We have heard that success doesn’t come to you overnight. For it, you have to go through pain, sacrifice, pressure and things which you haven’t think of. When we take celebrities as an inspiration for fashion, we must take their journey as a strong message for our life as well. Adele is one of the celebrities who has gone through a tough time to be what they are today.
Adele’s father abandoned her when she was two years old. Her mother was only 18 years old when she was born and had to raise her on her own. They lived in government-subsidized housing and moved around a lot. Adele attended over 10 different schools. She never dream of being famous. After graduating from school she wanted to help other artists to achieve their dreams instead of achieving her own. A friend of her uploaded a 3 track demo of her singing on Myspace with telling her. The demo then found two years later by a recording label. She then got the courage to record her first album “19” which sold more than 10 million copies. During that time Adele got involved in a romantic relationship with a man 10 years older than her. Their relationship was this much intense that he had a major impact on her life. She said: “He made me an adult”
But God wanted something more better for her. Unfortunately he ended the relationship with her after 18 months and got engaged to someone else. Adele couldn’t go through this trauma and then she used her pain to write her greatest hit, “Someone like you”.
In 2011 Adele had to stop singing and undergo vocal chords surgery. She came back in 2012 stronger than ever. She gave her first performance at the Grammy Awards for which she won 6 Awards.
Adele has stage freight, gets anxiety attacks and even vomits when she has to face her fears. Despite constant pressure from the media to lose weight, Adele refuses to conform to any stereotypical look.
And now at the age of 29, She has already sold 100 million records and been named one of Time’s most influential people in the world twice.
She said: “I think I remind everyone of themselves. Not saying everyone is my size, but it’s relatable because I’m not perfect, and I think a lot of people are portrayed as perfect, unreachable and untouchable.”
