This is Adele, and this is her DELIGHTFUL DELIGHTS.
She’s in Vegas thanks to her massive US tour. But her Las Vegas fun is coming to an end, as the 29-year-old British singer-songwriter’s TGI Fridays work tour is schedule to end at midnight GMT on 29 March.
Adele has performed across the globe, while pushing her fifth studio album – 25 – past the 10 million sales mark. And despite the fact that all five of her albums are number one or at least in the top 40 in the UK, the ‘Hello’ singer has received some controversial feedback.
She’s also earned an Oscar – although she was paid less than her co-star, Jeremy Renner.
The ‘Songbird’ penned the lyrics of the “despised and controversial” hit “Rolling in the Deep” and ‘Skyfall’, which was honoured with a Golden Globe and two Academy Awards last year. And Adele is being depicted as a self-centred princess in one movie.
It seems like she’s owning her cultural input. To be fair, she’s worked tirelessly to be seen in front of the camera, earning an estimated $68 million in 2015 alone.
Her five-year album cycle is worth an estimated $285 million, according to Statista, and her tour is currently worth more than $100 million.
Her latest album 25, launched on 25 February 2015, is the UK’s most successful and broke the Billboard 200 record for most one-week sales of an album.
And it’s quite likely that Adele is going to rake in even more money by the end of March, as she continues to tour across the US. Fans have already filed T-shirts with her face on them and downloaded her music for free so they can buy the final shows tickets. She’s still available to buy.
Plus, she’s sharing her outfits on social media and fans couldn’t be more thrilled. Adele has announced that she is on a “lighter” rider than usual, opting for anything – from plain soft drinks to nuts, to baby food, to shoes.
Adele’s spontaneous and free-spirited ways are appreciated, even by people who might be turned off by her singing voice or the fact that the album was accused of biting Beyonce’s major “feminist” anthem “Formation”. Fans flock to Adele’s alter ego, which is particularly bizarre. It isn’t remotely English but based in Sydney, Australia.
It’s hard to doubt that this is a voice we should all listen to. We are thankful for that.
Stay tuned for more. For now we’ll wait until 19 March for her next show.
