Stars remember the former South African president
Adele - worth £20m.
Adele has had one heck of a successful year - we all know this, that's for sure. Over the last 18 months, her songs have been played more than any artist on radio stations across the world and her sales of her album 21 have reached over 20million. She's also bagged herself a handful of Grammy and Brit awards. Not too shabby for the shy girl from Tottenham who penned her record-breaking album after a shattering break-up.
This success has seen her rocket up the Sunday Times Rich List for UK stars under the age of 30 - in 2011 Adele was worth £6m, but the 23-year-old's wealth has more than trebled to an incredible £20m, making her top the list of young music artists in the UK.
Browse the gallery to find out which other British stars under the age of 30 boast incredible wealth... some of them are even richer than Adele!

£20 million, for what? Singing? You see how out of whack reality is right now, those who contribute the least to humanity get the biggest pay packets. While the majority of the people in the UK struggle to earn a living busting their butts to pay the mortgage, increasing fuel prices, food, utilities people are swooning over celebrities who get paid huge paypackets for doing nothing of real benefit for us. And I haven't even spoken about the billions of poor who live on less than £1 a day! You worship footballers (make a million because you can kick a ball?), singers (make a million because you can hold a note?), musicians (make a million because you can string some notes together?), actors and actresses (make a million because you can make believe and put on a silly accent?), what exactly are we worshipping? We should pitty these poor fools for selling out to a satanic Hollywood, music and fashion industry that is in league with the controllers of this global fiefdom and will stop at nothing to keep you physically, mentally and spiritually enslaved.
MSN classes £20 million as incredible wealth, but what is £20 million? £20,000,000 on a computer screen? £20,000,000 in fiat currency? Its totally worthless. You can't go to the Bank of England and exchange £20 note for anything other than another £20 note. Do you know what the real currency of this planet is? Love and appreciation. You know why? Here's a little test, do something beneficial for someone, something little like washing up for them, or cooking them a meal. When they say "thank you", you get a positive vibrational boost ... that feeling improves your wellbeing, your life and benefits you much more than a fist full of paper could ever do...
Do you know who deserves real celebration? Those of you that contribute to the betterment of humanity. Anyone who flows with nature instead of against it. Anyone bringing no harm to others or anything. Those people that go that extra mile to help someone in need. They deserve true celebration. You know this is true, so why do you waste your time and energy worshipping such trivial vocations as kicking a ball, holding a note, stringing some notes together, make believe and put on a silly voice? You can be much better than that. Do you know if you put as much time and energy into freeing yourself from enslavement as you do in worshipping these fake idols, fake gods and celebrities you could be living a life of luxury as was intended for you instead of watching others, wishing, hoping and dreaming.
The only thing you can change in this world is yourself and your thoughts and actions and by changing yourself to the positive, becoming the best that you can be it won't take too long before everyone is the best that they can be. The alternative is if you continue to live the life of a slave, then enslavement is all your children and grand children will inherit. Let me tell you now, its time for us all to say I'M MAD AS HELL AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!
I'm just going to keep buying my weekly lottery ticket and hope for the best.
hi comment to allstars - what is chunky as you put it got to do with her singing voice - you dont make £20m standing busking on the street - people pay to hear and see her sing so it aint her fault the money floods in as she can force anyone to buy into her
This is what this drivel publicity says to me. Truly sickening.
What a vile system....Jeez....can you smell that?
This is like throwing mud in your face when you're already down. No disrespect to the singer but the journo's who are writing this are not very respectful. The country is in the mire, most people are really struggling, the cost of living has increased, people are losing jobs with no way back in, and these journo's are going on about the wealthy few. Do they really think people want to read that.
I think if people had the choice they would rather not hear about how many millions someone is making. It is really insulting in these times! Yes - Revolution!
What can I say Adele, please don't take any notice of any of the negative comments hun.
Its the old humanistic cliche my girl, people are jealous.You have a great talent, your music comes from the heart, and has great natural feeling..You acknowledged your dear mum, that tells us you have not forgotten your roots. You have a mum who i so, so proud of you. Enjoy your good fortune ,i know in my heart you will do good with it in many ways. Keep penning those songs.. Hey!!!! carry on being yourself, never loose that. But do try to watch your language with young people who look up to you and really think you are a .
Who cares what she's worth?
She's a fantastic talent and worth every penny. NOT LIKE SOME ON THE LIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm really surprised Adele is worth this much and I don't think they have got their sums right. Musicians usually earn the majority of their money through touring and, as she had to pull out of her last tour, that would have affected her income considerably. Nevertheless, she is a lovely performer and has written some great tracks and deserves all the success she has achieved.
Steve: people split up all the time (especially at that age) and her ex is supposedly happily married. Adele is in a new relationship - so that means they are both content. I call that a happy ending without regrets.
These comments arent a personal attack on adele Susie Alderson, she is actually not a good example of what people are on about, as she does actually have some talent. What concerns people more is the state of society in general and those who make mega bucks for contributing zilch to society... Revolution ASAP please.
