This whole time, our pronunciation has been off. When Adele listened to a taped question from a fan in London at a recent Q&A session in Los Angeles, she confessed that people have been pronouncing her name incorrectly for years.
She’s from Enfield, right? A question from Adele, who was referring to the North London district. She pronounced my name precisely correctly!
In fact, the name of the “Someone Like You” vocalist should be pronounced uh-dale, not ah-dell. The Grammy-winning singer, who was born in London, chatted with fans in advance of the premiere of the music video for “I Drink Wine.”
In addition to promoting her new album, “30,” due out on November 18, Adele is gearing up for the start of her Las Vegas residency on the same night. Tickets are no longer available and can be found on resale sites for thousands of dollars.
Adele conveyed the news to her fans in a heartbreaking social media post that she would have to postpone her residency, “Weekends with Adele,” earlier this year due to complications from COVID.
In an interview this summer, the 34-year-old revealed that having to cancel the shows was the “worst moment” of her career.
