Adele, the soulful powerhouse behind hits like “Someone Like You,” is waving goodbye to her self-imposed alcohol hiatus! The 35-year-old songstress dropped the news during her Weekends with Adele residency in Las Vegas, and let’s just say, the wine glasses might be clinking soon.
She spilled the beans to the crowd, revealing her plans to loosen up a bit during her upcoming break. It turns out Adele’s been on the wagon for about four months, but the call of a good drink is too strong to resist.
“I’m just going to chill. I’m annoyed as well that I’m sick again because this is red wine weather,” she shared with the audience, hinting at her longing for a cozy glass to accompany her downtime.
Adele’s journey into sobriety hasn’t been all smooth notes, though. During her residency, she had to bid farewell to her favorite red wine. Why, you ask? Well, it turns out it wasn’t playing nice with her voice. According to Adele, red wine gives her vocal cords a run for their money, messing with her pipes.
“It gets rid of my voice. I can’t drink red wine ever when I’m singing because I don’t know about you, but red wine f*cks me up. I cannot handle it,” she confessed to the audience, revealing the not-so-harmonious relationship between her voice and vino.
And if that wasn’t enough, she let slip that red wine gifts her the “worst hangover.” Ouch, that’s a double whammy—a voice-wrecker and a morning-after nightmare.
But here’s the kicker: once Adele’s back in top-notch shape, she’s planning to indulge in a little treat—splurging on a fancy bottle of Châteauneuf-du-Pape that she’s been saving for a special occasion. Now that’s what we call a celebration waiting to happen!
In mid-October, Adele revealed her sober streak, sharing that she’d bid adieu to alcohol about three and a half months prior. She opened up about her relationship with alcohol, admitting, “I was borderline alcoholic for quite a lot of my 20s.”
Now, as she gears up to embrace a bit of tippling during her break, it looks like Adele’s ready to raise a glass to good times ahead. After all, what’s a little sip of wine between a songstress and her vocal cords? Cheers to Adele uncorking her spirit and toasting to the next chapter!
