Days after winning six Grammys, British singer Adele has revealed plans to take a five-year break from music to focus on her new relationship.
The singer told US Vogue magazine in its upcoming March issue that she wants to focus on spending time with her boyfriend so she won’t suffer another heartbreak like the one that led her write songs like her hit Someone Like You.
Asked about her future plans, she told the magazine:
“I am …….off for four or five years. If I am constantly working, my relationships fail.’ So at least now I can have enough time to write a happy record. And be in love and be happy…And then I don’t know what I’ll do. Get married. Have some kids. Plant a nice vegetable patch.”

However, the Adele gave the interview in December as she was recovering from throat surgery long before her Grammy sweep and a spike to her popularity. Her boyfriend, Simon Konecki, 37, attended the show with her on Sunday. He runs a non-profit in England.
The 23-year-old singer gave a revealing interview to the magazine, saying she is a good girlfriend: “I am attentive. I will do anything for my man. I am a good cook. I’m funny. Always want to have sex. Well, most girls don’t!”
Her bad side: “ I love a bit of drama. I can flip really quickly. I am not bipolar, but I go from, ‘Oh, my God, I love you’ to, ‘Get the ….out of my house!’ really quickly. And I never sit there and talk about it. I give them the silent treatment.”
Adele, who gave her first live performance following throat surgery at the Grammy Awards on Sunday, credits Simon – who accompanied her to the event – for helping her recover from the major procedure.
“He’s wonderful. And he’s proud of me, but he don’t care about what I do or what other people think. He looks after me. I don’t think I would have gotten through the recovery for my surgery if it hadn’t been for him,” she said.
Adele told the magazine the silence brought into her life by the surgery was life-changing:
“Before my life was so fast-paced I could hardly ever remember the bulk of my day. I think I just needed to be silenced. And when you are silent, everyone around you is silent. So the noise in my life just stopped. It was like floating in the sea for the weeks. It was brilliant.”
