Diva of the Future
I know I'm a bit late on this particular train, but just lately I have been a bit obsessed with British pop singer Adele (née Adele Adkins, but all the best divas just go by one name, don't they?) and especially her single Chasing Pavements. Today I was riding the bus home and I just put that song on repeat and listened to it over and over.
Here are a few things I like about Adele:
1) She has a freakin' amazing voice. It is almost impossible to believe that that voice is coming out of a a 20-year-old girl. What's even more amazing is that she was only 19 when her album was recorded.
2) She's not a screamer. Yes, I'm talking to you Céline Dion.
3) She writes good songs. Songs with actual melodies that you can't get out of your head and with words that matter.
4) She's a BBW; A big girl who isn't afraid to be beautiful.
In conclusion, Adele is her name, her album is called 19, she rocks, and you should go to iTunes and download her music right this minute.
