TheDailyBeast.com: Unconventional Pop Stars

Adele

After Adele's first big U.S. television appearance on "Saturday Night Live" in 2008, Americans took notice of this young British artist with a massive voice. Her debut album "19" shot up the Billboard charts and in 2009, she earned two Grammy Awards for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, as well as two other nominations. Two years later, Adele reemerged with her sophomore album "21," which debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 just weeks ago. The now-22-year-old redheaded songstress, who isn't the typically svelte pop tart, typically wears black and told The Mirror, "I don't want people to notice how I look." She added, "I'm bigger than most people doing this job, but I want people to just listen to me… I'm not going to lose weight because someone tells me to. I make music to be a musician not to be on the cover of Playboy."
