Adele's Producer Struggled With Keeping 'Hello' A Secret
"Hello from the other side." Greg Kurstin is not going to lie, it was incredibly hard to keep his lips sealed while preparing Adele's current number 1 hit, "Hello". This week, Adele's producer sat down with the Associated Press for an interview where he revealed that he struggled keeping her hit single a secret for over a year. Not only did he produce the song, but he also cowrote it. "I'm not going to lie — it's not easy to hold that information in for that long," the Grammy and Golden Globe nominated songwriter-producer said. Since last Friday, "Hello" has topped number one on the iTunes charts in over 85 countries. It also beat the Vevo record for most views in one day with 27.7 million which is more than Taylor Swift's huge hit, Bad Blood. This is Adele's first single to be released in just under four years which helped boost some of the hype around the song. "You kind of want to shout it out, run around in the streets yelling to random strangers what you've just done," he joked. Kurstin has worked with Pink, Lily Allen, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and now Adele. He is the writer of famous pop hits, "Chandelier" by Sia, "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" by Kelly Clarkson, and "Burn" by Ellie Goulding. He was supposed to work with Adele on her past hit album '21' however it never fell into place. He did contribute to Adele's two songs within the upcoming album, "Water Under the Bridge" and "Million Years Ago". "I'm still in shock, honestly. I was just pretty blown away," Kurstin said about the success of the track. She's just so wonderful to be around. She is funny and she's just so down-to-earth...You can immediately relate to her and connect with her. I really felt very comfortable around her because she makes you feel that way. She's just cool, and then she gets on the microphone and of course blows your mind." Adele's album is set to debut November 20.
See The Best Adele Doppelgänger
Meet Adele 2.0 : Ellinor Helborg Is Adele on the left or the right? That's just how shockingly similar Adele and this fan look alike. Meet Eleanor Helborg, a 22-year-old from Sweden. The Adele doppelgänger has an Instagram full of Adele inspired makeup looks and it's extremely uncanny how she looks identical to the British pop superstar. Fans from around the world have flocked to Helborg's Instagram just to take a glimpse themselves. Her bio includes the comment, "like to put makeup on my face from time to time nothing weird about it". In this instance though, it's impressive at how transformative makeup can do to a person's face. Though Helborg said how much she adores Adele, Helborg stands as an individual. "I do not strive to look like her, or anyone else. I am my own person," Helborg wrote in a post,"I have my own face and I look like me. If you think I look like a certain person that's fine, but arguing about who I do or do not look like is pointless. Telling me or other people in the comments I don't look like Adele means nothing, because that is not who I am trying to be. I am my own person." After scrolling through these pictures, I believe her eyes are a huge selling point in her Adele appearance. From her thick eye liner to her contoured cheek bones, Helborg has mastered this look. Really though, Helborg could totally be a stunt double for Adele if Adele ever wanted to be in the movies. Or Helborg could start a business where people hire her to be Adele at birthday parties. She might as well milk it for all its worth. Do you think Helborg looks like Adele?

Ryan Seacrest dating former Miss Teen USA
Okay let's put the love aside, she's 14 years his junior, yes you read that correctly, FOURTEEN YEARS YOUNGER THAN HIM. That's quite a hefty jump. Ryan Seacrest is 40 and Hilary Cruz is 26. I don't know ; it just seems so odd for them to be together. Maybe she just likes him because he's the host of American Idol? They first met at Seacrest's 40th birthday bash where they partied along side some of the biggest A-listers in California : Kim and Khloé Kardashian, Randy Jackson, and Paula Abdul. The couple was sighted on a dinner date at West Hollywood's II Piccolino on May 10. They both obviously avoided paparazzi and there was no hand holding to be seen. She's a BABE. No doubt. Cruz won Miss Teen USA in 2007 to go on to appear in the TV movies Beautiful & Twisted and Sand Sharks. Unfortunately she hasn't been off to a good start in the public eye with only a mere 5446 followers on Instagram... a number that even an extremely popular high school student can achieve. However she is...Totes bae. Ryan Seacrest has been going through many girlfriends as of lately only fueling gay rumors even more. Many have been calling Hilary a very 'cute beard' to mask his sexual orientation. He dated Renee Hall in March. He also dated Shayna Taylor, and later split from Julianne Hough in March 2013 after relationship complications stemming from his hectic work schedule. Some comments regarding the relationship have been well....not so nice : "Who is he trying to kid? Unless she has as least one very good looking brother, this Miss Teen USA is probably of no real interest to Seacrest." "That poor girl! Imagine having to listen to that tool drone on for hours..." "Both of them are irrelevant." "What a hollywood perv, dating a girl who is young enough to be his daughter." "Seacrest is kinda creepy like a weird uncle." " I thought he was gay." "WHAT A BEAUTIFUL BEARD YOU HAVE THERE, RYAN." Do you see what I mean?
