“I don’t know if I really have anything to say.” That problem has rarely stopped wanna-be book writers before. But the singer Adele, in a remarkable display of her own maturity and self-awareness, has reportedly turned down a seven-figure deal for her autobiography for precisely that reason.
According to the Daily Mirror, Harper Collins met with the superstar singer’s managers and made the million-plus offer. She said no, thank you. According to that British tabloid, she feels she's simply too young to write a memoir. She hasn’t lived enough yet.
“Adele’s never been a really showy person,” a source tells the Daily Mirror. “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,” the source continued. “She feels she’d rather wait until she has more life experience to write about.”
