Singer Adele Says the World Has Been Pronouncing Her Name Wrong

How to Pronounce Her Name

In a recent questions and answers session at an afterparty for the release of her new song “I Drink Wine,” Adele got excited over a video question from a fan. But she was not so excited about the question itself — she was happy someone finally got her name right! While everyone who knows of her pronounced the name Ah-Dell this entire time, it should be pronounced as Uh-dale, explains the singer in front of her audience!

Las Vegas Residency Date

The famous singer decided it was time to get something off her chest at a recent talk at an afterparty for her new song. It was ahead of her rescheduled 32-date Las Vegas Residency. The tickets for the show have been reselling at prices as high as £40,000! And now all her fans have a date for her series of shows and can enjoy the power of her voice!

Adele on Her New Album

The powerful singer’s new album 30 has heartfelt songs, and she explains why. She says that before writing it, she filed for divorce from her long-time partner Simon Konecki, who she shares custody of their 10-year-old son, Angelo, with. She was devastated and says she felt embarrassed, not because someone made her feel that way but because she felt like she didn’t do a good job. Many of the songs on her album are about that heartbreak.


Adele has gone through physical and mental changes throughout the years, but it’s important that she keeps her head up and continues to create hit songs for her countless fans to enjoy. Now we all have to get used to the correct pronunciation of her name — Uh-dale and keep rocking to her lyrics!
