Adele has denied that she is planning to take a five-year break from music.

The '21' singer was quoted yesterday (February 14) as saying she wanted to "fuck off for four or five years" to focus on her relationship with new boyfriend Simon Konecki, and would only return when she can write a "happy record", but she has now backtracked on those comments.

Writing on her blog,, the singer wrote:
I've a few days off now, and then it's the Brit Awards here at home and then I'm straight into the studio. 5 years? More like 5 days!

The comments came from an interview with the US edition of Vogue, which quoted the '21' star as saying: "I am fucking off for four or five years. If I am constantly working, my relationships fail. So at least now I can have enough time to write a happy record. And be in love and be happy. And then I don't know what I'll do. Get married. Have some kids. Plant a nice vegetable patch."

She had stated in the same interview that she was sick of being a "bitter witch" and will never write another album about a break-up.

Adele picked up six awards at Sunday night's Grammys, with '21' producer Paul Epworth was also named Producer Of The Year.
