"You *do* realize I am the biggest-selling female artist ever?"

Oh, honey... That's not cool. Don't call yourself big. Maybe lose a few pounds if that's what you want to do. But don't let your weight hold you back. A little self confidence will really help your career take off.

/Also, no you're not.

Carth: Rapmaster2000: Her shelf life is about 6 months longer than his. I give them a year.

19 came out in what 2008? She's already been around 4 years and had a longer career than most pop singers.


Yes, but as soon as her voice goes(and it will, and that right soon), she will have nothing to offer. She's not hot and never will be, and seems to not have the best personality either, which is pretty inexcusable for someone her size.

Yea, once her voice goes I expect her to become a Judge on The Voice, X-factor or some other reality show. I'm not optimistic enough to think just because she stops releasing records we'll stop hearing about her.

Man encourages woman to strive to achieve dreams, woman responds "fark off, i'm the biggest selling artist ever"... yeah, he really comes off worse in this little tale.

If you met one of the world's best-selling musicians-an Elton John,Stevie Wonder,Bob Dylan-would you tell that person to "strive to achieve" what he or she has already achieved a thousand times over? Come on now.


As I said,he quickly realized how stupid it sounded and made amends. Good for him.

I've only heard of her in passing, I knew she was a singer, but I googled her to see where she ranks on top selling artists. Not even on the list. If she wants to be a top selling artist then she should just reach for her goals. I wouldn't put Adele in the same category as Elton, Stevie and Bob.


Um, wasn't there just a story of how she knocked someone off the top 10 most selling British albums of all time?

Serious question - why do women love to listen to songs about how men have wronged them? Ala Adele , Taylor Swift etc etc. That shiat is beyond cheesy to me.
 
2012-06-07 05:25:10 PM

TravisBickle62: leviosaurus: Is she really selling more than Madonna? According to wiki, Madonna's sales are over 300 million albums. I have trouble believing Adele has beaten that record.

Doubt she has outsold Barbara Streisand either


Or Dollly, or Mariah, or possibly Whitney

I don't think any of those singing reality shows would have her. Most of the chick judges are hot or at least were at some point. Except Steven Tyler, she was never hot, even in her coke whore days.

Young women are way into relationships. It's the thing they talk about. As women age they develop other interests and hobbies. So basically, if your 35 year-old girlfriend is listening to Adele, watch out.

No, she just sounds correct. Have heard one of her songs, she does have pipes.

As much as I dislike everything about Twilight....both Pattinson and Stewart seem like fairly reasonable people when I see them in interviews.

Because women are by and large drama queens, and they like bad boys who fark the shiat out of them, treat them like shiat, and leave them with crotchfruit. They think they can change the bad boy and make him not quite good, but good enough to hit them without leaving bruises.

Eh, most people I know just consume whatever music is put in front of them. Since the top 40 stations play Adele 4 times an hour, that's what they listen to 4 times an hour.

Hmm, my girl never listens to pop radio so I guess I avoid that issue. None of the girls I hang with do either. I just thought it was a young woman thing.

You don't need to buy her music any time soon. Yesterday flipping the dial in the car I heard "Rolling in the Deep", "Rumor Has It" and "Fire to the Rain" on 3 different stations at the same time. At this rate they should just give her her own farking radio station and let the other stations play something else.

2012-06-07 05:50:10 PM
I'm normally all about hating on top 40 stuff, but Adele is a different beast. Wait, I didn't mean for it to sound like that...

Anywho, she writes and arranges pretty much everything, which makes her "not another vapid manufactured pop star" in my book.

I only like a few songs, but the girl can sing.

Adele is the most talented singer on the planet at this moment.

I sense a lot of the "well she's popular so she sucks" stupidity from our more Derpster Farkers, And, you gotta wonder when the Kanye West/Black Racist/White Guilt Liberal nutjobs are gonna come out and start whining because Adele sounds like a black woman who can actually sing....not this Beyonce/Rihanna/Street Ho crap/hop shiat

Can you imagine Black Derp Thug Kanye West trying to take the microphone from Adele. Adele would kick that sissy ass all over the place, then write a "fark you" song about it

Oh, she put Sissy Boy Pattinson in his place. Man, if you are backing Pattinson on this one....you gotta case of da ghey

What? Does the guy want to be Tony Robbins?

I wish he was around 15 years ago to tell Michael Jordan to reach his goals after he was the best player in the league and won his 6th ring

Or maybe he could've pushed George Washington, after all, the guy really under achieved with being one of the greatest generals of all time and becoming president.

The Beatles could've really use him too

That reminds me of the 90's when Creed was at their peak. More than once I would hear 2 or 3 Creed songs playing on different stations. Of course if you like the music you stop at the first station, so this phenomenon is unique to people who are sick of some super-famous artist...

There's a lot in this thread that needs to be addressed.

1.) Her voice is not unique. Watch a few episodes of The Voice or such. There's a LOT of people out there that SHOULD be on the radio. Why makes her any different? Right place, right time I imagine.

2.) Record sales will never be comparable again. We have 50+ years of charts and figures for sales that are completely skewed by the new business model of single-song downloads and unheard of availability. You can't compare a 2012 artist and their sales with that of one from 1960. It won't work. it will never be fare. There is no formula to even begin estimating what The Beatles sales figures would look like if they hit the scene today. We will continue to see the sales records of classic artists destroyed by manufactured bubble-gum pop based on entertainment instead of musical talent. And I will continue to be annoyed every single time. Like Katy Perry's records. Really? I mean, really? No one respectable is going to acknowledge that.

3.) She's really not that fat. But, she has been around long enough to lose weight. And losing weight (appearance in general) is HUGE for that industry and the spotlight. Why hasn't she?

3b.) Same for her attitude. Fix that shiat. You have not earned the right to be an eccentric dick (looking at you, Prince) and not be judged. And again, while you can earn that right, no one respects the utilization of it. Be more like Weird Al (who has probably sold more than Adele, anyway).

4.) Captain McSparkles is worth more to pop culture than you are. More people can pick him out of line-up than you, and he has more to offer than a scratchy voice and bad attitude.

You actually have that entirely backwards. Record sales have dropped off massively over the last 15 or so years. Adele's last album sold three times the amount of the next highest album last year, which is farking insane. Still not anywhere near the all-time album sales list. 2011 had half the total album sales of 2004.

Adele is a songwriter just like Beyonce and Taylor Swift are songwriters. Also, Jay-Z is worth 25 billion dollars and he's the CEO of all audible musical notes to the human ear.

I swear, some of you monkeys will believe anything from a f*cking press release. I have to assume the same PR machine pushing Adele being the biggest whatever of all time is the same PR machine that told me Creed was the biggest rock band of all time back in the 90's.
