Adele blasts social media, claims it’s ‘not real’

London : Grammy-winning singer Adele does not consider social media to be “real”.

The singer, 27, said she consciously disengaged herself from social networks while she was writing her latest album 25, claiming it kept her free from distractions during the creative process.

“Privacy is key to being able to write a real record, whether people like it or not. My life has changed so much, but I’ve made the realest record I can make, and it’s the real part of me. How am I supposed to write a real record if I’m waiting for half a million likes on a photo? That ain’t real,” she said.

Adele also claimed some artists are overexposed and are therefore, diluting the impact of their music.

“I’m not throwing shade at anybody, but when you have a six-month build up, don’t expect me to be there the day your album comes out, because I’m bored.”
