Adele Unveils Proper Pronunciation for her Famous Name

The 34 year old sensation made it clear about her name in a recent interview with some fans in Los Angeles as she was celebrating promoting her new music video for her song “I Drink Wine.”


A fan had said her name perfectly while referring to her in a Q&A as she was asked a question about songwriting. Apparently, the correct pronunciation is “uh-dale” and not “ah-dell.”

She pointed it out in the Q&A then moved on to answer the women’s question.
In the same Q&A, the songwriter also shared the answer to whether or not she is interested in completing the elusive pursuit of an EGOT, as she has already won an Emmy along with an Oscar and multiple Grammy’s.

“I can’t lie guys, I’m not a massive Broadway fan,” she said. “I know, I know. I’m talking about musicals though because I’ve been seeing a couple of plays but I
don’t think I’ve seen enough.”

She shared as though she can be able to possible swing playing Rose in Gypsy. It stood out to her as she saw a production of the musical made by Arthur Laurents.

She shared, “I did love the role of the mum in it. She has a song when she was like, ‘I wanted to do all of this’ and she’s jealous of her own daughter and she’s really caught up about it,” she said. “At one bit, she was just a b—h in it, which I could nail.”

Weekends with Adele

Adele has recently been prepared to kick off her “Weekends with Adele” residency at Caesar’s Palace Colosseum later this month which will go through March 2023.

She has admitted also that she has considered transforming her show into something that could possibly put her in the place of winning a Tony award.


She states, “I don’t think I’ve seen enough [Broadway] as a grown-up to know if I would want to do it. I was wondering, ‘Do I just move the show from Vegas to Broadway and win the Tony?’ I actually prefer the sound of an EGO than an EGOT,” Adele said at the event. “EGO is fun. But never say never. If I move to New York, I get bored, I’ll be on that stage in a hot second.”
