Say It Ain't So! Adele Says She's Taking Four Or Five Years Off From Music!

| Filed under: Music MinuteLove LineAdele

adele says shell take a five year break from music

We think/hope/pray she's exaggerating!

During a recent interview, Adele announced to the world that she'll be taking a break from music for a looooong time!

Here's what she had to say about it:

"I am f***ing off for four or five years."

"If I am constantly working, my relationships fail. So at least now I can have enough time to write a happy record. And be in love and be happy. And then I don’t know what I’ll do. Get married. Have some kids. Plant a nice vegetable patch."

While we certainly think she deserves some time to herself, we can't imagine five years without new Adele music!

…But to be honest, we don't think she'll be gone that long.

In the meanwhile though, at least we've got amazing performances like THIS one to keep us sated!!!!!

What do U think? How long will it be until we get a new Adele album???

    Good for her. It is so refreshing to see an artist who does not seem to be addicted to the spotlight and willing to pull any kind of asinine stunt to get attention. There is so much more to life than fame.

  2. 2

    She needs to take up drinking and maybe smoke more pot … grow the veggies that can double as vaginal insert devices, and then chop them up to serve in guests' salads, you know, just for fun, and then write songs about it.

  3. 3

    She is a great singer and all but needs to loose weight she is a bit boring as an artist or a person, if she stays away from the spot light everyone will lose interest in her.

    We think/hope/pray she's exaggerating! I'M really interested PEEREX to whom/what do YOU pray to????

    Re: ShoeWhore – that's good, elsewhere on this site there is all sorts of shit being said about how "someone" who should have stopped whitney, and here you are telling someone else to get drunk and high. way to go there shoe whore

    Well, Perez…when an artist actually cares about his/her craft, it's not unusual to take several years between albums. Being a whore for a record label (like Rihanna) and putting out an album every year may float your boat, but it's clearly not what's best for Adele. Quality is so much more important than quantity, and she gets that. She is a real person. Her music has touched a lot of people because she wants it to always be honest, real, and inspired. She absolutely should rest her voice for a long time, too. Hopefully, idiots like Rihanna and Katy Perry will have disappeared by the time she puts out her next album. It would be nice if pop radio would shift back to a more organic place in the wake of 21's success….

    Career suicide. A 4-5 year break in the music biz is an ETERNITY. Back in the day people like Michael, Janet and Whitney could do that and not be affected but these days it's a whole different story. People lose interest in a heartbeat.

    What happened FatHead. CaCa spray degreaser on her coat tails to get you off so now you are trying to jump on Adele's

  9. 9

    In light of Whitney Houston's sad life and passing you would think more artists would protect themselves like Adele is doing. Listening to fans and hangeroners seems a bad recipe for living a life.

  10. 10

    It's not true Perez. If her website hadn't crashed (AGAIN) you could go read the blog post that she posted today. In that post she said she was going back into the studio right after the Brit's. She actually made a joke about the 5 year break rumor. I'm sure she's not recording a new album yet, but I do think she's recording the Bond theme.

    Actually, Perez has been a supporter of Adele from very early on. WAY before her success and global fame. He has posted stuff about Adele for a very long time.

    Personally, I think she is very overrated. I don't think she is that great of a lyricist or singer. Taylor Swift writes better songs than she does (I didn't say sing, I said writes). Adele is good, don't get me wrong, but not as good as everyone thinks.

  14. 14

    Well…to each their own, but I LOVE Adele. She makes me feel something while listening to her music. While I love all kinds of music and listen to a huge variety of it, Adele is one of very few artists who can actually evoke real emotion from me while listening to music. I've also had the pleasure of seeing her live in a small venue and she was THE BEST live performer I have ever seen. By leaps and bounds…and I've been to countless concerts.

    Re: JerseyGirlll

    Me too - I don't get the attraction. Her songs are ok, yes she has a beautiful voice. Just not interesting really. She's just trying to be provacative and get attention with this '4-5 years off' crap. She wouldn't dare risk fading into obscurity as she'll be replaced as the flavour of the month in a few months anyway….

  16. 16

    It'll take her that long just to get all of that makeup off.

  17. 17

    what a loser 4-5 weeks shes replaced by another mcdonalds loving fatty . shes a idiot

  18. 18

    I'm sorry but how do you compare rolling in the deep or someone like you to anything Taylor swift has written?? Your quality of music is very very lowww.

  19. 19

    The great artists realize that making great music is a process that takes time. If she needs four to five years to get inspiration to get into a creative place and gives us more good music, I have no problems in waiting for it. I'd rather have good quality music from an artist who takes their time in creating art, than listen to those artists who hammer out a record every year, written by other people, in order to stay relevant. Adele doesn't have to do that because she has great singing and songwriting abilities and her music will stay relevant 20 years from now.

    Good for her! This young lady is by far the smartest star in the world! She is also the brightest star in the world! She's only 23 years old and she already realizes that she CAN have it all! She's already made enough money for a lifetime or two. Go enjoy the benefits of the best album of the the last two decades! Let her have a life, and when she's ready she'll be back with a new happy album that will blow us all away! She is a genius, and I wish her nothing but happiness! Adele, you deserve everything you have coming to you! Congratulations on the 6 Grammys you earned! More importantly, Congratulations on being smart enough not to let fame get to you! I Love everything you do! I will miss you! I will be the first in line to buy your new album, whenever you decide to grace us with that AMAZING VOICE again!

  21. 21

    Awe good for her but I'll sure miss her music…..

  22. 22

    It's ridiculous to have announced she's leaving music close to time she is being honored with six Grammies - could she just hold the words in through the Grammy season - I don't know her history - and I can understand taking extended time off after surgery -, but I think it's rude to just say in a way "Eff You". Honestly what is the deal? Is she is pain - she looks stiffer than a board - and that dress looks like something the Queen Mother would wear. Sorry but mellow out woman !

  23. 23

    Maria Carey killed her voice by working so much in the 90s and drug use aside I imagine Whitney Houston damaged her vocals the same way. If Adele paces herself she could be around for a long time, which is a better alternative to her burning herself out. :)

  24. 24

    She just wants time off to lose weight. Her 15 minutes of fame are getting old. Sure she has a good voice but all her songs sound the same and personally I don't see the hysteria appeal. She's one and done.

  25. 25

    Thank goodness! Peace out girl

  26. 26

    Good for her. Honestly FAME isn't everything in life. Some people actually want more than JUST that. I've seen her on Graham Norton and she really seems like your average girl next door. She deserves happiness just like everyone else.

  27. 27

    Re: julia101 – It's not ridiculous… it's like what Beyonce did. It's normal to fade out of the spotlight… in fact I would argue it's healthier for her in the long run. Beyonce did it right: made her millions and started a family. More artists would do well to follow in their footsteps. Just don't pull a Britney and say you'll be back in six months because obvi we all know how that worked out

    She's only been around a year, who cares. I'm not gonna sit around and cry about it. She made enough money she can probably take off the rest of her life, if she manages her money well.

    Re: honeylove021 – Excuse me, you could have replied directly to me I don't take offense to things like what you said honey. I said that Taylor's lyrics are better not her voice. And I stand by that. I think that Taylor consistently writes better songs. My quality of music is not low, thank you. I am merely comparing TWO artists' lyrics out of the hundreds I listen to, do not judge me on that please and thank you.

  31. Xenu says – reply to this


    she just won a ton of grammys, she deserves a break

    Comparing Taylor Swift and Adele is like comparing Ana Faris to Meryl Streep. It's personal preference. For me, I prefer Adele. And to those commenting on her weight — you are pathetic. Let's see your picture up here and hear what people have to say about you. Adele is beautiful. As is Taylor Swift, as is every other person walking on this earth. Not all the same type of beauty, but beautiful nonetheless. And when did cyber bullying become okay? Oh.. right.. insecure childish people hiding behind a computer screen calling someone fat. People like you are disgusting.

    While I respect Adele's right to live her life as she wishes, she could maybe play some US dates to makeup for the many canceled performances and thousands of people inconvenienced last year, before taking several years off. I never pay for music and rarely attend concerts but I purchased 19 and 21 AND spent a great deal of $ on lodging, airfare, and concert tickets last summer - and I know I'm not the only one who made extensive and expensive arrangements to see this lady perform live.

    Adele owes not a thing to anyone, but letting the folks who wanted to see her pre Grammys and pre #1 album get their chance would go a long way in ensuring they're still there at the end of her absence.

    If she, medically, cannot undertake a tour that is certainly understandable, but it really fucking pisses me off that she continues to smoke post throat surgery - and this is coming from a smoker - but i'm not in a field where my occasional tobacco intake has much bearing, whereas this is Adele's lifeblood and repeated vocal dynamics 3 days out of 7 combined with a pack a day habit make for, hmmmmmm…?

  34. 34

    pretty sure she's just saying that for attention. otherwise she's just gonna be sitting on her couch eating and smoking cigarettes. yuck.

    Hi there Perz, I have not been writing anything on here in along time. But to hear that Adele, is to take a long 5/6 year break. She will be missed she is one of the best Singers so far besides Ms. Houston, and myself l o l the l o l is me, I do sing but I am not a star yet. Well I know She will be back for what ever reason she is leaving for relationship or her voice. She was meant to entertain in the Music World and I know they will be trying hard to get her back on track, back into the Music World. But if I won 6 Awards, I would take a long break. She is blessed right now and she needs to take care of self, self is always second because if we do not care of self no one else will. For me its God first, family second, and myself third, and all else is 4th place in my life. We all must do what is good for us and our family and our friends to keep it close knit. If you do not things do break down on us. Our body, our relationships, our family our everything can break down, and that is what we do not want, its what keeps us all sane these things. But my love goes out to Adele, and I am so grateful she shared and was blessed and allowed to share her God blessed voice with us and the world. She is wonderful in singing, her voice so amazing. I was amazed and moved by her. She inspires me and I am sure many others as well. Tell her good luck and great blessing as she rest up.

    First of all - NOOOOOO!! I can't wait that long for more Adele music!! Second of all - she just started dating this new guy and now she's talking marriage? Dang girl, gettin serious! Is it bad for a small part of me to secretly hope this new relationship crashes & burns so we can get another killer album?

  37. 37

    Now this is news. & sad news at that. I love this girl.
    I hope she just means time off from touring. Whatever she means I wish only the best for her. She is an amazing talent.
