English pop singer and songwriter Adele whose soulful emotive voice and traditionally crafted songs made her one of the most broadly popular performers of her generation, reveals her interest in hiking as a secret to keeping fit.
Over the weekend, live on stage at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace she told the crowd: “Guess what I’ve started doing? I’ve started hiking. I really like it. I put my headphones on and get on with it.”
Last year, Adele revealed that she is addicted to exercise as she made history as the first celebrity to cover British and US Vogue. The singer states how she is obsessed with working out up to three times a day as she uses exercise to avoid anxiety disorder. Speaking about her incredible weight loss over a period of two years she said: ‘It was because of my anxiety. Working out, I would just feel better.
‘It was never about losing weight, it was always about becoming strong and giving myself as much time every day without my phone. I got quite addicted to it. I work out two or three times a day.’ Adele has been doing rigorous weight-lifting and circuit-training sessions every day – twice a day if her anxiety is running high – for three years and counting.
Meanwhile, the songstress – who has ten-year-old son Angelo from her previous marriage to Simon Konecki but is now in a relationship with sports agent Rich Paul – went on to tell the audience that friendships are “better” than any romantic partner before going on to lament that England are now out of the World Cup after being defeated by France.
She said : “I see so many groups of friends that come in here . . . loving an artist or a song. That’s how I became so close to some of my friends. “When relationships fall apart whether you’re married or not it’s really difficult and traumatic so keep your friends close to you because they’re better than any man, they’re better than any woman. Friends are for life. Thank you for the little whine. My son’s struggling to go to bed so it could be that, and England lost.”
