Adele says that we’ve all been pronouncing her name wrong and now she’s finally revealed how to say it correctly. 

The ‘Someone Like You’ singer-songwriter, 34, has been in the public eye since 2008 when her first album dropped.

So you’d think after 14 years of being in the spotlight everyone would know pretty much everything about Adele – but she’s made it pretty clear that’s not the case.

Actually, it’s ‘uh-dale’… and I’m sure I’m not the only one feeling like a complete fool for saying it wrong all these years.

Adele says that everyone’s been pronouncing her name wrong when ironically, a fan said it correctly on the Q&A.

“Love that!” she replies. “She said my name perfectly.”

The British songstress, whose full name is Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, has previously discussed her name and why she’s always gone by Adele alone.

When appearing on the YouTube channel NikkieTutorials, the 34-year-old explained, via E! News: “I could have never used my surname.

“Adele Adkins does not have the same ring as Adele.”

The ‘Easy On Me’ singer went on to say that she felt her surname was ‘drab’.

Adele returned to the spotlight in 2021 with her critically appraised album ’30’ and to celebrate her comeback, she posed for two Vogue covers and sat for separate interviews for both the UK and US versions of the publication.

In the discussions, the ‘Rolling in the Deep’ musician opened up about her divorce to charity chief executive Simon Konecki, with whom she shares a 10-year-old son.

Adele told the UK version: “I didn’t want to end up like a lot of other people I knew. I wasn’t miserable miserable, but I would have been miserable had I not put myself first.”

She went on to discuss her anxiety and how it triggered her dramatic weight loss.

“Working out, I would just feel better,” Adele said.

“It was never about losing weight, it was always about becoming strong and giving myself as much time every day without my phone.”

The artist went on to slam the reaction her slimmer figure received, commenting: “People love to portray a divorced woman as spinning out of control, like, ‘Oh she must be crackers. She must’ve decided she wants to be a ho’.

“Because what is a woman without a husband? It’s bulls***.”

She added to the US version: “I understand why it’s a shock. I understand why some women especially were hurt. Visually I represented a lot of women. But I’m still the same person.”
