Katy Perry?! Adele’s break-up songs are NOT exactly what we expected

For most of us, break-ups and Adele albums go hand-in-hand, but what does the queen of splitsville soundtracks listen to when she herself is going through a break-up?

While we'd like to imagine her tearfully wailing Someone Like You while trawling through his Facebook page, the singer (obvs) steers clear of her own back catalogue.

Speaking to People magazine about her own personal process, the 28-year-old Londoner – who is currently in a happy relationship with the father of her child – said: "I mope around for a little while. I do embrace the fact that I'm heartbroken. I don't move quickly,"

Adele explained that she relies on Bonnie Raitt's Can't Make You Love Me, Mumford and Sons' After the Storm, David Gray's This Year's Love and Katy Perry's Not Like The Movies to navigate those tricky weeks and months post-break up.

And while the rest of us make bad decisions regarding alcohol, ice cream and other men in the aftermath, Adele can generally make a positive from a negative during this time. (Hello, multiple Grammy awards)

Commenting on this talent, the When We Were Young singer simply said: "I don't know if that's because it seems that I'm only really creative when I'm a bit momentarily depressed."

All we get out of a break-up is a hatred for certain restaurants and an attachment to a football team we thought we despised.
