We all knew Adele because of heart-wrenching ballads but with her latest album ?25?, the British singer made sure that it wasn?t another break-up record. In her recent interview on 60 Minutes Australia, she revealed some details about her relationship with boyfriend Simon Konecki with whom she has a three-year old son named Angelo.
“Being in such an amazing relationship with someone that’s so there for me and so loyal and is really part of my core now, that’s what made me write about everything I’ve ever done, because I’ve got his love,” she said and admitted that Konecki served as inspiration for a couple of her songs.
“I know that sounds a bit like I’m trying to write a Hollywood movie,” she said, “but it’s only because of him and because of our kid and stuff that I’m all right.”
The singer admitted her fear of not being able to meet the expectations of the public after the staggering success of her album ?21?, which sold 30 million records. Motherhood and having her two boys have helped her grow into the woman we know hear on ?25?.
“I’ve had boys all my life, and it’s so much better if you have a man. Boys are insecure; they can’t keep up with me. When you have a proper man, it’s different. Nothing fazes him. I love him,? she told USA Today about Konecki.
“My whole life, even this comeback — because that’s what it is ? is built around my kid.?One of the scariest things about my new album is that, for the first time in my life, I’m looking into the future, into the next 20 years. Before it was all about what you’d do on Friday, plans for the weekend,? she added.
?That’s the main reason I’ve grown up, ” Adele said of her son. “I hope as he gets older, I have a little me time as well,” she mused.
Adele?s comeback single “Hello” smashed records by selling more than 1.1 million digital songs in the first week and becoming the first song ever to break the 1 million download mark on the Billboard charts. The song ?When We Were Young? was shown on the clip of her 60 Minutes interview and the full live version is now up on YouTube.
