Street-Porter said that, during Adele’s early career, she was “adorable, brash, loud, madly enthusiastic”.

Some commenters on MailOnline agreed with Street-Porter. The top comment, with over 6,000 likes, reads: “Adele needs to stick to music and stop the incessant whining and wokery. It's got really boring now.”
Another comment, branding Adele a “stereotypical diva”, has received almost 3,000 likes.
