Singer Adele is setting the file straight on the right way to pronounce her identify.
At a current Q&A occasion in Los Angeles, the singer debuted her new music video, “I Drink Wine” and chatted together with her followers.
One British fan submitted a query by way of video and earlier than answering, Adele was shocked on the excellent pronunciation of her identify.
“The place’s she from, Enfield?” she laughed, citing a North London city close to her hometown of Tottenham. “She stated my identify completely.”
She defined to the host of the occasion, Benito Skinner aka Benny Drama, that followers have sometimes referred to her as “uh-dell.”
The singer went on to say she prefers a slight lilt on the finish of her identify in order that it’s pronounced “uh-dehwl.” The pronunciation is extra consistent with her North London accent.
The London-based fan who nailed the pronunciation had requested in regards to the singer’s “journey to self-love whereas writing ‘30’” — her most up-to-date album.
“On ‘25’ (album launched in 2015) I used to be very answerable for my life. I’d simply had my son, it was very a lot 9-to-5. I’d go to the studio and stuff like that…I felt very very secure and in secure arms inside my non-public life,” she stated. “On ‘30,’ I simply needed to settle for I had no thought what I used to be doing, I had no management over my life and I needed to journey the wave.”
She added that she’d felt like “a foul individual” whereas she was engaged on her newest album, which got here after her divorce from Simon Konecki.
“I felt like a weak individual. However I knew…the one factor that I needed to do, the factor that received me away from bed actually, was understanding I’m going to the studio.”
“I assume I fell fairly far down in my estimations of myself once I was engaged on it,” she concluded. “However then, by the top, by means of all of the onerous work and endurance, I restored my religion in myself.”
