Hello!

by

A nine-year-old girl has become an Internet sensation after a video of her performing Adele’s Hello in a bid to connect with her late father went viral.

After her mother asked her why she was repeatedly singing the song in her bedroom, Sadiella Shroyer explained that it was her way of apologising to her dad “from the other side”.

In a heart-breaking Instagram post Ami Shroyer wrote:  “This song became popular about the time we lost Mike.  She would sing it over and over in her room, and I asked her one time why she liked this song so much.”

“Her response: ‘I think Daddy can hear me from the other side, and I'm sorry for everything I ever did that was wrong.’”

Ami – who is herself a singer-songwriter – revealed the emotions her daughter’s words evoked in her.

“Broke. My. Heart,” she wrote.  “Still… she loves this song, even if the rest of the world is tired of it…I really really love this girl!”

According to Babble, Sadiella’s dad died in December 2015 after an unexplained obstruction eventually caused him to go into cardiac arrest.

Months later, her grandfather, Ami’s father, died from a brain haemorrhage.

Ami told the site that her family have dealt with those tragedies through a combination of faith and music.

After four years out of the spotlight, Adele came back with more than a bang late last year – she had a whole new album, a new and more sophisticated look and the promise of a 2016 tour.

The singer appears on the cover of the March issue of US Vogue, and it's clear just how much she's grown up since the days of Hometown Glory and Rolling In The Deep.

"I think I had to take the right amount of time off to let people miss me," she says of her  extended hiatus.

Now a mum to three-year-old Angelo with her long-time boyfriend Simon Konecki, Adele says her whole perspective on life has changed.

"I can’t have any other junk in my head to worry about as well," she says, speaking about how parenthood has altered her outlook.

Angelo "makes me very proud of myself," she adds. "When I became a parent, I felt like I was truly living. I had a purpose, where before I didn’t."

After launching her career in her late teens with 19, Adele's had eight years as a high-profile celeb, and she says she's finally getting comfortable in her own skin.

"Actually I like myself more than ever. I really like how I look, I like who I am, I like everyone that I surround myself with.

"Obviously I have insecurities," she says – mentioning her "bum chin," her "intense" forehead, and her "potato" fingers – "but they don't hold me back."

Despite wearing a stunning array of Edrem, Burberry, Alexander McQueen and Salvatore Ferragamo pieces for the Vogue shoot, Adele says she's usually found in far less glamorous outfits.

"I don’t go out like this. I look like a bedraggled mother; I look like anyone else," she admits.

"When I’m with my kid I’m in leggings and a jumper and a pair of Converse because the grubby little hands are going to mark anything nice."

If there's one thing we can't imagine Adele as, it's "bedraggled"…

So it turns out that Adele is just like the rest of us and is in love with Drake. 

In a recent interview with ETalk, the singer confessed, "I love Drake so much," before revealing that she would like to collaborate with him. 

She added that she would love an official Hotline Bling remix with the rapper and would perhaps mix Hello into the hit song. 

"Call me on my flip phone, late night when you need my love." Sounds catchy, right? 

She also admitted that she has ordered the red bomber jacket that Drake wears in his hit track video, AND that there's a video of her drunkenly doing some Drake dance-moves too (but we all know she's not allowed on social media on her own, so we're sure that will probably never surface on the Internet. Sob). 

So, can we make this collaboration happen sometime soon please?!

It seems that every celeb in the world is either covering Adele's Hello, or spoofing it – but this spoof may just come out on top of all the rest.

Matthew hosted Saturday night's SNL and was joined by cast members Beck Bennett, Jay Pharoah, Cecily Strong, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon and Vanessa Bayer in lip-syncing Hello every time an argument broke out in the video.

The sketch soon develops into a full-on parody of Adele's music video, complete with a full-on wind machine:

Adele's return to the music scene has inspired many others to try their hand at her love song, Hello. It's no easy feat and only a few so far have stood out. 

But arguably the most impressive one yet is Demi Lovato's. She performed the hit song during her set at KISS FM's Fall Ball in Seattle and proved to the world that her voice is just as good as Adele's. 

With Demi's tour starting in June, we're hoping she sings more show-stoppers like this:

Breaking news! It turns out that even Adele is not immune to a good bout of bawling whenever she hears her own music.

In fact, Adele is very  aware that her music makes you cry, and is revealing that she uses herself as the test subject to determine whether or not a song is good enough to be tear-inducing. 

In her latest interview with The New York Times, Adele said that she knows she's got a good tune on her hands when she feels herself start to well up.

"In order for me to feel confident with one of my songs it has to really move me," she explained. "That's how I know that I've written a good song for myself — it's when I start crying. It's when I just break out in [expletive] tears in the vocal booth or in the studio, and I'll need a moment to myself."​ 

So when you hear Hello and start sobbing over the missed romantic opportunity with that random guy on the bus that you briefly made eye contact with 2007, you're exactly the kind of audience that Adele is working to reach. She really knows what gets to us all.

Prior to the release of her latest tear-jerker, Adele worried that she'd waited too long to release another album. She explained that she didn't see much buzz about the teaser that played during ​The X Factor ​— she only saw three tweets​. ​"I was like, 'Oh, no, I've missed my window.” 

"'Oh, no, it's too late. The comeback's gone. No one cares.'"​ Her boyfriend then showed her that the tweets actually numbered in the thousands, with good reason.

Hello seems to have been played nonstop since the release, and the amount of memes that is has inspired have surely broken some sort of internet record. 

Hello sold more than a million downloads in a week and is poised to become the biggest song of 2015.  So, Adele is clearly content with her in-studio testing process of crying her eyes out.

Normally, if a rather creepy clown sang to you, "after all these years, you'd like to meet," you'd more than likely run home and hide. 

Fortunately in this case, the creepy clown is Joe Jonas dressed up for Halloween and this is a beautiful cover of Adele's new song Hello

Even though Joe is completely unrecognisable, it's still a pretty good video:

After a three year hiatus, Adele finally popped back up to say Hello and gave her first interview in FOREVER, where we actually learned quite a bit about the mysterious singer.

In an interview with i-D Magazine, she opened up about her new album, 25, as well as what it's like to be a mother. But the Skyfall singer also talked about what she wants in her future, and that is Britney Spears. 

In the interview, the singer was asked "what's next?" and she said she would love to go on a proper tour and also said "I'd like to see Britney in Vegas."

We like they way you're thinking Adele. And so does Britney herself.

Ms Spears read Adele's interview and decided to reach out to her on Twitter saying that she will trade two tickets for her Piece Of Me show for two tickets to Adele's upcoming tour (which sounds pretty fair to us).

We hope these two become BFFs now and cannot wait to see both of them cheering each other on from the front row.

Just days ago Adele revealed that she would soon be releasing her first album in four years.

The 27-year old singer told her fans in an emotional letter which she posted on social media, that her album 25 would be released on 20 November. 

 

25 out November 20th

The first single, Hello and the accompanying video has been made available to her fans today.

Naturally, they were very excited by the news. 

 

The song is a classic Adele ballad with a sepia-tined video. While it might have been four years since we heard something new from the singer, she still sounds amazing. 

Also, the video really amps up the retro vibes with that flip phone. People are a little bit obsessed with it. 

Her eyeliner is also a huge topic of conversation. It never fails to looks anything less than incredible. Seriously, how does one create such symmetry every single time?

Adele’s fans quickly took to Twitter to express their delight at her return. 

When she spoke to BBC Radio 1 earlier today however, she admitted that she had some serious doubts about the quality of her new music.

She said her “confidence was knocked” and almost scrapped numerous songs for 35 because they “weren’t good enough.”

Thankfully, Hello was not one of them.

She's probably the ultimate beach babe – and not just because she goes on holidays ALL the time (yes, we're just jealous).

And Michelle Keegan reminded us all of said fact this weekend, sharing a GORGEOUS #throwback bikini snap that has us rethinking that bag of chips eaten on the way home last night.

Depicting the 28-year-old actress in a metallic bikini with subtle stud detail, her summer bod is pretty much as perfect as they come.

Not only that, but we also have major hair envy, skin envy, teeth envy, tiny waist envy, accessories envy… well, suffice to say we're fairly envious. 

"#tbf… Until next year summer," she captioned the stunning image – which has so far garnered some 75,000 likes from fans.

Still, Ms Keegan this week in her Hello! magazine blog told fans that actually she's a big fan of festive delights.

"It’s starting to feel a bit more like winter is on its way," she wrote. "I love autumn/winter… You may assume that my favourite season is summer (because I love a bit of sun) but it isn’t!

"I love the rich, deep colours of autumn and the anticipation of winter because Christmas is my favourite time of the year. It’s not long now!"

Michelle furthermore went on to say that next year is already looking promising.

Citing a series of "very important" work meetings, she added: "Fingers crossed 2016 will be a very busy year for me!"
