Adele and her Dachshund 'Louie' via the February 11 issue of Nylon magazine
Hot Hot Hot Soulful songstress and Dachshundist Adele's sophomore album '21' sees its American release today, so if you haven't already gotten your copy, head on out to your local record shop to pick one up! Released on January 24 in the UK, the album is still Number 1 on the charts there, outselling all the other albums in the Top 10 combined.
Her popularity has pushed her first album, '19' back in to the UK Top 10 as well. Adele is the first living artist to achieve the feat of two top five hits in both the UK Singles Chart and the UK Album Chart simultaneously since The Beatles in 1964.
Her handsome red smooth 'Louie' has been in the press with his beloved human as well in recent weeks. Something stinky happened during an interview with the Irish Times: We are 20 minutes into a right old natter, and Tottenham’s Aretha Franklin is wrinkling up her nose. “I’m so sorry, but the dog has farted.”
Louis Armstrong, Adele Adkins’s petite, tubular dachshund (aka Sausage), is soiling the atmosphere of XL Records’ headquarters in London’s Ladbroke Grove, but the apology is shot through with a bit of a cackle and a carry-on-regardless demeanour. Spend any length of time in the company of Adele and you’ll come to learn pretty damn quick that the classiest singer of her generation has little time for airs and graces.
Adele has even quipped that her third album will be all about Louie. Via UK's Daily Star: Having vented her romantic spleen on 19 and 21, Adele is ready to move on to a more positive topic, namely puppy love.
“My dog Louie is the love of my life,” she laughed, referring to her miniature dachshund. “The third album will be all about him I promise.”
Keep up with all things Adele, including her world tour, at her official website. Did you catch her on David Letterman last night? Fantastic!
