Adele wants to study for a degree in English literature after her residency in Vegas


Adele said she hopes to return to school and study English Literature once her residency in Las Vegas is over.

In November, the singer begins her delayed residency Weekends with Adele at Caesars Palace. His shows will run from November 18 to March 25.

On Tuesday, Adele took part in a Q&A with fans in Los Angeles titled Happy Hour with Adele to mark the release of the music video for his latest single, “I Drink Wine”.

There, the 34-year-old said she plans to take another break from music once her shows in Las Vegas are over and study online for a degree.

“After Vegas, I want to get a degree in English Literature,” she said. “If I hadn’t managed to sing, I think I would be an English teacher.

“I really think my passion for English is reflected in what I do. I would have liked to go to university and have this experience, but I will do it online with a tutor. This is my plan for 2025 , just to get the qualification.

Last year, Adele reunited with her high school English teacher as part of her An audience with Adele special on ITV.

The singer broke down in tears when she was surprised on stage at the London Palladium by Ms McDonald who taught her at Chestnut Grove School in Balham before moving to Brit School.

During the special, Emma Thompson asked Adele who inspired her in her life.

Naming Ms McDonald, Adele replied: ‘She left in eighth grade but she really got me into literature, I’ve always been obsessed with English and obviously now I write lyrics… She was so damn cool and so relatable and personable, that I really looked forward to my English lessons.

Thompson then surprised Adele by inviting Ms McDonald onto the stage and the pair embraced, prompting the singer to burst into tears.

Elsewhere in the Happy Hour with Adele event, the singer said she thought Taylor Swift was “one of the greatest songwriters of our generation”, adding that she loved it Folklore and Still, his last two albums.
