Adele has some BIG news for her fans.
No, she is not married or pregnant… rather, her fans have been saying her name wrong for over a decade.
The shocking revelation was made this week during a fan Q&A event for Adele’s “I Drink Wine” music video.

While talking to influencer and comedian Benito Skinner, the 34-year-old revealed the proper way to say her name.
A fan from London called in via satellite and pronounced her name as “Uh-Dale,” rather than “Ah-Dell.”
The singer responded to the fan’s call, “Love that. She said my name perfectly!”

The proper pronunciation is “Uh-Dale” and not “Ah-dell,” according to the British crooner.
During the same Q&A, Adele was asked about pursuing an the elusive EGOT.
“EGOT” stands for Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.
If Adele were to become an EGOT, she would join the likes of John Legend, Mel Brooks, Whoopi Goldberg, Audrey Hepburn, Rita Moreno and more.
“I can’t lie guys, I’m not a massive Broadway fan,” she admitted. “I know, I know. I’m talking about musicals though because I’ve been seeing a couple of plays but I don’t think I’ve seen enough.”
Adele Would Prefer An “EGO” Than An “EGOT
If Adele were to try her hand at Broadway, she feels she would be able to embody the role of Rose in “Gypsy.”
“I did love the role of the mum in it. She has a song when she was like, ‘I wanted to do all of this’ and she’s jealous of her own daughter and she’s really caught up about it,” she said. “At one bit, she was just a b**ch in it, which I could nail.”
While Broadway might not be in near future for Adele, she did say her upcoming Las Vegas residency at Caesar’s Palace could offer her a future Tony victory.
“I don’t think I’ve seen enough [Broadway] as a grown-up to know if I would want to do it. I was wondering, ‘Do I just move the show from Vegas to Broadway and win the Tony?’ I actually prefer the sound of an EGO than an EGOT,” Adele said at the event. “EGO is fun. But never say never. If I move to New York, I get bored, I’ll be on that stage in a hot second.”
Her “Weekends with Adele” will kick off later this month on November 18th and run through March 2023.
Adele and her team have done a complete overhaul of the show since canceling it in January.
You may recall that just 24-hours prior to her initial kick-off date in January, Adele dropped a bomb on excited fans and canceled her “Weekends with Adele” show.
In a tearful video, Adele informed fans the show wouldn’t go on.
“My show ain’t ready,” she said. ‘We’ve tried absolutely everything that we can to put it together in time, and for it to be good enough for you. But we’ve been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and COVID.”

Following the backlash, the singer admitted she struggled for months.
“The first couple of months were really, really hard,” Adele said. “But it actually made my self-confidence grow, because it was a very brave thing to do. And I don’t think many people would have done what I did. I’m very proud of myself for standing by my artistic needs.”
Adele has admitted her canceled ‘WWA’ show was the “worst moment” of her career.
“It was the worst moment in my career by far. I was so excited about those shows. It was devastating,” she admitted.
Adele claimed the show “lacked intimacy,” and she felt “disconnected” from her band.
Months later during an interview with Elle, she explained that canceling the show was the best thing she could’ve done.
The songstress said her new show will tell the story of her career. It will serve up major “nostalgia.”
“I want to tell the story of the beginning of my career to now. I’m not gonna give too much away about it, but the show grows,” she revealed. “It’s all about the music, and it’s really, really nostalgic. It’s gonna be so beautiful.”
