0

Adele has turned the tables on her fans, revealing that many have been saying her name improperly for years.

The Grammy-Award-winning singer hosted a happy hour to give a glimpse of her new music video for “I Drink Wine.”

During Q&A session posted online last week, the 34-year-old artist praised a fan for properly calling out her name. 

One video question for the pop icon was, “Hi, Adele. I’m Annie from London,” in which the fan asked the artist about her songwriting, before signing off the video with “Cheers babe, love you.”

She then noted that the moderator asked her earlier how to correctly pronounce her name.

While fans have been calling the “Chasing Pavements” singer “ah-dell,” the correct pronunciation is “uh-dale.”

To align with her North London accent, Adele said her name for emphasis on the second syllable during the hour-long fan event in Los Angeles.

“If I hadn’t made it in my singing, I think I would definitely be a teacher. I think I’d be an English Lit teacher,” she shared.

Adele said, “I definitely feel like I use my passion of English Lit in what I do,” as she writes her own music. 

“But even though it’s not like I’d go on to get a job from my degree, I wish I had gone to university, I wish I’d had that experience.”
