So why did the ‘Hello’ singer turn down the ‘Halo‘ crooner???
When news broke that Adele had irrepressibly turned down offers from Bey’s Kingdom for a duet, fans responded with mixed reactions, with a lot of them expressing confidence that Adele is definitely better off without the duet.
Adele, whose upcoming album, 25, is due in stores on November 20, has expressed her reasons for turning down the duet offer, revealing that she does not like being entangled in fame.
During an interview, in which she was the cover girl for the ID magazine, she said:
“I’m just frightened of it, you know? Frightened of it destroying me and it ruining me, and me getting lost and turning into some of the people that I love with my whole musical heart. I get frightened. And I get frightened for the people that I love, feeling like they’ve lost me.”…
Adele went on to add that: “It’s basically a bit like Stars In Their Eyes when you go into the smoke and you come out as someone else. I get worried of them looking at me going into the smoke and never coming out. It’s a bit toxic, fame. I’ve got enough toxins in me body, I don’t need any of that!”.
Hmmmn, quite deep….
Bold and brave move by the British-born Grammy winner, and Viva Naija believes her reasons and dreams are valid.
