Hello, update: Turns out people have been saying Adele’s name wrong, something she casually revealed during a Q&A with fans to celebrate her “I Drink Wine” video. The moment went down when Adele was asked a question by “Annie from London,” who pronounced her name correctly.
Adele immediately shouted out the correct pronunciation, saying, “Where’s she from Enfield or something? Love that. She said my name perfectly.” She then noted that host Benito Skinner “came and asked me how I say my name and I was like ah-dale, and she was like ah-dale.”
Still confused? Here’s the exact moment so you can hear the way Adele prefers her name to be pronounced:
FYI, elsewhere in the interview, Adele was asked what she’s been up to lately, and her answer was extremely relatable: “I’ve been buying a lot of clothes—online shopping I ‘m not a hoarder, I just like to buy a lot of things, ’cause I don’t really do very much.”
She went on to mention her boyfriend Rich Paul, saying (via People), “I’d say that and my dogs, and then making special time for Rich and stuff like that. I mean, the season just started, and believe me, I ‘m actually a really big basketball fan. Thank God. So, I’ve also been doing that.”
Also, while we’re here, Adele is looking for a hobby if anyone has suggestions. As she put it, “I’d like to start learning how to sketch a bit better at some point. But it’s funny, ’cause I always say to my friends, ‘I need a hobby.’ ‘Cause my hobby is singing, but it’s also my job now, so it kind of takes that thing I do for myself away from it.”
Adele revealed that people have been mispronouncing her name incorrectly this entire time—here’s how you actually say it.
