Adele became a quadruple threat in the eyes of the Guinness World Record committee. She's the first female singer to have two singles and two albums in U.K. top five simultaneously -- a feat previously achieved by The Beatles in 1963. Adele also holds solo female records for the most consecutive weeks at the UK No.1, with 11 weeks at the top, and most cumulative weeks at the UK No. 1, with 16 weeks, for "21." Also, she won a fourth honor for "21," which was named the UK's biggest-selling digital album of all-time, because she sold 320,339 copies in the first 51 days after its release on Jan. 24, 2011.

(CBS) Adele is on the road to recovery. The British singer is feeling better after undergoing throat surgery last week in Boston.
"I'm doing really well, on the mend, super happy, relaxed and very positive with it all," Adele wrote on her blog. "The operation was a success and I'm just chilling out now until I get the all clear from my doctors."
The 23-year-old songstress thanked fans for their support, adding, "I best get back to practicing my mime show now."
Adele had throat surgery to stop a recurrent condition that caused her to cancel tour dates and promotional appearances for the rest of the year. The operation was expected to stop recurrent bleeding from a benign polyp.
Adele has been nominated for four People's Choice Awards including favorite female artist, favorite song of the year, favorite album of the year and favorite music video. The 39th annual event will take place on Jan. 11.
