^ Japan never embrace a lot of artists. Even Wannabe and ...Baby One More Time didn't perform well there.

Hello, it's me, I was wondering what Adele fans call themselves or what she refers to when speaking of her fans? You know, like the Rihanna Navy, the Little Monsters etc.

Everyone is an Adele fan, so they don't need to call themselves a name to tear them apart from other fanbases. :p



Now, for real, I don't think they have a name? She's a serious artist and her fans are normal people, not a bunch of teenagers that feel the need to have a name.

'25' has spent 7 weeks at #1 in the UK, but it is on course to fall this week - it's midweek #4 behind David Bowie (new album), Elvis Presley & Justin Bieber. There's a chance that a David Bowie compilation could overtake too.

It is amazing she has held on that long really, she has everything against her right now, full price album while everyone else is on sale, no streaming 'sales' still no real push for the 2nd single.

I loved that she sang the high notes on 'Someone Like You'. It looked like she could do them quite easily so I don't know why she always changes the song on live performances.
