Adele enters her 31st year by promising to ‘spend it all on myself’. The singer, who said her 30th year really tested her, recently got divorced.
On the eve of her 31st birthday, Adele posted a number of black and white photos from her New Years Eve party. She wrote, “This is a 31…thank f**king god. 30 tried me so hard but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all”. Here, the singer is addressing her divorce from Simon Konecki after 8 years.
The couple has a 6-year-old son named Angelo Adkins, and a source told E! that the couple just “grew apart”. The source added, “She became a bigger and bigger star, and he was okay [with] being in the background, but as she got bigger and had massive tours and intense schedules, they just grew apart.”
She added, “No matter how long we’re here for life is constant and complicated at times. I’ve changed drastically in the last couple years and I’m still changing and that’s okay. 31 is going to be a big ol’ year and I’m going to spend it all on myself.”
Addressing the tumultuous changes she has had in the last year, she said, “For the first time in a decade I’m ready to feel the world around me and look up for once. Be kind to yourself people we’re only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity. Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I’ve only just realized that that is more than enough. I’ll learn to love you lot eventually.”
She also promised fans new music soon, writing, “Bunch of f**king savages, 30 will be a drum n bass record to spite you. Chin up eh.”
Happy birthday Adele!
