Adele Says That Once Her Las Vegas Residency Is Over, She Plans To Take A Break From Music To Study English Literature
Some of us poors with endless student loan debt fantasize about having never attended college and instead striking it rich back in our youth because our mom helped release our sister’s sex tape (allegedly); but if you’re a millionaire like Kim Kardashian or Adele, apparently the dream is to further your studies just for funsies, because we all know Kim’s not going to step foot in court (as a lawyer, anyway). And now Adele just revealed that although she doesn’t plan to use the degree for anything, she’s going to stop making music for a bit to study English Literature after her residency ends.
According to The Sun, Adele held a Q&A session in Los Angeles after releasing her whimsical watery video for I Drink Wine yesterday, where she talked about her post-residency plans (which is a little presumptuous if you ask me since her residency hasn’t even started yet after she decided to reschedule it at the eleventh hour despite it immediately selling out last January when it was originally supposed to start). But, she says that English Literature has shaped her as an artist, and she wants to check “earning a degree” off her bucket list.
She said: “After Vegas I really want to get a degree in English Literature. If I hadn’t made it in my singing, I think I would definitely be a teacher. I think I’d be an English Lit teacher.
“I definitely feel like I use my passion of English Lit in what I do. But even though it’s not like I’d go on to get a job from my degree, I wish I had gone to university, I wish I’d had that experience.
She will kick off her Weekends With Adele residency next month after postponing it with just hours’ notice in January.
And unfortunately, we won’t get to see Adele do the walk-of-shame to class in someone else’s sweatshirt, leggings with “PINK” across the ass, and scuffed-up Uggs; because she doesn’t plan to attend a brick-and-mortar school.
“I won’t go to a university, I’ll do it online and with a tutor, but that’s my plan for 2025. It’s just to get the qualifications.”
I actually support her plan to take a step back, because although her album, 21, provided the perfect soundtrack for many a melancholy millennial, I found her recent 30 more geared toward serving as the background music for my annoying wait in a Chipotle line. And if she decides to write any English Lit during her studies, I can’t wait to hear the tale of her voyage to deciding that this getup was a good idea, followed by her harrowing journey to the realization that the very moment she lost her damn mind was with that first twist of the Bantu knot.
