"I am f---ing off for four or five years," Adele told the magazine. "If I am constantly working, my relationships fail. So at least now I can have enough time to write a happy record. And be in love and be happy."
"And then I don't know what I'll do," she added. "Get married. Have some kids. Plant a nice vegetable patch."
The "happy record" would certainly be a change of pace, as the singer's mega-selling '21' was inspired by a devastating breakup. Speaking with Vogue about what type of girlfriend she is, Adele said she's a good one, since she likes to laugh, cook and have sex -- though not at the same time, one presumes. She also admitted that she's prone to drama.
"I am not bipolar, but I go from, 'Oh, my God, I love you' to, 'Get the f--- out of my house!' really quickly," she said. "And I never sit there and talk about it. I give them the silent treatment."
Sadly, it seems that same treatment is going to extend to the rest of us.
UPDATE: Adele has since dismissed the quote as an offhand comment. "I've a few days off now, and then it's the Brit Awards here at home and then I'm straight into the studio. BOYYAHH! 5 years? More like 5 days," she wrote on her blog.
