Washington: Adele has revealed that much of the lyrical inspiration for her critically acclaimed hit album ‘21’ came from the drunken diary entries she wrote in the aftermath of a difficult break up.
“I started drinking again. I’d been off it for six months but once I started I’d get drunk and end up admitting things to myself in my diary,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling Q magazine.
“Later, when I was sober, I’d read through it all. The songs, the emotions, were all in there,” she added.
Despite the awards success the 23-year-old singer has received for ‘21’, she insists she doesn’t want it to be the album which defines her career because she feels she still has a lot to offer and wants to be able to try different things with her music.
