British singer Adele has revealed the secret behind the success of her bestselling album 21. Believe it or not, she wrote the best lyrics of the album when she was drunk.
“I used to have to lock myself away in my house, get pretty drunk and write a drunk diary - and that was the first time I could admit things to myself. A drunk tongue is an honest one in my opinion and the next morning I would read it through with an awful hangover and, in the cold light of day, had to absorb my feelings about myself. I was a bit scared that I wouldn't be articulate enough," The Sun quoted Adele as saying.
She said that she thought she knew everything. “When I was 18 or 19 I didn't regret anything, I was very much a teenager and thought I knew it all and that there was nothing else I could learn. I started realising my own flaws and my disappointments and I started regretting a lot of stuff. It was quite an awakening," she added.
The “Rolling In The Deep" singer revealed that she wrote a track for Jake Gyllenhaal's film Love And Other Drugs was was turned down. “I really wanted to have the soundtrack for Love And Other Drugs. I was in for a good shot but I submitted the wrong song. I love that kind of movie. Maybe next time," she said, adding, “I want to do a Martin Scorsese film. I don't know if I am trained enough to offer something that good for one of his movies."
