Singer Adele is back! She is topping the charts and kicking Taylor Swift record with over 100 million views for her new music video in less than 7 days. In her first proper interview in three years, the singer explained to i-D magazine that the heartbreak themes of her previous record won’t dominate “25.”
“I’m not heartbroken, but I probably won’t be able to better the one I did, so what’s the point?” she said. “Also, how I felt when I wrote ’21,’ it ain’t worth feeling like that again. … I was very sad and very lonely. Regardless of being a mom or a girlfriend, I didn’t want to feel like that again.”
Adele knows she’ll never make an album like “21” again, nor does she want to try.
The singer, 27, who has been dating Simon Konecki since 2011, added that her latest single, “Hello,” is not about the same person who inspired songs on “21.” (“That’s over and done with,” she said.) In fact, she added, “It’s not about anyone specifically.”
“It’s about friends, ex-boyfriends, it’s about myself, it’s about my family,” she said. “It’s also about my fans as well. I feel like everyone thinks I’m so far away and I’m not.”
Adele, who has a 3-year-old son with Konecki, added that while some people assume she lives in America now, she still lives in England.
