Adele Blames “Mom Guilt” For Her Break Between Albums

Everyone’s favourite singer, Adele, couldn’t bring herself to leave her son to work on her follow-up album

Most moms know that “mom guilt” isn’t the boogey-man of motherhood… because it is a real and ever present danger unlike the boogey-man.

So we can completely understand why Adele blames “mom guilt” for the delayed release of her latest album 25 (which we cannot stop listening to on repeat, by the way).

“I couldn’t get over my guilt of leaving my kid to go and write a record,” the 27-year-old singer told Matt Lauer earlier this week on the Today show.

Adele released her now infamous 21 back in 2011. In 2012, Adele and her partner Simon Konecki welcomed their son Angelo. And that seemed to be the last we saw of Adele until earlier this year, in November, when her new album 25 dropped.

Over the course of those three years (that seemed to stretch on forever for those of us who love Adele and couldn’t wait for more of her soulful voice), Adele struggled to write a follow-up to 21 despite the fact that Angelo made her a more emotionally-connected person “in every single way possible.”

“He is my emotional place. I did write songs about that, but it was boring for everyone else. Everyone’s own child is the light of their lives but not the light of the lives of anyone else,” Adele said.

And, again, Adele wins the Most Relatable Celeb Mom Award, because let’s be honest, don’t we all love our own kids so much so that we can justify posting that seventeenth Instagram shot of the day?

But thankfully, Adele preserved with her writing and eventually 25 was born.

“I found it impossible for a while, and I didn’t know what I wanted to write about. To be honest, I wasn’t sad. I was overthinking everything, and when I chilled out, it came,” she said.

 

So now, Adele says she’s never been happier—with her family by her side and a new hit album, who could blame her!
