Adele's brutal revenge on a boyfriend who broke her heart exposed: 'You f***ing idiot!'
ADELE channeled the pain from relationship and breakups in the past to create her most celebrated and award-winning hits - but unearthed accounts reveal the singer exacted brutal revenge on one of the men who broke her heart.
Adele Adkins skyrocketed to success with her first album ‘19’ in 2006, which earned her a Grammy Award and a Mercury Prize nomination. Songs including ‘Chasing Pavements’ and ‘Hometown Glory’ quickly became fan-favorites and were widely played across the UK and US. But behind the incredibly popular album was heartache following the end of a relationship, which she used to compose her melancholic lyrics and scores. The smoky-voiced singer revealed the album was a “love letter” to the “cruel boy” who didn’t treat her well. Through her music, she was able to not only put the pain behind her but also get her own back on him. Adele shocked fans with her staggering seven stone weight loss transformation after she divorced Simon Konecki, her husband of three years in 2019. While there are no hints about any future album release, the star is known for using her life as inspiration for songs. This has led many to speculate that the difficulty of break-ups and lost love may resurface on future hits.
Adele released ‘19’ shortly after graduating from The BRIT School in London – an album that propelled her to international fame. When it came out, she feared she may appear desperate and needy, according to a 2008 Independent article, but instead it resonated with countless listeners. At the time, the singer said: “When I listen to the album now, it makes me a little bit sad that I come across as a bit pathetic.
"I don't write songs if I'm having a good time – because I'm out having a good time, not feeling sorry for myself.
“I always have to write about what's happened to me. I can't make up stories and I can't write about other people's problems."
Adele channeled similar levels of hurt for her second release ‘21’, which she claimed to have been “completely off my face” drunk while writing.
Her technique of the time would be to “drink two bottles of wine” and “chain-smoke” while she composed, according to a 2016 NME article.
She said: “I’d write the lyrics down and the next morning think, ‘F***, that’s quite good’. Then I’d find the melody.”
At that time Adele had finished her third album ‘25’, which furthered her success but lamented not being able to write as passionately as she did for previous releases.
She claimed this was because “a drunk tongue is an honest one” and she had drastically cut down her alcohol consumption after becoming a parent because she didn’t want son Angelo to see her in an emotionally vulnerable state.
Casting her mind back to her first release ‘19’, which the star thought of as one of her more successful albums, she acknowledged it was aided by the difficulties she was facing during those years.
Adele explained that her muse, the “cruel boy” who broke her heart, knew he had influenced the whole album and appeared to relish it.
She said: "Yeah, and he loves it. He's like 'That song's about me'.”
But in an unexpected twist, she claimed those around him didn’t think of it as such of an achievement and ridiculed him.
This combined with some online who vented about the mystery man who hurt her – coupled with a number of others who despised him through understanding the emotions she had struggled with.
Adele added: “And all his mates are like: 'You f***ing idiot, you broke her heart'."
