Adele’s Rumored Next ’25’ Single Is “Water Under The Bridge”

In a sea of black and white tour photos, Adele’s Instagram gets a much needed breath of fresh air when she shared her new cover for the fashion mag.

Some of the highlights:

Battling postpartum depression: “I had really bad postpartum depression after I had my son, and it frightened me. […] My friends who didn’t have kids would get annoyed with me…whereas I knew I could just sit there and chat absolute mush with my friends who had children, and we wouldn’t judge each other. One day I said to a friend, ‘I ******’ hate this,’ and she just burst into tears and said, ‘I ******’ hate this, too.’ And it was done. It lifted. My knowledge of postpartum—or post-natal, as we call it in England—is that you don’t want to be with your child; you’re worried you might hurt your child; you’re worried you weren’t doing a good job. But I was obsessed with my child. I felt very inadequate; I felt like I’d made the worst decision of my life. It can come in many different forms. Eventually I just said, I’m going to give myself an afternoon a week, just to do whatever the **** I want without my baby. A friend of mine said, ‘Really? Don’t you feel bad?’ I said, I do, but not as bad as I’d feel if I didn’t do it.”

New music: “I’d still like to make records, but I’d be fine if I never heard [the applause] again.”

Drinking less: “Having a hangover with a child is torture,” she says. “Just imagine an annoying three-year-old who knows something’s wrong; it’s hell.” She goes on to say, “I used to love to be drunk, but as I got more famous I would wake up the next morning and think, What the **** did I say and who the **** did I say it to? […] I can see from an outsider’s perspective that I will never write songs as good as the ones that are on 21, but I’m not as indulgent as I was then, and I don’t have time to fall apart like I did then. I was completely off my face writing that album, and a drunk tongue is an honest one. I would drink two bottles of wine, and I would chain-smoke. Then I’d write the lyrics down and the next morning think, ****, that’s quite good. Then I’d find the melody. But since I’ve had my baby, I’m not as carefree as I used to be.”

I wonder if Donald Trump has anything to say about this, cause it’s gorgeous.
