Adele has reportedly trademarked her own name.

The Sun has revealed that the multi-million selling popstar has made sure that her name can't be used to sell perfume or jewellery without her consent.

A source told the tabloid paper: "She doesn't want anyone exploiting her name by using it on products which may trick punters into thinking she's involved with it."

Adele was recently named Entertainer Of The Year by the Associated Press.

The title is given annually to the person who had the most influence on entertainment and culture. Previous winners include Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and comedian Tina Fey.

Meanwhile, Adele's 'Someone Like You' was named as the most popular karaoke song of 2012 by karaoke company Lucky Voice. The track also entered the Co-Operative Funeralcare's chart of the top music played at funerals earlier this year.

Though she didn't release an album in 2012, Adele gave birth to her first child and recorded the theme to the latest Bond film, Skyfall. She also won six Grammy Awards and two Brit Awards.

Adele's record label, XL Recordings, have stated that they do not expect her to release the follow-up to the best-selling '21' for a while.

Speaking to The New York Times a spokesperson for the label said: "The next Adele album may not come for some years...".
