Adele – Hello

A commenter recently asked for me to review another music video.

This one has already been viewed more than 450 million times even though it has only been on YouTube for a month. It’s nice that a song that’s more mature is popular, instead of some crappy gangsta rap. On the other hand, I really enjoy Katy Perry videos a lot more, and I confess that I also enjoyed the video by that Korean guy a lot more.

In the video, shown in artsy sepia-toned black and white, Adele reminisces about a boyfriend who she dumped in the past, but now feels guilty about it. Adele is a blue-eyed white girl and the ex-boyfriend is black. I think it would have been much better if the ex-boyfriend was Asian. Asian men could really use a boost to their self-esteem.

  1. Adele is also morbidly obese. For once, the media got it right.

    • hard to imagine what the love was about in this video. maybe they broke up over who would pay for the groceries this week. she folds – “fine, I’ll pay, again…”


      November 22, 2015 at 1:27 pm

    • She’s lost a lot of weight. I don’t keep up w/her, but that’s what I hear.

  2. I can’t stand when whites put on a fake black accent. Might as well smear burnt cork on their face too. Adele tries to sing like that and it sounds ignorant.

    Speaking of enjoyable music videos, it’s pretty sad when a couple of girls with a water hose, a handheld camera, no script and no budget can make a better video than professionals. But I’ve noticed that a lot of fan made music videos are better than the originals.

    • That’s a horrible video for a horrible song. All that is has going for it is that both chicks are hot.


      November 22, 2015 at 4:49 pm

    • Fake and real black accents are everywhere nowadays. It drives me crazy.


      November 22, 2015 at 6:51 pm

      • Gothamite — It’s more than just fake black accents. All fake accents annoy me. I have a deep regional accent but can also speak with no regional accent. I think no accent is different than a fake accent.

    • Still better than the official video for that song… or most official videos. You can say it’s not but it is. Most official videos suck.

  3. lol. there’s lion going after poor asian guys. Lion, do you need to kick them down while everyone else is doing it !


    November 22, 2015 at 1:24 pm

  4. The lament of a low-class mudshark.


    November 22, 2015 at 1:49 pm

  5. I was surprised that there weren’t cries of “racism” since the violent boyfriend was black. But I guess having an interracial relationship more than makes up for it, regardless of whether the guy ended up being abusive or not.

  6. “On the other hand, I really enjoy Katy Perry videos a lot more.”

    I’ll bet you like Jane Mansfield movies too. Of course, who doesn’t.


    November 22, 2015 at 2:03 pm

    • Yes, I lose my head over them.


      November 22, 2015 at 7:46 pm

  7. “Asian men could really use a boost to their self-esteem.”

    Rough. And if you’re going to review videos, try Me So Horny by 2 Live Crew. A classic…

  8. On the other hand, I really enjoy Katy Perry videos a lot more.

    Katy Perry’s ex-boyfriend is black and covered with tattoos and has cork plugs in his ears.

    She really needed to get back at her Christian religious parents. LOL.

    Then she married a sleazy old English guy in a Hindu ceremony.


    November 22, 2015 at 3:39 pm

    • Katy Perry had atrocious acne problems when she was younger, so I’m not sure it was so much getting back at her parents as extreme low self esteem because of her face. She would eventually make a few million doing ads for the anti-acne medication Proactiv, which supposedly cured her.


      November 22, 2015 at 7:04 pm

      • @perez

        So what’s your explanation for Doutzen Kroes?


        November 22, 2015 at 8:11 pm

  9. I heard black guys like chubby white women because they, black guys, have a higher musical IQ and chubby white women have a wider vocal range.


    November 22, 2015 at 3:51 pm

    • Hm… Not what they say in Rikers.


      November 22, 2015 at 6:05 pm

    • Musical IQ means what exactly?


      November 22, 2015 at 7:56 pm

      • When you say it like that, you make me wonder what a “wider vocal range” is supposed to mean.


        November 23, 2015 at 6:34 pm

  10. “I think it would have been much better if the ex-boyfriend was Asian. Asian men could really use a boost to their self-esteem.”

  11. Oh. First time I saw it. Thought it was a cover of this equally insipid tune:


    November 22, 2015 at 4:25 pm

  12. When did unbearable caterwauling become the go-to musical style? I blame “American Idol.”

    I cannot stand Adele’s “music” for more than ten seconds. Simply ghastly.

    Naturally, the boyfriend is black. There has been a very big ramp-up in portraying inter-racial relationships the past year or two. It’s everywhere now.


    November 22, 2015 at 4:48 pm

    • Did she realy have a black boyfriend, or is it just a clip?


      November 22, 2015 at 9:16 pm

  13. Lion, I hope you are trolling. She is a good singer, but the clip is trash. Kathy Perry sings poorly. No real meaning to these songs. This is quite good.

    Reminiscent of Edith Piaf. She was sold out in Russia anywhere she went.


    November 22, 2015 at 5:34 pm

  14. And here is Edith Piaf with my favorite song, which she dedicated to the French Foreign Legion after the failed Algerian uprizing.



    November 22, 2015 at 5:41 pm

  15. Absolutely amazing Portuguese Fado by Christina Branco. The words, the music, the performance. Bravo!


    November 22, 2015 at 6:02 pm

  16. Lion, have you checked out Jessica Jones on Netflix. No asian there either. Lot of asian/white nerds sighing for that one..


    November 22, 2015 at 6:09 pm

  17. Idiot Ben Carson now 3rd in Iowa! Something good came of the whole Paris massacre. Can’t wait till Carson is gone.

    If you want to see the left in full meltdown mode over Trump, read this post and the comments:

    • Remarkably similar to right wing kooks. They are convinced some kind of Armageddon is approaching, they despise democracy, they believe the media is completely biased, they believe that some kind of ultra elite is manipulating public opinion, they are completely reliant on emotive arguments and uninterested in facts. It is impossible for them to accept that their opponents might be arguing in some good faith basis or that rational debate should be the basis for public policy.


      November 22, 2015 at 9:26 pm

      • Right wing kooks are right though, the elite really is against them. Left wing kooks are on another planet.

        Some of these idiots seriously think that the refugee crisis will politically HURT the Republicans!

  18. Daily Mail – ‘He made me hold my babies while he killed them’: Mother reveals how she was forced to watch her boyfriend shoot their twin girls dead before killing her father

    Gawain Wilson, 28, shot his five-month-old twin daughters, his girlfriend and her father before shooting himself in Jacksonville, Florida…

    • So what’s the problem?


      November 22, 2015 at 8:45 pm

  19. The only one here who understands music is Yakov. He forgot Piaf’s Hymne à L’Amour, however.


    November 22, 2015 at 9:39 pm

    • I heard Kathy Perry and a lot of trash on construction sites. Also a lot of good Latin music, though. Rap, oh that was the worst!


      November 22, 2015 at 11:01 pm

  20. A fat white girl shaped like Grimace dumping a black guy — that’s quite hilarious.

    Asian men could really use a boost to their self-esteem.

    Seriously though, why should East Asian men feel bad? — hypothetically, China, Japan, and South Korea can flatten any African country with negligible casualties. And let’s not even get started on how richer and more complex East Asian cultures are.

  21. Who the hello asked you to review an Adele video?

  22. ‘I confess that I also enjoyed the video by that Korean guy a lot more.’

    Agree, that was a smart song, actually.


    November 22, 2015 at 10:53 pm

  23. Lion, do you think Trump is stumped after his retweet of wildly inaccurate interracial murder stats? It’s one thing to insult Muslims and illegal immigrant invaders, but even conservatives get touchy at unnecessary insults to our founding stock black population. As disgusted as Republicans are at #blacklivesmatter, few of us want to return to the race riots of the 1960s.


    November 22, 2015 at 11:16 pm

  24. It’s usually not the case that blacks fall in love, their sexuality is more sensual. They also have little compassion with animals, and almost no love for nature, as can be read in german anthropologist Andreas Vonderach’s “Völkerpsychologie”.


    November 22, 2015 at 11:58 pm

    • That explains why I seldom see blacks in the NYC parks.

      • I hear they frequent the northeast side of Prospect Park.

        E. Rekshun

        November 23, 2015 at 5:25 am

      • There is a drummers’ gallery in Prospect Park. On a good day you have a few dozen negros drumming away and a crowd watching and doing tribal dancing. I’ve seen women getting so excited by the beat that they would try to go topless there. My friend saw Mexicans playing soccer drunk and stark naked. There is a lot of diversity in the park, I dunno how I’d missed it. Maybe you go at weird hours?


        November 23, 2015 at 5:39 pm

    • So what are all those blues/soul/RnB musicians singing about?


      November 23, 2015 at 1:20 am

  25. Self-actualizers (most from top out of sight class) usually do not give a shit to social validation (from media, or mass). Well if you are at top position like a king, certainly you can do that.
