Adele was a guest on ‘The Q Interview’ where she spoke about her latest album ’30’.
She also spoke about ‘My Little Love’ – a song she wrote for her son, Angelo.
The 15-time Grammy winner started by explaining what made her record the song.
She says there was a time she fell apart and her son could see her struggling.
“I think a lot of parents hide things from their kids, as we should in most cases, but I couldn’t hide from him. He could see me even clearer if I tried to hide from him,” she said.
She added that she wrote it to help him understand that she didn’t always have things under control while going through her recent divorce to Angelo’s father, Simon Konecki.
“I wrote it to shed some light that I didn’t always have it together,” she said.
The ‘Hello’ hitmaker says her son is a very private person and might later “hate” the song.
“He’ll probably go through stages of hating it when he’s a teenager but it was an important part of the puzzle I was trying to figure out of my life — not the album — so I had to include it,” she said.
Adele spoke about the lyrics, “I don’t really know what I’m doing”, in the song.
She says this would confuse any six-year-old who looks up to his parents, thinking they know it all.
“Imagine hearing that as a six-year-old. ‘What do you mean you don’t know what you’re doing?’ You panic, and your whole world would implode,” she says.
However, the singer says she was just trying to be clear and honest with his son.
