Modesty crucial for success, says Adele

London: Singer Adele feels being humble is very important for an artist to be liked by the people.

The 27-year-old Oscar-winning singer said thinking great about oneself is the trigger for one’s failure, reported Female First.

“I don’t think stage fright is important, but I think it’s really important that you don’t think you’re great. Because once you get to that point, you just mess everything up. Adele said if an someone claims he or she is great, she stops admiring that artist, reported Female First.

“You think that everyone’s going to think you’re great all the time, and that’s rubbish. Artists and bands that I’ve grown up loving, they get a certain amount of success and they’re like, ‘Oh, this is easy.’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t like you anymore. I like your music, but I don’t like you.’

“And if you don’t like the person, why are you going to let them into your life? It’s a whole package, which is what I think an artist should be.”
