It would be masturbatory on anyone else, but *nobody* would fault Adele for listening to Adele to get over some heartbreak. Nobody.

Sharing her noticeably devoid-of-"Send My Love (to Your New Lover)" breakup playlist with People—which includes the likes of Etta James, Mumford & Sons, and Florence + The Machine—the happily coupled-up Beyoncé worshipper said she won't be needing her own discography anytime soon.

"I mope around for a little while," Adele said of her post-relationship-end procedure. "I do embrace the fact that I'm heartbroken. I don't move on quickly. I don't know if that's because it seems that I'm only really creative when I'm a bit momentarily depressed."

"Same," Gwen Stefani said (imaginarily). "But I listen to 'I Used to Love You.'"
