Added DiffLines:

* HumbleHero: After receiving the 2017 Grammy for Album of the Year, her first words backstage were that Music/{{Beyonce}} really deserved it.

Added DiffLines:

* YourCostumeNeedsWork: Attempted this one the same way Music/{{Jewel}} had done before by disguising herself to prank an Adele impersonator contest. However, that disguise failed the moment she started singing.

!! Adele provides examples of:
* {{Adorkable}}: Reviews of her live concerts frequently comment on her candor with the audience, and for good reason - Adele is a brassy, vivacious dork.

* BeehiveHairdo: To go with her classic diva aesthetic, of course.
* BreakupSong: Pretty much the entirety of ''21''.
* CelebrityResemblance: After losing some weight recently, people have said she looks like actress Creator/SarahPaulson.

* %%* BeehiveHairdo: To go with her classic diva aesthetic, of course.
* BreakupSong: Pretty much the entirety of ''21''. \n* CelebrityResemblance: After losing some weight recently, people have said she looks like actress Creator/SarahPaulson. Almost all of the songs are sung to a (recent) ex.



* FeedTheMole: Did this with her staff to find out who was leaking stories about her to the press.
* FirstNameBasis: Very few people call her Adele Adkins.
* {{Hello}}: The first single off ''25''. It's an introduction to a former lover, [[SignatureStyle of course.]]
* HeroicBSOD: In an interview, she remembers crying because of her vocal illness, and losing her voice.
* HeroicRROD: She's spent 2011 struggling with a vocal illness brought on partly by overtaxing her voice, which has forced her to cancel a lot of tour dates in America.



* LadySwearsALot: When she's not singing, she's a self-confessed profanity lover.



* OddFriendship: With rapper Music/TinieTempah & flamboyant chat show host Alan Carr.
* PaperThinDisguise: A few days before the realease of ''25'', she applied a fake nose and chin and joined an audition of impersonators. Nobody recognized her until she started to sing.



* TheRival: The British music press seems to be quite keen on setting her up as a rival to Music/LadyGaga. The singer herself doesn't seem to buy into it. In fact, [[https://twitter.com/ladygaga/status/657680554750402560 they appear to get along with each other]].



* WomanInBlack: There's barely a concert where she doesn't wear a black dress.

* BreakupSong: Pretty much the entirety of ''21''. Justified, as it was written after a particularly messy breakup.

* LyricalDissonance: The "Lovesong" cover is one big example of this. "You make me feel like I'm home again" to some of the most darkest production ever
