Adele heard a fan correctly pronounce her name for the first time.
Adele revealed the truth during a recent Q&A with fans in Los Angeles as part of the promotion for her “I Drink Wine” music video. During the event, she thanked a fan for correctly calling her name.
Annie from London inquired about her songwriting before concluding:
“Cheers babe, love you.”
The 34-year-old singer shared:
“Where is she from, Enfield or something? Love that. She said my name perfectly!”
Adele added that the moderator also asked her how to pronounce her name correctly before the Q&A began. Adele’s name, it turns out, should be pronounced “uh-dale” rather than “ah-dell.”
She stated that the emphasis should be on the second syllable.
Aside from revealing her correct name pronunciation, the “Chasing Pavements” hitmaker also discussed whether she is interested in becoming an EGOT after winning an Emmy, an Oscar, and several Grammys. That leaves her in need of a Tony to complete her status.
She went on:
“I don’t think I’ve seen enough [Broadway] as a grown-up to know if I would want to do it. I was wondering, ‘Do I just move the show from Vegas to Broadway and win the Tony?’ I actually prefer the sound of an EGO than an EGOT.”
When a singer performs on Broadway, they can win a Tony Award. Adele, for her part, revealed that she almost won the award when she considered playing Rose in “Gypsy.” It is based on Gypsy’s memoirs from 1957. Lee, Rose
She already has 15 Grammy Awards as of this writing. She also won an Academy Award for her performance in the James Bond theme song “Skyfall.”
Last month, she made a huge step forward when she won an Emmy for Best Outstanding Variety Special for her “One Night Only” concert special, which aired on CBS.
Although she has what it takes to be on Broadway, her schedule prevents her from doing so. Bette Midler, who played Rose in the 1993 television adaptation of “Gypsy,” allegedly advised her.
Because of her hectic schedule, the actress informed her that she would be unable to work on it. Adele also admitted that she is lazy and lacks the stamina for such work.
However, she does not close the door if another opportunity presents itself.
