Adele Says Her Success Is 'All Thanks to Sarah Palin'
Pop music superstar Adele is crediting Sarah Palin for boosting her music career.
During an interview on her BBC special, the multiple award-winning singer/songwriter explained that she was the musical guest when Palin hosted "Saturday Night Live" in October 2008.
"It was one of the most watched 'SNLs' ever, and then it was two weeks before the Grammy ballot, which is when people decide what songs they want to maybe nominate, so, like, literally the stars aligned for me," Adele said. "The album shot to number one on iTunes and I was nominated for a Grammy, and then I won one! It was a joke! It was a joke. All thanks to Sarah Palin!"
After hearing Adele's remarks, the former vice presidential candidate sent Adele a copy of her new book, "Sweet Freedom," with a handwritten note that's packed with references to some of the musician's most famous lyrics:
Adele, You look so great! So beautiful! So … Rumor Has It you recently threw me some credit for your amazing success – very kind coming from Someone Like You! Congrats on motherhood. Keep Setting Fire to the Rain. Love, your fan ... Sarah Palin
