The Sun has revealed that the multi-million selling popstar has made sure that her name can't be used to sell perfume or jewellery without her consent.

I hear she's already negotiating with IHOP on a trademark all-you-can-eat breakfast deal.

She's trying to prevent getting ripped off by someone like you.

She'll put her name on nothing but the best.

Well, at least she will never have to be known as "the Artist Formerly Known As Adelle".

I can't even imagine how to draw a symbol for that.

It would probably be very round.

Is the article serious or is it just ironic that her record label is XL Recordings?

Not that there is anything wrong with chicks with meat on their bones, in fact I prefer that, just found it amusing.

She should spend more time on learning that there's no "o" in "Skyfall" and there's such a thing as a transpose button, so next time she wants to play "Someone Like You" she doesn't crack the goddamned high notes every time.

\still think she's way overrated, can't you tell?

Good idea, business-wise.

What if the perfume company hired another person named Adele and named the perfume after her?
 
2012-12-24 10:54:23 AM
You know who else has trademarked their name?

Who would want an Adele smell anyway?

I've known fat girls and they can't wipe away the sweat and shiat residue that resides along their asscrack. You don't ever want that smell bottled.

Whats this about a fake punt?

She can put her name on a pile of shiat, but she will make the money not someone else

FTA: Adele's "Someone Like You"... also entered the Co-Operative Funeralcare's chart of the top music played at funerals this year.

I find this most disconcerting.

If it's played for the deceased, it's kinda disrespectful and macabre.
If it's played for the mourners, it's kinda spooky and macabre.

Just macabre all-around.

No no, thats pronounced 'curvy', sometimes said as 'voluptuous'.

She doesn't want anyone exploiting her name by using it on products which may trick punters into thinking she's involved with it."

What if perfume and jewelry makers decide to use both her first AND last names?

I would have picked Joss Stone, who is hot, has a voice, and could have been in the movie.

recently named Entertainer Of The Year by the Associated Press. ... didn't release an album in 2012... The next Adele album may not come for some years...

I can think of some singers who should give this a try.

Joss is criminally underrated, even more so next to Adele.

Why are you smelling fat girl's asscracks in the first place?

She did sing the Bond song for 007: Bloodstone, which was ok. She was also a Bond girl in it. ..... kinda. I mean, it's a video game, but still.

Side note - they been really putting alot of effort to solidfy Daniel Craig as BOND - retconning Goldeneye and 007 Legenda (via Videogames) by making him the Bond in those stories, bolstered with the same voice talent as on screen in the movies. Kinda cool, but kinda weird at the same time if you ask me.

It's not quite taking David Prouse out of Darth Vader, but it kinda skirts it in a weird sort of way.

My Google-fu has failed me- anyone know what she named her kid? A preggo friend who's a fan wants to know...
 
2012-12-24 04:41:31 PM
i would do her over and over. she amazing and beautiful. saw her sing live and fell more in love

From TFA:

"The '21' vocalist has made sure her name can't be used to sell perfume or jewellery..."


For who, fatties?
 
2012-12-25 12:36:42 AM
This has brought up an interesting question. So if she did have a perfume what would it smell like? Big Macs or some awful british classic that no one eats anymore
 
2012-12-25 05:47:56 PM
Uh, she can't do that. "Adele" is a common name and she has no right. Just for that, I will name every single shiat I take "Adele" before I flush it down the toilet.
