Janets On Top... and Adele Demands Bigger Venues
Ms. Jackson sits atop the charts once again. This time as an author. Her first book, “True You,” based on her personal experiences, growth, battles with self-worth and weight issues that she's battled with publicly over the years rose to the top of the prestigious New York Times Best Seller List.
Not only is the book about self esteem, Janet enlists her nutritionist to unveil the wholesome, delicious recipes and lifestyle-changing tips that helped her get in shape—mind and spirit, heart and soul.
True You: A Journey to Finding and Loving Yourself is co-written with David Ritz. The book is 272 pages. Janet is currently on her SOLD OUT "Up close and personal Tour" That due to demand may end up on a HBO Special fingers crossed yall..
Adele may not like her newfound popularity but that isn’t stopping fans from demanding her. The British soul songstress, who kicks off her U.S. tour in May, was recently forced to change several dates to bigger venues to keep up with demand after her shows sold out in minutes.
On June 1, her show in Seattle, Washington will move from the intimate Showbox hall to the bigger Paramount, which seats more fans. She has also moved a show in Los Angeles on June 9 to the larger Palladium and added extra dates in New York.
Adele who hates playing larger venues recently admitted, "I can't do arenas because I'm not (Lady) Gaga."
'21,' the latest release from Adele, is expected to debut at No. 1 next week on the Billboard 200 chart. The set is expected to shift 275,000 to 300,000 copies by week's end on Sunday, Feb. 27
