Australian reporter Matt Doran flew halfway around the word, from Sydney to London, to interview Adele about her new album, 30.
The interview was the only Australian network to score time with Adele, but it got bungled.
The Daily Telegraph reported that during their talk, after not being asked a single question about her new music, Adele asked Doran what he thought of her new album. He responded,
“I haven’t listened to it.”
Adele reportedly then walked out.
It seems that he hadn’t opened the email that was sent to give him a preview of her new songs. He explained
“It was an oversight but not a deliberate snub…
This is the most important email I have ever missed.”
Sony has since refused to release the footage of Doran’s half-hour interview with Adele. Australian media said the mishap had cost Channel 7 around $700,000.
Matt, here it is, just in case you haven’t heard it yet…
