More than just rumor has it, folks:

Adele is close to making her comeback!

Via the official World Music Awards Twitter account, the singer appears to have announced that she will soon release a new album and also going on tour to support it.

With her first two albums titled "19" and "21,” based on her age when she recorded them, Adele is set to release "25."

Kelly Clarkson wants a baby. ASAP. Two babies, actually. Adele, however, has advised her fellow songbird to hold her horses. Or her ovaries. You know, whichever.

Adele apparently told Kelly "Girl, don't have a baby, 'cause everything else will go on the back burner! I'm living in babyland!" while the two chatted at the Grammys this year.

Kelly, who married music manager Brandon Blackstock in October, says she's ready for a family. In fact, they are trying like rabbits to make it happen.

"Brandon has two kids and I want two more!" the original American Idol said in an interview with the Daily Mail (UK). "My eggs aren't getting young!"

Adele has made more music history.

For the first time since Nielsen Soundscan began tracking album sales in 1990, the same record has repeated as the highest-selling CD in the country.

And that honor falls to Adele's unstoppable "21," which outsold Taylor Swift's "Red" by about 1.3 million units.

Adele at the Mic

"It's a sort of a once-in-a-lifetime album," Billboard's Director of Charts Keith Caulfield told Reuters. "Only a few of these albums come along in history ... It's really the right combination of artistry and hit singles ... because of its mixture of fans, she was able to sell it as well as she did."

James Bond is rather ostentatious.

Adele simply sings.

On the surface, these famous Brits aren't especially alike, with one significant exception: both excelt at the job. They are the best of the best.

Which makes it appropriate for Adele to join the likes of Paul McCartney, Nancy Sinatra and Carly Simon by providing the latest theme song for this franchise. Listen to her "Skyfall" track now:

Another day, another honor for Adele.

The Emmy-winning, chart-topping artist will sing the theme song for this November's Skyfall, Movie Fanatic reports, taking her place in history as the latest musician to play a role in the James Bond franchise.

Adele as a Winner

Adele - who will also reportedly write the track - joins the ranks of other icons to lend their vocal to 007, including Shirley Bassey, Nancy Sinatra, Carly Simon, Paul McCartney and Duran Duran.

Skyfall, meanwhile, will once again feature Daniel Craig in the lead role and come out on 11/9/12.

No one is crediting Adele for saving a young girl's life ... but she helped.

Charlotte Neve, 7, suffered a brain hemorrhage that left her in a coma last year. Doctors had just about given up on the girl and told her family to say her goodbyes.

That's when a miracle, or the closest explainable thing to it, happened.

Adele, Neve

As Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" – one of Charlotte's favorite songs – came on the radio, Neve's mom Leila began to sing it to Charlotte … and she smiled.

"I absolutely couldn't believe it," Neve told The Telegraph (UK).

"It was the first time she had reacted to anything since the hemorrhage. The nurses were astounded and told me to keep singing, and she smiled again."

Within a few days, Charlotte, who suffered several strokes since her brain hemorrhage, was able to get out of bed. Following physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and some speech therapy, the fighter was even ready to go home.

"It was like she was rebooting," recalls Leila Neve. "She was allowed to come home for the weekend and the first thing she said was 'home sweet home.'"

Although the British youngster has been left with some blindness and memory loss, she has since enrolled in dance class and is attending school again.

"Charlotte has been brilliant," said the elder Neve.

"She is so determined and brave. The doctors have stopped telling us what she should be able to do – because she has amazed them so much."

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 ...

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.

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.
