Suddenly, Adele fans are rolling in the deep cuts.
Divas were a rock-music staple long before Grammy-winning British goddess Adele was even born. And as history has told us time and time again, some of the finest diva moments happen when the songstress is singing
Adele has topped The Sunday Times' annual Rich List for musicians aged 30 and under in Britain and Ireland, thanks to an estimated worth of $46 million, the British paper announced today (April 11). Florence Welch and Lily Allen also made the top ten. U2 and Chris Martin, meanwhile, have made strong showings on the Times' Rich List for musicians over the age of 30, with Bono and co. taking third place, right behind Paul McCartney and composer Andew Lloyd Webber.
It turns out those rumors that Adele would be playing Michelle Obama's 50th birthday party next year were nothing more than that: rumors. A White House spokesperson has denied claims the British songbird and Super Bowl halftime star Beyonce had been lined up to perform at Obama's bash next January, blaming the whole fiasco on a British newspaper. “This is 100% false,” the spokesperson said, speaking directly of a report that appeared in NBC News. “It was fabricated by a British tabloid.”
Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday is coming up next January, and the First Lady reportedly wants Adele and Beyonce to perform at the festivities. The British songstress has happily accepted the offer, a source tells the Daily Mail, and she's even agreed to play the highly anticipated show free of charge.
