“I am never writing a breakup record again, by the way. I’m done with being a bitter witch,” Adele said this week in an interview with Vogue.
She swept the Grammys and had her man at her side, Simon Konecki, a former financier and founder of Life Water, a British bottled water company. Or the bearded guy who has been the good man in the background while Adele won awards for heartbreak at the hands of her past boyfriend who had the gall to ask to get paid for his bad behavior.
“For about a week he was calling and was deadly serious about it,” Adele told the Sun last year. “Finally, I said, ‘Well, you made my life hell, so I lived it, and now I deserve it.’”
She also made clear that rumors her bearded man is still married are false, saying he has been divorced for 4 years.
By all accounts he’s a good guy and as Adele has skyrocketed in fame and fortune he’s been the rock behind the scenes providing loving support.
So let’s turn the sexist thought about behind every great man there is a great woman around and ask the question, what do you need to do to be the good man quietly supporting a great woman?
