British songstress Adele recently gave credit to Governor Sarah for a measure of her success.
During an interview on her BBC special, Adele revealed that the former Governor of Alaska is part of how she got to where she is today.
As it turns out, Palin was meant to appear on Saturday Night Live the week after Adele was slated to be the show’s musical guest — but fate turned the tables.
“Because something came up in the campaign, she came and did [SNL] the week I was doing it.”
Not only did the episode became one of the most watched in the show’s history, it ushered in a streak of triumph for Adele.
“It was one of the most watched SNLs ever and then it was two weeks before the Grammy ballot” … “literally the stars aligned for me,” she explained.
“The album shot to number one on iTunes and I was nominated for a Grammy and then I won one! ” … “All thanks to Sarah Palin!” (Mashable)
Governor Palin thanked Adele for her kind words with a signed copy of her new book ‘Sweet Freedom: A Devotional’. On the inside cover, Sarah included a clever, personal note riddled with references to Adele’s song titles.
The note reads:
You look so great! So beautiful!
So… Rumor Has It you recently threw me some credit for your amazing success –
Very kind coming from Someone Like You! Congrats on motherhood –
Keep Setting Fire to the Rain.
Love, your fan …
– Sarah Palin
‘Rumor Has It’, ‘Someone Like You’, and ‘Setting Fire to the Rain’ are all titles to Adele songs
