#Adele’s biographer has been tipping off fans of the superstar pop singer of the likelihood of a damehood coming her way in the not too distant future. The author Sean Smith senses that the prized honour could soon be bestowed on the “Rolling in the Deep” songstress, after consulting with friends and colleagues as he penned his new book about her.

Used to setting records

Already an MBE, the 28-year-old Adele has gained mega-stardom in the #Music industry at a relatively young age. Records have already been set and broken by the Tottenham-born vocalist, with her progressive albums “19”, “21” and “25” enjoying critical and commercial success across the globe.

Yet to become a dame whilst still in her twenties would surely cement her place as a national treasure.

Bold prediction

Smith has boldly predicted that Adele “will be made a dame at a very young age,” as he outlined how the likes of top television presenter Graham Norton would introduce her as such. Let’s “give it up for Dame Adele Adkins” had a pleasing sound in the author’s opinion.

Accepters and decliners

If she were to receive the award, Adele would be in good company. Fellow Bond theme singer, Shirley Bassey was made a dame in 2000 by the Queen for services to the performing arts.

Although other leading stars in the music world have enjoyed similar recognition in the past – Sir Elton John and Sir Paul McCartney to name but a few – not all of Adele’s peers have been so welcoming of the ‘offer’.

The late David Bowie famously declined a knighthood back in 2003, stating that he would “never have any intention of accepting anything like that.”

Jagger displeased Richards

Mick Jagger accepted the title in the same year that Bowie declined his potential honour, although his fellow bandmate Keith Richards was adamant that he should have similarly declined the award at the time.

Babies to feature in Adele’s plans

Adele’s current plans seem to involve babies rather than anything else though. After wrapping up her exhausting 10-month world tour in Arizona recently, the “Hello” crooner reportedly said: “Take me down. I'm going to go have another baby,” as she was being lowered beneath the stage.

She will return

Despite the clear signal that she is looking forward to some well-deserved time away from the spotlight soon, Adele did promise American fans “in a couple of years I'll be back. You won't be able to get rid of me." More imminently, she is also due to begin a month-long tour of Australia and New Zealand in February next year. #Celebrities
