British Grammy award-winning singer, Adele, is eyeing Jamaica for her next vacation.
With news of Adele being the voice behind the theme song for the new Bond movie Skyfall, the artiste has also revealed that she has interest in visiting the tropical island.
According to the reports, Adele, pregnant with her first child, discovered a love of all things Bond and has said she would love to visit the Jamaican home of Ian Fleming, writer of the 007 books, after she gives birth.
A source told The Sun: ‘After working on the new Bond theme for over a year, Adele can’t get enough of the series.
‘She came across Ian Fleming’s house when she was researching the spy series and now has her heart set on going there. Whether it’ll be suitable for her and a new baby, who knows, but she at least wants to visit.’
Bond was dreamed up by Fleming in February 1952, at the holiday villa near the village of Oracabessa in Jamaica.
All 14 Bond novels were written there and Fleming famously began his first 007 book, Casino Royale with the line: ‘The scent and smoke and sweat of a casino are nauseating at three in the morning’.
Fleming’s old estate is now owned by Jamaican hotel group Island Outpost, which was founded by Chris Blackwell – the man who ‘ discovered’ Bob Marley and helped spread his music across the globe.
Adele’s made her presence felt on the music scene in 2008 with the album entitled 19 named for her age and featured two hit singles Hometown Glory and Chasing Pavement. The follow-up album 21netted her an armful of Grammy Awards and hit singles, Set Fire to the Rain and Rolling in the Deep.
