13Adele Welcomes Healthy Baby boy

Adele has given birth to a healthy baby boy, Us Weekly has confirmed. This was the first child for the 24-year-old singer, who had just shared the news of her pregnancy in June. She is officially a mum.

“I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together,” Adele wrote on her official website this summer. “I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx.”

 

0New music by Adele ”Skyfall” James Bond Theme

Adele‘s  ”Skyfall”  is for the newest theme song for the James Bond 007 movie. It was leaked before it’s Friday 0:07 London time due date.

“Skyfall is where we start/ A thousand miles and both apart/ When worlds collide and things are dark/ You may have my number/ You can take my name/ But you’ll never have my heart.”

Adele’s voice is amazing over this track!

“This is the end/ Hold your breath and count to 10/ Feel the earth move and then/ Feel my heart burst again.”

7Adele is Pregnant

 

 

 

The British singer announced that she is pregnant with her first child with boyfriend Simon Konecki who  owns 50 percent of life water.

Im delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx

Tracks like “Someone Like You” and the Grammy-winning “Rolling in the Deep” from her blockbuster album 21 dealt deeply and explicitly with the heart break from her last boyfriend.  Like Trey Songz sings in his Heart Attack song

In too deep, can’t think about giving it up
But I never knew love would feel like a heart attack
It’s killing me, swear I never cried so much
Cause I never knew love would hurt this fuckin’ bad
The worst pain that I ever had

But that pain helped her to sell 22 million records worldwide, win 6 Grammys  and meet Simon.

Congratulations Adele you’ve come full circle in life.

0Adele covers Vogue March Issue

 

 

The amazing Adele made a magnificent return to the Grammys by performing Rolling In the Deep after difficult throat surgery. She received a well deserved standing ovation from the crowd. Her performance was magical. You know we posted it! Check it out here

 

Now barely one day after her wonderful performance she effortlessly covers Vogue March issue a little thinner than we’re used to seeing her.  The six time Grammy winner gave a pretty lengthy interview to Vogue.  Read an excerpt

“I knew my voice was in trouble,” she says, “and obviously I cried a lot. But crying is really bad for your vocal cords, too!” When word spread in the insular music industry that Adele had throat problems, other artists’ managers began calling with the same piece of advice: Go see Steven Zeitels, M.D., in Boston, widely considered to be the preeminent throat surgeon in the world. (Indeed, he is currently working with Julie Andrews, trying to restore her pipes after a surgery by another doctor that diminished one of the great singing voices of all time.) Zeitels discovered a polyp on one of Adele’s vocal cords that would require surgery. “When I met him I loved him,” she says. “He made me feel safe.
