Adele Surprises Grenfell Tower Firefighters With Cake And Cuddles

The firefighters at the Chelsea Fire Station in London were met with a great surprise when Adele stopped by to hang out. And she brought cake!

The 29-year-old stopped by Monday to thank the firefighters for their courageous efforts following the horrific fire in Grenfell Tower last week that left at least 17 people dead and dozens more in critical condition.

Photos of Adele’s visit were posted by the London Fire Brigade’s Twitter on Tuesday. They said they were “humbled” by everyone’s support and that they shared a cup of tea with singer.

Firefighter Rob Petty also shared the images of the visit on his Facebook page, also noting that they had tea and “a cuddle” with Adele.

Station manager Ben King told The Independent that “she just turned up at the station and knocked on the window and said she has some cakes for us.”

“So we opened the door to her and then she took her sunglasses off and said: ‘Hi, I’m Adele.’”

King also said that the department has had “so much support for the local community and we cannot thank everyone enough.”

Adele’s impromptu visit to the station comes after she visited the Grenfell Tower on Thursday, not even 24 hours after the devastation. During that visit, the singer was asking if anyone needed help and went “around and hugging everyone she could to comfort them.”

Beyoncé Might’ve Subtly Paid Homage To Adele At ‘Beauty And The Beast’ Premiere

Everyone in the music world remembers Adele’s awesome shout-out to Beyoncé at the Grammys while accepting the Album of the Year award in February.

“I can’t possibly accept this award, and I’m very humbled and I’m very grateful and gracious, but my artist of my life is Beyoncé and this album, to me, the ‘Lemonade’ album, was so monumental, Beyoncé,” she said, after “25” beat out Bey’s 2016 album for the night’s biggest award. “It was so monumental and so well-thought-out and so beautiful and soul-baring, and we all got to see another side to you that you don’t always let us see and we appreciate that.” 

That night, Adele also wore a tribute to Queen Bey on her chest: a lemon pin. 

Last week, Beyoncé and Blue Ivy attended the premiere of “Beauty and the Beast” together.

The singer wore a green empire-waist gown, while it appears that Blue wore a modified version of a tiered dress from Gucci’s Fall 2016 collection, according to E! News

BuzzFeed noticed that in the middle of Blue’s dress was a heart with “25” stitched in the center, which just might have been a nod to Ms. Adele Laurie Blue Adkins’ album.

While we don’t know for sure if the “25” had significance (a rep for Gucci was not immediately available for comment), we sure hope so.

A Guide To Sturgill Simpson, The Grammy Nominee Up Against Beyoncé And Adele

Sturgill Simpson may not be a household name, but the 38-year-old singer will compete Sunday in the coveted Album of the Year category at the Grammy Awards ― against many of the world’s biggest stars.

Simpson’s third solo studio effort, “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth,” is up against mainstream heavy-hitters: Beyoncé’s “Lemonade,” Adele’s “25,” Justin Bieber’s “Purpose” and Drake’s “Views.”

Even Simpson himself was surprised when the nominations came out in December, telling the Los Angeles Times, “In terms of what happened today, this never even crossed my mind. When we came off the road at Thanksgiving, I really thought, ‘Well, that’s it for this one. We’ve done everything,’ and I started thinking about what to do for the next record. This has all been slightly surreal to say the least.”

Surreal, indeed.

Read on for more about the man behind “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth.”

This isn’t Simpson’s first rodeo. 

His sophomore album, 2014’s “Metamodern Sounds in Country Music,” received a Grammy nomination for Best Americana Album. It also became a critics’ darling, ranking on Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Albums of 2014 list. 

Before going solo, Simpson played in a bluegrass band called Sunday Valley. The group released an EP in 2004 and made an appearance at the Pickathon Festival in Portland, Oregon. But they didn’t get too far, Simpson says. “We couldn’t travel because the bass player had a great gig with the fire department,” he told Rolling Stone.

Simpson comes from a family of coal miners. 

Born in Jackson, Kentucky, Simpson grew up listening to music. His grandmother had 45s by Otis Redding and Sam and Dave, and his older cousin introduced him to the likes of Cream and Jimi Hendrix. 

“I was the first male in my mother’s family not to work the mines,” he told Rolling Stone. “Mom was a secretary, Dad was a state cop. We lived in a prefab house just off the highway. When I was in second grade, we moved to Versailles, just outside Lexington.”

He has a wide range of musical influences.

David Bowie, Nirvana, Sly and the Family Stone, Bill Withers, Marvin Gaye, Pink Floyd, George Harrison, Curtis Mayfield and T Rex all inspired Simpson’s latest album. You can add Walt Disney to that list, too. “Those old-school Disney movies with the symphonies and strings are great!” he told American Songwriter. It’s no wonder. Simpson says he’s been watching old Disney movies with his son, who was born in June 2014.

He’s a former U.S. Navy sailor.

The Kentucky-born singer made an on-the-spot decision to enlist in the Navy. 

“I walked in, looked around, and the Navy recruiter was a really hot brunette, so I signed up with her,” Simpson told Garden and Gun.  

Simpson spent time doing service in Japan and Southeast Asia. But the three-year stint eventually came to an end.

“I wasn’t very good at taking orders,” he admitted.  

Simpson’s wife encouraged him to get serious about music.

Music faded into the background, when in 2006, Simpson decided to take a job working at a Salt Lake City railroad freight-shipping yard for the Union Pacific Railroad. After four years, his girlfriend (now wife) urged Simpson to pick up the guitar again. 

“My wife was a big catalyst for the move to Nashville. I had started really seriously writing for the first time in years and playing at home a bit,” he told Fader. “She said ‘You don’t exactly suck at this. You should know that you tried before you wake up at 40 and I’m stuck with your ass all miserable.’”

It’s a good thing Simpson gave music another go. No longer miserable, Simpson has carved out a musical career for himself. He’s also up for Best Country Album on Sunday ― and will perform on the Grammys stage, possibly inching closer to becoming a household name.

Adele Gives Rare Glimpse Into Her Private Life, For A Good Cause

Adele has achieved international superstar status at the tender age of 20 but she has managed to keep her personal life almost entirely private in the five years since. Until now, that is.

Promoting World Water Day on Saturday, March 22, Adele posted a four photo collage to her Twitter account. The clues we can glean are few but precious: Adele has a small fish tank, Adele looks positively stunning without makeup, and Adele’s 17-month-old baby boy Angelo is growing up so fast!

Gwyneth Paltrow, Britney Spears, Bar Refaeli and Katy Perry have also endorsed the important cause, aimed to provide clean water to the 800 million people who lack access to it, on social media this weekend.
