AMP Music Minute: Adele Speaks About Estranged Father, Shakira Goes Diamond-Signs With Roc Nation And Katy Perry Selling New York Home

[photogallerylink id=146387 align=right] Adele has been making headlines for a lot of positive news lately. She swept her categories at this year’s Grammy Awards, she has a huge new house in the UK, and she is happily in a relationship with a man she says she loves. So what could be rocking the quaint little world that Adele’s record breaking album, 21, built?

Well, just her estranged father.

Adele spoke candidly with Vogue magazine about her father who abandoned the songbird and her mum when she was just three-years-old. Her father, Mark Evans, hadn’t said much to Adele by the time she was on the cusp of record-shattering success, but once she got there he was more than happy to sell her story to the highest bidder.

“I was actually ready to start trying to have a relationship with him again. He’s f**king blown it. He will never hear from me again,” Adele told Vogue, adding that it’s not the press that bothered her, but the fact that he added fuel to the fire.“Because there is nothing that would upset me more than my dad being bribed by the press. It’s like, ‘Just let them run it, then. Don’t you give them ammunition.'”

But she didn’t stop there, the topic had Adele fuming and by the end she had said a mouthful! “It makes me angry! To come back after ten years and be like, ‘Maybe her problem with men comes down to me.’ It’s like, ‘F**k off! How dare you comment on my life?’ It makes my blood boil.”

Also, and rightfully so, she’s upset that instead of coming to her with his thoughts and feelings about her career and history with men, he told them to a tabloid. “There’s consequences other than just getting a bit of f**king money that lasts you half a year. It blows my mind,” she said. “‘I love her so much.’ Really? Why are you telling me that through a newspaper?” she ranted.

But if they ever do meet again, trust, you will hear about it.

“If I ever see him, I will spit in his face.”

Rawr!

Shakira, Shakira! has teamed up with one of the biggest companies in music: Roc Nation. Well, at least the management firm. Still no word on whether or not she’s been signed to the label, but she is being represented by the Roc and that’s not too shabby at all!

[photogallerylink id=71223 align=left] While the reasoning behind such a merger isn’t necessarily crystal clear, you have to understand that Jay-Z and company are drawn to not only talent but the mastering of  talents. And in her decades long career, Shakira has taken over a piece of the world. She’s a world renowned superstar that has two Grammys, six Latin Grammys and has sold about 60 million records (no big deal). Oh yeah, and she has that little star on the Walk of Fame right here in Hollywood. Talk about being in the company of stardom!

AMP will keep you up-to-date on any updates from the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer. Hopefully she can unleash another “She-Wolf” on us someday soon. Maybe with Jay in her corner, soon will be sooner, rather than later…

 [photogallerylink id=130007 align=right] The drama between Russell Brand and Katy Perry since their split has been pretty nonexistent. In fact, if there were awards for amicable divorces, these two would win hands down! One of the last loose ends of their relationship was a New York City condo that the two likely spent some time in together, seeing as Katy bought it a month before their wedding. But as Katy is clearly trying to move on, she’s decided to sell the pad and has listed it with realtors.

The Tribeca home is going for $2.75 million, which is exactly what she paid for it, but the most interesting thing about this place is not the price. It’s the fact that ex-hubby, Brand, could have taken the 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom duplex as well as millions of dollars from Katy when they split due to California divorce laws, but he took the high road and left with what he came with. 

In today’s “Money To Blow” mindset, especially amongst young and made entertainers this type of thing just seems unheard of! We have to applaud both parties on their maturity and resolve through their trying times. This had the potential to be so nasty, like most break-ups, but even though there were no children involved in their relationship, they kept it clean.
