It’s not just her amazing voice that’s got us talking…
Let’s be honest, Adele is a complete goddess. With an amazing voice, she also has personality to match – famous for her curvaceous figure, big hair and thick accent, there’s little to loathe about her. (Is being too perfect a thing?)
True to her sound and herself, refusing cave to boring stereotypes, she’s a bit of a unicorn in Hollywood. And with the release of her 25 just last week, we’ve once again found ourselves reflecting on what makes her the queen of cool. Here are just eight reasons Adele is a total queen…
1. She can laugh at herself
In her recent skit with Graham Norton, along with a prosthetic nose and chin, Adele or ‘Jenny’ showed us she’s down to earth and willing to have a little fun at her own expense. And her prank is blooy genius.
2. She’s proud of her body
Adele is famous for laying it all out on the line when it comes to body image, saying, “I love food and hate exercise. I don’t have time to work out. I don’t want to be on the cover of Playboy or Vogue. I want to be on the cover of Rolling Stone or Q. I’m not a trend-setter. I’m a singer. I’d rather weigh a ton and make an amazing album than look like Nicole Richie and do a s**t album. My aim in life is to never be skinny.” #WORD.
3. She gives zero f*cks
Back in 2011, before her vocal surgery, Adele performed a concert, Live At Royal Albert Hall, for her film. The evening was a success with the singer excelling at what she does best. However just before the finale Adele told fans she was sick of her heels and promised to perform her biggest hits when she returned from side stage where she was removing her shoes.
4. She’s the anti-diva
Adele has been open about the fact she’s not into diva dramas, recently telling i-D, “I just want to have a real life so I can write records. No one wants to listen to a record from someone that’s lost touch with reality. So I live a low-key life for my fans.”
5. She embraces her flaws
Like anybody, Adele has insecurities and mishaps but has no shame in hiding them from the public. Not only does she still suffer from terrible stage fright, she’s admitted her big mouth has lead to her being barred from Twitter.
“I go through three people [to tweet]. I’m not allowed any passwords to anything because of drunken tweets and all that. I’d put my foot in the mouth with that.” Who can’t relate to that?
6. Other celebs love her
It’s hard enough to have a run-of-the-mill adult adore you, but when other celebs like Beyonce and Elton John start admiring you, you know you’re doing something right.
“I was about to meet Beyonce, 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.'”
7. She’s willing to have a go
Jimmy Fallon and The Roots teamed up with the songstress to perform a stripped down version of her recent hit, Hello. The twist? The ensemble only used classic classroom instruments. The fab collab proved that Adele is always willing to have fun, give it a go and up for a good time.
