Adele Cries Reflecting On Rich Paul’s Memoir In Rare Interview
Adele is being honored and getting honest. The “Easy On Me” singer was honored with the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award at The Hollywood Reporter’s annual Women in Entertainment event on Thursday and got emotional in a rare new interview with the publication, where she opens up about motherhood, her love life, and her booming career. Adele who shares her 11-year-old son, Angelo, with her ex-husband, Simon Konecki, reflected on if becoming a mother made her look at her own mom differently. “You realize how hard adulting is. So on top of them being your mum, they’re also going through their own shit. I struggle not to show my emotions to Angelo with other things I’m going through. And I think that’s OK. Sometimes I wish I could hide it a bit less. But also, it’s not easy being an adult for anybody, in any situation,” she said. One thing she’s not afraid to hide is her love for her son, and also gushed about volunteering at his school. “I’m thriving a bit. Now there are so many things his school does the most, with community vibes, which is fantastic. The kids don’t care. The kids don’t give a flying f–k who I am. And I get, not insecure, but I get nervous around loads of adults and strangers that I don’t know. And so making food for school events, it’s my dream,” she shared. She also got emotional when she reflected on Rich Paul’s book “Lucky Me: A Memoir of Changing the Odds.” “Rich and I have always known everything about each other since the day we got together. It was very emotional reading about his mum, because obviously she’s not with us, so I’ve never met her. And she’s such a big part of Rich and the kids and the kids’ mum’s life and stuff like that. But I knew all about it. I’m getting a bit emotional (starts crying). It was hard for him to write that,” she revealed.
