Opening up about things that hurt you are truly not easy but Adele put on her brave face and revealed everything that had been troubling the star for a while now. She talked about everything beginning from co-parenting, her weight loss, and excessive body trolling she received from internet trolls and a failed marriage. 

The English Singer made her debut on CBS on November 15 where she unveiled some very personal details of her life. Now that the singer is finally going to drop her latest album, 30, after years of weight, she has once again taken to attending interviews and sharing how singing about something so personal to her makes her feel. 

She opened by telling that her intimate lyrics in the album that is going to drop on November 13, this Friday is not quite as daunting a task as it could have been. Talking about the times when she wrote the lyrics for her album or recorded it, she shared, “There were moments when I was writing the record, or I would listen back to something and be like, ‘That might be a bit too private.’” Yet, the Grammy winner, aged 33, revealed “But nothing is as scary as what I’ve been through over the last two [or] three years behind closed doors,” during Adele One Night Only.

The “Love Me Like You Do” singer also said, “Music helps me in many situations, and I would like to do the same for people. To be reminded that they’re not alone.”

The singer performed three of her songs from her most recent album on the night show. Speaking of coming up with the same lyrics with Greg James in October, the songwriter had said that writing is "bloody hard work."

In another interview with the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show, the singer had said,  “It brought so much joy to my life being able to listen to music and wail at the top of my lungs along to my own bloody songs as I was writing them. … I was singing things I didn’t even realize I was feeling or thinking." 

The Oscar winner continued, "I definitely feel like I lost sight of and lost the appreciation of what a gift it is to be into music and be able to make it. I definitely feel like I lost sight of and lost the appreciation of what a gift it is to be into music and be able to make it. I think I got a bit frightened of it for a while and it really, really took care of me big time.”

Apart from her very famous interviews, the singer has also been open with her audience through her Instagram accounts where she shares many emotional peeks into her work for her followers. In a post that Adele shared in October, the star had said, “I’ve learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way,” claiming that she is finally ready to share her musical child with her fans. 

The star had also written: “I’ve shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones. Discovered genuinely useful and wholesome mentalities to lead with, and I feel like I’ve finally found my feeling again.”

The singer's last album, 25, had hit the tracks in 2015, and since then, Adele had undergone devastating changes in her life. She recently divorced her former husband Somin Konecki in 2019, and while the couple has separated, the two are co-parenting their son Angelo, who is nine at the time. The son was born to the couple in October 2012. Hence, the star talked about how her co-parenting situation with her former businessman husband, aged 47, is continuing on and also shared her evolving relationship with Rich Paul, who is a well-known sports agent. 

Talking about her failed marriage, the singer said that the divorce made her feel embarrassed. She said, “I take marriage seriously. And it seems like I don’t know, almost like I disrespected it by getting married and then divorced so quickly and stuff like that. I’m just embarrassed that I didn’t make my marriage work.”

The singer also added, "I’ve been obsessed with a nuclear family my whole life because I never came from one. In all of these movies and all of these books, you grow up thinking that’s what it should be. I just, from a very young age, promised myself that when we had kids, we would stay together. We would be that united family." Notwithstanding the differences between the former couple, Adele shared that she tried her best to make it work. She said, And I tried for a really, really long time. And then I was just so disappointed for my son, I was so disappointed for myself. And I thought I was going to be the one to stop doing those bloody patterns all the time.”

Now that the star is once again in a stable romance, she added, "I would like more children. It wouldn’t be the end of the world if I didn’t because I have Angelo, but yeah, I think so."

Apparently, the "Rolling in the Deep" singer also shared that she quit drinking “going through a divorce a few years ago.” Expanding on the fact of giving up alcohol consumption, she said, "Not at the beginning. At first, I kept the alcohol industry alive. But once I realized I had a lot of work to do on myself, I stopped drinking and started working out lots to keep me sort of centered.”

One of the most talked-about things about Adele at the moment is her drastic weight loss. Sharing why she underwent the journey, she said, "I had the most terrifying anxiety attacks after I left my marriage. They paralyzed me completely and made me so confused because I wouldn't be able to have any control over my body." The singer shared that she could keep anxiety at bay when in the gym and, hence, spent more time there.

Being in a happy relationship has done wonders for Adele recently, and the celeb gushes about her new romance wherever she can. Talking at the interview, she shared that Rich Paul, aged 39, is "just hilarious. She said, "He's so funny. And very smart. Very, very smart. It's quite incredible watching him do what he does and just the easiness of it and very smooth. He's making it easy on me… the first time I've loved myself and been open to loving and being loved by someone else ... by arriving and turning up. Maybe I'm getting a different version of him as well. It's just timing."
