Just how lovely was Adele's birthday?
The British chanteuse, who turned 24 on Saturday, has been sporting a nearly 11-carat diamond ring since the Brit Awards in February. And rumor has it that the bauble was actually an engagement ring, and now she and beau Simon Konecki are gearing up to tie the knot!
But is Adele, whose previous "rubbish relationship" inspired the Grammy-winning tunes of 21, really ready to take the plunge? Should we be expecting a lovey-dovey record from the breakup queen any day now?
Hang onto your teasing combs, mates, because this story is...
"Had a lovely birthday, thanks for all the messages," the 24-year-old songbird tweeted today. "I got a blossom tree! I didn't get a cake from Rih Rih & I'm not engaged, blah blah x."
And if you were wondering whether Rihanna sent Adele a cake, well, there you go.
In the more factual realm, Adele leads all comers heading into the 2012 Billboard Music Awards—which tallies album and single sales—as a finalist in 18 categories, including Top Artist, Top Female Artist and Top Billboard 200 Artist.
