In this age of greater personal acceptance, the battleground seems to be getting everyone to say the right pronouns. But share a thought for Adele, because it turns out we’ve been pronouncing her actual name wrong for the last decade and more.
Adele was being interview by Benito Skinner, when a video clip of a fan was played, and the fan said Adele’s name differently… and it turns out correctly because Adele was impressed ‘Where’s she from, Enfield? She said my name perfectly!’
She the explain because of the accent where she grew up it’s not ud-dell but uh-dale, and quite frankly we are shocked and embarrassed.
