Adele Addresses Hiatus Reports and Is Returning To The Studio was a top 12 pop story of Feb. 2012: Adele addresses her sweep of the Grammy Awards and speculation that she is planning to take a five year break from music. In fact, she tells fans she is heading back into the recording studio.
The hiatus speculation came from media reports where a quote from a profile in Vogue magazine was taken out of context to read that she was planning to take "four or five years" off. The actual quote was her response when asked about her plans to settle down and start a family. The actual profile read ....One day, I ask about her future. "I am f***ing off for four or five years," she says. "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."
Adele addressed the reports in an indirect way in a blog entry where we learn that she is not taking time off, but is planning to return to the recording studio. She wrote: Oh goodness!! I'm absoloutly flabbergasted! In between laughing my head off, welling up, needing to sit down and trying to maintain an open fire (which is pretty much impossible huh!?) I keep having flashbacks to Sunday night. The most incredible night of my life. Thank you to you all, I am so overwhelmed, it's the strangest feeling. I have constant butterflies and goosebumps, it's wearing me out but I LOVE it! I've been sleeping a lot but the minute I wake up I burst out laughing and it starts all over again.
I forgot to mention so many people by name on the night, and for that I'm sorry. I will say thanks to your face when I next see you. I was totally unprepared. Despite the phenomenal year, I swear I didn't think I had any chance. All the categories were full of people I adore with brilliant songs, records and performances. So not in my wildest dreams did I think to actually prepare anything proper to say just in case.
Thank you to everyone who enjoys my music, and to all the "daydreamers" (i love that you call yourselves that. I read all your messages and threads from time to time and you crack me up x) it seems like you pass 21 on and want people to hear it and it's because of that that it's evolved into something that we should all be very proud of. All of this is yours the songs, the shows, the moments like this. Not that there's any other moments like this one, but you get my drift
The night itself was so amazing, I met so many incredible people and everyone we've lost this year were on our minds and in our hearts and it was lovely to remember them all together as fans and friends.
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. BOYYAHH! 5 years? More like 5 days!
