Oprah can’t decide who is a Icon. That status is earned over a long period of sustainability. Give it another 10 years or so to judge that. Yes, Adele is releasing her 4th album. Im judging on 3 she has released to date. Don’t get me wrong I love Adele as much as anyone but it seems Icon is thrown out there loosely now day. Is Ed Sheeran a Icon? He has double the subscribers as Adele on Spotify. Just giving us something to talk about since we don’t get anything from the MJ Estate.Adele's on her fourth album and she's sold several million albums. In fact,21 outsold Thriller in the UK,which was a monumental accomplishment for her. She's definitely an icon and somebody whose stuck to their guns with the music she makes,not following the trends of modern top-40 radio where everything sounds the same. Although I don't like Oprah either,she's correct in asserting Adele as an icon and I love both Adele & MJ.
