It pains us as Adele megafans to admit we’ve been saying her name wrong all these years.
The superstar singer confirmed how to correctly pronounce her name last week when she took part in a fan Q&A to mark the release of her 'I Drink Wine' music video.
Watch the moment unfold below:
Holding up a glass of wine to the camera, one of Adele’s fans said: “Hi Adele [pronounced uh-del, not ah-del], I’m Annie and I’m from London.
“My question is: on your journey to self love while writing 30, did your perspective on how you saw yourself when you wrote 25 change at all, and how?”
Adele was quick to pick up on Annie’s expert pronunciation, exclaiming: “Where’s she from, Enfield or something? Love that - she said my name perfectly.”
Elsewhere in the Q&A, Adele revealed she plans to obtain a degree in English literature after completing her Las Vegas residency, which kicks off this month and stretches into the new year.
She told the crowd: “It's something that, if I hadn't made it in my singing, I think I would definitely be a teacher. I think I would be an English lit teacher,” she said, adding: “After Vegas, I really want to get a degree in English literature.”
The 34-year-old continued: “I definitely think I use my passion for English lit in what I do. I wish I'd gone to university and had that experience, but I will do it online with a tutor.”
At her blockbuster comeback gig in London last year, Adele could barely contain her excitement when she was greeted by one of her old teachers, Ms McDonald.
Before learning that Ms McDonald was in the audience, Adele had gushed to the crowd when asked about her inspirations as a youngster: “[Ms McDonald] was cool and so relatable and likeable, that I really looked forward to my English lessons.
"She left in year eight but she got me really into literature, I've always been obsessed with English and obviously now I write lyrics.
"She was so cool, so engaging, and she really made us care, and we knew that she cared about us and stuff like that."
Ms McDonald then stood up in the audience and told the superstar: “You're amazing darling, I am so proud of you.”
