Adele belts it out while sitting around in different rooms of an empty home in her Target video commercials for her new album, 25. Adele is seen wearing a green sweater and black leggings as she gifts us with her flawless vocals, all before giving the camera an intense, if not downright eerie, gaze when some of these videos end. These commercials are brilliant and Adele is simply perfection!
I used to think that Adele was all hype. It’s not like I didn’t appreciate her music, but some people swear the woman is the Messiah and they need to relax. But I like her new material more than her older songs. I swear it’s like her voice has gotten even better. Her songs are just so rich and beautiful that you’re basically just a hater if you don’t give this woman props. You don’t have to be an Adele fan, but she has one of the best voices period and her lyrics aren’t bad either.
Simon Konecki is one of the luckiest men on earth. Makes you wonder if any of Adele’s ex-boyfriends regret losing the now mega-star?
It’s unfortunate that Adele and Taylor Swift are being compared. Taylor has accomplished so much, then Adele sweeps in and breaks record after record. There is room for the both of them, though, so I won’t compare the two. Both women made me want to actually go out and purchase their cds. I have Spotify so there’s no Swifty there and Adele takes months to put her records on the streaming service. I haven’t purchased either record, though. I used to download, but I digress. It’s incredible that Adele’s talent drives people to stores to purchase her music. But Adele is more than a gorgeous face, emotional performer and strong vocalist. Her personality is down to earth and endearing. Even if Adele were a diva, it arguably would not hurt her sales at all, but her personable energy makes you want to root for her and support her. Obvi.
Basically, what I’m tryna say is that on this Thanksgiving Day, I am thankful for Adele. It’s always inspiring watching anyone who is immensely talented share their gifts with the world. I find her inspirational and I believe that we should all take inspiration wherever we can get it.
