The ’25’ singer explained:
I feel like some artists — and this isn’t shading any artist, just me trying to come up with my own explanation — the bigger they get, the more horrible they get, and the more unlikable.
“And I don’t care if you make an amazing album — if I don’t like you, I ain’t getting your record. I don’t want you being played in my house if I think you’re a b**tard.”
Well, now, Adele: tell us how you really feel, why don’t you- LOL?
Adele also pointed out the dangers of over-exposure.
I’m not throwing shade at anybody, but when you have a six-month build up, don’t expect me to be there the day your album comes out, because I’m bored. It doesn’t matter how amazing it is. You put seven songs out. I’ve heard the album. I’ve heard everything you want to say about it. I’ve heard it all over radio. Don’t expect me to not lose interest before it’s even happened.”
She’s got a point there. When I hear about a new project, I want to be able to buy it. If I have to wait, I’m very likely to forget it. I wondered if it was old age on my part, but given that Adele is 27, maybe not!
Adele also speculated on her own popularity, although she admitted she doesn’t really know.
The fact that I’m not shy or embarrassed to be falling apart. Everyone falls apart, I think. A lot of people try to be brave and not shed a tear. Sometimes when you know someone else feels as sh–ty as you do, or approaches things in a certain way just like you do, it makes you feel better about yourself. Even though my music is melancholy, there’s also joy in that. I hope I do bring joy to people’s lives, and not just sadness, but I think there’s there’s a comfort in it. But I honestly don’t know. If I knew, I would bottle it, and sell it to everyone else.”
That would make her the wealthiest person on the planet! I love how Adele keeps it real: don’t you?
