33-year-old Adele continues to promote her third studio album, “30”, which will be released on November 19. The other day, the singer visited several radio stations at once and talked about the difficult life events that pushed her to record a new disc. First of all, we are talking about Adele's divorce from American businessman Simon Konecki, which happened in 2019.
Simon Konecki and Adele
On yesterday's air of the Australian radio station Carrie & Tommy, Adele admitted that she was very upset about parting and suffered for a long time from panic attacks, which she tried to hide from her nine-year-old son Angelo. The singer described one of such terrible episodes in a song from the new album, which she dedicated to her son. On the same track, Adele included a voice message to her friend, which she recorded in a state of alarm.
It will be in the song about my son, at the very end. Then I got really scared. I had a panic attack and called my best friend to talk to her about it, but she fucking didn't answer! It sheds light on many points … In the rest of the song, I say that I can only stop being brave when I put my son to bed,
– said Adele.
The singer expressed hope that the album “30” in a few years will help her son Angelo better understand why his parents could not stay together. Adele admitted that such a song would have been useful for her when she was still just a girl. The fact is that the star also grew up in an incomplete family: her parents broke up when she was very young, and Adele's father did not communicate with her during her growing up.
Adele also appeared on Heart Radio last Friday. In that conversation, the star admitted that the divorce from Simon Konecki (they were together for about eight years) actually had to happen even earlier:
This was a belated decision. Everything was very exhausting. It's really hard work and I was able to give it the time I needed. The more you put it off, the worse it gets, and I still did it for several years. Now I feel calm as never before. So I would say that going through all this shit is really worth it.
Adele will have an even more candid conversation next month. Five days before the album's release, CBS will air a two-hour special of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Adele One Night Only. In a conversation with the lead singer, she is expected to talk in detail about divorce, motherhood and weight loss. It is possible that the speech will go to the new boyfriend of the star – 39-year-old sports agent Riche Pole.
