Adele’s fans were distraught when stories surfaced yesterday that the Rolling in the Deep singer was to take “four to five years” off from music.

The reports emerged after Adele gave an interview to Vogue magazine, saying that she wanted to spend some quality time with new love Simon Konecki.

She told the iconic publication: “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.”

But it seems the star was perhaps being a little sarcastic, and has now cleared up the comments.
Writing on her official website, Adele spoke about her delight at winning a mammoth six Grammy Awards on Sunday night, before addressing the ‘five year break’ stories.

She said: “Oh goodness!! I’m absoloutly flabbergasted! In between laughing my head off, welling up, needing to sit down and trying to maintain an open fire (which is pretty much impossible huh!?) I keep having flashbacks to Sunday night [sic].”

The star continued: “The night itself was so amazing, I met so many incredible people and everyone we’ve lost this year were on our minds and in our hearts and it was lovely to remember them all together as fans and friends.

“I’ve a few days off now, and then it’s the Brit Awards here at home and then I’m straight into the studio. BOYYAHH! 5 years? More like 5 days!”

Phew – we thought Adele was going to bow out just as her career reached an amazing new high after her Grammy success! We can just about handle five days...

Adele is expected to perform at next week’s BRIT Awards, which are being held at the O2 Arena on Tuesday, February 21.

She is nominated for three gongs at the music ceremony - British Female Solo Artist, British Single for Someone Like You and Mastercard British Album of the Year for 21.
