The British singer has admitted her three-year-old boy Angelo – who she had with boyfriend Simon Konecki – doesn’t enjoy listening to her chart-topping tracks and wouldn’t buy his mother’s new album ’25’ even if he could. Asked if Angelo likes her songs, Adele said: ”No. He likes ‘Twinkle Twinkle’, ‘Row, Row, Row Your Boat’, ‘Batman’, stuff like that. He’s not interested in what I do. ”He knows I’m a singer and he loves it, and he’s proud. He knows that it’s going well. But, yeah, he’s not – he wouldn’t buy my record if he could.”
The first song Adele penned for her new record was written for her son, and she admits becoming a mother has caused her to look at her career in a new perspective. She told NPR: ”I’m a very hands-on mum, and that’s my reality. And he’ll last forever, whereas my career might not, so I think it’s important that I get my priorities right with that. ”[But] I remember doing the vocal [for ‘Remedy’] and just feeling really alive again, and fitting in my own shoes rather than my mummy shoes.

”My hours were a bit different then – I’d hang out all day with the baby, and then I’d go to the studio like once he went down – so it was like two in the morning when I was doing the vocals, but it was a great feeling. ”That’s how I know when I am willing to let a song be heard by people that I don’t know, when I am moved by it.”
