What a delightful, charming young woman! I've loved Adele's music for a while now (her SNL performance was not her introduction to all Americans), but I had no idea about Adele as a person. I guess after being burned by Amy Winehouse, I didn't want to know anything more than how she sounded when she sang. Keep up the great work Adele, and great job keeping your head on straight!

I. Love. Her.

I am more than twice Adele's age and I'm in awe. There are a lot of good, young women making some good music out there, but Adele is in a whole other category. She is amazing and I listen to her all the time. I love the fact that she's so young 'cause it means there's that much more great music that will be coming out of her for a long time.

This may not sound very friendly, but when I hang out, play and sing with my musician friends, I am astonished at how today's best nonclassical music artists know absolutely nothing about anything, apart from music - this is a sad set of values to present to the youth of the world who so idolize them. The old dead guy who wrote the book that you don't want to read in school, Adele, is someone you need to know.

Sounds to me like she has the same accent as Amy Winehouse. Are they from the same place?
