Adele Talks About Her Divorce, Weight Loss, and Says “Beyoncé Definitely Should Have Won’ Album of the Year Grammy”

Adele is set to drop new music, but first it’s press time.

The singer is the cover star for VOGUE Britain and American, and speaking with the British branch of the prestigious magazine, she opened up about her divorce from Simon Konecki in 2019, noting that the process was only finalized in March of this year.

“My son has had a lot of questions. Really good questions, really innocent questions, that I just don’t have an answer for. … ‘Why can’t you still live together?’” she said. “I just felt like I wanted to explain to him, through this record, when he’s in his twenties or thirties, who I am and why I voluntarily chose to dismantle his entire life in the pursuit of my own happiness. It made him really unhappy sometimes. And that’s a real wound for me that I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to heal.”

She further explained why she chose to end her marriage, saying it was more of a drifting apart situation. “It just wasn’t right for me any more,” she said. “Nothing bad happened or anything like that.”

About her new relationship, she confirmed that she’s been dating Rich Paul since earlier this year. “Yes, we’re together,” she said. “We’re very happy. … He’s great. He’s so fuckng funny. He’s so smart, you know.”

About her weight loss, she said: “I think one of the reasons people lost the plot was because actually, it was over a two-year period…Working out, I would just feel better. It was never about losing weight, it was always about becoming strong and giving myself as much time every day without my phone. I got quite addicted to it. I work out two or three times a day..I was basically unemployed when I was doing it, and I do it with trainers. It’s not doable for a lot of people. I did it for myself and not anyone else.”

And about her Album of the Year for 25 at the 2017 Grammys, she said that Beyoncé’s Lemonade should have taken home the award instead: “My personal opinion is that Beyoncé definitely should have won. I just got this feeling: I fucking won it. I got overwhelmed, with, like, I will have to go and tell her how much her record means to me.”

She added that she went to Beyoncé’s dressing room and was initially unable to express just how much Lemonade meant to her. She burst into tears before paying Queen Bey a second visit. “I just said to her, like, the way that the Grammys works, and the people who control it at the very, very top—they don’t know what a visual album is, They don’t want to support the way that she’s moving things forward with her releases and the things that she’s talking about. … For my friends who are women of color, it was such a huge acknowledgment for them, of the sort of undermined grief that they go through. For her to nail that on the head, and also bring in the entire globe? I was like, ‘This album is my album, she just knows what I’m going through.’ That album was not written for me. But yet I could still feel like, this is the biggest gift.”
