Adele reveals we've been mispronouncing her name as she compliments fan for putting it 'perfectly'
A fan appeared to pronounce Adele's name with a north-London accent, calling her 'uh-dale' rather than 'ah-dell', which is reportedly the correct pronunciation
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Singer-songwriter Adele was recently amused by how a fan said her name and revealed that we had all been saying it incorrectly. The Grammy winner, 34, cleared the air about her name during a recent Q&A session called 'Happy Hour with Adele' with fans in Los Angeles to promote the premiere of her 'I Drink Wine' music video. She declared that the London-based admirer had nailed it.
“I love that. She pronounced my name perfectly,” Adele enthused. “Where’s she from, Enfield or something?” Adele made the statement after a fan from London asked her a question via satellite about composing through, as reported by People. The fan appeared to pronounce Adele's name with a north-London accent, calling her "uh-dale" rather than "ah-dell," which is the correct pronunciation, according to the Enfield native who was raised in Tottenham, north London. "Love that," Adele said, adding, "She said my name perfectly!"
In the same Q&A, the songwriter addressed whether she is interested in completing the elusive EGOT, having previously won an Emmy, an Oscar, and several Grammys. "I can't lie guys, I'm not a massive Broadway fan," she said. "I know, I know. I'm talking about musicals though because I've been seeing a couple of plays but I don't think I've seen enough."
Fans with deep pockets will be able to scream it out to the diva herself as tickets for her rescheduled 'Weekends with Adele' residency at Caesars Palace Colosseum in Las Vegas have soared to nearly £40,000 ($45573.40) online on certain resale sites this week. They were initially priced from £70 ($79.75) to £600 ($683.60).
The 'Weekends With Adele' concerts are set to take place from November 18, 2022, to March 25, 2023. While she is only now putting the performance back on track after a brief hiatus, she has confessed that she has contemplated changing it into something that could lead to a future Tony win. "I don't think I've seen enough [Broadway] as a grown-up to know if I would want to do it. I was wondering, 'Do I just move the show from Vegas to Broadway and win the Tony?' I actually prefer the sound of an EGO than an EGOT," Adele said at the event. "EGO is fun. But never say never. If I move to New York, I get bored, I'll be on that stage in a hot second."
The 'Hello' hitmaker startled fans in January when she canceled the original run only a day before it was set to begin. She apologized to viewers in an emotional video posted to social media, claiming, "My show ain't ready." She later called the cancellation "the worst moment" of her career.
