Adele closed out the North American leg of her world tour on a personal note.
The 28-year-old singer -- who still has a few more tour dates in New Zealand and Australia next year -- performed in Phoenix, Arizona, on Monday night, and upon finishing her performance, announced that she would be taking a long break from music. "Give it up for me, I did it!" she declared during her sold-out show. "I’ll see you on the other side. In a couple of years I'll be back. You won’t be able to get rid of me."
"I just finished my 107 shows in 10 months. 100 percent live every night. I bloody smashed it, even if I do say so myself,” she captioned the pic of her son's sign. "You lot have been incredible, every night you’ve been so beautiful, loving and engaged."
"My knowledge of postpartum -- or post-natal, as we call it in England -- is that you don’t want to be with your child; you’re worried you might hurt your child; you’re worried you weren’t doing a good job," she explained. "But I was obsessed with my child. I felt very inadequate; I felt like I’d made the worst decision of my life. It can come in many different forms. Eventually I just said, I’m going to give myself an afternoon a week, just to do whatever the f**k I want without my baby. A friend of mine said, ‘Really? Don’t you feel bad?’ I said, I do, but not as bad as I’d feel if I didn’t do it."
