Adele gets the royal treatment

If it were up to us Adele would win all the awards, so we heartily approve of the singer receiving a royal nod on Thursday.

The Grammy-winning songstress was presented with an MBE medal from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace on December 19 in recognition of her (excellent) services to music.

The medal places Adele as a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, which is one of the highest honors a British citizen can receive. Her full title, according to The Independent, is now Miss Adele Adkins MBE.

In a statement, Adele called the ceremony "a very proud moment," and one that was "very posh indeed."

The 25-year-old has been off the radar musically, but after releasing the global phenomenon "21" it makes sense she'd want a break. We haven't seen hide nor hair of the skilled singer, except for the rare occasions she's been spotted out with her one-year-old son.

    What, they can't make her a knight? They can do better than give some medal with the bottom all frayed and falling apart.

    There is no such thing as British royalty. Royalty doesn't exist in England.

    Ask Nick Leeson.
