Despite the ongoing Skrillex-pocalypse consuming the little bit of pop music that isn't already LMFAO-ed, the human race can still get behind a bird with some pipes.

Last year, Adele became the first artist to go double-platinum on iTunes. And this year she not only swept the Grammys but now, evidently, is keeping the music industry plugged into its life support system.

Y'know, at first we're a little annoyed that anyone is helping the dickheads who sold CDs for $18 make anymore money. 

But when supposed pop royalty spends its time in a (ugh) "flame war" with some fucking normsteplectro LARPer, we could maybe warm up to Adele's innocuousness. Because, after all, at least she's not Tweeting.
