Adele has revealed that a career break could well be on the cards as she is ‘desperate’ to attend university.

Speaking to fans in Boston last week, the 28-year-old star confessed that while she doesn’t regret her decision to take a record deal over a college place, she is still hoping to further her studies.

According to The Sun, the Hello singer said:  “I’m desperate to go to university.  I know that sounds ridiculous but it’s one thing I really plan on doing.”

“I was about to start university in Liverpool in England and then I got offered a record deal, so I was like, ‘Ugh, what do I do?’”

“Obviously I took the record deal which I don’t regret at all.”

While Adele didn’t reveal what exactly she’s hoping to study, she did admit that she’d love to go to Harvard but claimed she doesn’t think she’d be smart enough to get in.

She said: “I want to go and do a tour of Harvard but I don’t want anyone thinking I’m smart enough to go to Harvard.”

“I’m going to buy a T-shirt so I can sleep in a Harvard T-shirt. I think I would pretend to wear glasses if I went to university,” she joked.

The news comes less than a week after a source told The Sun that the singer could be planning a ten year break from touring to focus on raising her son.

Singer Selena Gomez has announced that she will be taking time away from the spotlight to focus on her health.

The Good For You singer – who is currently travelling with her Revival World Tour – admitted that she has been suffering with depression and anxiety, two conditions which can be side effects of an autoimmune disease called Lupus which the star suffers from.

In a statement which was first published by PEOPLE, Selena said:  “As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways.”

“I've discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges.”

The 24-year-old explained that she now needs to be proactive when it comes to her health and thanked her fans – who are often called ‘Selenators’ – for their support.

She said: “I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off.”

“Thank you to all my fans for your support. You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best.”



My whole life. You matter most. Thank you for letting me do what I love every day.

The former Disney star finished by encouraging those suffering from similar issues to get help.

“I know I am not alone by sharing this, I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues.”

It is not yet known when exactly Selena’s career break will begin or whether it will interrupt the remainder of her tour.
