“I’m still so emotional”
Adele has revealed she is undergoing therapy again to cope with the enormity of her Las Vegas residency, having already had “five sessions a day” during her divorce.
The Hello singer is buzzing with her Weekends With Adele concert series in Vegas, which launched last month after a 10-month delay due to production issues. Until March, Adele, 34, will perform every Friday and Saturday at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
It’s no secret that live performances have been difficult for the singer, as she’s been open about stage fright before.
Adele has now shared that she is speaking to a therapist again for the first time since having sessions during her divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki in 2019.
Speaking to the public on her show in Vegas on Saturday, the Easy On Me hitmaker explained, “I started going to therapy again because I went a few years without it. I needed to start.
“Before, obviously, when I was going through my divorce, I was basically having five therapy sessions a day.”
In a clip shared by a viewer, Adele continued, “But I stopped holding myself accountable for my own behavior and the things I would say.
“But now I do it because I just want to make sure I recharge every week to make sure I can give it all to you.”
She started crying, adding, “And my whole therapy session this week was really interesting. It was about those shows. I’m still so emotional. I love making music, but there’s something about playing live that terrifies me and fills me with dread.
‘That’s why I’m not a big touring artist. I did it last time to prove I could do it. But this experience of being in a room of this size, I think I could be a living artist for the rest of my life.
The Grammy winner, who shares 10-year-old son Angelo with Simon and is now in a relationship with sports agent Rich Paul.
During Saturday’s performance, Adele confirmed she was following the World Cup and expressed her relief that Argentina won their quarter-final match against the Netherlands on Friday.
Speaking to an Argentinian spectator, she said: “Thank God you won on penalties. I love you Messi.’
