London: Oscar-winning singer Adele says it was the birth of her three-year-old son Angelo that encouraged her come back with a new album “25” after her 2011 work, “21”.
Adele, 27, acknowledged it was “weird” taking a break from music but feels it was the right thing to do, reported Female First.
The singer will release “25” on November 20.
“I know some people thought I was mad for taking a break. Even I can see it was a bit weird. But I’m glad it happened. I think it was the right thing. It slowed everything down.”
Asked about her motivation to return, she said, “My son. I felt so mega having given birth; the confidence from that, I felt unstoppable. I’m sure most women feel that. Towards the end of the
’21’ stuff, I couldn’t remember why I was doing it any more.
“I couldn’t answer the question: ‘Why am I halfway around the world? On my own?’ But then, after I had my son, I thought, ‘Yeah, that’s why I did it all.’ I felt proud of what I’d achieved with
’21’ for the first time. And now everything I do, in every channel of my life, is part of a legacy that I’m making for my child. For my children, if I have more.”
Adele said she is not motivated by money.
“I’m not motivated by much, certainly not by money – but I’m motivated by that. I want my child to see his mum running a proper business again. Being a boss again. Hopefully smashing it again.”
