Frances Was Nervous Working With Greg Kurstin


Adele Sir Paul McCartney

Frances found it nerve-wracking going into the studio with Adele's producer Greg Kurstin.

The 24-year-old rising star - whose real name is Sophie Frances Cooke - jumped straight into working the renowned producer shortly after he spent time with the 28-year-old songstress getting her chart-topping single 'Hello' together.

The flame-haired beauty, who had hits 'Gravity' and 'Don't Worry About Me', was aware of how prestigious the 47-year-old songwriter is and so she decided to go in with an idea in mind for her track.

David Bowie Adele Drake

David Bowie has been named as the most popular recording artist of 2016, beating the multi-million selling likes of Adele and Drake, according to the British Phonographic Industry (BPI).

Following the shocking news of the music icon’s death, which broke in early January 2016, the official body governing the music industry in Britain reports that 1.6 million Bowie albums were either bought or streamed by British listeners in the 12 months of last year, more than any other single artist.

The rediscovery of Bowie’s massive back catalogue, combined with his final album Blackstar that was released just two days before his passing, meant that his sales figures were higher than anybody else.

Adele Confirms She's "Married Now" To Simon Konecki


Adele

After months of speculation, Adele has finally confirmed that she has indeed married her partner of several year, Simon Konecki.

The British songstress, 28, has achieved record-beating global sales over the last seven years with her songs of heartbreak and broken relationships.

Over the Christmas period, she and Konecki, who share four year old son Angelo, were spotted out and about in Los Angeles wearing what fans took to be gold wedding bands on their fingers. In February, at the 2017 Grammys, she then thanked her “husband” in one of her acceptance speeches, leading many to speculate that she had officially tied the knot with her fiancé.

Adele's Changing Fashion Style


Adele

It's quite remarkable how much Adele's fashion choices have change over the years. She's gone from uber casual to uber chic over a period of eight years. Thick knits, leggings and loose fits were her go-to wardrobe staples, but now she's into a more mature, glamorous approach to dressing.

Adele Bruno Mars

Nearing the end of a massively successful and lucrative tour supporting a similarly massive and lucrative album, Adele has the whole world in the palm of her hand at the moment.

However, one person didn’t quite think she was all she was cracked up to be – at least on first impression. Bruno Mars recalled that, when he worked with her while co-writing the song ‘All I Ask’ for her album 25, she was a “diva” – and not in a good way!

The 61st Ivor Novello Awards took place yesterday (May 19th 2016) in London and honoured several classic and contemporary artists from Adele to Simple Minds.

Once again, it is presented by the British Academy Of Songwriters Composers & Authors (BASCA).

Simple MindsSimple Minds won Outstanding Song Collection

Unsurprisingly, Adele landed Songwriter of the Year after the success of '25' and her hit single 'Hello'. James Bay was another predictable success, the PRS Most Performed Work awarded for his UK number two single 'Hold Back The River'. Ed Sheeran's protege Jamie Lawson won Best Song Musically and Lyrically for 'Wasn't Expecting That', beating Sheeran himself whose track 'Bloodstream' with Rudimental was also up for nomination.

Adele Ed Sheeran Taylor Swift Justin Bieber Sam Smith One Direction Coldplay Meghan Trainor The Weeknd

Confirming what we essentially already knew, Adele’s global domination is total, with the news that her latest album 25 outsold the rest of the top five bestsellers around the world put together in 2015.

The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), a global body representing the music industry, reports that her long-awaited third album sold 17.4 million units in 2015, despite only coming out in late November. As a result, the organisation concludes that Adele has helped to reverse “two decades of almost uninterrupted decline” in the music business.

Stephen Fry Calls Little Mix's Music "Horrible"; Claims To Have "Heard Of" Adele


Stephen Fry Little Mix Adele

Stephen Fry has condemned the state of modern pop music in a new interview, claiming Little Mix to be “horrible” and “toxic” before saying that he’s “not interested” in the state of the pop charts in 2015.

The popular broadcaster and comic actor reviewed a selection of singles released by various artists in 2015 for BBC’s Newsbeat. However, it turns out that Fry isn’t that clued-up on modern pop music, claiming to have “heard of” Adele but very little else.

He saved his most savage criticisms for Little Mix, the 2011 winners of ‘The X Factor’, reacting to their recent single ‘Love Me Like You’ by calling it “horrible! It's just bubblegum pop,” he added.

Forget Adele V Tom Waits, Here's 13 Songs We've Definitely Heard Before


Adele Bruno Mars Oasis

Adele's new song 'Hello' has had the internet going crazy these past few weeks; people are excited for the release of her upcoming comeback album '25' and thus have this across-the-board number one on repeat. However, as with a lot of hit tracks, it hasn't been without its criticism and in this case people are commenting on the remarkable similarity to a Californian storyteller we all know and love.

AdeleAdele waves 'Hello' to Tom Waits with new single

The Tom Waits comparison has, in itself, been critized; but whatever people say, the fact can't be ignored that the lyrics to 'Hello' do bare remarkable parallels with Waits' 1973 song 'Martha'. Both dictate a phonecall to a long lost lover, reminiscing about their early days and reflecting on their young, foolish selves. It's not exactly a copy, merely a divine inspiration.

Adele Admits She's Banned From Her Own Twitter Account For Drunk-Tweeting


Adele Graham Norton

She’s probably the most powerful woman in pop music at the moment, with her third album just a fortnight away from release, but Adele has hilariously revealed that she’s not allowed to send her own tweets because she used to post on Twitter while drunk.

The 27 year old superstar has over 24 million followers on the social networking site, but admitted that everything she wants to tweet now has to be checked over by two people from her management company and “signed off”, after she nearly landed herself in hot water in the past by tweeting after a few drinks. We’ve all been there.
