I’ve never known the British to be particularly interested in living the life of Fame, it seems like a much more an American dream. Perhaps [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Adele[/lastfm] is a testament to this ideal. She has no interest in fame and much of what comes with it.
[photogallerylink id=104427 align=left]She is amused with the pedestal American fans put her on, “American people think I am posh even though I am really not. They think I have a very British accent, as in: ‘Do you know the Queen?’ she continued, “I just laugh at them. In England I am thought of as common as muck.”
Well probably not quite muck, but things like her accent are most likely less intriguing to UK fans. She insists that she in inexperienced at being famous, and perhaps that is why she doesn’t want a part of the life, “I am pretty oblivious to everything. I’m not very in touch with the fame side of things; it doesn’t interest me at all.” She goes to lengths to not be apart of the branding culture that has become entertainment industry, claiming that she doesn’t even want endorsement deals.
In fact, little ol’ Adele goes sometimes goes by the pseudonym ‘Jenny’ in public as a way to stay anonymous, “My mum even calls me Jenny when we’re out in public because if she starts shouting Adele in a big department store people are going to look round and it gets awkward,” she told reporters.
We know Adele has a little bit of stage fright, so her shyness coming through in her personal life is no surprise to me. I just hope she gets the time and space she needs to heal up her voice, after canceling her US tour…again. I am also itching to hear a new album from the golden voice that is Adele.
I like her more and more everyday. Keep it up! I also strongly believe in Adele’s live show, so here’s a taste. “Turning Tables” LIVE by Adele.
