Adele on Battling Stage Fright: “It’s Actually Getting Worse”

Adele is back with her new album '25' and says she's still struggling to get over her constant stage fright.

T he singer admits her nerves often still get the better of her. While filming for an upcoming U.S. TV special, Adele says she was trying to stay calm and level but in the end became very nervous. After she began singing, it took her a few songs to begin to feel comfortable:

“I was trying to be deadpan, like, trying to be a diva, and I couldn’t! I just saw the crowd and I melted. I was so happy to be there. I was very, very nervous. After about the second or third song, I was chilled, I was alright.”

Adele says her fear often stops her from trying out anything new and her fright is “actually getting worse”. She adds that when it kicks in, she can really act up and behave badly as she tries to deal with her nerves:

“(I get) so nervous with live performances that I’m too frightened to try anything new. It’s actually getting worse. Or it’s just not getting better, so I feel like it’s getting worse, because it should’ve gotten better by now. (When I’m nervous I’m) fidgety, I moan, I complain, I try and escape, I try to get out, belch…!”

Speaking on her partner Simon Konecki, Adele recalls the first time he saw her sing live in concert, which was back at the 2012 Grammy Awards. She was also recovering from surgery and that performance ended up being very memorable:

“The first time he saw me was at the (2012) Grammys, which was the first time I’d opened my mouth to sing after my surgery (in 2011). It was his first whole show that he’s seen and he loved it, it was such a great moment. He approved. Even if it was rubbish I think he’d approve!”
