Adele At Age Four In Wales, in a photo from her family's personal collection (James Davies)
Adele‘s always had the music bug!
In this photo, taken when she was four years old at her now-estranged father’s home in South Wales, shows the tot strumming a Fisher Price guitar and sitting on an amp!
Today, though, the 23-year-old isn’t speaking to her dad, after he spoke to the tabloids about her. She told Vogue, “If I ever see him, I will spit in his face…He will never hear from me again..It makes me angry! To come back after 10 years and be like, ‘Maybe her problem with men comes down to me.’ It’s like, ‘F–k off! How dare you comment on my life?’ It makes my blood boil.”

Ne-Yo‘s latest gig? Middle School principal!
He served as “Principal for the Day” for the nearly 600 students who are the winners of the Get Schooled Foundation’s National Attendance Challenge, an effort to increase daily attendance rates nationwide.
By the time the final school bell rang, Ne-Yo had performed hits “One in a Million” and “Miss Independent” for an auditorium filled with ecstatic students, co-taught a math class, and spoke about the importance of showing up to school and graduating from high school.
Ne-Yo said, “I am happy to partner with the Get Schooled Foundation to encourage attendance and education. It’s so important to show up, be present and pay attention so your dream becomes a successful reality.”
Get ready for a new all-boy band!
Simon Cowell is in the early stages of developing an all-boy band consisting of Americans, reports JustJared.
“Simon is really excited to form a group of guys from America,” a source tells the Web site. “He’s done such a fine job with British boys, so he’s ready to try his hand in America. He’s looking for the right people to team up with and create their sound.”
The X Factor judge’s other bands signed to his Syco label are British group One Direction and the quartet Il Divo.
Rihanna and Chris Brown are back on — professionally at the very least.
Following last week’s Twitter exchange between the exes — initiated by Brown when he wished Rihanna happy birthday — the pair are now collaborating on two remixed singles: her song “Birthday Cake” and his song “Turn Up the Music.” The collaboration comes three years after Brown assaulted Rihanna in a car in L.A.’s Hancock Park neighborhood.
Brown’s first line in Birthday Cake? “Girl I wanna f*** you right now. Been a long time, I’ve been missing your body.”
Meanwhile, Rihanna tweeted a link to “Turn Up The Music” Monday. Listen to it below:
