Adele Thought That Elton John Was a Prank Caller

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Features,

AdeleAdele mistook Elton John for a prank caller and refused to talk to him.

The 21 singer said she received a call from the "Rocket Man" singer before she was due to attend the Grammy Awards ceremony this year where she won in six categories. She, however, thought that the 65-year-old star was someone else playing a joke on her.

"I had no idea who it was and he just started chatting away to me and I passed the phone over to a friend and I was like, 'Yeah, it's Elton.' It still cracks me up. It made me think my God, it's another level now."

Meanwhile the 24-year-old star has revealed that she would be "mortified" if any of her ex-boyfriends wrote songs about her. The "Rolling in the Deep" singer said she would panic if one of her former partners publicly revealed details of their relationship: "I'd f****** s*** myself. I'd be mortified. But also if they wrote songs about me, they'd be: 'This song's about Adele.' I've never given any names ever, but everyone's going to know this song's about me. No-one actually knows who my songs are about."

Adele’s ‘21’ Heartbreaker Revealed?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Break-ups, Rumors,

AdeleThe mystery man who inspired Adele's album of heartbreak was reportedly photographer Alex Sturrock.

The "Someone Like You" singer penned album 21 about her devastating split with an unnamed man - whom she has so far refused to identify. But according to a new report, her lost love was non other than the 31-year-old snapper who she is believed to have dated between the summer of 2008 and spring 2009.

"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," a source said.

Adele, 23, is said to have employed him as the official photographer on her US tour, where they shared hotel rooms. "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," the insider added.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Style, Kind Acts, Rumors,

Karl Lagerfeld and AdeleKarl Lagerfeld has apologized for calling Adele fat by giving her a handbag.

The Chanel creative director has reportedly gifted the "Someone Like You" singer with a collection of the fashion house's bags to say sorry for branding her a "little too fat" in a French magazine earlier this year.

"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," a source said.

Adele ‘Wants to Lose Weight’

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Rumors,

Adele at this year's GrammysAdele reportedly wants to lose weight.

The "Someone Like You" hitmaker has apparently embarked on a fitness regime in a bid to drop two dress sizes before the summer. Having shed several pounds after undergoing surgery on her vocal chords last year, Adele has also quit smoking and is said to been keen to continue her good work.

"Adele has found so much more energy now she's quit smoking. She really wants to get healthier, now that she's half-way there. She had always been curious about taking up Pilates but until recently there just hadn't been any time," a source said.

Last month fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld came under fire after branding Adele a "little too fat," but the 23-year-old singer insists she would never lose weight for anyone other than herself: "'I've never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I'm very proud of that. I'd lose weight if I was an actress and had to play a role where you're supposed to be 40lbs lighter, but weight has nothing to do with my career. Even when I was signing [a contract], most of the industry knew if anyone ever dared say [lose weight] to me, they wouldn't be working with me."

The "Someone Like You" singer wanted to celebrate her 18th birthday with a bash to remember and refused to let the offer of a contract get in the way, according to school friend Allan Rose.

"It was typical Adele. Her pals were more important," he said.

Allan met Adele at the BRIT school - which also counts Jessie J, Amy Winehouse and Leona Lewis amongst its past pupils - where he says everyone knew she was destined for great things: "It was clear she was going to be a star. Some people were that step above everyone else, and Adele was one of them. She was just naturally musically gifted."

Julia Roberts is Protective of Adele

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Music,

AdeleJulia Roberts has issued a strong warning to any man wishing to date Adele. The Pretty Woman actress is a huge fan of the "Someone Like You" singer and has threatened to harm her next boyfriend if her treats her badly.

"Anybody that's going to date her is a brave, brave man. You're going to get a whole lot of love, but you'd better treat her right, or we're all coming after you," she told Entertainment Weekly. Julia says the reason Adele, 23, has become a worldwide star is because people can relate to her and the pain and heartache she's going through: "Adele's music is so personal that you get invested in her life. When Adele had her health scare, I had random people saying to me, 'Oh my God, did you hear about Adele?' We feel like Adele's in our book club or she lives near us - that's a gift, to make people feel that way."

Meanwhile, Adele - who recently underwent throat surgery - has revealed she is going to take a couple of years to work on her third album, following the huge success of 19 and 21. "I imagine I'll be 25 or 26 by the time my next record comes out, as I haven't even thought about my third record yet. I'm just going to lay some concrete, set up home and just be for a bit. I'll disappear and come back with a record when it's good enough."
