Adele after the breakup
The 12 months as a 30-year-old had been “hard” for Adele. But “31 is going to be a big ol’ year,” vowed the pop star, who appears excited to be moving forward in her life as a single woman.
“I’m going to spend it all on myself,” the singer-songwriter—who revealed last April that she had separated from her husband of seven years, Simon Konecki—wrote on Instagram. “For the first time in a decade, I’m ready to feel the world around me and look up for once.”
“Thirty tried me so hard, but I’m owning it, and I’m trying my hardest to lean into it all. No matter how long we’re here for, life is constant and complicated. I have changed drastically in the last couple years, and I’m still changing—and that’s OK,” she added.
Now, Adele is determined to live her life to the fullest and see to it that she enjoys even the littlest things.
More than enough
“Be kind to yourself, people—we’re only human. Go slow, put your phone down, laugh out loud at every opportunity,” she said. “Learning to truly love yourself is it. I have only just realized that that is more than enough.”
And to cap off her first message to her fans since the breakup, Adele, who had named her past studio albums (“19,” “21,” “25”) after the age in which she worked on them, gave a little teaser about the type of sound the listeners can expect from her in the future.
“It will be a drum n’ bass record to spite you,” she jested.—ALLAN POLICARPIO
