Adele may be getting unprecedented acclaim for her new record, 25 (and breaking records at every turn), but the singer still has her priorities straight. The London-born songstress stopped by Today this morning, where she sat down with anchor Matt Lauer to talk about the success of her new album as well as the number one person in her life, her son.
"It's pretty overwhelming, but it's incredible," Adele told Lauer, adding that the reaction she received from fans at Rockefeller Center this morning is "so beautiful, it's so nice." And although she hadn't expected this kind of response to her new single "Hello," or to her album, Adele admits that she was a bit more prepared than she was with her second album, 21. "When it happened on 21, I was clueless. It had never happened to me before. So I felt well prepared for it this time, yea."
But there's one thing that has managed to keep the singer grounded, and that's her 3-year-old son, Angelo. "I've got a kid which is the most grounding thing as I'm sure any parent will know," she said. And it seems that the two have a pretty close bond: "My son comes everywhere with me. We're all good. He's the first person I see in the morning and the last person I see at night, and vice versa, so we're all good. And I make time for him, like I always have, that's one of the main reasons I've been away for so long is because I was like no, my kid is more important, and my kid comes first and my music comes second. And I come second." Talk about a devoted mother. Watch her full interview below.
