Adele storms out of interview with TV host Matt Doran after he said he hadn't heard '30'
When asked about this incident Doran said, 'I had no idea I'd been sent a preview of Adele's unreleased album when I sat down to interview her'
Adele is said to have stormed out on an Australian TV host who went 10,000 miles to interview her for $725,000 because he hadn't listened to her new album. According to the newspaper Daily Telegraph, Seven Network anchor Matt Doran went from Sydney to London earlier this month to interview Adele as part of a multi-million dollar contract that includes the rights to Adele's Oprah Winfrey special and two-hour return concert.
During the interview, Adele asked the presenter of "Weekend Sunrise" what he thought of her new album "30," to which the host Matt Doran reportedly replied, "I haven't listened to it." Adele stormed out of the interview after becoming offended and later Sony refused Seven to use her label. According to a Seven, this made Australia "the only market in the world" without a one-on-one with Adele to promote the release of her album.
"It has clearly enraged Seven. Matt was chastised... He should have done his homework," the source added, adding that the host has been sidelined for two weeks. When asked about this incident Doran replied, "I had no idea I'd been sent a preview of Adele's unreleased album when I sat down to interview her, It was provided to me as an 'e card' link, which I accidentally missed upon arrival in London. It was an oversight, not a purposeful snub,”
He also said sorry while admitting that "this is the most crucial email I've ever missed" and also asserted that, "Adele didn't storm out. It was actually the polar opposite". He claimed that "what was supposed to be 20 minutes was prolonged to 29 minutes." Doran, who returned to hosting his show this weekend, stated that he had just been absent from the show and that he had not been formally suspended.
He said, "I'm completely perplexed. I've pleaded with Sony to make the interview public.” Doran teased his interview with a snapshot of his crew in London on Nov. 4, adding, "This one is going to be pretty special..." Meanwhile, an ABC political reporter called Matt Doran tweeted, "Go easy on me..." as he prepared to be confused for his namesake.
On the other hand, many Twitter users were seen expressing their views regarding this event. One person blamed Adele for tweeting, “Everyone doesn’t have to listen to your music to interview you. Especially if they’re asking basic questions. Artists are emotional.”

Another person commented, “If a reporter is going to ask about your album, they should at least listen to a few songs, it's called research. Do you show up to your job unprepared and do it well?”
