Transcript of Adele Presentation
Not a dog." Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, better known and just Adele, was born on May 5th 1988 in West Norwood, London England. Adele was raised by her mother who was only 18 when she had her. She never had a father in her life. Adele stated singing when she was just two years old and went to high school for the preforming arts. When her friend put a video of Adele singing on MySpace, she was offered a recording contract with XL Recording just 3 days after graduating from high school. Just four months after graduating, she had already released her first two hits. Her breakthrough was "Hometown Glory". "Round my hometown, memories are fresh. Round my hometown, ooh the people I've met. Are the wonders of my world, are the wonders of my world, are the wonders of this world. Are the wonders and now"
This song was written by Adele when she was 18 years old. She wrote this song about wherever she goes, she will always remember when she came from. And the people that made her who she is today. Young Adele: " I love to hear my audience breath." Young Adele: In early 2008, Adele's first album was released. It was called 19. This was because that was the age she was when she first started recording it. Adele released "Chasing Pavements" on January 14th 2008 two weeks before her first album was set to hit the charts. The single hit number one on the UK charts and continued to stay there for four weeks. "I'm doing the same thing that skinny girls do. I have actually sold more records than some skinny girls" Fact:
One thing about Adele is that she has always loved baking. And that started from a young age. The reason that I love Adele so
much is because for one, her music is amazing. She is able to stand emotionless in the middle of a stage and is still able to bring you to tears. I think that only true artists are able to do that. Another reason that I love Adele is because she is herself. She doesn't change to make anyone else happy. She doesn't care about what other people think or say about her. She would much rather go out for dinner with her friends that go to the gym try and be thin for the next award show she will be going to. I think that we should have more celebrities like Adele. Only because so many girls look up to them. And if we see people in the media who we look up to that are stick thin, we are going to try and be like that. But if we have people like Adele who refuses to change for other people and is a normal size, that would be a better role model for girls to look up to.
" I don't like going to the gym. I like eating fine foods and drinking nice wine. Even if i had a really good figure, i don't think I would show my boobs and but for anyone. I love seeing Lady Gaga’s boobs and bum. I love seeing Katy Perry’s boobs and bum. Love it. But that’s not what my music is about. I don’t make music for eyes, I make music for ears."
I really like this quote because she talks about while she does like watching artists that put on a show and dance around the stage, that just isn't for her. She would much rather just stand and sing. She lets the music speak for itself. Because when she is writing a song, and it recording it she doesn't think about what she will do on stage. All she thinks about is if her audience enjoys her music. One thing that makes Adele very different from people her own age is that she is very down to earth. For example, after winning her first two Grammy's, she went and got a job at a music store sorting CD's in the back. Something else that she does is that she stays very reserved in the sense that she keeps to herself, and tries to say uninvolved with the media. After an award show, she likes to go home and sleep. Instead of going out and partying like every other artist her age. You will never find her on the cover of a magazine falling out of a club at 3am. If anything, you will see her in a magazine, trying to keep well hidden and to herself. Adele can be viewed as a feminist icon because she lets us know that’s it’s okay to be a woman and to still have feelings. She humanizes feminism because she lets us know that everyone gets hurt and vulnerability is a very real emotion. When she is hurt, she doesn’t let herself be walked over. She instead uses her feelings and emotions to write songs. Adele wrote the song “Rolling in the Deep” right after a break up after being told that she was worthless and she was going to live a boring life. This song is liberating because this song is a dig at the person who broke her heart. She is saying that it’s okay to fight back and to stand up for yourself. Turn my sorrow into treasured gold
You pay me back in kind and reap just what you sow
“Adele’s alluring self-confidence, fearless representation of vulnerability and heartbreak, and portrayal of a mature, strong woman in love render her to be the perfect feminist musician of 2011.” BY: CLAIRE ALLAN
