  • The World Music Awards’ Twitter account stated in a tweet: “ confirms 2015 Tour After The Release Of Her New Album ‘25’!” However, Chairman Martin Mills of Beggars Group, the parent company to Adele’s XL Recordings, tells Billboard that there’s “no truth in this.” So which is it and what’s happening? We want answers.[Billboard]
