Adele opens up about plans to “f***ing nail” love, marriage, more kids and her rescheduled Las Vegas residency.

The British singer opened up AleThe September cover story is about her sports agent boyfriend Rich Paul, who is renovating their new home with their blended family and the prospect of having more children. He is also shown on the cover Elle UKOctober edition of

“I’ve never been in love like this,” the vocal powerhouse said of Paul, whom she began seeing after her split from husband Simon Konecki in 2021. “I have been obsessed with him.”

Adele, who shares 9-year-old Angelo with Konecki, said she “absolutely” wants to remarry. When asked if she was already married or engaged, she played coy, but ultimately said no. “I’m just in the look! I’m as happy as I’ll ever be. Maybe I’ll get married too.”

As for that rumored engagement ring, she replied, “I just love high jewelry, guys!”

The “Easy on Me” singer, 34, bought a Beverly Hills mansion in May that was previously owned by Sylvester Stallone. It will keep their blended family — Paul, 40, has three children, including a daughter in college — and hopefully a few of their own.

“I definitely want more kids,” she told the outlet. “I’m a housewife and I’m married, and a stable life helps me with my music.”

She often sits courtside with Paul, who represents LeBron James, among other sports superstars. “Lucky for him, I love basketball,” he quipped. He said he encourages her to live more freely. When planning a recent vacation, she said she had always wanted to visit a certain Italian island, but couldn’t because of the paparazzi.

“He was like, ‘You’re going to let this stop you from going to a place you want to go on vacation?'” she said. “He’s like, ‘For a photo, what’s the worst that can happen?'”

When she announced in January that she would postpone her Las Vegas residency at the eleventh hour, she holed up at Paul’s house. With paparazzi swarming outside, she said she couldn’t even go into the garden, feeling “just trapped inside”. At the time, she said, “I was embarrassed. I hid.”

Adele’s tearful announcement of postponing the show came a day before it was due to start. By the time she made the video, she had been up for more than 30 hours, agonizing over the decision, which she had known for a week was the right call. She was just afraid of disappointing everyone.

“It was the worst moment of my career so far,” he admitted. “Until now. I was so excited about those shows. It was devastating.”

Covid was a factor, but even that, something about the show – in the Colosseum on a huge stage – didn’t feel authentic to him.

“It had no soul,” he said. “The stage setup was not right. It was very disconnected from me and my band, and it lacked intimacy. And maybe I tried too hard to give those things in such a controlled environment.”

He said the result was “brutal”. He also left behind the promotion for his album 30 Because “I didn’t want anyone to think I wasn’t trying my best. And I was.”

Adele appears on the cover of Elle’s September issue. She is also on the October cover of Elle UK:

But she came out better for it. “The first two months were really tough. I was embarrassed,” she admitted. “But it really boosted my confidence in myself, because it was a very brave thing to do. And I don’t think a lot of people would have done what I did. I had to stand up to my own artistic needs.” Very proud of it.”

It has been rescheduled and now runs between November 18 and March 25. He changed the stage design, to make the stage look more intimate. She said the show “will tell the story of the beginning of my career so far. I won’t say too much about it, but the show grows. The show grows. It’s all about the music, and it’s really, really nostalgic. It’s really It’s going to be beautiful.”

And while he has big plans for his personal life, “Right now, all that comes to my mind is Vegas. I want to make it.”
