The British superstar has done the impossible once again -- "set fire to the rain," if you will -- somehow making us love her even more than we already did. As if we really need to explain to you why Adele is perhaps the most epic star on the charts right now, here are 25 reasons why we LOVE Adele, (in honor of '25,' of course).
