In an interview on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs, Adele cleared the air saying she is not doing it as it was simply not up to her standard. The ‘Rolling in the Deep’ hitmaker also added that “You can’t buy me, you can’t buy me for nothing.”

‘I was devastated and I was frightened’

Taking a firm stance on her decision to not do the Las Vegas residency, Adele in her latest interview asserted, “I definitely felt everyone’s disappointment and I was devastated and I was frightened about letting them down, and I thought I could pull it together and make it work and I couldn’t, and I stand by that decision.” She added that the backlash she got for the same was “brutal” that left her as a “shell of a person for a couple of months.”
 
Adele shed further light on the situation saying, “You can’t buy me, you can’t buy me for nothing.” She continued, “I’m not going to just do a show because I have to or because people are going to be let down or because we’re going to lose loads of money. I’m like, ‘the show’s not good enough.” Adele concluded, “I’m not gonna update you if I ain’t got nothing to update you with because that just leads to more disappointment", as reported by Page Six.

What did Adele say earlier on Las Vegas residency?

Adele’s latest statement comes after she apologized profusely for postponing her “Weekends With Adele” residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. She was initially scheduled to play on January 21 and wrap it up in mid-April. In January, Adele had shared an emotional video listing the Covid-19 pandemic as the reason for the Las Vegas residency.
 
“Hey, listen, I'm so sorry but my show ain't ready. We've tried absolutely everything we can to put it together in time and for it to be good enough for you”, said a teary-eyed Adele adding, “But we've been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and COVID. Half my crew, half my team have been down with COVID and they still are. And it's been impossible to finish the show." She continued, “I can't give you what I have right now and I'm gutted. I'm gutted. And I'm sorry it's so last minute” concluding, “We've been awake for over 30 hours now trying to figure it out. We’ve run out of time and I’m so upset and I’m really embarrassed."
