Should Adele Be Talking To The Ex Who Inspired 21? We Check Out Her Lyrics To See If He’s No Good

By Dionne Buxton

Everyone’s favorite singer-songwriter Adele has rekindled a friendship with the ex who inspired many songs from her multiplatinum 21 album.

“We’re becoming friends again. It’s alright, I know what I’m doing. Enough time has gone by,” Adele said in a recent interview with the UK’s The Independent.

Like the classy woman she is, Adele has never disclosed the name of the scumbag gentleman that walked away from her. Instead, she turned her pain into gut-wrenching lyrics that listeners have latched onto, making 21 by far the year’s top-selling record.


She said she has finally reached a place of recovery where she is strong enough to let him back into her life, especially with the success of this album.

“Now with what’s going on with the album around the world, it’s important to be able to share it with him because it’s marvelous what has happened,” she said. “He changed my life, I can’t deny that. The album helped me get over splitting up with my boyfriend.” Adele added, “It helped me forgive and I hope that he has forgiven himself.”

Since we don’t know exactly what happened in her past relationship, we studied some lyrics from 21 to try to get the scoop…

When will I see you again?
You left with no goodbye, not a single word was said,
No final kiss to seal any seams,
I had no idea of the state we were in

So, a very abrupt breakup…loser

But there’s a side to you
That I never knew, never knew
All the things you’d say
They were never true, never true,
And the games you play
You would always win, always win

He changed on you! Lied to you! And he was a player? We hate him.

I heard that you’re settled down
That you found a girl and you’re married now
I heard that your dreams came true
Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you

He’s already found someone else? Isn’t there like a 3-month “no dating anyone else” rule?

On the other hand, and we hate to be selfish in this situation, but without this creep we wouldn’t have this chart-topping album or her legendary performance at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Hopefully there’s a Prince Charming out there waiting to inspire her next album. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for you, Adele!
