Adele feels like US President
Adele has teased that she felt like “Whitney Houston meets Obama” when she travelled via police escort.
The 22-year-old British songstress received vast international acclaim for her debut album, 19, and she is currently flying high in the charts with her second studio album, 21, which was released in the UK earlier this week.
Adele has been busy promoting the record across the globe, and last night had to rush back from France to her native London, England, where she was due to appear on BBC radio this morning. The star made it back in time, and found the whole thing very exciting, joking that she felt like a cross between US President Barack Obama and 47-year-old music icon Whitney Houston – in a nod to Whitney’s role in 1992 film The Bodyguard as an in-demand pop star.
“I was in Paris and had to get the last train. We got a police escort from Paris - proper convoy. I felt like Whitney Houston meets Obama,” she laughed once she had made it into the London studios of BBC Radio One.
The star admitted she is thrilled with the reception her second album has had so far, and says the success she has achieved leaves her flabbergasted. Adele isn’t sure which songs from the album will emerge as favourites yet, and is eager to find out which ones her fans like best.
“I don’t know where it’s come from,” she mused. “I don’t know what other people’s favourites are.”
