Adele turns 34: “What a difference a year makes!”
Adele says she has “never been happier” as she thanked fans for wishing her 34th birthday.
The Easy On Me singer said she has “so many blessings to be grateful for” as she reflects on the past year.
The past 12 months have seen many twists and turns for the Brit Award winner, who released her highly anticipated fourth studio album, 30, before having to cancel her Las Vegas residency.
“What a difference a year makes!” Adele wrote on Instagram, sharing two candid photos of herself.
“If time continues to heal and smooth out all the wrinkles in my life, as it has over the years, then I can’t wait to be 60!
“I’ve never been happier! So many lessons, so many blessings to be grateful for.
“This is 34 and I love it here! Thanks for the birthday love as always x”
Released in November last year, 30 marks Adele’s return to music after a six-year hiatus.
The album reached number one in more than 20 countries, including the UK, where it topped the official albums chart for five weeks.

In the week following the album’s release, Adele achieved a chart double on the Official Singles Chart with two songs from the album – Easy On Me at number one and Oh My God at number two.
Upon its release, 30 surpassed five million physical album equivalent units in less than two months.
Alongside the release, Adele took part in an extensive interview with US talk show host Oprah Winfrey, in which she discussed the album’s themes of divorce, motherhood and heartache.
She also announced a residency at Caesar’s Palace to run from January to April 2022, but had to cancel it at short notice, citing delivery delays and the impact of the coronavirus.
She recently revealed on The Graham Norton Show that the shows would definitely take place in 2022 and hinted at pregnancy plans for next year.
The singer is currently dating American sports agent Rich Paul and has a nine-year-old son, Angelo.
