After yesterday’s veritable bonanza of crazy and weird to draw stories from, we’re faced with another dry news day, which means we’re going to have to scrape up all the stuff that makes you go “ummmm, what?” and turn it into cohesive gossip. Like this story about how Adele is convinced that her house is haunted, because even the dead want her to sign their copies of 21. “Come on, please? I had to break through the walls of limbo just to get he- awwww, don’t be a dick about this.” New York Daily News reports:
With 10 bedrooms, two swimming pools and 25 acres of grounds, there is plenty of space to hold the six Grammys she won last month, but a pal says she’s complained of hearing rattling noises in her newly rented home. The 19th-century, red-brick country mansion, which Adele just moved into last month, was used as a convent in the 1970s. The grounds also include a private chapel.
“Adele was so excited to be renting such a lavish property, but it has not turned out as happily as it should have,” an unnamed friend told the Sun. “She is convinced it is haunted. She knows about its religious history — and it’s a big place to be in on your own in the dead of night.”
Well, to be fair, it is a gigantic house, so all that creaking is probably just the house settling throughout the night. Although admittedly, I do need to sleep with my laptop running an episode of The Muppet Show if I want to get to sleep when I’m alone in my apartment, but that’s only because I’m pretty sure the guy next door might be an incubus. Ghosts aren’t real, but incubi? Totally real. And afraid of Muppets.
