Fank You, Adele! Celebrate The YOK Vet’s 26th Birthday With This Adorable Throwback Interview

Six years ago, VH1 tapped a talented young English woman to become a You Oughta Know artist. Back then she was known as Adele Adkins, but todays she’s known all over the world as simply Adele: the gazillion-selling voice of passion, vulerability, emotional honesty, and soul. We met her when back when she had just dropped her debut, 19, watched with pride during the hysteria of her latest, 21, and today celebrate her 26th birthday!

It’s been an INCREDIBLE journey since she first stopped by our studios in 2008, but today we’re going to take a look back with this adorable vintage VH1 interview. In this pre-fame clip, the future superstar candidly opens up about her heroes, influences, image, and (of course) loves. It’s sweet, it’s funny, it’s real, and it reminds us why we fell in love with her in the first place! Adele, we’ll never find another “Someone Like You.” Join us in wishing her an amazing day! And let’s hope this is the year of 26
