Adele says her nine-year-old son Angelo is a big fan of Billie Eilish

Homepage - News

Regardless of her being a superstar singer, Adele's son Angelo turns out to be obsessed with songs from another artist rather than his Grammy-winning mother's.

According to CNN, Adele has revealed her nine-year-old son Angelo's biggest music idol. Rather than admiring his famous mother, Angelo stands in awe of American singer Billie Eilish and is 'obsessed' with the 20-year-old Gen Z pop star's song lyrics. The Hello singer added that she once had to take Angelo to Billie's concert at the O2 in London immediately after a trip to New York with her boyfriend.

Angelo's interest in songwriting

Born on October 19, 2012, Angelo Adkins is the only child of Adele and her ex-husband, entrepreneur Simon Konecki. The couple began dating in 2011 before walking down the aisle in 2018, only to go their separate ways after three years of marriage. Following their amicable divorce, the powerhouse vocalist and Konecki have been co-parenting Angelo. Adele's latest album 30, which is her fourth consecutive number-one album, is inspired on the star's marriage, divorce, and most importantly, motherhood after the 'blessed' arrival of Angelo.

Aside from his veneration for the Bad Guy singer, Angelo is said to have developed a penchant for songwriting, much like his mother. Adele also revealed that Angelo will 'go up to [his room] after school and read all the lyrics and then he’ll want to discuss them' with her, as reported by Hello!.

The revelation came during Adele's interview with Elle magazine, in which she opened up about her romantic relationship and future plans for her family.

Adele wants to have more children

Since her divorce, Adele has kept her private life relatively under wraps. The interview with Elle, therefore, was one rare occasion on which the winner of fifteen Grammy Awards gave fans a glimpse into her life lately. The Rolling In The Deep singer shared that she has 'never been in love like this' when talking about the blossoming romance with her new boyfriend, sports agent Rich Paul. Adele and Paul first met at a party many years ago but only started a romantic relationship in July 2021 after they were photographed attending a basketball game together.

She told the publication about being smitten with Paul: 'I've never been in love like this. I'm obsessed with him.'

The 34-year-old superstar also made a lovely confession about her intention of walking down the aisle for the second time, saying 'Yes, absolutely' when asked about moving on with Paul.

However, the Set Fire To The Rain singer didn't directly answer when asked whether the couple are engaged after a year of dating. She beat about the bush:

'Well! Well. Well, I'm not married ... I'm not married ... I'm just in love! I'm happy as I'll ever be. I might as well be married.'

But when the publication pushed her for the answer, Adele admitted: 'I'm not engaged. I just love high-end jewelry, boy.'

The 12-time Brits Award winner also opened up about her plan to have more children in the future, saying: 'I definitely want more kids. I'm a homemaker and I'm a matriarch, and a stable life helps me with my music.'

She is focusing on her upcoming Las Vegas residency

Elsewhere in the interview, Adele claimed that at the moment, she is putting every effort into her upcoming Las Vegas residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace after the last one was previously postponed. Admitting that the cancelation was 'the worst moment in my career, by far', Adele, who has since rescheduled the residency, is preparing for her much-anticipated Las Vegas comeback next year. She gave fans a teaser for the show, which will run from November 18 until March 25, 2023: 'I'm not gonna give too much away about it, but the show grows. It's all about the music, and it's really, really nostalgic. It's gonna be really beautiful.'

Explaining what went wrong that led to the residency's cancelation in January, Adele cited the 'lack of intimacy':

'There was just no soul in it. The stage setup wasn't right. It was very disconnected from me and my band, and it lacked intimacy. And maybe I tried too hard to give it those things in such a controlled environment.'

The Hello singer added how 'embarrassed' she was after her decision was met with backlash and disappointment from fans. But she said she has found a silver lining from the brief fall from grace, saying:

'It actually made my confidence in myself grow, because it was a very brave thing to do. And I don’t think many people would have done what I did. I’m very proud of myself for standing by my artistic needs.'
