Adele: 'not very Academic'

Adele has admitted that she's 'not very Academic'.

Speaking to STV she said: 'I had to bear the brunt of negative attitudes from authority figures, such as teachers, who led me to believe that success was unrealistic.

'So I chose to survive rather than live in a fantasy world. I'm not, and never have been, very academic- it was always music for me.'

She added: 'I remember when I was 10, I nicked my mum's Lauryn Hill album and listened to it every day after school in my bedroom, sitting in my little sofa bed and hoping to God that one day I'd be a singer.'
