Adele to take 5 years off from music to concentrate on love life
London: Adele, who recently won six awards at the Grammys, has revealed that she plans to take a five-year break to focus on her relationship.
After her Grammy triumph, ‘The Rolling in the Deep’ hitmaker wants to focus on spending time with new beau Simon Konecki because when she had prioritised her career in the past it has led to heartbreak.
“I am f***ing off for four or five years. If I am constantly working, my relationships fail,” the Daily Mail quoted the singer as telling Vogue Magazine.
“So at least now I can have enough time to write a happy record. And be in love and be happy.
“And then I don’t know what I’ll do. Get married. Have some kids. Plant a nice vegetable patch.’
The 23-year-old singer said that she is “wifey material” because she likes to cook, laugh and enjoys sex, but she was also honest about her shortcomings.
“I love a bit of drama. That’s a bad thing. I can flip really quickly.
“I am not bipolar, but I go from, ‘Oh, my God, I love you’ to, ‘Get the f**k out of my house!’ really quickly. And I never sit there and talk about it. I give them the silent treatment.
“They’re like, ‘Tell me what I’ve done so I can say sorry!’ What else? It used to be that I loved a drink a bit too much. But I don’t drink no more.
“The good things: I am attentive. I will do anything for my man. I am a good cook. I’m funny. Always want to have sex - Well, most girls don’t!” she said.
The Adele that people know through her music is sombre, but she said that she is actually quite upbeat and optimistic, refusing to let fans hear her sad side anymore.
“I’m never writing a breakup record again, by the way.
“I’m done with being a bitter witch,” she said.
Even though she plans to shut her past, she is also at a point where she does not necessarily forgive the ex who inspired ‘21’, but she acknowledges that she is grateful for the experience she had with him.
“He was amazing. He was great. But it was never going to work.
“And for ages, I was like, ‘As if he deserves any f**** kudos for inspiring my record.’
“But now, after some time, it only seems right that the person who so far has had the biggest impact on me – has now changed my life for f**** ever with this album – deserves a little credit.
“I think I’d still be that little girl I was when I was 18 ... I now know what I want for myself and from someone else. I didn’t know what I wanted before,” she said.
