Adele says she doesn't feel "the need" to get married


ADELE doesn't feel the "need" to get married.

The 27-year-old star has been with her boyfriend Simon Konecki for over three years but insists they have not secretly tied the knot despite press speculation and sees no reason why they should.

She explained: "I have said a million times I'm not married and everyone still says we are.

"But, yeah, we're still together. We haven't broken up. We've never broken up. We've been together. We just haven't felt the need to get married. We've got a kid together. I feel like that's a big enough commitment."

The 'Someone Like You' singer has nothing but praise for her 41-year-old beau - with whom she has three-year-old son Angelo - because he is so comfortable with her success.

She said: "He's so supportive. And that takes a very big man, because I'm very successful at what I do. My last boyfriend was uncomfortable with how successful I was, and the fact that he had to share me with lots of people."

Her previous boyfriend caused the heartbreak that inspired her second studio album '21' which has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide and made her a global icon, but she is completely over him now and has laughed off speculation her new single 'Hello' was written about the same guy.

She explained: "If I were still writing about him, that'd be terrible. 'Hello' is as much about regrouping with myself, reconnecting with myself."

And although she's very happy with her family, she confessed she has a "lot of regrets".

She told Rolling Stone magazine: "I've had a lot of regrets since I turned 25. And sadness hits me in different ways than it used to.

"Not because I'm famous, but just because I just don't think I'll ever have the time. Like being a journalist, or like being a teacher. And I'm never going to be on my own again.

"I'm a mom and I'm in a very serious relationship, so it's never going to be just me again. I don't regret any of it. Like, those aren't the things that I regret. But I feel like I didn't have very long to myself. I was my mom's kid, and now I'm a mom. I had, like, a five-year window of just being me."
