She truly is a musical powerhouse, and she has the Billboard chart to prove it. Adele has once again pushed her way to the top of the charts and is sitting comfortably in the number one position this past week.
The “Somebody Like You” songstress is celebrating her 68th week in the top 10 and according to statistics from NeilsonSoundScan, the singer has sold more than 75,000 copies of “21” this week bringing the total sales up to more than 9.3 million!
Although Adele has made a career out of writing songs about heartbreak and past relationships, she admitted to The Today Show's Matt Lauer that she would hate it if an ex-boyfriend did the same about her.
In a candid interview, the "Rolling in the Deep" singer said if one of her former boyfriends went public about their relationship, "I’d f****** s*** myself. I’d be mortified," taking time to point out, "But also if they wrote songs about me, they’d be: ‘This song’s about Adele’. I’ve never given any names ever, but everyone’s going to know this song’s about me. No-one actually knows who my songs are about".
