Adele Reportedly $35 million For Year-Long Las Vegas Residency!

Posted on November 16th, 2017 at 6:36 am by    

Is Adele Nevada bound?

The superstar has reportedly been offered $35 million for a year-long residency at a hotel in Las Vegas.

The huge sum has reportedly been offered by luxury Vegas hotel The Wynn, who are vying to secure the singer for a year-long residency which works out at an eye-watering $500,000 per show.

“The days of entertainers coming to retire at Vegas are a thing of the past”, a source told The Sun.

“In the last few years, we have seen massive stars performing on the strip and every major hotel wants to say they have the biggest star as their resident. Caesars Palace had Mariah Carey, Planet Hollywood has Britney Spears, and we want Adele.

“Even at half a million dollars a show we are confident we would make a healthy return.”

The singer, who was previously linked to a residency in 2015, was also forced to cancel her final two gigs at Wembley Stadium in July after damaging her vocal chords. 

A silver screen career for Adele could also be on the horizon, after she was recently linked to the role of Nancy Sykes in a forthcoming adaptation of iconic musical Oliver

Last month, it was claimed that the singer was in talks with West End impresario Sir Cameron Mackintosh about the prospect of playing Nancy, the girlfriend of nefarious villain Bill Sykes in the musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’s classic novel.

Oo-er… Now that, I would LOVE to see happen!

NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN … Daniel Craig WILL Return as James Bond!

Posted on July 26th, 2017 at 7:09 am by    

He said he would rather slash his wrist than play James Bond a fifth time.  I thought that was a little extreme… But still, it’s SWOON-TIME folks … Daniel Craig will play Bond in at least one more film, which will be released in November 2019. Oo-er!

Back in September, reports suggested Daniel was on the verge of signing up as 007 again and now the New York Times has claimed Craig will be back in at least one more Bond film.

He will reportedly reprise his role in late 2019 when the next film in the franchise hits cinemas.

News that Craig is set to sign on the dotted line for a fifth time comes after a number of high-profile Brits were tipped to replace him.

A source previously told the Sunday Mirror: “It’s taken time but Daniel has come round and the strong consensus in the Bond offices is that Mr Craig is 007 again.”

Meanwhile Bond producer Barbara Broccoli is just as determined to get Skyfall singer Adele – who is said to be returning to live in the UK after growing homesick in America – back to record a second Bond theme tune.

The song from the 2012 movie was the first Bond theme tune to win at the Brits and Grammy Awards, as well as the Golden Globes.

The source, who is close to the “Bond25” project, added: “Craig and Adele together are the winning team, the ultimate choice, the money spinners.

“[Adele is] more of an unknown quantity but loved being part of Bond, so the signs are positive.”

The insider also claimed Daniel’s wife, actress Rachel Weisz, is “on board with the decision” for him to return as 007, even if it means spending a year away from home filming.

Adele and Celine Dion Plan Secret Duet Together?

Posted on June 21st, 2017 at 7:21 am by    

Two of the pop world’s biggest pop superstars may be teaming up to duet together – and if true, I cannot wait. 

The rumor currently swirling is that Celine Dion has reportedly met up with Adele while in London for her UK tour to discuss the possibility of singing together. Oo-er!

Can you imagine?

Would they begin with Hello? Maybe follow with That’s The Way It Is? End with Someone Like You before breaking our hearts again with My Heart Will Go On?

Pop fans may errupt with excitment… I know I would!

‘Adele made the trip to meet her idol and the music legends both embraced in a private room backstage before the gig and told each other how much they loved each other,’ a source has revealed of the moments before Dion took the O2 Arena stage on Tuesday night.

However the source added that although the conversation was friendly, Adele would be too terrified of singing live with Dion to make the moment come true.

Speaking to The Sun, the insider added: ‘Adele said she would love to sing with her on stage at some point but she would be too scared.’

Later on stage, performing to a sold out crowd, Dion spoke to Adele, who was sat in the crowds: ‘I want to move here. If I do, do you think if I move here I can meet Adele and you can help fix this for me.’

The source also claimed that the twosome discussed teaming up during their backstage meet up, just months after Adele presented Dion with an award at the 2017 Grammys.

The latest speculation comes shortly after Celine admitted during an appearance on British TV show Lorraine earlier this year that she wants to do a duet with the singer and even challenged her to a team-up.

‘I was wondering if you can sing a song with me. Anywhere, any time,’ Celine told Adele through the TV.

Luke Evans Singing in the Shower with “Adele”?!?! Er, Sort of…

Posted on March 16th, 2017 at 8:20 am by    

And still on the subject of Beauty and the Beast… One of its stars, British actor Luke Evans made his debut on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday—and judging by the audience’s reaction, he’s bound to be back before long. Oo-er!

“Whenever it’s your first time on the show,” Ellen told the latest Disney movie star, “we have to show shirtless photos.”

As she shared a slew of sexy shots, the Evans said, “Oh, no! Don’t embarrass me. Can we just stop? OK! OK! I post a lot of [selfies]. You’ve just ruined it now. I’ll never post another one.”

And disappoint his fans?

“This is a very female-heavy audience,” Evans admitted. “It worked out quite well.”

DeGeneres then showed a video of the shirtless actor singing Adele in his living room. “I’m the biggest fan of Adele,” Evans explained. 

“My mum is on the little iPad on the screen, if you see there, and I’m singing. I didn’t realize when I zoomed in it was Ellentube I was watching Adele on. And this is me belting out ‘When We Were Young.’ 

The Welsh actor is no stranger to singing, previously showing off his vocals on stage and now performing as part of his role as villain Gaston in Disney’s new big screen adaptation added:

“This is what I do on a Sunday morning, guys: learn Adele tracks. I FaceTime my mum when I learn a new song; she loves that. She tells me whether I should just drop it then or maybe learn it a little better. Now I sing it all the time.” 

The Ellen Show is known for making dreams come true, and Evans was hoping that would be the case Monday. “Is this where Adele comes out behind me?” he asked, to which DeGeneres replied, “If only!” Because, as Evans explained, “I know what happens on this show.”

“It’s a shame you know what happens,” DeGeneres added, “’cause she’s not here.”

Instead, DeGeneres gave Evans a shower curtain that featured a photo of Adele in concert on one side and a shirtless cutout for the actor to stick his head through on the other side. “His physique is way better than mine,” Evans joked before singing a bit of When We Were Young.

My verdict? Classic telly!

Rolling in the Dosh… Adele Made $600k a Night’ On Her World Tour!

Posted on February 16th, 2017 at 7:43 am by    

Singer Adele is seriously ‘Rolling in the Dosh’ according to reports that state she was raking it in during her sold-out world tour last year after she performed 107 dates across Europe and America between February and December. Oo-er!

This places the Hello‘ songstress among a group of the most wealthiest musicians in the world including icons like MadonnaBruce SpringsteenU2 and The Rolling Stones after making a whopping $500,000 every night, according to new accounts filed by her firm Remedy Touring, of which she is the sole director.

The Sun reports that the 28-year-old British star’s company made a profit of $13.5 million between October 2015 and April 2016. 

“Given this was Adele’s first ever world tour her earnings really are incredible,” a source said.

“If you break it down then she was making more than half a million every single night. The latest accounts just go up until April, when she was only a few months into the tour, which make it all the more astounding.

“Adele was selling out arena after arena every night so her income would definitely have shot up at the same rate throughout the rest of the year.”

Meanwhile, it’s been claimed that the star has decided to take a lengthy break from the music industry when she wraps up her Adele Live tour later this year.

The superstar is reportedly planning to have another child with her husband Simon Konecki, 42, the father of her four-year-old son Angelo.

The couple – who have been together for five years – got engaged in October during Adele’s world tour and she revealed at the Grammy Awards that they had secretly wed, when she referred to Simon as her “husband”, during her acceptance speech for Album of the Year.

Adele said: “Grammys, I appreciate it, the Academy, I love you, my manager, my husband and my son – you’re the only reason I do it.”

Earlier this week Adele beat Beyoncé to win five Grammys and about to embark on an 11-date tour of Australia later this month, starting in Perth on February 28.

So I guess there will be more of that ‘dosh’ rolling in then!

Chasing Sunshine … Adele Spotted Doing Her Own Shopping in LA!

Posted on November 30th, 2016 at 7:39 am by    

Chasing sunshine? Adele seems to be making LA her new home these days and appears to settling in rather nicely!

The British singer is thought to be worth over $100 million, but still likes to do her own grocery shopping and came out of Bristol Farms last Sunday laden with food. 

Still, the star looked fresh faced and without a care in the world when she was spotted dressed down and make-up free doing the big family shop in Tinseltown.

Well, at least it was Bristol Farms, I say!

When she’s off stage, Adele likes to stay make up free to show off her glowing complexion.

She kept on some oversized sunglasses to give her a sense of anonymity but when you’re one of the most famous women on the planet you can’t go anywhere without being recognised.

The 28-year-old mom kept her outfit chic but comfortable, covering up in a patterned maxi dress and wearing nude ballet pumps.

It seems she was preparing a feast for her family as she left the store with a packed trolley – possibly for a late Thanksgiving meal with her fiancé Simon Konecki and their three-year-old son Angelo.

Adele recently opened up about expanding her family with Simon once her schedule quietens down in 2017.

Closing the US leg of her world in Phoenix, Adele told the crowd: “Give it up for me – I did it!

“I’ll see you on the other side. I’m going to have another baby!”

Following the gig, Adele shared an adorable picture of a welcome home banner her son Angelo had made with Simon.

She’s now taking a break before heading to Australia and New Zealand for the final leg of her world tour.

Adele Dedicates NYC Show to Brangelina Amid Divorce!

Posted on September 21st, 2016 at 8:38 am by    

Forget a breakup playlist—Adele just offered Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie a full-fledged concert.

The woman behind emotional hits like “Set Fire to the Rain,” “Someone Like You” and “Don’t You Remember” put on a show at New York City’s Madison Square Garden that doubled as a live ode to Brangelina.

The longtime celebrity couple shocked the showbiz world earlier this week when news broke of Jolie’s filing for divorce. The Oscar winner requested joint legal custody, but sole physical custody of the couple’s six children. According to the legal documents, she also requested that Pitt be granted visitation rights.

As Tuesday night’s concert attendees reported on Twitter, the British songstress (who has recently overcome serious stage fright) announced to the crowd that she was dedicating the show to the “elephant in the room,” calling the split the “end of an era.”

She addressed the crowd with, “are you up for a good time?” before explaining, “Well, you’ve come the wrong place… It’s two hours of misery. Two hours of egotistical songs about moi and my ex-boyfriends.”

She told the packed stadium, “I’m dedicating this show tonight to them,” In between songs she added, “I don’t know them personally, but it feels like the end of an era,” she said to the crowd. “I was shocked when I woke up this morning.”

The dedicated festivities didn’t end there. Fans in attendance at the star’s New York show quickly took to social media to share the pop star’s remarks. One fan wrote on Twitter, “Now #Adele is leading us all in a group Brad and Ange’ breakup therapy session. Also, there are songs.”

It has to be said, Adele isn’t wrong in saying her songs are the weepy and heartbroken, she has forged a record-breaking career based off of her own bumpy experiences in love.

Hopefully, with time—and the help of Adele’s tunes—this split will one day be water under the bridge.

According to sources, superstar Adele recently snubbed the Kardashian family’s dinner invitation – because she doesn’t want to appear on their show. Oo-er!

Megastar Adele reportedly rejected the invite for dinner because she didn’t want the evening filmed for TV.

Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner offered the singing superstar the chance to have a slap up meal with the famous clan after she discovered the British singer had relocated to Los Angeles – just a stones throw away from daughter Kim Kardashian and son-in-law Kanye West.

The celebrity power couple also have a three-year-old daughter North West, who is the same age as Adele’s little boy, Angelo, with the dinner being to celebrate this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

But the 28-year-old singer sent back a flat reply of ‘no’ – despite being a big fan of their E! series, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

According to The Mirror, the famously private singer refused the invite because she wasn’t taken with the idea that the meeting would be filmed for the latest episodes of their reality series.

A source told the paper: “Kris feels it would be amazing for Kim and Kanye to give Adele an LA welcome and insiders’ knowledge after she bought a place here.”

They added: “At this stage, Adele is not sold on that idea.

“She hasn’t ruled out a dinner another time – it’s just a reality show isn’t for her.”

Despite this, the family remain on good terms with the singer – with Kendall Jenner being named as one of the star’s VIP guests earlier this year during a tour of the US.

Adele is now settling into her new life in America and is taking a break from the road before her tour restarts.

Well I never!
