Brit and Grammy-winner Adele wants to study for an English Literature degree once her upcoming Las Vegas residency has been completed.
During a Q&A session in Los Angeles on Monday, she said: ”After Vegas, I want to get a degree in English Literature.
”If hadn’t made it singing, I think I would be an English Lit teacher”.
The 34-year-old singer will play a belated run of dates at the Caesars Palace hotel, beginning next month.
”I definitely think I use my passion for English lit in what I do. I wish I’s gone to university and had that experience, but I will do it online with a tutor”.
She continued: ”That’s my plan for 2025, just to get the qualification”.
The news will be music to the ears of her old English teacher Ms. McDonald, who had an emotional surprise reunion with the star on stage during a star-studded ITV UK comeback concert last year.
During An Audience with Adele, the singer was asked questions by celebrities inside the London Palladium, with Harry Potter and Love Actually actress Emma Thompson asking her who had inspired her when she was younger.
She replied with a story about Ms. McDonald, saying: ”She was cool and so relatable and likable, that I really looked forward to my English lessons”.
‘She left in year eight but she got me really into literature, I’ve always been obsessed with English, and obviously not I write lyrics”, Adele explained.
The performer then got a shock when it was revealed Ms. McDonald was in the audience and the teacher got up to join the singer on stage.
”You’re an amazing darling, I am so proud of you”, she told Adele, bringing her to tears, so much so that she had to get her makeup fixed before carrying on with the show.
After postponing her widely discussed Las Vegas residency earlier this year to her fans’ dismay, due to delivery delays and Covid, Adele, who now resides in L.A. is finally set to perform in Sin City next month.
Ahead of the shows, the singer this week released a new music video to accompany her (latest) soulful break-up ballad, I Drink Wine, taken from her fourth studio album- the biggest-selling album of 2021.
