She may be the whitest person on earth, however its quite apparent that no matter your race everyone loves Adele. As evidenced by her 16th consecutive week atop the Billboard 200, tying the record set by the soundtrack to Titanic (people used to buy movie soundtracks?). And now to further show the world's love affair with her Adele's 'Someone Like You' has been nominated for the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Song. I agree it is an Outstanding Song, but have to admit I was shocked considering the awards obviously are generally aimed at African-Americans, but perhaps it shouldn't be surprising considering both Eminem and Timberlake have accepted the same award.
It's been a huge year for her, record breaking success, the Grammys she sure to bring home, and now an NAACP award nod. Here's to hoping she comes back from throat surgery unscathed and can continue on in the amazing career she's just started.
