Adele plans to take a five-year break to focus on her relationship.
The Rolling in the Deep hitmaker believes it is important to concentrate on her romance with Simon Konecki because when she has prioritised her career in the past it has led to heartbreak in her personal life.
Asked about her future plans, she said: “I am f***ing 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.”
The 23-year-old singer believes she is a good girlfriend because she likes to cook, makes people laugh and enjoys sex, though she admits her dramatic tendencies can cause problems.
She told the new issue of America’s Vogue magazine: “I love a bit of drama. That’s a bad thing. I can flip really quickly. I am not bipolar, but I go from, ‘Oh, my God, I love you’ to, ‘Get the f**k out of my house!’ really quickly.
“And I never sit there and talk about it. I give them the silent treatment. They’re like, ‘Tell me what I’ve done so I can say sorry!’ What else? It used to be that I loved a drink a bit too much. But I don’t drink no more.
“The good things: 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!”
Adele made her live comeback following surgery on a throat haemorrhage at the Grammy Awards on Sunday and credits Simon – who accompanied her to the event – for helping her recover from the major procedure.
The Someone Like You singer – who went home with six prizes from the ceremony – said: “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.”
