I cannot get enough of her latest single "Cold Shoulder".
I first heard of British singer Adele when I saw the video “Chasing Pavement” on MTV Italia. I heard that song non-stop during my first few months in Italy.
What is in the water in the U.K.? Why do so many soulful singers come from there? She went to the same performing arts high school as Leona Lewis, Amy Winehouse and Kate Nash.
She mentioned in the press that her weight is brought up more in America than in London. I was reading some of the comments when found this clip. People are so cruel. Who cares what she looks like as long as she’s healthy? She’s thick not fat…we all know the camera adds weight. I don’t think some one who is a 10-12 is obese. She isn’t trying to sell herself as a sex symbol. She started out as a jazz singer not a pop creation. Anyway I think she is crazy talented. I have serious respect for singers who actually write their own lyrics. Something about putting pen to paper and expressing themselves makes the songs resonate more to me.
I finally bought the song on iTunes after hearing it during commercials for the new season of Italia’s Next Top Model.
Adele’s voice is fantastic. Is she getting play in the States? I’m bummed another British singer, Estelle. isn’t becoming a bigger star in America. Why? Her CD is excellent. She's still getting major play here in Italy.
Here is the video.
