There’s something about Adele that is so raw and makes my eyes misty. She performed Someone Like You tonight at theVMAs. About the song and the relationship that her album 21 is about, she said:
“I was really emotionally drained from the way I was portraying him, because even though I’m very bitter and regret some parts of it, he’s still the most important person that’s ever been in my life, and Someone Like You, I had to write it to feel OK with myself and OK with the two years I spent with him. And when I did it, I felt so freed.”
I admire the way she can put her emotions into words and sing them with such strength and vulnerability. It’s good she can do that and speak for so many girls that can’t.
