Janet Street-Porter: I can’t tolerate Adele being replaced by an over-packed Meghan Markle


I love Adele’s voice. Her live shows are electrifying. But please, please, please, just quit talking to her.

Fake sadness, tears flowing on the tap every hour and the vacuum of her bright shining life in sunny California. Hiking, gym, blah blah blah.

Saturn’s position in the planetary system is the only place in the world that can be cited as the reason for experiencing this thirty something (according to Oprah).

In the final countdown of Adele’s highly anticipated fourth album, the tidal wave of Dosa and Wallow shows no signs of retreating – Adele is everywhere, telling us about the ‘struggle’ that led to her songwriting; She’s got Celine Dion’s chewing gum in her home and a framed bit of wicker chairs in her garden.

Blah blah blah. Something to change the product.

In the process, we have all the details of her ‘journey’ from a wealthy woman with a devoted and good husband, and even for a rich woman who is ‘traumatized’ by the divorce she inspired.

Seven years of relationship, baby son and then marriage are the same year before the release of the divorce announcement at Easter in 2019.

And guess what? Instead of expressing sadness at this turn of events, some hard-core Adele fans were thrilled because they correctly realized that their heroine would be able to mine her new status – a single mother raising a young son while composing her next album.

She had a new theme – the tragedy of divorce.

Adele has made a fortune by portraying herself as unhappy grief.

In her late teens and early twenties, Adele was adorable – brave, loud, insane, and completely unprepared for all the awards she won for albums, clearly listing her bad relationships and disappointments in love.

Adele wore her heart on her sleeve and that is why her lyrics describing insecurity and loss are related to many people.

But is he now one of the most famous people in the world with multi-million-pound wealth – especially when we’re only hearing one side of the story?

At the end of the day, millions of people – particularly women – are living in real poverty, oppressed, undervalued, abused and ignored?

Are Adele’s recent fears – about reshaping her life after the divorce and explaining herself to her son – little in the way of a global project emphasizing feminist issues?

Originally this unaffected working-class London girl won our hearts by chasing pavements on Saturday Night Live in 2008.

The episode garnered the highest ratings in fourteen years and her album 19 was topped the charts.

Adele then wore a simple smack dress with a black cardigan covering her arms, her hair simply pulled.

Now, she’s kitted out for shows like the Marvel Comic Warrior with big hair, couture frocks that cover her like excessive makeup and a coat of armor.

She has worked hard and lost over 100 pounds, claiming that her mental strength is much more resilient.

Adele had never been a style maven in the past (which was part of her charm), preferring to keep tracky bottoms and t-shirts off the stage but now the team packages her for every occasion.

She is a brand and the message she wants to portray is – Strong Powerful Woman. Hence the white trouser suit for Oprah.

But these experts may be puzzled – the dress she wore to her latest NBA game with her new mate, wealthy sports agent Rich Paul, was ridiculous.

Janet Street-Porter says that the more she tells Adele, the more she becomes deeply shallow

Double denim has recently been considered acceptable, but triple leather remains a total no-no.

Aside from being incredibly sweaty and limited, the trench coat that adorned the leather pants, jacket and emblem was screaming of talkie and tasteless, conspicuous use.

Adele was sporting clothes worth £ 10,000, but she looked like an ad for Sofa World.

Putting aside fashion screw-ups, my main beef with Adele is that she loves it even more.

I grew up worshiping great female jazz and blues singers like Betty Carter, Nina Simone and Annie Ross.

I don’t want to know what color their bathtubs are, what they eat for breakfast and whether they suffer from anxiety whenever they sleep alone.

Their songs made it all talk – each note reveals a thousand emotions ranging from loss to longing.

In the modern world, a successful female singer should be marketed as a bar of soap, if fans are so nerdy they won’t buy music without giving a nugget about the legend they created.

Sadly, the more Adele says, the more the world becomes aware that she is deeply shallow.

Bob Dylan remains one of the most mysterious and charismatic performers of the last 100 years because he has revealed so little about himself.

In his new book, The Lyrics, Paul McCartney offers new versions of how great songs are written, so the mystery remains.

But Adele is millennial, which means everything is part of her journey. After the Oprah Show aired, tweeting, ‘It’s the most beautiful place I’ve ever played.

‘Thanks to everyone who made this possible. To Oprah who allowed me to lovingly tell my truth in a safe space.

‘The whole thing was so overwhelming, I’ve seen it twice and cried with my eyes both times.’

The classic Adele; Weeping and crying again. But what is ‘my truth’ and why should it be said in a ‘safe space’.

Can you tell the difference between Meghan Markle and Adele Adkins? Both had a difficult relationship with their father and worshiped their mother.

They both thought Oprah was the best person to share their ‘truths’ with.

In other words, to give the world a shiny version of what they want us to believe, is slickly edited and not challenged.

Adele has also mined her father’s memories – she left home when she was three years old and died of bowel cancer earlier this year, before she “reconciled” to the end and played her new album through Zoom.

She has spoken about her ‘great’ relationship with her ex-husband Simon and her son, 9-year-old Angelo, who live on the street in Los Angeles. But we still need to hear from Simon.

Do we need to know any of this to love her music? Less is more when it comes to Adele.

As such, there is another special on ITV this weekend, which was recorded in front of a worshiping celebrity audience at the London Palladium.

I hope I can skip it and spend the evening with my old Adele albums.
