Adele has revealed that people have been saying her name wrong for years.
The English powerhouse made the shocking revelation during a recent ‘Happy Hour with Adele’ Q&A session.
Enfield-born, Tottenham-raised Adele revealed the correct pronunciation comes with a north London twang.
Put shortly, it’s pronounced Uh-Dale, instead of Uh-Dell.
She noted that one of the women who asked her about song writing pronounced her name “perfectly”.
“I love that,” she said. “She pronounced my name perfectly. Where’s she from, Enfield or something?”
The session was to mark the release of the singer’s I Drink Wine music video, after the track was released last year as part of the 34-year-old singer’s fourth studio album 30.
30 was the biggest-selling album of 2021, according to the UK Official Charts, and Adele performed I Drink Wine at the Brit Awards in February.
After postponing her Las Vegas residency earlier this year due to delivery delays and Covid-19, Adele is set to begin her series of shows at Caesars Palace next month, which will run until March 2023.
As well as the 24 rescheduled shows, eight more have been announced, with the residency running from November 18 to March 25.
The Easy On Me star, who now lives in Los Angeles, signalled her return to music with 30 in 2021 and launched the album with a TV special, An Audience With Adele, recorded at the London Palladium.
It was filmed in front of an A-list audience, with guests including Dame Emma Thompson, Jodie Comer, Samuel L Jackson, Years And Years star Olly Alexander and Boy George.
It followed her interview with American chat show host Oprah Winfrey for a two-hour special, which was broadcast on American network CBS the week before.
