Sure, why not? Adele apparently installed bulletproof glass in her £5 million London home in order to “protect her family“, apparently. This, according to The Daily Mail, that bastion of fine journalism that can always be counted on for the truest and most important news stories out there.
Even though the house is in a pretty richy rich neighbourhood where other high rollers live, as well, no doubt, Adele thinks they all – herself, boyfriend Simon Konecki and son Angelo – need extra security, hence the bulletproof windows. Find me a person who wants to shoot Adele, though. Well, actually, don’t – people are fucking crazy.
”She moved in a couple of months ago.
“She has renovated the whole place and has even installed bulletproof windows. The property has four bedrooms.”

Adele is often seen in black dresses, usually with an armful of awards. Even if she’s at an Arby’s I’m sure she’d somehow win 6 awards. Her stylist gave up a bunch of Adele’s style and beauty secrets, including the need for Spanx. From Sunday Mirror via Daily Mail:
She always wears Spanx on the red carpet. Good underwear is really important, it smoothes you out.
Adele always wants to wear black because she loves Johnny Cash and he wore black. She also loves June Carter Cash because she and Johnny were so much in love and they had this wonderful marriage.
Sometimes she’ll look at herself in the mirror and say, “Oh I look like her!”
Uh…I don’t really see it?
Well maybe with the hair? Definitely the hair and makeup.
Anyway, just because Adele wears Spanx does not mean that she feels any pressure to be skinny.
Adele is really OK with how she looks. I don’t think she ever lacked confidence. She doesn’t have that insecurity that a lot of other people I dress have.
Okay, cool. Enjoy these photos of Adele dressed as an Italian widow.

Oh, snap! You know you’ve arrived when Madame Tussauds wants to do a waxwork of you. That’s exactly what’s happened to Adele, who’s currently getting the sculpting treatment two times over – one for the London museum, and one for the Dutch outpost. Both will be available in July, according to The Daily Express.
She’ll join stars like Madonna and Kylie Minogue, both of whom have their own waxworks that I would never stand next to for fear of looking like Hagrid from Harry Potter in comparison. They’re pretty short ladies, if you didn’t know.
I guess this is meant to hold us over until her new album is finished next year.

Adele‘s been a busy lady this past year. Between giving birth to a son and exchanging cooking tips with Barbra Streisand, there’s not really been any time for music… until now! According to The Mirror, Adele started recording the follow-up to her massively successful sophomore album 21 on Monday and it’s due for release in the middle of 2014. Ohhhh, snap!
“Adele is currently in a recording studio in London and it’s in lockdown mode for the next few weeks.
“Four tracks are finished in terms of writing and she’s now laying down preliminary vocals with backing music and singers.
“The rest of the record will be done in LA. The feel is very much Adele going back to her roots, with some modern jazz and a couple of classic old songs.”
Hmm, I just hope it doesn’t suck like so many people’s albums do once they have kids. I’m not sure what’s up with that phenomenon but it happens SO often with female singers, I find.
Whatever, Adele’s a classic, so for now we’ll just assume it’s going to be amazing.

Adele and Barbra Streisand apparently struck up a friendship earlier this year (of course they did) when Adele went ’round Barbra’s house in Los Angeles for dinner. Since Barbra has an insane personal chef (of course she does) who makes healthy meals that taste as good as restaurant quality, apparently, she and Adele have kept in touch and have been exchanging cooking tips. Sure, why not?
From The Sun:
The pair hit it off immediately and have since stayed in contact, swapping recipe ideas and tips by phone and email on a weekly basis.
Barbra has told pals she reckons the friendship could lead to the pair duetting, and that she already has some song ideas.
That would guarantee a fortune from a worldwide hit.
A source said: “Adele has got heavily into her cooking during her break from music to have her son and Barbra has always been fanatical about what goes into her food.
“They have been swapping notes about meals ever since they met.
“Adele finds her company very reassuring because she has been through the whole global fame thing and knows exactly what it’s like.”

Adele has made an assload of money in the past few years, and good on her – she earned it! Still, the downside of being filthy rich is that as soon as you’ve got money, people crawl out of the woodwork like termites with their hands out, expecting something for free. Not so for Adele’s family, though, who – after she offered to buy them all nice apartments in London – said thanks but no thanks to a handout, preferring instead to provide for themselves.
From The Daily Star:
Our source revealed: “Adele wanted to spread her happiness and success through the family, but they politely declined the extremely generous offer.”
She offered to buy her seven first cousins smart flats in London close to where they all grew up. Adele’s mum has two sisters, who have three and four children each, all of whom spent every day of their childhood with Adele.
Our source added: “Adele loves her family, and is close to her aunties, uncles and cousins. They’re proud of her success, but work very hard and are self-sufficient.”
Adele’s auntie Anita Atkins, her mum’s older sister, told us: “We all lead our own lives, we’re self-sufficient and don’t need her to help out.
“We all still live within spitting distance of each other and phone each other most days.”
Well, good on them. I’m sure she still buys them all little shit and treats them to stuff here and there, which is great – and it wouldn’t even be an issue if some of them did accept her help – it’s just awesome that it’s not simply expected. Anyway, Adele needs her money if she’s going to expand that game room of hers, so all’s well that ends well.
