ADELE: NO TIME TO BE COOL

Adele says she’s been so busy singing nursery rhymes to her new baby son that “I don’t really remember what’s cool and what’s not.”

Still, she was cool enough to add another Grammy to last year’s six-award sweep when she won Sunday night for pop vocal performance for “Set Fire to the Rain (Live).”

That may have to hold her for a while.

She’s set to perform her Golden Globe-winning song from the James Bond film “Skyfall” at the Oscars in a couple weeks, and says she’s been so busy she’s had little time to work on her new album.

“I’m not very far along at all,” Adele confessed backstage at the Grammy Awards. “I’ve been out of the loop really.”
