Adele may be perfectly happy with her boyfriend, Simon Konecki, and her son, Angelo, but she still has one last "f--k you" to her ex-boyfriend in the form of a song, "Send My Love (to Your New Lover)."
"This is my f--k-you song.” Adele told The Guardian about her ex who inspired most her last album, 21. "It sounds obvious, but I think you only learn to love again when you fall in love again. I’m in that place. My love is deep and true with my man, and that puts me in a position where I can finally reach out a hand to the ex. Let him know I’m over it."
But don't expect her upcoming album, 25 (November 20), to be all about this particular ex once again, since Adele described it as a "make-up record." The singer is talking about "making up for everything I ever and never did," but also singing about how fame has changed the way people in her hometown look at her, particularly on a track called, "Million Years Ago."
“It’s lonely. It makes you lonely. I mean, I can usually break the ice. If after 10 minutes people still aren’t saying anything, I’ll crack a joke, and I’ll go in to my scared-nervous-chat mode, like I do on stage, and make everyone laugh," she said. "But then I feel as if I’m performing. And I don’t know if that’s… Like… Don’t they ever want to meet just me? But then, at the same time I think, they’re probably not even there to meet me... I can’t explain.”
The "Hello" singer, who said that although it's "easy to give in to being famous" because it's "charming," has done her best to keep her life as normal as possible saying "no" to some pretty high profile endorsement deals over the years.
“What have I said no to? Everything you can imagine. Literally every-f--king-thing. Books, clothes, food ranges, drink ranges, fitness ranges... That’s probably the funniest," she said. "They wanted me to be the face of a car. Toys. Apps. Candles. It’s, like, I don’t want to endorse a line of nail varnishes, but thanks for asking. A million pounds to sing at your birthday party? I’d rather do it for free if I’m doing it, cheers..."
That's not to say Adele doesn't love what she is doing because she does, but she's not doing it for the fame or the money, she does it for one thing: "my son."
“I felt so mega having given birth; the confidence from that, I felt unstoppable. I’m sure most women feel that... Towards the end of the 21 stuff, I couldn’t remember why I was doing it any more. I couldn’t answer the question: ‘Why am I halfway around the world? On my own?’ But then, after I had my son, I thought, ‘Yeah, that’s why I did it all," she said. "I felt proud of what I’d achieved with 21 for the first time. And now everything I do, in every channel of my life, is part of a legacy that I’m making for my child. For my children, if I have more. I’m not motivated by much, certainly not by money – but I’m motivated by that. I want my child to see his mum running a proper business again. Being a boss again. Hopefully smashing it again."
