Adele nose job rumors have been running rampant online.

We don't know if she's gotten one or not, and Ashley Judd would be pissed that we're even asking, but photos that suggest she may have had work done.

The 23-year-old singer may be quite comfortable in her own skin, but she may have also changed one of her features. We're not judging, just saying.

Check out these Adele photos from 2012 and 2008 ...

It could be that the British fan favorite simply lost weight, which clearly is the case over the past 3-4 years, and her nose looks more slender as a result.

Or not. Some surgeons say the tip is more defined, which indicates reshaping the lower cartilage of the nose by reducing its width and repositioning it.

She's made a name for herself on talent either way, and isn't about to lose any fans regardless of whether she had work done. But it makes you wonder.

What do you think of Adele's new look? Do you think she got plastic surgery? Does Adele look better or worse? Does it even matter?

Adele covers are a dime a dozen, but young Makena may take the cake.

When we say young, that's an understatement ... she's two years old!

The cute toddler's mom was there to capture her belting out a rendition of the British chanteuse's heartfelt hit “Someone Like You,” and Makena nailed it!

Watch the viral video of her version, which has become a sensation a la Sophia Grace Brownlee, below. Bet Adele never tried this on the kitchen counter ...

How do you know when you're an internationally beloved superstar? When you raise your middle figure on stage at an awards show, and that awards show issues you an apology!

On Tuesday night at the BRIT Awards, Adele had just stepped up to receive the trophy for Best Album when her acceptance speech was cut short. She responded by flipping the proverbial bird, a move she later explained was directed at producers, not the fans. See for yourself:

And those producers feel very badly about their decision, having just released the following statement:

"We regret this happened and we send our deepest apologies to Adele that her big moment was cut short this evening due to the live show over-running. We don't want this to undermine her incredible achievement in winning our night's biggest award. It tops off what's been an incredible year for her."

That's for certain. Adele's "#21" set a record this week by finishing on top of the Billboard 200, for the 21st consecutive time.

Even the late Whitney Houston was unable to oust Adele from the #1 spot on the Billboard album chart, as the UK singer's album set a new high water mark this week.

Adele's album, 21, fittingly took the top spot for a record 21st straight week. The previous title holder at 20 weeks? The Bodyguard soundtrack, by Whitney Houston.

21 is now the longest running No. 1 album by a woman.

Adele with a Trophy

Boosted by her six Grammy awards and performance comeback, Adele's 21 saw its best sales in 52 weeks on the U.S. chart, selling 730,000 copies just last week.

21 features hits "Rolling in the Deep" and "Someone Like You" and has now sold over 18 million copies worldwide since its release in Feb. 2011, Columbia Records said.

The 23-year-old singer/songwriter also saw a surge in sales for her debut album, 19, which sold 87,000 copies, while Houston has seen major posthumous sales.

Seven of Houston's albums re-entered the Billboard chart this week, led by Whitney: The Greatest Hits compilation at No. 2, selling an impressive 175,000 copies.

Her self-titled album sold 17,000 to take the 37th spot. Houston's "I Will Always Love You" single took the No. 2 spot in the Billboard Digital Songs Chart.

Who knew M.I.A. had anything in common with Adele?

After being honored with Best Album at the Brit Awards tonight on London, this beloved superstar barely started her acceptance speech when host James Cordon interrupted her to introduce 90s British pop band Blur. The crowd booed, and Adele did this:

"I flung the middle finger," she later told the BBC. "That was for the suits at the Brit Awards, not my fans. I'm sorry if I offended anyone but the suits offended me."

Adele spent most of the night cuddling up to boyfriend Simon Konecki, with the exception of her other time on stage, when she belted out a rendition of "Rolling in the Deep." Watch it below.

In the latest issue of Vogue, despite the impression she might give on her blockbuster album, Adele says she's "bubbly and carefree."

Unless the subject turns to her father, that is.

In just-released excerpts from her interview with the magazine, Adele addresses dad Mark Evans, who recently sold a story to a tabloid in which he goes into detail about his split from Adele's mother.

Adele in Vogue

"He's f-cking blown it," Adele says. "He will never hear from me again. Because there is nothing that would upset me more than my dad being bribed by the press. It's like, 'Just let them run it, then. Don't you give them ammunition.'"

In the tabloid story, Evans even zeroes in on his daughter, speculating that her problems with men stem from his absence.

Adele is best known for her blockbuster hit, "Rolling in the Deep."

But was the singer once rolling in the hay... on camera?

Yes, a French tabloid hilariously claims, as the latest issue of Public is running a cover story that alleges Adele and the ex about whom she penned songs from the album "21" once pulled a Kim Kardashian/Ray J. The magazine even includes photos with the report.

Adele Sex Tape Headline

In response, Adele has hired Schillings law firm to represent her in a possibly lawsuit against the tabloid.

"We are informed that the French magazine Public has today published images which it claims show our client in a sex tape," one of Adele's attorney says. "Our client has not appeared in a sex tape as claimed in the article. Our client does not appear in the photographs. Such claims are grossly defamatory. Our client is taking legal action in relation to this matter."

Darn right. In this instance, rumor has it... wrong.

A mesmerizing Grammy act and an untimely death both played a major role in the latest Billboard 200 top 10.

Fresh off six wins and her first live performance since throat surgery (below), Adele sold 237,000 albums last week (resulted are tracked through Sunday night), a 95 percent increase from the previous seven days and enough to keep "21" atop the chart for the 20th week.

It has now moved 6.6 million copies.

Following Houston's passing, meanwhile, "Whitney: The Greatest Hits," sold 64,000 units, which represents an increase of, oh, 5,994 percent from the prior week. Expect this trend to continue for the foreseeable future, as it so often does in death.

Really, this is Adele's world. We just live in it.

The superstar dominated this weekend's Grammy Awards, taking home six trophies and returning from throat surgery to wow the crowd with a rendition of "Rolling in the Deep."

Now, Adele is looking beautiful on the cover of Vogue and reeling off one memorable soundbite after another. We've posted a number of them below...

Adele on Vogue

On performing: “I’m nervous whenever I perform. But seeing that it will be the first time opening my mouth again onstage in front of my peers? I’m shittin’ myself. You can see the fear behind my eyes... The more records I sell and the bigger this all gets, the bigger the shows get. It’s like a vicious cycle.”

On faults as a girlfriend: “I love a bit of drama. That’s a bad thing. I can flip really quickly. I am not bipolar, but I go from ‘Oh, my God, I love you’ to ‘Get the fuck out of my house!’ really quickly. And I never sit there and talk about it. I give them the silent treatment."

On pluses as a girlfriend: "I am attentive. I will do anything for my man. I am a good cook. I’m funny. Always want to have sex.”

On her personality: "People think that I'm f-cking miserable. They are really surprised when they meet me that I'm chatty and bubbly and kind of quite carefree really. I'm the total opposite of my records."

On her celebrity crush: "I love Alec Baldwin. Oh, my God, I've got the biggest crush on him in that film. He's so sexy."

On Beyonce: "She's been a huge and constant part of my life as an artist since I was about 10 or 11. I love how all of her songs are about empowerment. Even when she's married and Jay-Z put a ring on it, she releases 'Single Ladies.' Go get yours. Go get what you deserve. I think she's really inspiring."
