Adele Wants To Write A Happy Record

Adele cleaned up Sunday’s Grammy Awards Ceremony, winning all of the six awards she was nominated for. Though the album that propelled her to these Grammy wins, 2011’s 21, is full of heartache and lonely possibility, for Adele, it may be time to sing a new direction.
In the upcoming March issue of Vogue, Adele spoke out about people’s perceptions of her, and how the topics within her songs may have gone a long way to solidify these opinions.
“Come on! I’m wifey material! I’m great. No one’s got to be brave. It’s not like, ‘You fuck me over and I’m going to write a record and make you the most hated man in the world.' I am never writing a breakup record again, by the way. I’m done with being a bitter witch.”
While I am pretty sure people’s perceptions are not half as bad as “bitter witch,” I do understand her sentiment. Adele is a woman known for writing after breakups, which can be a great way to get over a negative experience, but can be a bad way to let the public know you are an optimistic individual.
“People think that I’m fucking miserable. They are really surprised when they meet me that I’m chatty and bubbly and kind of quite carefree really. I’m the total opposite of my records.”
The key will be writing a great record with Adele’s soulful voice that has a perky, poppy quality. I don’t know if the “Rolling in the Deep” singer has it in her, but if she does, she might find herself with some even bigger payoffs in the future. I hear Katrina and the Waves’ “Walking on Sunshine” still makes like a million bucks every year.
