Superstar Adele has admitted the “brutal” backlash she received over the cancellation of her Las Vegas shows had a negative impact on her.

The Hello hitmaker said she was afraid to stop the shows this year after trying for so long to make them perfect. She said she was “a shell of a person” for months after they were called away.

Adele had canceled her Las Vegas shows in January, the day before the event. Some British fans were on planes flying to the US to see the performances. They didn’t find out until they landed.

The star said at the time that she had to cancel the concerts because Covid had caused major setbacks. The 34-year-old broke down in tears on social media and said in a clip that “half her crew” had Covid and the shows weren’t done yet.

Adele said: “I definitely felt everyone’s disappointment and was devastated. I was afraid of letting her down.”

But she then admitted that she “didn’t think any other artist would have done it.”

She went on to say that she can’t be “bought for free” and that she wouldn’t do a show just because she has to if it’s not right.

Adele told Desert Island Discs the show wasn’t “good enough”.

She added: “But it was horrible and the reaction was brutal, brutal and I was a shell of a person for a couple of months.

“I just had to wait and grieve, grieve the shows and get over the guilt. But it was brutal.”

She has since split from ex Simon and settled in LA with boyfriend Rich Paul. Adele has also undergone a tremendous weight loss transformation.

That Singer explained that the workout gave her “focus,” used up “energy,” and made her feel “stronger” physically and mentally.

But she understood how some fans were negatively impacted by her seven stone weight loss. Some said she felt “pressured” to lose the weight.

Adele told Radio 4’s Lauren: “For some people it was (taken negatively) and I felt awful – some of the ones I saw were young. like 15

“There were some other people who felt very betrayed and said, ‘Oh, she gave in to the pressure,’ which didn’t really bother me because you don’t hold my hand at 4 a.m. when I’m scared with all my heart crying and need a distraction.
