Adele’s a “lioness”, making sure her son grows up humble

Adele sure knows how to make proper hits and dominate the music world but, in the end, she’s just like the rest of us, a human woman, a 27-year-old mother of one with all her problems and worries.

Gracing the cover of December’s 28 issue of TIME magazine, Adele says she is “deeply” protective of her family as far as fame’s concerned (the Grammy-winning singer had a three-years-old son Angelo with her partner Simon Konecki), “If you try to intrude or come near my family, I’m a lioness. Especially because my boyfriend isn’t famous. So I think it’s really unfair for anyone to want unlimited access to my family when we’re not a brand.”

Adele also reveals in an interview her little boy is helping her to stay calm through it all even though she can’t be around him as much. She says, “The other day I was saying, ‘Oh God, I’m finding this really hard again with a kid.’ I have no time for myself because in between doing this, all my spare time is with him. But then I realised, he’s been keeping me totally cool and calm about the whole thing.”

As for parenting, Adele says she wants her son to grow up unspoilt by privilege “I’m very self-conscious that I have a kid, and I don’t want him being one of those dickheads, who grows up being, like, ‘Driver, driver! I have no clean clothes! […] Well, have you washed them?‘ I really don’t want him growing up like that. I’m very conscious of it.”


Well, we know you’re conscious and all but it seems to us you’re on your way to winning motherhood, too, Adele.
