Despite the massive success of British singer Adele’s album 21 and her award-winning song “Skyfall,” her aunt says that she has remained unaffected by the fame.
Adele’s aunt, Anita Adkins, who is her mother’s sister, told UK’s The Sun that Adele is the same person with or without fame.
She insists “She doesn’t get any special treatment — of course not. Why would she? There’s plenty of nieces, nephews and grandchildren in this family so no one gets any special treatment, I can tell you. They’re all treated the same.”
She added, “Adele comes round and she’s still got to go and make her nan a cup of tea, I’m afraid.”
Maintaining “what you see is what you get” with Adele, Adkins also says of her niece winning the Oscar for “Skyfall,” “There’s not a lot more for her to top now, is there? She’s worked her way through all the awards,” The Daily Mail reports.
With her global success, having won Grammys, an Oscar and a Golden Globe, of course comes money, but Adkins says Adele is “quite thrifty” and when it comes to her money she is not “a waster.”
Meanwhile, Adele has become a mother and she made sure to include her son in on the Oscar success she achieved. She posted a picture of her Oscar along with a mini Oscar, with a plaque that said “best son” for her newborn.
“..and we're home! What an epic trip. Thanks for having us Hollywood!” she tweeted.
