Much like the rest of the world, Adele cried when she heard "Hello" for the first time. But unlike our tears, Adele's have a greater purpose in life—they're part of the creative process.
"In order for me to feel confident with one of my songs it has to really move me," she told The New York Times. "That's how I know that I've written a good song for myself—it's when I start crying. It's when I just break out in tears in the vocal booth or in the studio, and I'll need a moment to myself."
Considering that every single one of Adele's songs is gut-wrenching, she presumably spends a lot of time crying. But, like, does she curl up into the fetal position and weep? Or publicly well-up on the subway while people scoot away from her? Only then will she truly be one of us.
