British singer Adele has broken many records but she doesn't allow success enter her head. She is still humble and down-to-earth as ever. Believe it or not, she doesn't consider herself as a singer, as all her favourite singers are all-time greats.
“I don't even consider myself a singer. My interpretation of a singer is Etta James, Aretha Franklin and Billie Holiday. I don't rate my voice in that sense. The singers I listen to and who inspire me are all-time greats and legends," The Sun quoted the singer as saying.
Adele's album '21' has been at the top of the chart for 18 weeks, equaling the record set by the Bee Gees' track to the film Saturday Night Fever in 1977. She will join the league of all-greats if the sales of her album crosses three million copies in the UK alone.
Meanwhile, Adele has got seven MTV Video Music Awards nominations in various categories including Video of the Year, Best Female Video and Best Pop Video. She got all the nominations for her hit number “Rolling In The Deep".
