We could listen to Adele talk about love and relationships all day.
During a recent concert in Brisbane, Australia, the singer got real about the inspiration behind one of her biggest hits, “Someone Like You.” Adele wrote the beautiful-but-heart-wrenching breakup song to “help her feel better about herself” after a terrible split.
The Oscar-winner admitted she felt “bitter” after the breakup, but explained, “I was trying to remember how it was I felt at the beginning of the relationship that inspired that record because as bad as a breakup can be, as bitter and horrible and messy as it can be, that feeling when you first fall for someone is the best feeling on earth, and I am addicted to that feeling.”
Then she not-so-subtly sent some serious love (and again seemingly confirmed her marriage) to her longtime partner Simon Konecki saying, “Obviously, I can’t go through those feelings because I’m married now. I’ve found my next person.”
“As I’m getting older, a lot of my friends are finishing their first marriages ― not me! But they are! ― shit,” she joked. “I see how much they hate who they’re married to, who they have kids with. And I’m not in that position and I can’t relate to that right now and I hope I never do.”
Earlier this year, Adele appeared to confirm her marriage to Konecki during one of her acceptance speeches at the Grammys. The couple, who have 4-year-old son Angelo together, have been dating for five years.
It was rumored the two tied the knot at some point in early 2017, when a photo of the “Water Under The Bridge” singer wearing a gold band on her ring finger started circulating in January. The photo led many to believe she and Konecki had secretly married. At the time, Adele’s reps refused to address the speculation, but it seems like we’ve got all the proof we need now.
