Adele is speaking out in defense of her decision to postpone her much-awaited Las Vegas residency.
In an interview with BBC Radio 4 Sunday, the “Easy On Me” singer addressed her last-minute choice, revealing that she stands by her decision even as she was scared to let down her fans. She said:
“I definitely felt everyone’s disappointment, and I was devastated, and I was frightened about letting them down. I thought I could pull it together and make it work, and I couldn’t, and I stand by that decision.”
Adele stated that at the end of the day, the Sin City show was just not “good enough.” She likewise shared this sentiment when she initially postponed her residency back in January. Adele went on to say:
“You can’t buy me, you can’t buy me for nothing.
I’m not going to just do a show because I have to, or because people are going to be let down, or because we’re going to lose loads of money.”
She spoke more about how her choice was a difficult one, sharing that she was faced with massive criticism following her decision:
“I was a shell of a person for a couple of months. I just had to wait it out and just grieve it, I guess, just grieve he shows and get over the guilt, but it was brutal.”
As to whether fans can expect to see her on the Vegas Strip, the 34-year-old singer had this to say:
“Of course, I could be someone on TikTok or Instagram Live every day being like, ‘I’m working on it. Of course, I’m working on it!
[But] I’m not gonna update you it I ain’t got nothing to update you with because that just leads to more disappointment.”
