  • huh, ok

    dont get the hype.
    her music is boring.
    she is too huge.
    and she looks like she is 45 years old rather than 23.

  • Alan

    why does she always wear the same dress for everything?

  • NYCoolKid

    She looks like a teacher I don’t get all the hype either shes an average singer at best I’ve heard way better also she has no sex appeal remeber sex sales people!

  • AutumnM

    Okay anyone saying Adele is an average singer is full of it! This girl can SANG! She has such a powerful and gritty voice. Her voice is fantastic. On the other hand, I do agree that she can change up her wardrobe and hair stylings more. I understand that when you’re a bigger girl it can be harder to find flattering styles, but it doesn’t mean she has to always dress so boring! And yes she does look way older than 23. I can’t believe i’m a year older than her. She looks way older than me and most 23 year olds I know. Adele has a snooty air about her though that I don’t like, but she is VERY talented. That can’t be denied.

    omg! absolutely stunning!!! <3

  • JAck

    Her voice is angelic! And for her clothing and her style. Its called looking like a lady. Alot of female singers these days have no respect for who they are. Adele is an example of a true lady.

  • Maria

    I Love her!!!! I was Just listening to her songs tonight and watching her on you tube- I think she is so beautiful in so many ways. :)

  • Yo-Landi

    People are so shallow. I love that she doesn’t care what shallow people think about her appearance and “style” and all. She’s great the way she is. Leave her be! I’m actually glad she’s not dressing like a ho. Like most so-called singers today. She dresses like a lady, that is to say with CLASS. Something lacking in the damn business. Oh and the people calling her an “average” singer, I suggest you look her up on youtube or something, cause the girl has one of these voices that touches you deep down into your soul and you feel her words and emotion. That’s rare!! She somehow reminds me of a bigger version of Christina Aguilera (whom I adore btw). Both of their voices are amazingly soulful and powerful. And they have the almost the same eyes and nose and lips combo XD …. I am actually a new fan of Adele because I have taken the time to actually listen to her songs before judging. And I was impressed. I rarely am. Only talented divas (they deserve that title) do impress me. So yeah, listen to her. You cannot deny her talent. She said in an interview that her aim in life was never to get skinny….. Well, I hope she’ll keep that promise. We don’t need another bimbo. I love the music she brings to my EARS.

  • yep

    First of all she sings without that autotune. She’s already ahead of 90% of the crappy singers out today because of that. Plus she sings with convictionand wrote them too. Yeah sh looks older than her age but many people do it doesn’t mean she isn’t pretty. Also it’s a good thing she’s mostly in the British market because in this country people would be talking about how she needs to lose weight. She’s a singer not an actress.

  • love her

    one thing I noticed about Adele are her many concert cancellations. I’m not hating but it was found out that the last time she was to tour the US she cancelled due to a cold but in reality ishe wanted to be with her man and travel with him!

  • Taylor

    She looks like the 3rd member of the Judd family.Very pretty.

    Congrats to Americans who have embraced quality over trash.

  • k

    Congrats Adele!

  • John

    better than the Bieber???of cause..A real talent singer doesn’t need to overexposed every single thing he/she doing, dating in the beach, showing up surprise in a wedding and other dumb things. You got the voice, you doesn’t need to showing up in every pages of the media. You got it, you are got it.

  • Diego

    A great artist!!! She has an amazing voice and good lyrics !!! Bolivia and south America love you Adele !!!

  • Irwin

    Well, her greatness didn’t win. Once again those clowns picked an obscure no-talent. They denied the award to Amy for ‘Back to Black’! And now some PJ Harvey got it instead of the once-in-a-lifetime ’21′. I listened to Harvey’s dissonant babble. What a joke! Just to be on the cutting edge, they deny a masterpiece to the best album in years.

  • rodabegonia

    She is so elegeant. I love her makeup!!

  • cancan

    Love, love, love Adele! Gorgeous AND Talented! That’s a pretty rare combination these days. She’s a true artist! :)

  • because I can

    I hope the first three comments were posted by the same person. I refuse to believe that three narrow minded shallow idiots in a row managed to hit this post before the people who actually recognize talent.

  • Stacy

    SO gorgeous and elegant. Classically beautiful face- perfect for the 40′s-era makeup.

  • peonies

    congratulation. she is such an effortless talented singer. love her music. saw her in concert-beautiful.

  • oy

    Britney Spears makes more money than Adele and yet the majority of the public thinks they have taste.

  • http://a.com ka simply amazing

    hahaha she soo average and katy looks better and looks young

  • Beck

    @Irwin: You sound like a moron. PJ is not obscure. Just because you don’t listen to music beyond the charts, doesn’t mean she’s obscure. Adele is good, but she’s not nothing on PJ. Now PJ, she crafted a masterpiece.

  • Beck

    Sorry, meant to say she’s got nothing on PJ.

  • lafamepoma

    Adele you deserve all the prices and forget this shit people who say you’re fat, Actually you’re beautiful in your way

  • Mary

    I love her and I love her music, I really do but she has to do something with her nails, they creep me out.

  • Heather

    @Mary: I was thinking the same thing! Wonderful singer & gorgeous though.

  • Paige

    Firstly, let me say I’m a huge fan of hers, but: people seem to forget that when you have a girl who has an extremely supportive mother, who then placed her in one of the best music schools in England to learn to sing and learn to write songs, along with being ‘young’ and basically waltzing into a record deal, you have the simple formula for success. She has said shes never had a job and that she has only sang. That isn’t to diminish her, it’s a fact. Meaning, her learning about songs and life comes from a school.

    Additionally, I personally don’t believe for a second that she is as young as claimed. She was a classmate of Amy Winehouse who was 27, making it highly improbable to be a mere 22 years old.

    It’s common knowledge that many artists and labels themselves change ages of artists to appear younger. Beyonce, Eminem, Nicki Manaj and many others have done this.

    Her voice is wildly wonderful though and I hope this means we’re nearing a crest of GOOD singers again.

    If you you believe she’s only 22 however, I have a bridge to sell you…
