Did Adele Insult The British?
Did Adele just give a reason for the British people to feel insulted?Advertisement
The 28-year-old singer has always been known for coming out with highly-successful tracks. In fact, she has already received numerous awards, including Grammys’ Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 2009.
With her popularity, a number of her singles, such as “Hello,” have been among the widely-used pieces in singing competitions.
What did she do then that could have insulted the British?
Mirror UK suggested that Adele appeared ashamed to learn about the number of times she showed off her alleged potty mouth.
Accordingly, the “Skyfall” singer said the four-letter word numerous times during her performance at the Glastonbury Festival.
Amid this, she was reportedly afraid to swear again about putting an end to her so-called potty mouth.
“I managed to swear 33 times,” she stated. “Thirty-three times. I mean I’m not a mathematician — I didn’t even pass my exams and that — but that’s like every couple of minutes, swearing, right?”
“I’m trying to powder my tongue a little bit and not swear so much,” she added.
For using bad language, Adele reportedly pointed out that “I’m British” while on the stage of Staples Center in Los Angeles. Her “excuse” however rubbed her British fans the wrong way. They claimed that not all British people love to swear.
Meanwhile, amid her desire to finally quit using foul words, she seemed unaware that she made mention of it again after she asked the audience if there were teachers among them.
“Well, f***ing hell, I love teachers — they’re so important in our lives,” she quipped.
In other news, Billboard reported that Adele’s “Send My Love” has topped the adult pop songs chart.
The song, whose video premiered on May 22, is already the fifth single of the British artist to make it to the no. 1 spot of the music chart.
