Adele has revealed she will be taking a break from music after her Las Vegas residency as she plans on getting a degree in English Literature.
The singer – who released the music video for her new song I Drink Wine on Wednesday – said she wishes she had gone to university after leaving school.
Speaking in a fan Q&A in Los Angeles seen by The Sun, Adele, 34, said she will complete an online course in order to get the degree.
She said: ‘After Vegas, I really want to get a degree in English Literature. If I hadn’t made it in my singing, I think I would definitely be a teacher. I think I’d be an English Lit teacher.
‘I definitely feel like I use my passion of English Lit in what I do. But even though it’s not like I’d go on to get a job from my degree, I wish I had gone to university, I wish I’d had that experience.
‘I won’t go to a university, I’ll do it online and with a tutor, but that’s my plan for 2025. It’s just to get the qualifications.
Adele’s Las Vegas residency will begin in November after she previously postponed the shows at the last minute in January.
The singer announced the new dates in July, months after leaving fans thousands of pounds out of pocket when she pulled the plug with just 24 hours notice.
After rescheduled dates for the gig were leaked, the singer took to Instagram in July to confirm the show will start in November as she thanked fans for their ‘patience’ and revealed that priority will be given to existing ticket holders.
