Adele Reveals We’ve All Been Saying Her Name Wrong
During a fan Q&A in London, Adele admitted that we’ve all been pronouncing her name incorrectly.
It wasn’t the question that drew the 34-year-attention old’s as one of his supporters approached the microphone.
“I love that,” Adele exclaimed. “She said my name perfectly!” Is she from Enfield or something? “
It’s pronounced ‘uh-dale’ rather than ‘ah-dell.’
“I just discovered I’ve been pronouncing Adele’s name incorrectly my entire life,” one fan joked.
Adele Returns to the Stage in Las Vegas, Resolute and Reflective
The pop star’s “Weekends With Adele” residency kicked off after nearly a year of delays, with a design emphasizing intimacy and a setlist heavy on her breakthrough album “21” from 2011.
Adele has become a phenomenally successful superstar in Las Vegas by presenting herself as an oxymoron: a relatable diva.
In one breath, the 34-year-old British musician will unleash a gale-force note that could shake the foundation of a building, and in the next, she will utter a colorful expletive in her Tottenham accent. Her nails are always immaculately manicured, and she typically waves them around to dismiss something ridiculous she’s just said.
To be a diva, one must maintain an aura of inaccessibility. Adele maintains a degree of separation from her personal life, particularly between albums, but her public persona and relationship with her fans are based on the notion that she is someone with whom you could share a glass of wine, or perhaps a bottle.
Thus, there was cognitive dissonance when Adele canceled her highly publicized Las Vegas residency just 24 hours before opening night in January. Some ticketholders had already visited the venue, while others had booked flights and accommodations around upcoming performances. Adele told her fans in a tearful Instagram video that the set and production design were not up to her standards, attributing some of the shortcomings to pandemic delays.
This was certainly not the down-to-earth behavior that people have come to expect from Adele. However, in an August interview, she stated that the decision was still correct: “The stage setup wasn’t right. She referred to the fiasco as “by far the worst moment of my career” because of its lack of intimacy and disconnection from her and her band.
