“Hello” is the one word now when muttered, you think of two people: Lionel Richie and Adele.

Adele’s recent single “Hello,” opens up with the word that was first sung by Richie in the 80’s. Instantly, folks started creating mashups of Adele and Lionel’s classic hit, which thank goodness, has sparked conversation about a collaboration. “We are going to be doing something together—that’s already almost in the works,” he told E! News exclusively.

“I can almost say that we are talking, but right now she has a mission. Her mission is [to] get her record out and go on tour, so until she finishes that cycle, that won’t happen just yet. She is committed to that,” he explained.

But how does Richie feel about the famous pop star releasing a track so reminiscent of his very own? “You have no idea how many people called me on the phone and said, ‘Are you going to let her get away with that? She stole ‘Hello!” Then I said I don’t own ‘Hello.’ I own the melody,” he told the news outlet during a preview of his new home collection to Manhattan’s top real estate brokers at the TOWN Residential Art Basel kick-off event.

Lionel said, “But, what it did was it blew everything to the ceiling. The conversation came up. If you say Adele and you say Lionel or Lionel and Adele…that’s the best pairing you could have!”

“Hello” was the first single from the 27-year-old’s album 25 which was released nearly two weeks ago. Album sales have gone on to break major records, which according to Billboard, 3.38 million sold in its first week  (Nov. 20-Nov. 26), at least 650,000 sold in it’s second week, now totaling more than 4 million pure album sales.

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!

Published

on

Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…

Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.

If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.

So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
