Adele: If An Ex Wrote A Song About Me I Would "s**t Myself"
Adele became a worldwide success after she wrote songs about an ex who broke her heart. However, the singer amusingly admitted that if her ex had written songs about her, she would be absolutely “mortified.” The star appeared on NBC’s The Today Show and was asked how she would feel if the tables were turned. She said: "I'd f**king s**t myself. I'd be mortified...
But also if they wrote songs about me, they'd be [like], 'This song's about Adele'. I've never given any names ever, but everyone's going to know this song's about me. No one actually knows who my songs are about."
The ‘21’ singer went on to admit that if she had known how big her career was going to become, she would have left out certain intimate lyrics.
"I do wish I'd kept a lot of things to myself, but I never knew the album was going to be so big. I will be more wary when I go into things now. It is really sad but it's also to protect the people I love. I don't see why my career and my lifestyle should affect people when it's not their dream; it's got nothing to do with them.”
Adele said that she has learnt her lesson about being so candid, particularly in interviews: "In the songs I can still be really, really direct but in interviews when I'm explaining my songs I shouldn't be so direct about who they're about."
