Adele, the powerhouse vocalist known for her soulful ballads and raw lyrics, recently made a candid admission during her Weekends with Adele residency show in Las Vegas. After four months of sobriety, the 35-year-old singer expressed her desire to indulge in the pleasure of drinking again.
With her trademark wit and charm, Adele playfully told the audience, ‘I’m just going to chill. I’m annoyed as well that I’m sick again because this is red wine weather.’ She revealed that she’s ‘ready’ to start drinking again, emphasizing that her break from alcohol has come to an end.
However, Adele also shared a surprising revelation about her relationship with red wine. Despite her longing for a glass of the rich beverage, she admitted, ‘I can’t drink red wine ever when I’m singing because I don’t know about you, but red wine f**** me up.
I cannot handle it.’ She explained that red wine gives her ‘the worst hangover,’ making it unsuitable for her professional commitments.
This isn’t the first time Adele has been open about her decision to quit drinking. In October, she announced to fans at a residency concert that she had given up alcohol three months prior. Reflecting on her past, she confessed, ‘I mean, I was literally borderline alcoholic for quite a lot of my 20s. But I miss it so much.’
During a candid interview with Oprah Winfrey in November 2021, Adele delved deeper into her journey of sobriety. She revealed that after her split from Simon Konecki, she spent a significant amount of time alone, getting to know herself without the influence of alcohol.
‘I stopped drinking. That’s one great way of getting to know yourself, is just drinking water and being sober as anything,’ she shared.
Adele acknowledged that quitting alcohol was a pivotal step in her personal growth. ‘Once I realized that I had a lot of work to do on myself, I stopped drinking and I started working out lots and stuff like that to keep me centered,’ she explained.
While Adele’s confession may come as a surprise to some, it serves as a reminder that everyone’s journey to self-discovery and sobriety is unique. The singer’s honesty and vulnerability in sharing her struggles with alcohol make her relatable to fans around the world.
