Adele’s new album ’25’ sounds like a more mature album than ’21,’ and at least part of that likely reflects the singer’s own maturation. She admits that becoming a mother forced her to grow up. Join the club, Adele! Her son Angelo is three years old.
At the beginning of her song ‘Rolling In The Deep,’ a childlike voice can be heard. Adele explained:
That’s my son. The song is all about my kid. The way I’ve described it is that something much bigger has happened in my life. I love that my life is now about someone else.”
That, in essence, sums up parenthood, doesn’t it? You are no longer the center of your life: someone else is.
Adele said this about becoming a mother:
That’s the main reason I’ve grown up.”
She admitted, however, that it wasn’t easy to be focused on someone else all the time.
I hope as he gets older, I have a little me time as well.”
You can have some if you make the time for it, Adele ;). One thing her fans should not expect, however, is to see little Angelo on the red carpet.
I don’t want that for (Angelo) until he can start making his own decisions. Right now he can choose if he wants a bag of crisps or a banana, but he can’t make a choice about being in the public eye. If when he’s 16 he wants to be known for being my child, he can do that. But right now he’s very much a minor, and we have vowed to make that decision for him.
“It’s hard enough for being a kid anyway, let alone being a famous person’s kid. Imagine the first time that I find out he smokes, and he’s older, that there’s a photograph of it. Or what if he’s gay and someone takes a photo of him kissing a man? That’s his life, and I’d hate my life getting in the way of his. But if he wanted something in the public eye later, I wouldn’t get in the way. He’s the love of my life and I’ll support him in whatever he wants to do.”
I think that’s a smart choice. The loss of privacy has to be tough for the kids of celebrities, especially as they get a little older. I certainly wouldn’t have wanted a paparazzo following me around when I was a teenager ;).
