Her voice has been, for the last half a decade or so, the voice of England. Her personality unleashes upon hundreds of thousands of fans a lasting impact. There’s never been a doubt about Adele. There will never be a doubt about Adele’s incredible singing talent.
Although, what the Skyfall singer recently did with regards to organising a theme party leaves a bit of that incredible adulation under a spell of doubt. “Is this really Adele who was responsible for doing such a thing?” Questions like these might be weighing in on her detractors’ minds.
Having organised a lavish themed party on the occasion to mark her 30th birthday left Adele’s fans with mixed feelings. The criticism on Adele comes at having organised a Titanic theme-based party where the Brit singer along with her circle of friends brought the house down through hours and hours of revelling and celebrations and whatnot at the Beverly Hills.
While living true to the theme of the 1997 James Cameron epic, Adele really revved up the scene from a truly unforgettable film, it leaves plenty of her fans in bad taste. Out here in the Beverly Hills, Hollywood California, wild parties, lots of fanfare, cozying up, and frolicking are usual scenes, it’s somewhere surprising to find that Adele’s birthday party that didn’t result in creating any kind of civilian ruckus is being criticised.
Adele’s house is undoubtedly a sweltering paradise of its own and throwing luxurious parties that eat up a lot of space isn’t something that’s a concern for the house. But it is the aspect of having touched a sensitive never- lest it be forgotten that sinking of Titanic led to 150 deaths- is what is being criticised. Expensive liquor, grandeur in decor, typically Titanic costumes and gowns, and the incandescence of a truly illustrious ship gave attenders a wild time. You could say- if there ought to be a kind of a party on some theme, then this was to be it.
It’s not hard to think why so many of Adele’s friends have taken to social media posting smashing images from the soiree. But at the same time, it’s also not that difficult to sense what exactly gave her critics some talk-time. True to its grandeur, Titanic unleashed a colossal loss of lives, previously unseen in any chapter of history. The birthday party, it could be said, was a bit of both- a figure of envy and a symbol of blithe. Among her friends, models and comedians, dressed after the famous characters of the larger-than-life movie ensured that the celebration was a feisty one.
But perhaps the situation unfurls a question. In this age of armchair-activism ever so permissive on social media- could it be that we are being slightly overly critical about things? Here’s proof why this may be so. Titanic was as much about celebration of life as about the mourning the demise of so many lives brought about. The love, laughter and joie de vivre between Jack and Rose was a testimony to enjoying life with even the tiniest of threads of happiness.
