Adele: I'll Never Do Another Bond Theme Song


Adele Daniel Craig Shirley Bassey

Adele has vowed to never record another James Bond theme.

The 27-year-old singer isn't interested in penning music for another 007 adventure, despite the success of her track 'Skyfall' which was used for the opening credits of the 2012 blockbuster of the same name starring Daniel Craig.

Adele told The Sun newspaper: ''I would never do it again because I would never want to jinx it. After '21' I was like, why did I want to ruin things? Then I heard it was Bond 23 and I was 23, and it felt a little like fate.''

The Goldfinger singer was approached by the three-piece band's Ollie Baines earlier this year (15) with the suggestion of performing a festive track, and they have now recorded a joint version of The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire).

"I would love to have a Christmas number one," Welsh star Dame Shirley says, "Blake sang Moon River at my 70th birthday party, and then we met again at the reception of the charity Variety's 70th anniversary six months ago. Ollie mentioned singing a Christmas song together, and I said I've never done a Christmas song before."

After Dame Shirley indicated she was interested in the project, the band put a list of songs together for the diva to choose from, and she selected Nat King Cole's Christmas classic.

The Goldfinger singer was dismayed by the barely-there gowns sported by many female stars at the Met Gala in New York earlier this month (May15), and she is urging them to focus on their voice and music rather than how they dress.

According to British newspaper The Sun, she said, "It's like they're all in competition with each other for who can wear the skimpiest outfit. I mean, come on! When I saw the Met Ball the other night - and Beyonce's gown - I was like, 'Excuse me?'"

She adds, "In my day it was for the stage only, you didn't go out looking like that... I think you have to leave some things to the imagination.
