'I'm the happiest I've ever... been': Adele reveals she's back on therapy to prioritize her mental health
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: Singer Adele has shared with fans that she is taking therapy once again, and making sure her mental health remains a priority. The ‘Hello’ singer revealed this intimate detail candidly as she resumes her ‘Weekends with Adele’ Las Vegas residency. Adele started therapy first after divorcing her ex-husband Simon Konecki back in 2019.
The 34-year-old singer also shares her 10-year-old son, Angelo, with him. "Before, obviously, when I was going through my divorce, I was like, basically in like five therapy sessions a day. But I stopped holding myself accountable for my own behavior and the things I would say and it's because I would always fall back on my therapist,” Adele confessed to fans with a laugh before adding, "I needed to just hold myself accountable for it. But now I am doing it because I just want to make sure I'm topping myself up every week to make sure I can give you everything." The 15-time Grammy winner said of returning to the regular sessions, and what they talked about in her latest session with her therapists, "I love making music, but there is something about performing live that actually terrifies me and fills me with dread normally," according to People.

The singer-songwriter went on, "That's why I am not a big touring artist. I did it last time to prove I could do it. But this experience of being in a room this size, I think I might be a live artist for the rest of my life." Adele also explained the reason why she postponed her shows was that she wanted to be ‘perfect’ and well-prepared, "If my voice ain't top-notch that's alright, but my soul is top-notch, I'll tell you that — that's what I try to say to my therapist." The ‘Rolling in the Deep’ singer got emotional about the help she is getting and said, "Having the human interaction every weekend is honestly— I'm the happiest I've ever ever ever ever been."
Adele released her rescheduled dates in July after she canceled shows amid ‘behind-the-scenes production issues’. Now, as per the new dates, the shows will now go until March 25, next year. "It would have been a really half-arsed show and I can't do that," she said on the Graham Norton show in January. "People will see straight through me up on the stage. … I've never done anything like that in my life, and I'm not going to start now."
