Lionel Richie has responded to those comparisons between his 1983 hit song and Adele's recent release.

The internet has been going crazy since Adele released the video for her brand new single 'Hello' and it's easy to see why.

Many people questioned her use of an outdated flip-phone instead of a smart phone, with critics pointing out that Adele could CERTAINLY afford an up-to-date device.

People also jumped on Adele's unusual tea-making technique.

In the video, the singer puts the tea bag into the cup AFTER the hot water and this seems to go against how the majority make their brew!
