Adele's head and shoulders above the rest of the field in Sunday Times' rich list of young musicians
At 24 years old, Adele could definitely be said to be “doing alright for herself.” With enough awards on the mantelpiece to tumble the sturdiest of fire surrounds, Adele has also been announced as the richest young musician (under 30) in the UK, with an estimated fortune of around £30 million. Whilst you’re no doubt busily pondering what you would do with that much money, if your bank account was £30 million in the black, allow us to share the fortunes of some other UK pop stars.
Cheryl Cole is second, though there’s a significant gap between the two, with a fortune of £14 million, and Leona Lewis. The singer Katie Melua is worth £12 million, apparently, which must mean she’s been really savvy with her investments, surely, because we can’t remember the last time she experienced any serious chart success. Florence Welch seems to be onto a nice little earner, too, with £9 million in the bank. The One Direction lads have a tidy collective fortune of £25 million – that’s around £5 million each. Not bad when you’re still in your teens, eh.
Even Adele would be weeping with joy, however, if she had the fortunes of the UK’s real big guns at her disposal. Sir Paul McCartney and his partner Nancy Shevell have a combined fortune of a staggering £680 million. For the record, we reckon that Paul brought most of that to the relationship with him. Like, £679.9 million of it.

The fourth album from the young singer/songwriter comes as a production by William Orbit. If anything this album is slightly more edgy and even a little electronic.
The House has quite a theatrical start to it, and you begin to wonder what it would be like to be on her train of thought. As she sweetly sings 'I'd love to kill you as you eat'. Saying this, the album is quite hard to get into. It's like eating dry crackers. they don't taste bad, but they are a chore to get through; I was relieved when it got going. 'A Happy Place' is the first standout track and basically explains itself - a happy song with a fast rhythm, building up a tense pace like winding something up tight and releasing.
'God On The Drums, Devil On The Bass' proves Melua can produce a darker and heavier sound. A little more modern and creative perhaps than her last few albums, yet fans shouldn't worry. The ballads she is known for, the perfectly sweet vocals, and the slightly 'out there' topics are all still present. This is a well produced album that Melua fans will not be disappointed by, there was never any doubt that she was a talented artist.
It's not a statement album, but it's well executed and works well after a long day.
