Adele Said We've Been Pronouncing Her Name Wrong, And I'm Literally Flabbergasted

Mind: blown.

You know Adele — she's a vocal powerhouse, hitmaker, songwriting queen.

During the afterparty, Adele answered questions from fans — some IRL and some who submitted video questions.

One video question was from someone who said, "Hi, Adele. I'm Annie from London." She then asked Adele a songwriting question.

But I was most struck by Adele's reaction. She said, "Is she from Enfield? She said my name perfectly!"

Adele then audibly demonstrated how to properly pronounce her name. It's like "Huh-Dale."

I always thought it was UHDEL. HUHDALE.


My mind right now:

What do y'all make of this? Let me know in the comments below!
