Adele Is Being Honored by the Queen

That’s right, Adele‘s getting an MBE – a Member of the British Empire – from Queen Elizabeth. That’s a pretty high honor, though she won’t quite be able to call herself Dame Adele – that’s reserved for DBEs and GBEs. Still, it’s pretty great, and speaks to just how much Adele achieved before she seemingly dropped off the face of the earth to have babies and be a housewife (no shade there – totally down with that).

PJ Harvey is also getting an MBE, which is pretty excellent. I used to love me some PJ Harvey back in my university days. In case these royal goings on are up your street, maybe it’ll interest you to know that Andy Murray got an OBE from Prince William, and Aled Jones from Daybreak (a UK morning show) also got an MBE.

The awards will be given out at Buckingham Palace on Thursday. Now, how about Adele’s new album?

Adele Told Kelly Clarkson Not To Rush Pregnancy

Let’s call a spade a spade here and get real: Kelly Clarkson was pregnant when she got married and she knew it. In fact, I’d venture a guess that it’s the reason this wedding got pushed forward so quickly when not too long ago, she was “too busy” to think about her wedding. Still, I’m a modern lady, so that’s neither here nor there – I just wish people didn’t feel the need to hide this or prescribe to the idea that they need to get a shotgun wedding for it to be honourable – it was her fiancé, after all, and even if it wasn’t, so what?

In any case, Kelly has been rambling about how she wants a baby so badly and in time for Christmas and she’s got her wish now, but she did receive some advice a while back from fellow mom Adele, who told her to chill the fuck out and not be too obsessed with getting a baby in her.

From US Weekly:

“I ran into her at the Grammys last year, and I was like, ‘So, when is your next album coming out?’” Clarkson, 31, told Us Weekly in a recent interview. “She knows now I’m a superfan. She’s so sweet. She’s my big favorite to work with just because I’m a huge fan. She told me she was a big fan, too, and gave me some advice.”

So, what specific words of wisdom did the Grammy-winning Brit share with the pop star? “She said, ‘Girl, don’t have a baby ’cause everything else will go on the back burner. I’m so happy living in babyland,’” Clarkson recalled.

Yes, yes, babies are wonderful and life-changing and nothing else matters in life besides having them, we get it. It’s all vaguely annoying, but then again, you can’t fault people like Adele and Kelly who are legit stoked about bringing kids into the world and giving them lots of love (and money), I suppose.

Adele Did a Collaboration… with Wiz Khalifa?

If there are two names you don’t expect to see in the same sentence, they would be Wiz Khalifa and Adele. But here we are, putting those names together, because apparently they’ve collaborated for Wiz’s new album. This all apparently started because Adele complimented Wiz’s wife, Amber Rose, at this year’s Grammys. I’m not sure what that has to do with anything, but let’s just go with it.

Here’s what he told something called SKEE LIVE:

“She ran up on Amber. She was like ‘Amber! Amber!’ and told her how beautiful she looked.”

“Her people contacted some of my people when they found out we were working on the album and sent some ideas through, so we were able to knock some things out.”

Well, this should be interesting. I keep thinking of that Childish Gambino remix of ‘Rolling in the Deep’, which is making me think this might end up being really good, actually! I wish Adele would get work done on her OWN album, though. We’ve been waiting for that shit!
