Adele’s singing is incredible and few would argue otherwise. In doing what she loves, Adele seems to have fun and smashes records. She’s having so much fun she’s shattering her own records, now. Graham Norton, television host from BBC, watched her indulge in her craft on his show; Adele’s appearance will make many a viewer fall in love with her after watching this video.
Adele pummeled records as her video clocked over 37 million views in two week’s time, Vanity Fair reported. The previous record for the most views boasted 36.9 million views when the boys from The Fresh Prince of Belair, Alfonso Ribero and Will Smith, plus Smith’s son, Jaden Smith, performed the Carlton dance on The Graham Norton Show. There is one other small difference in the numbers racked up here, the Carlton dancing video amassed those views over a couple of years and the Adele video obtained its views in only a couple of weeks.
Adele’s earth-shattering, record-breaking success continues as she moves into the field of acting with French-Canadian director, Xavier Dolan. The film is The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, and even though it’s a cameo appearance, Adele’s got to start somewhere. According to Vanity Fair, Adele gets her acting skills from watching her own acting in her videos, such as slamming her flip phone closed with the passion of a scorned woman in her video for “Hello.”
Xavier Dolan explains why he’s having the recording artist, Adele, use a flip phone despite the controversy of using such an outdated device. Dolan uses his artistic flair to express iPhones and laptops are not romantic, USA Today reports.
“They’re elements that you identify to our reality so much that – whether it’s a short film, a film, a music video – they just hurt the piece’s sensibility and reality, and it’s not as romantic.”
As Adele lovers, fans may want to understand the artistry of her craft and the reason her records are hitting the charts as heavily as they are. Adele is just like any other person in the way she is emotionally binding, but stronger than most in that she can show it. Adele’s success comes from being an extremely talented and emotionally-charged singer, who is able to jerk tears from her fans’ eyes and then turn around and cause them to laugh out loud with relief. She can do this because she is a performer, not just a singer and not just an actress.
