Do you know a more efficient way to break my gay little heart than to have a beautiful woman croon her sorrows? No? Neither do I. Adele Adkins is just 21 (try not to hate her), but her voice feels timeless. Her lyrics floor me time and time again, and her debut record, 19, is the sort of album that you’ll listen to straight through, on repeat, for days. Or maybe that’s just me. Prolly not, though, since it landed her two 2009 Grammys – one for Best New Artist, and one for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. And setting aside the genuine talent, how totally jealous are you of her bangs all-around-gorgeousness? Sing on, pretty lady.
