As the great hip-hop trio Whodini once asked, “Friends – how many of us have them? Friends – the ones we can trust?” I often think of it when it comes to celebrities because of stories like this: “Adele Talking about becoming friends with Nicole Richie and Jennifer Lawrence: ‘They Humanized Me’, “which comes via People, via her new Rolling stones profile.
With her neighbors Lawrence and Richie described as “industry friends” in the profile, Adele admits she became friends with them after postponing making connections with famous people. “They humanized me because I had avoided talking to anyone who was ever famous in any capacity, because I was such that I am not famous. That’s how I am very British,” she said. “We never talked about work, which was great, most of the time when I catch up with someone they want to know everything about my work and I do not want to talk about it. Can we talk about something else? I’m crunchy. “
It must be so hard to have reliable friends when one is famous. One must always ask oneself, friends – how many of us have them? It may sound like the world’s smallest violin at work, or a small complaint that these diamond shoes are too tight. Notice how the play indicates that Adele bought the house in Beverly Hills along with the neighbors Before she began to think of herself as famous. But it really seems like a strange kind of negotiation. Think about how hard it is to find friends who will make you an adult! Then add fame and money! What a mess.
Anyway, can you imagine the wine they are going to drink? Looks funny. Glad Adele managed to make some damn friends. At the very least, there is someone who enjoys one of the best living chitchatters on a regular basis.
