Adele responds to David Bowie producer: “Suck my dick”

on June 11, 2016, 2:23pm

Adele has hit back at Tony Visconti, the acclaimed producer known for his work with the late David Bowie.

In an interview with The Daily Mirror, Visconti insinuated that Adele’s vocals could be “manipulated.” “You turn the radio on and it’s fluff, you are listening to 90% computerized voices,” he said. “We know Adele has a great voice but it’s even questionable if that is actually her voice or how much has been manipulated. We don’t know.”

Adele addressed Visconti’s criticisms during a recent concert. “Some dickhead tried to say that my voice was not me on record,” she told fans. “Dude, suck my dick.”

Update: Visconti has apologized to Adele in a statement provided to Billboard: “I’m sorry that what I said in regards to what’s being played on radio was misconstrued yet I cannot apologize for something taken the wrong way. If Adele has taken my comments as offensive that was certainly not my intent. Adele has a great voice and it brings pleasure to millions.”
