Superstar singer Adele is notorious for pouring her personal life into her albums — her albums 19 and 21 are both inspired by breakups, and she has described her latest album, 25, as a "make-up" album.
So who, exactly, are the real-life inspirations behind Adele's music?
Her debut album, 19, was released in 2008 to commercial and critical success.
In the US, it has held the top position longer than any album since 1985, and is certified diamond.
After graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year.
In 2007, she received the Brit Awards "Critics' Choice" award and won the BBC Sound of 2008 poll.
Adele went on her first UK headlining tour in October 2007.
During her teenage years she recorded demo's and gave it to her friend Lyndon.
