Bonus Trivia

.

Contrary to popular belief, the titles of Adele's first three albums referred to her age when she was writing the songs, not when they were released; for example, she was 27 when 25 was released in 2015.

.

Born and raised in the working-class London area of Tottenham, Adele proudly sported a thick North London accent at odds with her glamorous, sophisticated look.

.

Adele's American breakthrough can be traced in part to U.S. politics. Adele was the musical guest on the October 2008 episode of "Saturday Night Live" that featured appearances from controversial Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who had been viciously skewered by returning cast member Tina Fey. The episode's high ratings spurred new interest in Adele's debut album.
