UK Grammy winning artist, Adele, has denied that she is about to take a five-year long break from making any more music.
The singer that saw international success with her album, '21', was quoted this week (February 14) in the US edition of Vogue as saying she wanted to "fuck off for four or five years" to focus on her new relationship with her boyfriend Simon Konecki, and would only return to her musical career when she can move away from her current album’s theme and write a "happy record".
Though it took just a few hours before the UK star took back those words, writing a message to her fans on her blog at Adele.tv/blog. The post about her time at the Grammy awards makes a reference to the interview with her words:
“I've a few days off now, and then it's the Brit Awards here at home and then I'm straight into the studio. 5 years? More like 5 days!”
The rumour began after Adele made comments in an interview with the US edition of Vogue quoting her as saying: "I am fucking off for four or five years. If I am constantly working, my relationships fail. So at least now I can have enough time to write a happy record. And be in love and be happy. And then I don't know what I'll do. Get married. Have some kids. Plant a nice vegetable patch."
In the same interview, she went on to say that she was sick and tired of being a "bitter witch" and that she would never write an album about another break-up again.
The comments come just days after Adele shined on her return to the big stage, picking up six Grammys after winning every category in which she was lucky enough to be nominated in, including best record for Rolling In the Deep and album of the year for 21.
The 23-year-old underwent surgery on her vocal cords late last year and had been resting her voice on doctor's orders until US music's biggest night. For the first time since then, the singer took the stage to belt out Rolling In the Deep and finished to a standing ovation.
