Back in March, Don McLean seemingly took Adele to task for postponing her Las Vegas residency. During an interview, McLean claimed artists today were all “rich and very spoiled,” and that they didn’t care about their audience.
McLean has clarified his comments, saying he wasn’t badmouthing Adele.
Don said to BANG Show Biz, “I did an interview and I was talking about artists that don’t respect their audience.” He added, “And somehow it got conflated with a remark I made, which was not a critical remark, about Adele cancelling her show in Vegas.”
He also said, “I didn’t slam Adele. I know she didn’t want to cancel, I know she’s a serious performer – I don’t even know the circumstances even of what happened there,” adding, “That was something a person did to get a headline… I don’t do that. I don’t go around saying things about other people like that.”
