Jump To Adele Adkins' Stats
What ever you do, don't call Adele chunky. Karl Lagerfield found out the hard way. Nowadays, no one can croon like Adele. Known now by that singular moniker, Britain's Adele Laurie Blue Adkins has been busting her vocal cords and her diet on her way to establishing a net worth of $14,089,000. The 2012 six-time Grammy grabber, although in her early 20's, has used both her songwriting skills and tremendous vocal talent to swoon audiences world over with tunes of lost love.
Adele first took advantage of technology and got her start on MySpace through the prodding of a friend. Her initial submission caught the attention of those looking for new talent and propelled the plumster to capture a BRIT award beside some American Music Awards. He got great traction with her sophomore album called “21.”
She scored big there. The Grammys loved her, the audiences loved her and more importantly, the album buying public loved. Her. Beside capturing the Best Album of the Year during the 2012 Grammys, she collected another five of those golden gramophones to top all other artists.
The significance of the name 21 has only been explained that it represents a bad breakup. Now more that five million album buyers can attest to the heartache Adele must have gone through.
She is not afraid to cause a dust-up either. During one of her acceptance speeches during the 2012 Grammys, the orchestra attempted to time limit her speech by direction of the suits in charge. Adele curtly let her true feelings be known by flipping those in charge off before retreating offstage.
In October 2011, Adele was forced to cancel two tours because of a vocal cord hemorrhage. The singer underwent laser microsurgery at Massachusetts General Hospital during the first week of November. Post the 2012 Grammy Award ceremony, it appears that her recovery has gone well as she participates in limited singing performances.
Expect Adele to continue her singing and songwriting prowess as her net worth mushrooms.
