Adele's Favorite Breakup Songs Aren't Her Own, but They'll Still Make You Cry

28 June 2016 4:05 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It would be hard to find someone who hasn't listened (and cried) to Adele's music when they're going through a split, but it turns out that the certified queen of breakup tunes (aside from, like, Kelly Clarkson) doesn't blast her own work when she's grieving the end of a relationship. As she explained to People, she does "mope around for a little while," adding, "I do embrace the fact that I'm heartbroken. I don't move on quickly. I don't know if that's because it seems that I'm only really creative when I'm a bit momentarily depressed." During this routine, she listens to emotional tunes from Etta James and Bonnie Raitt, as well as fellow Brits Mumford & Sons, Florence and the Machine, and David Gray. Check out her expert picks below. »

18 April 2016 7:27 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Like Christina Aguilera executing a run during a contestant’s rehearsal package, or Blake Shelton spiking the comedic volleyball in Adam Levine’s face (over and over again), The Voice‘s Alisan Porter is pretty much perfect.

20 Wedding Songs to Skip Unless You Want Your Wedding to Be Like Everyone Else's

21 March 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Everyone thinks their wedding is the most beautiful, the most creative, and the most fun - but according to Spotify's 2015 wedding music statistics, first dance songs and reception playlists are pretty much the same across the globe. The music streaming service released its findings over the Summer with a list of 20 songs that are the most popular globally. Not surprisingly, John Legend's ballad "All of Me" is the top choice for tying the knot, while Jason Mraz is a favorite for first dances. When it comes to the songs that get guests out on the dance floor, the most played reception songs include Bruno Mars's "Marry You," Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud," and even "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke. It's not all new radio hits that made the list, though, as "At Last" by Etta James and "Can't Help Falling In Love" by Elvis Presley are also popular old-school choices. »
