Soul singer Adele is planning to sail from her native Britain to America for shows next year (11) - so she can take her beloved dog with her.
The Chasing Pavements hitmaker is taking to the road to perform for fans and she's planning to set sail on the Queen Mary 2 for a week-long trip to reach the U.S. - all because she wants her pet pooch for company on the trek.
She tells Perez Hilton, "I've got a little weiner dog called Louis Armstrong. He's coming on tour with me when I start. I'm gonna sail to America and then fly internally with him on my lap. For my birthday I'm doing it - I'll be on the Queen Mary. Seven days, non-stop.
"I'm gonna take my mum with me and (a) couple of friends, make a little party of it."
