It might not be pretty, but one woman has used her personal story of heartbreak to show why Adele’s music manages to touch so many of us.
One fan’s Facebook love-letter to Adele has quickly gone viral, receiving over 46,000 likes in under 24 hours. Stephanie Pope posted her story of how she became an Adele fan on the event page of one of the singer’s upcoming concerts and her explicit (and very real account) of coming home after a drunken night out has resonated with fans all over the world.
A fan’s letter to Adele has gone viral.
‘Dear Adele. I had just split up with my 2 timing, lying, cheating dirt bag of a fiancée 2 weeks previous when you sang at the Brit Awards,’ Pope wrote. 'I had got pissed as a newt in an hour! Ya know when they say you get pissed quicker when your an emotional wreck?!..’
‘Anyway, in my black dress, black tights, black heels, I came home crashing through the front door absolutely wasted, obliviously trailing dog s*** on my shoes, right through my lovely hallway…I stumbled into the living room and pressed play on your recorded performance of 'Someone Like You' on the TV.’
‘I sang and cried at the top of my lungs, believing I was you as I belted out every word to the b****** In the doorway looking at me with disgust! He closed the door on me and went to bed! I didn't give a s***, I was pissed and I was a woman, with feelings, and a heart, and I deserved better.’
‘All I needed was me and you, because you understood! Lol!!…In that instant you became me and I became you!!’ Pope added that thanks to Adele she was rid of her ‘ratbag ex fiancée’ and was now happily married to the man of her dreams.
So far the post has been liked over 46,000 times and shared over 2,300 times. Writing on her own page Pope later added, “I don't often bare my soul like such, but I was recalling this story tonight to my best mate Andrea, and I thought f*** it, this is funny! And Adele should know about it! “
“I am sure we all have stories like this, and dog shit piss stained times in our lives that we look back at now and laugh…” Adele has yet to respond to Pope’s post, but it’s stories like this that make us glad to have Adele back making music that can touch us all, especially during some of our lowest moments.
