You know guys, I don't know who any of you are, but I feel a strong kinship with the majority of the commenters and the original poster. Why? Because NO ONE in my fucking life seems to agree with me that Adele is an annoying, overrated, mainstream piece of shit. I have tons of friends who listen to, or at least attempt to, innovative/creative/experimental/progressive music, but even most of them say, "Shut up, she has an amazing voice," blah blah blah... I don't care how "amazing" her voice is, it's really loud and obnoxious. I like my singers to have a little more subtlety instead of yelling their hearts out at me. And yes, I get that it's supposed to be expressive and soulful, but the fact is it's in your face and overbearing. I pray to whatever that I never hear "Rolling in the Deep" again, though I know I will because popular music is constantly shoved down our throats like an enormous chode. Good evening to you all.
My sister listens to her all the time! Whenever I hear it, I fill up with rage and just want to falcon punch Adele in the face.
her songs are cliche. OMG a girl singing about relationships and breakups, how original! pshh yea fuckin right
In my opinion, Adele has a very powerful voice, and she could do a lot more with it if she just decided to branch out and experiment a little. All of her songs are very one-dimensional. They're really whiny and annoying. If she sang something a little more happy and about something other than relationships, she could do a lot better.
It's funny reading these comments saying 'get over him' and 'she'll be forever alone'. She's engaged and pregnant guys.
I just came across this thread, and it's 2 years later, and the guy still didn't marry her. She has a new album coming out in a few months, but since he hasn't dumped her, at least not yet, maybe this next CD will be a bit more upbeat?
It is a bit lame like that for sure also yrah
Wow, what the fuck is this? It's obvious many singers sing about heartbreak, but this was when Adele was actually heartbroken. She turned her depression into song, and it's some of the most beautiful things I've ever listened too. I don't give a fuck if you don't like her, just fuck off. I'll respect your music taste, respect others.
One or two songs about this guy to get over him, I can understand. But, with Adele, it's all that's been on her entire two albums! She's been singing about this guy for years now. He actually sued her after she became famous for not compensating him (monetarily) for the inspiration. Obviously, he isn't some amazing guy. And she hasn't turned her "depression" into a song; she's using her music to wallow in a miasma of self-pity. She just needs to get over it already—and should probably seek psychological help. (She said it would take over twenty years for her to get over this guy. Really, drama queen?) And you don't think other artists have ever been heartbroken? (Or have made a song while heartbroken?) Adele is nothing special—even worse, actually . . . Other artists can actually move on with their lives.
This is so true. My thoughts exactly. I actually enjoyed her music... until I heard every song AND EVERY FUCKING SONG is about the same douche. GET OVER HIM. It's just so pathetic. Everyone has been deeply in love and has experienced the loss, so stop making a scene.
Plus, she's fat. Knowing many fat chicks personally, and knowing that they are all the same, she's just so heartbroken because there was a cute guy who finally found her attractive. Now that he has left, she knows she will alone for ever, because no one likes a fattie.
Stop making songs about your ex and get to the gym, you fat cunt.
AGREED! VERY overrated! If she is SOOO powerful and is so talented/has a great voice, why does she make SO many annoying songs?! She's basically the same thing as Kelly Clarkson, if not ...WORSE! Her songs are written because she 1) doesn't write her own lyrics 2) she can't think of anything else. She sings like an angel?? Oh I'm sorry I must have mistaken that for someone getting their intestines ripped out!!! "I make music for ears, not eyes"....well the second one is obvious, but that quote is the most smug thing i've ever heard. Stop talking like you got the vocal range of Aretha Franklin..You make music for the ears alright and they're KILLIN mine. If she's a step above Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift then why is she just as equally annoying, if not worse???
Honestly Lady Gaga has a much better voice than Adele, if you watch some of her live or acoustic performances! Adele is just all power and no style. And I TOTALLY agree with you otherwise! That was an incredibly rude and smug statement of her to make. I feel like if anybody else had said that people would be a lot more critical. Just because Adele has too much self respect to shoot whipped cream out of her bra doesn't mean it's okay for her to be so critical and self-righteous.
ALL OF HER SONGS SOUND THE SAME UGHHHH I CANT STAND HER. i also don't get whats so good about her, i dont like her voice i find it VERY VERY ANNOYING !!!!! also her songs dont make any sense.
Yeah, how the hell is some one supposed to "set fire to the rain?!"
I hate Adele so much. I wish I could just beat her with a bat every time I hear set fire to the rain or someone like you on the radio. I havent listened to the radio for weeks just because someone like you literally comes on every hour.
She blows, hardcore
Yep, VERY VERY annoying indeed... I can't stand the sound of her voice! The sad thing is there are so many fools that are entertained by her 'squeak'!
There's a button for that!
Wow adele. We don't want to turn our radio's on every morning just to hear you whine. People say they look up to her as role model- she swears a lot. And most of all, when she's accepting awards, she acts like she expected it. She isn't even grateful.
I agree with Envy; everyone seems to like her. It's like its a crime to hate her. Sorry if I actually have a good taste in music and don't like people yelling their guts out. She is way overrated. People say they can relate to her songs because she talks about breakup, SO WHAT!? there are PLENTY of other artists out there that make songs that relate and are way BETTER. They don't make yell out and their songs aren't annoying. Seriously america, learn what music is.
Booya. Very annoying.
Just because they've found a white woman who can sing, doesn't mean that the whole world should fall to its knees and force the rest of us to listen to her even on our hip-hop stations! Please!
I knew I hated Adele for reasons other than just the fact that she is an oversized, disgusting, shameful, putrid ludicrous, blight on humanity. I knew that I hated her for more reasons than just being devoid of any discernible talent, soul, or originality. Oh, and did I mention Adele is annoying? Adele, on behalf of myself and my (dozens of) readers, thank you for proving me right. Adele, when you flashed your oversized, pudgy, braunschweiger of a middle finger at James Corden and the audience at the Brit Awards simply for cutting your time short, you proved that not only are you a talentless hack, but also a classless piece of garbage.
Oh! How dare anyone cut the “great Adele”??? she has SOOOOOOO many great things to say!! Adele, go home and forget your troubles with 3 tubs of Chunky Monkey and two-dozen maple-bacon donuts like you always do. The producers had a job to do by adhering to their time constraint and, quite frankly, we’ve all had enough of you anyway. When the producers of the Brit Awards cut your time short, they displayed a humanitarian act of mercy so selfless that it would rival anything done by Mother Theresa, Princess Diana, or Jonas Salk. Adele, you’...
She tries to get people to feel sorry for her because she's fat.
Nobody gives a shit. You don't like your weight? Keep it to yourself.
Her voice hurts my ears and her songs are overplayed.
She needs to gtfo.
I hate her too, but I wouldn't make fun of her weight. This is about her music and talent (or lack of), not her appearance.
I TOTALLY AGREE WITH HER STUPID INNOCENT EYEBROWS n EYES! well u no wat? shes one disgusting fat lady who is a hore with her new stupid baby. she actually said she loves making out with her fat body... too bad her boyfriend did not get squished.
She acts like she is proud to be overweight which isn't really a good message like it's ok to be comfortable with your weight but she is hating on skinny girls just because they are skinny and she acts like she is the best singer ever.. Also WAY overrated.
way overplayed and overhyped. it seems that british singers get way too much credit. she does have talent but i luv charice. now that girl has talent sings live no autotune. adele is surely better than the autotuned american singers of her generation who really are not very good.
THANK YOU. Truly, thank you. I haven't watched TV in years, so I regretfully had never heard of Charice until your comment. I've spent the past 4 hours catching up. Incredible. "No Autotune" is the true seal of talent. Thank you so very much.
adele is boring singer
Adele keeps singing about breaking up with people and how she’ll always remember them.
You know the old saying: “An elephant never forgets.”
She won Grammys? That's your argument? Milli Vanilli won Grammys too. What's your point?
She is boring and her music get annoying as fuck after a while. I honestly don't know why she got so much hype. And her voice is not that extraordinary.
Adele is a mediocre, untalented corporate product. They promoted the "fat girl with an amazing voice who got dumped by her boyfriend then became a famous singer" story and 200 million brainwashed people bought into that
Man, you said it perfectly: corporate product. All you need are 200 million buffoons to get sucked into it.
And she spells her name stupidly, like "A-deal." It should be spelled: Adelle.
Her songs are now #1. Seriously does anyone know what music is anymore? We don't want to hear crying and whining in every song. We want someone who's happy, doesn't smoke, doesn't act like she's the bomb, and actually sings good songs. If you guys think adele is this, then your just pure sad
It is pretty easy to see why her ex left her, my God, what a phony this broad is. I have a feeling that she always was a whiny bitch and that's the real reason he left her. Just watching her and her self absorbed hand gestures make me want to vomit. It's like she is acting and very bad at it. And she looks like she is a real bitch. Oh and nice flipping everyone off, nice touch that really shows class . . . NOT!
her song is making everyone wants to slit their own throat, thank god for taking away and stripping away her voice, i hope her surgery did not went well so she wont be able to SING forever!!!!!!
Adull, er I mean Adele is extremely painful to listen too, especially that one song "Someone like you" when she is trying so hard to hit high notes. Do not get the hype. She is not one of a kind like so many think.
I find it funny people take the time to dedicate a page to someone they hate. What a waste of Your time. When I hate something I never think of it again. Thoughts, whether negative or positive, only bring power to the subject at hand. If you hate her, stop doing her the favor.
Like fuck shes doing her best
She can't sing in tune!! Is this fascination with her down to some kind of mass-hysteria?? How can people be so deaf as to the fact that Adele consistently sings flat??? Sure, she has a powerful set of lungs and has a powerful voice, but it's harsh, shreiky and often, most of all, FLAT! Source: experienced musician, singer and music teacher for more than 22 years
My feelings exactly. Her loud, overbearing style, lots of sustained, flat notes, and her pretentious slurring pronunciations annoy the hell out of me.
Even more annoying is that so many people I know seem to be caught up in the hype.
What's kind of sad is that I think that Adele could be a good singer with a little coaching and some better songs. I get the idea that because she has this loud, piercing voice, she is self-indulgent and has not learned to control it better. That, plus her songs are really just repetitive and vacuous. The songs seem to be designed to highlight her ability to sustain loud notes for a long time. Nice for her, but not interesting to listen to.
I'm sensing some jealousy...maybe u wanted to be a big-time artist, but had to resort to being a music teacher instead? I wonder if ur instructing ur students (if u have any) to sing sharper than they should be.
If she's a little bit flat, it's in the style of the music. I've never heard her be "out of tune" or in the wrong key. Ur hyper-analyzing, and clearly jealous.
I like how no one has mentioned an artist that is DOING IT RIGHT. Should we be listening to and admiring Ke$sha? How about Niki Minaj? Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson are up there talent-wise, and both have given mad props to Adele.
Just cuz u don't like Adele, doesn't make her over-rated. She's well-lauded in the audio and musical production communities....that's why u only see her getting "dissed" on weird sites like this. SMH.........
Yes she's bloody annoying. Like Michael Bolton years before. I just cant stand constant whinging and whining in song.I don't know what the is deal is about with her. Not that she isn't a good singer or not talented because she is to a point. But like Bolton shes a modern kamikaze singer. Bashing you overt the head with her problems.
no comment on her music, i just find her insufferable mainly because of her contradictory statements and hypocritical behavior. she has every right to her opinion concerning people who are on the cover of vogue etc but i find it rather amusing that after her condescending statement, she agrees to be on the cover for vogue.
I can't stand her. She gets MAD airplay anywhere I go be it a sports game, grocery store, gym, etc. The first time I heard "Rolling in the Deep" I remember hoping I wouldn't hear it again because of how whiny it was. So much for that because now she has at least 4 other songs that are in constant rotation. Ugh...
Adele is the most annoying untalented pig in the world. I thought she had only one hit song, but apparently she's had more than one hit. That's because all her drivel sounds the same. When I hear her song, I feel like punching her in the face.
Number of unknown women on YouTube who can sing circles around Adele. There is nothing special about her voice. She hollers and yells and has a mediocre vibrato. People think she's great because she's been heavily marketed and has a pretty face, pouty lips and fluttering eyelashes. If she looked like Susan Boyle nobody would care much and her YouTube video would never have been noticed by that recording exec who discovered her. Susan Boyle could sing circles around her.
Are people just sympathizing with her cuz she's overweight or something? I mean...c'mon. You must be deaf to not hear the crap she sings. And the only thing "perfect" about her is her stupid nose which she had plastic surgery for...lol.
she is a pathetic singer and looks like shes 50.. i mean cmon! hometown glory is a hometown disaster. her voice is like a 60 year old sad granny and sour and she has a bloody personality! im english like her but wat the heck? she made me want to kill that english person
her voice is very annoying and she is very ugly.
Adele is a fat, untalented, poorly dressed and you look frightful. You’re lucky anyone pays attention to you at all. Further, your album “21″ is the sum total of all of your fans’ IQs.
I never thought anyone would give Jewel competition in the Over-singing a song department, but Adelle certainly is trying her best.
I actually liked her - slightly before I heard how obnoxious she is and how her voice ACTUALLY sounds: Really annoying look up an interview she's loud too. Then she sings and sounds like an "angel" but lets be honest how can you find someone like that angelic at all...
She's pregnant now, imagine how fat she will be when she give birth to her baby!
I agree she dose my fucking head in .each time the radios on adeles on! I was on holiday last week and someone like you was on and as I went to the toilet to pee there was speakers in there where it got louder! Would sound even better if I was having a shit. I cant believe she's singing the the them for the next bond film! You can even see her bloody face on it! This is all comming from a huge record collecter who once worked for a while in the music biss , my father was a musisan before he died and I have meet many famous acts back stage. And I would nt touch her albums with a barge poll . The media forces the public to buy shit like tba.
I just can't stand the way she changes the way words sound.. She says "instead" like "instaaayyyeedd". She tries to hard to have 'soul' and just ends up falling flat (literally). Someone Like You is the best example of a song where she is CONSTANTLY flat. And the lyrics are just so dumb. Nevermind, I'll find someone like you? Seriously? I don't like one guy, so I'm gonna go get one JUST like him? I don't get it Adele. I don't get it.
I agree with the original post. I think Adele is massively overrated, with limited talent and frankly quite unattractive. We can't expect every pop starlet to be Britney, but as an earlier reply stated, there are a great many unknown musicians who have much more to offer than Adele and they could do with the airplay that is wasted on her.
She sucks. She is so bad I would rate her as good if not better than Eminem and Kanye.
They all sell lots of albums which makes me wonder is everyone FU.
She says she never wants to be thin, well look at yourself adele! your like a round pumpkin with an annoying voice...
Of course she'd say that, I mean there is absolutely no chance of her being thin, so she's safe there!
Personally, I really don't see why anybody likes Adele as much as they do. There are singers out there with better voices, and I think it's really annoying and boring that pretty much ALL of her songs are about breakups!
Her songs are catchy and easy to sing along to. Her voice is unlike most of the ones we hear in modern pop music.
Adele should swallow her tongue and do the world a massive favor!!!!!!!
I have never seen so many anonymous comments on one post..
Pretty sure most of them are the same person. Like, 99% sure.
Plus, why are you muppets who like her, even here?! This is not for you, so fuck off!!!
So I feel like all of these comments are the same person.
Pardon my language, but FUCK YOU. I just scrolled through all of these comments to type that, only to find out someone already did. Thanks, I hope you're happy!
You've successfully killed the rest of my self esteem.
Was thinking the exact thing. If it's true, they had a ton of time to waste.
Everyone i know LOVES Adele ! i feel persecuted for not liking her music !
Now Im a big believer in not listening to crap i dont enjoy ...
its easy to say "you dont have to listen if you dont want to hear it"
but this crap is constantly on the radio ! so its difficult not to listen !! especially when you work in a factory where you are not in control of the radio ! it can be torture on a daily basis !
.... yes Adele is overrated, depressing and just shit !
I haven been tempted to seek different employment just so i dont have to listen to her monotonous whining every single day !
I cant stand Adele but thanks to the radio i have listened to her new album in its entiriety ! and all those songs sound the bloody same !
When are people going to stop liking whats popular ? its like everyone likes her because everyone else does !!! ...
we are not sheep ! nor are we cattle FFS !
And taylor swift.. All her songs are complaining and sound the same
Jesus Christ! I'm glad I am not alone.
This is a far better breakup song than any of the ones that Adele has ever made
Hmph... my kids like her ... but I agree with you 101 percent. I find her singing as subtle as a loud fog horn. No volume control, No EQ, No mute button, No tenderness, Fake emotion, just one LOUD, LOUD sound - EVERY NOTE MUST BE A POWER NOTE...
Every time one of ther songs comes on, I skip radio channels.
I spent two hours at a cafe where they were playing an entire album and my head hurt so much my ears just couldnt stand it anymore and id perhaps never go back to that cafe. my head still hurts now and her screeching is still in my head and im about to vomit.
You couldn't have said it any better! I am a vocal coach, & can't stand to hear singers push the break by yelling their friggin' throats out. No wonder she had to get vocal surgery; yes, it was to over-use, but also to vocal trauma. There's a time & place for yelling; it's at a sporting event. What's happened to honouring great technique, and (as the person below said) subtelty? What's happened to the singers who actually open the back of their mouths when they sing, so we can hear a well-controlled open tone that doesn't damage our ears? I'm glad we are all in agreement here! And the coin doesn't stop here, folks.... one of the biggest artists in Christian music now - Lauren Daigle - is another Adele-like singer.
Sometimes I play a game with myself. I crank up one of Adele's songs (or a song from an equally annoying band--Lady Antebellum, Katy Perry, etc.) and see how much I can take (the most I lasted was 45 seconds) and when I reach the breaking point, I tune in to some Rob Zombie, Metallica, Rammstein, etc. to counteract the drivel from overrated skanks (a.k.a modern divas)
SHAGGED HER TWICE, SHE WAS CRAP/.
Overrated, yes; annoying, no. I think her voice is beautiful and her songs are really good, but they treat her like she's some new found goddess and her songs are way too overplayed.
Also; Why are most of the comments on this post anonymous?
Funny, I bet some of you guys are listening to Rumor has it right now while you are trolling >:o
Hmmm... Interesting how seemingly at least half of the comments are just about her appearance/weight/etc and plain insults, instead of thoughtful criticism. I mean, the way she looks or the fact she's getting a baby aren't exactly related to her abilities as a singer/artist, are they? (Unless of course she writes a song about her baby/appearance)
I'm not exactly a fan, but she has a decent voice and certainly knows how to sing. Liking it is a whole other matter
Just makes the world that much worse of a place.
She may be overplayed, maybe even overrated, but she is actually pretty good and it is sometimes refreshing to hear Adele as opposed to other popular artists.
Refreshing my ass
You have to look at the current musical landscape. She's a popular artist doing "soul" music in the modern day. I can only imagine what u guys think a talented female vocalist SHOULD sound like lol...ask urselves that, please. We've basically got Beyonce, Jennifer Hudson, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus.....and....Kesha lol. Honestly, Beyonce and Hudson throw huge amounts of respect towards Adele for her talent. If u guys dont like what's on the radio, change the fkn channel. BTW, the people here agreeing with u are a TINY fraction of the population, and are like the weirdos in the back that fkn HATE EVERYTHING, usually cuz their LIVES SUCK.
Whether or not I like her, I think the comments on this page are disgusting and you should be ashamed of yourselves
No there not and they should be proud of themselves. I dont have have a problem with her weight ,its not a crime to be fat as a matter of fact fat girls turn me on but everyone on here is only speaking the truth. She sucks like most pop acts but she s the most annoying of them all!
Hey, Haters Gotta Hate! X0
Why would anyone listen to music they hate and then blog about it?
Btw, im listening to adele right now!
not to be rude, but i just have one question to say, why listen to something you hate and start typing how much you hate it instead of doing something else like... GETTING A LIFE!!!
Because it's not possible to turn the radio on, or walk into a store, without hearing her. If there was a way to avoid her I'd do it.
FUCK OFF YOU HATERS!!!! ADELE IS AWESOME AND BEAUTIFUL IN EVERY SINGLE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please turn off the caps, thanks.
You obviously dont recognise good talent your fooled by what ever the press shoves down your fucking throat
A bovine beauty to be sure. Her kind are worshiped in India.
Guys shut up, if you see, every artist in their own right are great. If you hate her, then keep it to yourself, no need to keep on bitching about them.
Expressing my opinion is a right I hold dear. You're welcome to go ahead and attack "artists" YOU dislike (of course there is some one you don't like, you're just too chicken shit to admit it). You can tell us we're wrong, tell us we're haters, but don't you DARE tell us to keep anything to ourselves.
'Shut up'? You are as rude as that pig. Just because your IQ is the same as her album (21) doesn't make you soul mates
You're an idiot. she is one of the most powerful singers in the world. I'm sorry if you don't appreciate the beauty of her voice and the fact that she is one of the only modern singers who can actually sing like an angel. i pity the fact that you can't see the beauty when she sings and the meaning and hurt she's endured that are shown in her songs. You really should give her a chance honestly.
EH EH EH! Run for your life, anon! The pussy police just received an alert that the music of an ungrateful cow is something you find moving and beautiful!!!
Aw. Your reply is so kawaii.
She dose get a chance its just you can't get away from her music and you ve been brain washed by the media into believeing she's the best thing since Ray Charles or Aretha Franklin
