Trains are always late, most state schools are s**t, and I’ve gotta give you, like, four million quid – are you having a laugh?” She continued, “When I got my tax bill in from 19, I was ready to go and buy a gun and randomly open fire.”

Adele may be peeved about the taxman, but her fans are starting to get peeved at her.  There have been all sorts of anti-Adele rants on Twitter.  Just try doing a search for “Adele” and “Taxes”:
