Adele says she was disappointed by women’s comments about her 100lb weight loss | Daily Mail Online

The British superstar has opened up in two candid interviews with British Vogue and American Vogue both available now. 


On her divorce from Simon Konecki: ‘I was just going through the motions and I wasn’t happy. Neither of us did anything wrong. Neither of us hurt each other or anything like that. It was just: I want my son to see me really love, and be loved. It’s really important to me. I’ve been on my journey to find my true happiness ever since.’

On their son Angelo: ‘There were a few older girls who chased him around, asking if I was his mom. He was just like: ‘I think her name’s Adele, yeah. My mom. My mom.’ I’m not Adele to him. He felt like he was being bullied, because they were annoying him. I said: ‘That’s not bullying. Just say, Yeah, she’s my mom. She wiped my ass,’ she jokes.

On finding love with Rich Paul: ‘Rich just incredibly arrived. I don’t feel anxious or nervous or frazzled. It’s quite the opposite. It’s wild. I’m a 33-year-old divorced mother of a son, who’s actually in charge. The last thing I need is someone who doesn’t know where they’re at, or what they want. I know what I want. And I really know what I don’t want.’

On her weight loss: ‘It was because of my anxiety. Working out, I would just feel better. It was never about losing weight, it was always about becoming strong and giving myself as much time every day without my phone. I got quite addicted to it. I work out two or three times a day. So I do my weights in the morning, then I normally hike or I box in the afternoon, and then I go and do my cardio at night. I was basically unemployed when I was doing it. And I do it with trainers.’

On reconnecting with her father: ‘We actually got our peace, again contrary to reports. I played him my album just a week before he passed, over Zoom. One thing that definitely happened in my divorce was that it humanised my parents for me. Big time. I went to hell and back! And in that I found the peace to forgive him. He was ready to go and he lasted a long time with it. So thank you.’

On Amy Winehouse: ‘I got really famous right as Amy Winehouse died. And we watched her die right in front of our eyes. It really offended me. I picked up the guitar because of Amy’s first album. She means the most to me out of all artists. Because she was British. Because she was amazing. Because she was tortured. Because she was so funny.’

On winner her 2017 Grammy over Beyoncé: ‘My personal opinion is that Beyoncé definitely should have won. I just said to her, like, the way that the Grammys works, and the people who control it at the very, very top – they don’t know what a visual album is. They don’t want to support the way that she’s moving things forward with her releases and the things that she’s talking about.’

On her new album 30: ‘I feel like this album is self-destruction, then self-reflection and then sort of self-redemption. But I feel ready. I really want people to hear my side of the story this time. I assumed it would be about my divorce but it’s kind of not.’
