Adele has revealed her plans to take a break from music to study for an English degree after her Las Vegas residency.

The singer said, "'After Vegas I really want to get a degree in English Literature. If I hadn't made it in my singing, I think I would definitely be a teacher. I think I'd be an English Lit teacher."

She added that as a songwriter, she utilizes her passion for the English language to some extent, but wants to explore it further. "I definitely feel like I use my passion of English Lit in what I do," she explained. "But even though it's not like I'd go on to get a job from my degree, I wish I had gone to university, I wish I'd had that experience."

However, the Someone Like You hitmaker won't actually go to university, adding, "I won't go to a university, I'll do it online and with a tutor, but that's my plan for 2025. It's just to get the qualifications."

Adele's Las Vegas residency will begin in November after she previously canceled the shows at the last minute in January.

The 33-year-old explained at the time that Weekends with Adele, which was supposed to kick off in January at Caesers Palace's iconic Colosseum in Las Vegas, was postponed due to COVID-related delays. She said, "I'm so sorry, but my show ain't ready. We've tried absolutely everything that we can to put it together in time and for it to be good enough for you." 

Unfortunately, these efforts were simply not enough to safeguard the show from the impact of the pandemic. Adele confessed that the residency had been "absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and Covid," adding that, "half my crew, half my team are down with Covid." 

"It's been impossible to finish the show," she went on. "I can't give you what I have right now. I'm gutted. I'm sorry it's so last minute." 

The singer finally revealed the dates for her Las Vegas tour in July, saying, "Words can’t explain how ecstatic I am to finally be able to announce these rescheduled shows. I truly was heartbroken to have to cancel them."

The singer continued to apologize for the last-minute cancellation earlier in the year. "But after what feels like an eternity of figuring out logistics for the show that I really want to deliver, and knowing it can happen, I’m more excited than ever," she said.

"Now I know for some of you it was a horrible decision on my part, and I will always be sorry for that."

But it isn't just a degree that Adele has her sights set on for the future, as she recently admitted she wants marriage and children with her boyfriend, Rich Paul.

She gushed, "I've never been in love like this. I’m obsessed with him. I definitely want more kids." However, she denied rumors that she was engaged, "Well! Well. Well, I'm not married," she said, when asked why she was wearing a diamond ring recently. She later explained, "I just love high-end jewellery, boy!"

Adele, who was devasted about her divorce from Simon Konecki, hasn't spoken publicly about her new love, since her last marriage, but it's thought she was friends with Rich, an American sports agent before they got together.
