It was a good week for Adele fans. Emphasis on was.
On the heels of her six Grammy noms, the singer first delighted us by finally (!) taking over her Twitter account. Then we got a glimpse of the gal as she made her way around London following her recent throat surgery.
But now comes word—from Adele herself—that the "Rolling in the Deep" songstress isn't planning on rolling out any more music anytime soon.
"I'm really looking forward to some time to do nothing," Adele tells Billboard when asked about the near future.
And then this...
"I imagine I'll be 25 or 26 by the time my next record comes out, as I haven't even thought about my third record yet," she reveals.
Yikes. At first, that may not sound like a long time. But then, when you consider she's only 23 now, even just two or three years without new Adele material is going to feel like an eternity.
"I'm just gonna lay some concrete, set up home and just 'be' for a bit," she adds. "I'll disappear and come back with a record when it's good enough. There will be no new music until it's good enough and until I'm ready."
OK. Fair enough. Adele has certainly earned the right to take it easy. And we're sure when she does reappear, it'll have been worth the wait.
