Adele reveals reasons for not wanting her son to be photographed

The chart-topping singer has sued photographers who've taken her son Angelo's photo in the past

Adele has revealed her reasons for not wanting photographers to take pictures of her son, Angelo.

The award-winning singer previously won a five-figure sum in a settlement from a British photo agency who took photos of a then one-year-old Angelo in the playground.

According to Vulture, Adele’s next Vogue cover feature sees her discussing motherhood and protecting Angelo from the spotlight.


“I think it’s really hard being a famous person’s child. What if he wants to smoke weed or drink underage, or what if he’s gay and doesn’t want to tell me, and then he’s photographed and that’s how I find out?” she is reported to say.


Adele also says she wants Carol director Todd Haynes to work on the music video for her next single ‘When We Were Young’. “I loved Carol,” she said. “I loved the way it looked, and I loved the awkward silence in it — I’d like to have some awkward silence in the music video.”

Last year, Adele told BBC Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw that she wrote “an album about being a mum but that’s pretty boring. I scrapped that.”

She has also said that her new lifestyle made it difficult to start work on her album: “Getting into the headspace was really difficult – obviously now I’m a parent, and having such a break off, I kind of fell out of the habit of writing songs.”
