Adele used to drink to help her write her music!
She told reporters:
I used to have to lock myself away in my house, get pretty drunk and write a drunk diary - and that was the first time I could admit things to myself. A drunk tongue is an honest one in my opinion and the next morning I would read it through with an awful hangover and, in the cold light of day, had to absorb my feelings about myself. I was a bit scared that I wouldn't be articulate enough.
Wow! Who knew??
Well, we're glad all of that's in the past tense, because we wouldn't want it becoming a problem in the present!
