Adele says people wanted her to 'f***ing die' after she cancelled her Vegas tour
| Last updated
Adele made an emotional - and pretty shocking - revelation recently as she opened up about the cancellation of her run of shows in Las Vegas during January last year.
When the singer cancelled her entire run of shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace – less than 24 hours before the first concert was due to begin - fans were left understandably gutted.
Thankfully for them though, Adele kicked off her Vegas residency in November last year, with the first leg wrapping up just last weekend.
During a refreshingly emotional final performance of the first leg of her residency on Saturday (25 March), the 'Easy on Me' singer gushed to her audience that she felt the residency was a highlight of her career.
She also admitted that the shows have given her back a purpose.
Her popular Vegas residency saw her sell more than 100 million records worldwide and much to fan's delight, she will be welcomed back to the city in June this year after the residency was extended due to its massive popularity.
But she admitted that the reception wasn't always so positive.
She opened up with tears in her eyes to her audience about the 2022 cancellation, admitting: “It was the worst thing I’d ever felt in my career. And the f**king s**t people were saying about me. Jesus Christ.”
She then added: "People are mean. “They wanted me to f**king die.”
The Tottenham local then said defiantly: “I came back and, as usual, I smashed it. That was definitely the London woman. You definitely cannot take that out of me ever.”
She confessed that her boyfriend, American sports agent Rich Paul, was a major driving factor for doing the residency in the first place.
The singer also spoke about her reasons for quitting booze.
She revealed that one day she drank an astonishing four bottles of wine before lunch, which sparked her decision to quit booze - although the admission was made holding a celebratory glass of wine on stage.
The 34-year-old singer made headlines in 2019 by losing a massive seven stone after cutting sugar and booze from her diet.
She told Oprah Winfrey during a CBS interview last year that she had 'stopped drinking' after hearing the news that her estranged dad, Mark Evans, was dying from bowel cancer in May 2021.
Her divorce from ex-husband, Simon Konecki, during the same year was also a factor.
The singer shares her nine-year-old son, Angelo Adkins, with the charity boss.
She said: "That’s one great way of really sort of getting to know yourself, is just drinking water and being sober as anything.”
