Adele - Adele Happy To Be Unlucky In Love

Subscribe to Adele alerts

Adele feels "lucky" to have split from her boyfriend - because it inspired her songwriting.

The 22-year-old musician - whose debut LP '19' was about the demise of her first serious relationship - admits she managed to find some positives from seeing another romance end while she was working on her follow-up record '21'.

She said: "I'm lucky. Before I met my ex, I was panicking, thinking what was I going to write my second album about; hotels and air miles? No one can relate to that.

"So I'm very lucky that I met him and I'm lucky we broke up as well."

Despite her positive tone, the 'Chasing Pavements' hitmaker admits she was "devastated" by the separation.

She added to the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I was devastated. I was so upset. I thought my world had ended. But life goes on. You think you're gonna die but you don't."

Though she likes to channel her emotions into her songwriting, Adele admits the creative process can be a difficult experience.

She said: "The experience of writing this record was quite exhausting. I was trying to explain to myself why the relationship broke down, to the point I actually forgot about people hearing it.

"When I did, 'Someone Like You' live on TV, I got so upset, wondering and hoping and wishing my ex would be watching it, I went back to my dressing room and sobbed."
