Adele makes candid alcohol confession at Las Vegas show

Adele made a candid confession at her Las Vegas show in recent days, revealing to the crowd that she was a “borderline alcoholic” throughout her 20s.

The British singer spoke openly in between songs as she engaged in playful banter with her fans. Upon seeing audience members drinking “a pint” of whiskey sour during her concert at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace, the singer shared that she had only just given up alcohol.

“I stopped drinking … maybe, like, three and a half months ago,” the 35-year-old said on stage.

“It’s boring. I mean, oh my God, it’s boring. I was literally borderline alcoholic for quite a lot of my 20s, but I miss it so much. I cut out caffeine [too].”

“So, enjoy your whiskey sour. I’m very, very jealous,” she added.

Adele has spoken previously about her relationship with alcohol. At her concert back in March, she told the audience she drank heavily after moving to the US during the pandemic.

“I remember when I came here in Covid, in lockdown. It was 11am, and I was definitely, like, four bottles of wine in — like we all were,” she told the outlet.

“I said in 2020 that I wanted to put my album out. And we were all at home just drunk basically.”

In 2021, during an interview with Vogue, Adele said her “close relationship” with alcohol stemmed from her own father, Mark Evans’ addiction.

Father and daughter were estranged for most of Adele’s career, and it wasn’t until the lead up to his death in May 2021 that the pair were able to find closure with each other.

While Evans died from a long battle with bowel cancer at the age of 57, he struggled with alcohol addiction for most of his life.

“I was always very fascinated by alcohol. It’s what kept my dad from me. So I always wanted to know what was so great about it,” she said of her dad, who walked out on the singer’s family when she was a child.

Evans himself would be the first to admit he was not present in Adele’s life growing up.

In an interview with The Sun in 2011, he said: “I was a rotten father at a time when she really needed me. I was putting away two litres of vodka and seven or eight pints of Stella [beer] every day.”
