Adele ‘far too young’ to write memoir

Adele

Adele has reportedly rejected a seven-figure offer to write her autobiography because she believes she's too young to tell her life story at the age of 24.

The 24-year-old singer has an Oscar, nine Grammys and four Brit Awards under her belt.

But even with the accolades and a reported $46 million fortune she believes it’s far too early to pen her own life story.

According to UK newspaper The Mirror, the singer has been approached by a handful of publishing houses interested in selling her autobiography.

HarperCollins Publishers have reportedly presented a generous offer to her management team.

A source told the news outlet Adele has passed on the opportunity and believes she is “far too young” to commit to such a project.

“Adele’s never been a really showy person,” a source said. “So it was always going to take a lot to get her to write her life story anyway.

“But even though she received a lucrative offer, her primary concern was that she doesn’t want to write a book about just 24 years. She feels she’d rather wait until she has more life experience to write about.”

A memoir isn’t out of the question entirely. Adele is reportedly interested in the project but wants to focus on building her future rather than writing about her past.

“She’d never say never, but she did say ‘not now,’” the insider claimed.

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
