UK Singing Sensation Adele Reveals Drinking Problem

In a newly released book called “Adele: The Biography,” the award-winning singer reveals she once had a drinking problem that was so bad, she performed drunk on stage and sometimes forgot the words to her songs. But she’s turned her life around thanks to a new diet and exercise.

Adele says she knew she had a drinking problem midway through her first tour. “I got so drunk by the time I went on at 2 a.m. I had forgotten the words to my own songs … It was the worst thing ever,” the 24-year-old singer told the author.

Apart from her drunken antics she also battled weight problems. “I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that,” she said in an interview.

Things took a change for the better when the singer quitting smoking and drinking earlier this year. She began a strict diet and fitness regimen. According to some estimates she’s lost about 20 pounds.

She blames her alcohol addiction on the first boy who broke her heart. Adele’s first major heartache involved a bisexual boy, whom she fell in love with, but who eventually cheated. Her estranged father was also an alcoholic. “Adele would drink more than normal to salve the heartbreak,” Shapiro writes. She’s always searched for love that she never received from her father.

Good thing she saw the light. We can’t deal with another ‘Houston-we-have-a-problem‘ situation.
