Why We Love Adele

Kid #2, the 15 year old boy, walked into the living room tonight where me and my daughter were camped out watching the Grammy Awards.

"What's so special about Adele?" he asked as we yelled at him to be quiet and get out of in front of the TV!

Are you kidding me? What is there not to love about this woman?
  1. Her boyfriend dumps her and instead of keying his car, she channels all that energy into a multi-Grammy winning album.
  2. Chanel designer and all around jackhole Karl Lagerfeld calls Adele fat in the international media and she responds by saying, "I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that." 
  3. Although I bet in private she called him a 'bloody asshole'.
  4. After undergoing career-threatening surgery to remove a growth on her vocal chord, she stood on stage at the Grammy's and belted it out to a standing ovation.
  5. The girl can sing a tune!
  6. When she won the Grammy for Album of the Year she gave a shout out to her mom "Momma, your girl did good!"
  7. She's humble.
  8. I think she's someone that could join me and my girlfriends for an afternoon at Starbucks and fit right in with us common folk.
  9. She's only 23 years old. What had you accomplished at 23? Yeah, me neither.
  10. For no other reason than the girl can sing!


  1. The first time I heard her voice, I thought this is what the world needs......when I saw her, I was thrilled to see a woman and not some old man's fantasy.

  2. Excellent performance. I like this kinds of pursuance.Excellent video.I really enjoyed it.
