whole lot. What we do know is that he is a singer and aspiring actor.

The New York Post got a hold of one of Adele’s friends who said that “Adele likes to keep part of her life back for herself, but it’s an open secret that Slinky was the guy who inspired 21…. He’s a seriously good-looking guy. He has a great body and likes to wear vests to show it off. And he has this crazy hair which reminds me of Jimi Hendrix — it’s really wild and untamed. It’s easy to see what attracted Adele to him. He’s a really popular guy, the life and soul of the party, and he’s a musician as well. But while Adele has the knack for writing songs which the whole world can tap into, Slinky’s material is more underground and kind of art-school trendy.”

Wow. Well I wonder how it feels for him to be the most hated guy in America! Breaking Adele’s heart. I’m shaking my head.

Adele Covers Vogue: Talks Drinking, Grammys and Sex

Adele is the “it” girl for Vogue’s March 2012 issue and rightfully so! Girlfriend cleaned house at the Grammys ceremony last night winning SIX gold trophies.

Check out the amazing photos (that are unfortunately photoshopped wayyy too much) and highlights from the Vogue interview below.

ON HER “LOUD” PERSONALITY:

“I am quite loud and bolshie. I’m a big personality. I walk into a room, big and tall and loud.” Indeed. There is no doubt when Adele is in the building. The rule of thumb for protecting one’s vocal cords, she tells me, is: If people are more than an arm’s length away, you shouldn’t talk to them. “But I am like, Wah! Wah! Wah! It’s really bad.”

ON GIVING UP DRINKING LAST MAY:

“Don’t like drinking anymore. I think I got it out of my system. D’yaknowhaImean?”

ON HER VOCAL TROUBLES:

“I’ve been singing properly every day since I was about fifteen or sixteen and I have never had any problems with my voice, ever. I’ve had a sore throat here and there, had a cold and sung through it, but that day it just went while I was onstage in Paris during a radio show. It was literally like someone had pulled a curtain over it.” She flew to London the next morning to see her doctor and was diagnosed with acute laryngitis. After a couple weeks’ rest, she continued her European tour, came to America, and then her voice went again in May. “That was a hemorrhage… a burst blood vessel on my vocal cord. That healed, I did a tour, and then it happened again at my best friend’s wedding on October 1.”

ON GETTING SUPPORT THROUGH HER SURGERY FROM OTHER ARTISTS:

“John Mayer had it done at the same time as I did and he really helped me be chilled out about it. Roger Daltrey’s had loads of stuff done; Steven Tyler reached out; Elton John. Lots of artists have had problems with their voices, but you don’t know about it. And they are still singing incredibly well in their 50s and 60s.”

ON HER CELEBRITY STATUS:

“I hate the red carpet. I don’t feel insecure, I just feel like, Oh, I don’t want to do this. I literally get a stomach cramp. At the VMA’s last year I felt really out of my comfort zone because there were so many superstars there. But that’s been the case from day one. I never feel like, Oh, yeah, I should be here. And I was missing my best friend’s hen night. So I was a bit bitter that I wasn’t there, to be perfectly honest.”

ON HER BEST AND WORST QUALITIES AS A GIRLFRIEND:

“Oh, my God! love a bit of drama. That’s a bad thing. I can flip really quickly. I am not bipolar, but I go from ‘Oh, my God, I love you’ to ‘Get the fuck out of my house!’ really quickly. And I never sit there and talk about it. I give them the silent treatment. They’re like, ‘Tell me what I’ve done so I can say sorry!’ What else? It used to be that I loved a drink a bit too much. But I don’t drink no more. The good things: I am attentive. I will do anything for my man. I am a good cook. I’m funny. Always want to have sex.” She cracks up. “Well, most girls don’t!”

ON HER SIX GRAMMY NOMINATION:

“I burst into tears when I found out. And I would love, absolutely love, to win. This record is coming to an end, and that would be the final brick on it.”

Check out the full interview and photos from Vogue here.
