Speaking about how having son Angelo in 2012 has changed her life Adele said: “I can’t have any other junk in my head to worry about as well.” Adding that he “makes me very proud of myself. When I became a parent, I felt like I was truly living. I had a purpose, where before I didn’t.”

After having Angelo Adele took time off from the spotlight to enjoy her new life, before starting work on her new album. “My main thing is Mum, then it’s me, then it’s work. I think I had to take the right amount of time off to let people miss me,” she said.

“I just didn’t really know what I was going on about. How could I ever try and fool anyone by putting the record out and expect them to get it if I didn’t get it? It seemed a bit lazy.” Adele also added that she’s now more comfortable than ever in her own skin.

“I was just shocked that all of a sudden I was 25!” she added. “But actually I like myself more than ever. I feel so comfortable in my own skin. I really like how I look, I like who I am, I like everyone that I surround myself with. Obviously I have insecurities but they don’t hold me back.”

Adele also spoke about her love for the Spice Girls, something which people often think she’s joking about. “People always think I joke about this but the Spice Girls blew up when I was seven. And seeing them coming from a humble background—there was hope in it. It was really a massive part of my life when the whole Girl Power thing happened.”
