    I’d like to quote a youtube comment I once read. I used to think it’s not true but comments on here sometimes prove it. “I’m so glad that Adele is not american. Over there it doesnt matter if a singer can sing. They just need to look like p*rnstars”
    everytime adele is mentioned someone brings her weight up. she’s a damn brilliant singer. and thats her job. not fullfilling your little boy fantasies -.-

    No Biebs, yet he promotes himself as the top singer. Interesting what publicity can do to delude the mind of prissy, little, tweens.
