Will Adele Vacation at James Bond Creator's Home?

Columbia RecordsNow that Adele is officially a "Bond Girl" -- having been tapped to write and sing the theme for the new James Bond flick Skyfall -- she's become a huge Bond fan. So much so that, reportedly, she plans to vacation at the home of the guy who created the character.

A source tells the British tabloid The Sun that Adele "can't get enough" of the Bond series.  While doing research, the source claims, the pregnant singer found out about Goldeneye, the Jamaican estate where, back in 1952, author Ian Fleming first came up with the idea of 007.  All 14 Bond novels that Fleming wrote were penned at Goldeneye, next to a stretch of sand now known as James Bond Beach.

Says the source, "[Adele]...now has her heart set on going there. Whether it’ll be suitable for her and a new baby, who knows, but she at least wants to visit.”

After Fleming's death, Goldeneye was owned by Island Records founder Chris Blackwell, who helped bring reggae music to the masses.  A Jamaican hotel group run by Blackwell is now the official owner of the property, which has expanded considerably into a tourist resort.
