Adele adopts boyfriend ban

The 23-year-old says they're too much of a distraction at this point in her career.

The chart-topper, who recently had to cancel the start of her UK tour due to illness, claims she has no time for love.

"I get distracted when I’ve got someone in my life, which I can’t afford to do right now, besides, no one treats me as well as I do, Adele told Vogue."

She added that  the prospect of having a famous boyfriend wouldn't be a good idea as she uses her life experiences for lyrical inspiration.

"If we broke up and I wrote a song, it’d be obvious who I was singing about."

The Someone Like You star went on to reveal that she wouldn't want the press to be a big part of her life and treasures her privacy.

"Look at Meryl Streep , the best actress in the world and nobody knows anything about her."

The singer's best-selling album 21 is in competition for this year's Mercury Music Prize, with the winner being announced on Tuesday night.
