Adele, a British singer, is known for rising to fame with her powerful and distinctive voice. She has consistently set new sales records with each album she has released since her debut. The most successful female musician of all time is revered for the touchy music inspired by her personal experiences, including the hit singles “Someone Like You” and “Rolling in the Deep” from her landmark album 21. The album has been her most famous and commemorates its tenth anniversary this year.
The details we know about our Grammy-winner songwriter and singer entail that she has incorporated her heartbroken experience into her work. Moreover, her recent million-dollar divorce from charity owner Simon Konecki comes almost three years after the couple first announced their separation, so we should expect to hear more.
However, there are many small interesting things that fans do not know about Adele. Now, when she has recently dropped an album on the market, it would be fun to learn some interesting facts about the Grammy winner singer while listening to her new music.
She is a gym-goer but hates it.
The gym, to some, is a place to vent and zone out. However, for others, working out in the gym is nothing but a chore. Adele exclaimed,
“I’m not, like, skipping to the f***ing gym. I don’t enjoy it. I do like doing weights. I don’t like looking in the mirror. Blood vessels burst on my face really easily, so I’m so conscious when I’m lifting weights not to let them burst in my face.”
We totally understand. Weight lifting is certainly a great exercise, but bursting facial blood vessels sounds like a hassle!
Adele shares the most Grammys awards in a night record with Beyoncé
Even though Adele has won several Grammys over the years, she brought home six on the same night in 2012, including album and song of the year.
She’s tied with Beyoncé with the title for the most Grammys won by a female artist in a single evening. Beyoncé set the record in 2010.
Adele has an alter ego, Sasha Carter.
Adele once said that she created an alter ego in 2011 to hype herself up right before meeting Beyoncé.
She revealed to Rolling Stone.
“I was about to meet Beyoncé, and I had a full-blown anxiety attack. Then she popped in looking gorgeous and said, ‘You’re amazing! When I listen to you, I feel like I’m listening to God.’ Can you believe she said that?”
Afterward, she cried and thought,
“‘What would Sasha Fierce do?’ That’s when Sasha Carter was born.”
According to Rolling Stone, the name Sasha Carter is a mix of the popular singer June Carter and Beyoncé’s “Sasha Fierce.”
She had a difficult 30th
Adele posted a snap to her Instagram captioned:
“30 tried me so hard, but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean into it all. No matter how long we’re here for, life is constant and complicated at times. I’ve changed drastically in the last couple of years, and I’m still changing, and that’s OK.”
She underwent significant changes that year, particularly regarding her physical appearance! However, her fans accepted and loved her through every single change.
She likes naysayers
Celebrities deal with many people who always say “yes” to them. The workers and fellows around celebs usually have a yes-ma’am and yes-sir attitude. But Adele likes those who show spine and speak up for their opinion. She said,
“I deal with them (naysayers) all the time. My manager, best friend, partner, etc., are all like that. It is better than people who keep saying yes to you. It is better to have them.” It is better to have honest people in your life rather than people who want to always be on your “good side.”
The singer loves her son but also misses the freedom
Adele has a son, and she recently revealed how she feels about her motherhood so far. She said,
“I think it’s the bravest thing not to have a child; all my friends and I felt pressurized into having kids because that’s what adults do. I love my son more than anything, but on a daily basis, if I have a minute or two, I wish I could do whatever the f*** I wanted, whenever I want. Every single day I feel like that.”
According to Vanity Fair, many new moms can relate to Adele’s feelings about motherhood and how it takes away full-fledged freedom.
She kicked her smoking habit in 2015
Adele underwent throat surgery in 2011, which must have been tremendously nerve-wracking for her considering how good a vocalist she is. A few years later, in 2015, she decided to permanently quit smoking. She made a wise and committed decision to give up the bad habit since numerous physical and health problems are linked to smoking.
She attended the same school as Leona Lewis, Jessie J, & Amy Winehouse.
Adele formerly studied at the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology. Leona Lewis, Jessie J, and the late Amy Winehouse were among the other well-known pupils who went to the same institution. It’s clear that the institution has a strong track record of enrolling talented kids. When Adele was a student at the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology, she was among some extremely gifted individuals.
Adele is all for equality.
Adele identified herself as a feminist in 2015. Some celebrities are apprehensive about making such a claim because they don’t want to face a lot of reactions. However, she was concerned about equality for everyone, regardless of gender, race, or sexual orientation. Miley Cyrus has also spoken for equality on numerous occasions in recent years. Taylor Swift is another famous person who has made the decision to defend similar ideals.
- Her album names are unique for a reason.
Adele was 19 years old when she composed all of the lyrics for her album 19. It means she designed her album names to coincide with her age when writing the lyrics. The songwriter followed the same pattern for her album 21 and then album 25, too. She wrote down the song lyrics as evidence that she had a lot going on in her life during those years.
