Mom’s Drunk Presents: Thoughts on Love, Lust, & Relationships
Happy Valentine’s Day from Tumblr! Don’t mind the awkward guy in the cardigan.
I like to try and distance myself from my songs, and I’m finding it quite impossible to do with this record and I’m not sure if it’s because the record is a lot more successful than our relationship was. I’m a bit bitter about that in a way, but in a really profound way because it’s really amazing. Every time I sing the song, something else comes out, a little bit more of me hates myself or a little bit more of me is devastated.
Adele says during the taping of the “Live from the Artists Den” premiering on Feb. 3rd on PBS.
(Here’s to hoping the next album is about her bitter relationship with the last album which was about a bitter relationship. It’ll be more meta than Taylor Swift.)
There may be tears around the dinner table tomorrow; as any campus psychologist can tell you, Thanksgiving is “turkey drop” time. The term famously refers to the holiday break-up, when college students who’ve been in long-distance relationships return home and end things with their sweethearts. The stereotypical “turkey dropper” is a college freshman whose boyfriend or girlfriend is still in high school, attending another college, or not in school at all. Come late November, he or she has spent two or three months marinating in a new environment, has met new people, perhaps had a hook-up (or fallen for someone new). Summer’s starry-eyed promise to “make it work, no matter what” has become late autumn’s “I think it’s time we took a break.”
Look, all that matters in a relationship is that you like the same pizza toppings.
