Just when we showed her how much we love her, how much we care for her, how much we need her – and in the most Grammy-rific way possible – Adele decides to abandon us all to our note-less, a-rhythmic loneliness, our dark night of the soul, our misery ...

AOL.com's Music news blog Spinner.com says, with a touch of hysterics, that Adele plans to take the next four or five years off from music!

That she wants to leave you, me and the muses so she can concentrate on her relationship with her new boyfriend, “get married. Have some kids. Plant a nice vegetable patch.”

Horrors.

Could this really be true?

Probably not. Spinner’s report is written off an interview conducted with Adele by Jonathan Van Meter  in British Vogue’s daily online edition.

Here is the full quote. It opens with Van Meter opining about Adele’s state of mind.

For someone so young, Adele seems to have a powerful urge to settle down and start a family of her own.

Indeed, in three interviews, it is the topic that comes up the most.

One day, I ask about her future.

“I am [bleeping] off for four or five years,” she says.

“If I am constantly working, my relationships fail. So at least now I can have enough time to write a happy record. And be in love and be happy. And then I don’t know what I’ll do. Get married. Have some kids. Plant a nice vegetable patch.”

Adele does speak to Vogue about her new beau, Simon Konecki –, described by Van Meter as “a big bear of a guy with a husky voice and a hipster vibe—he has the telltale full beard and a slouchy, gentle aspect. He hangs around, chatting up Rose and attending to his new girl when she gets a break from shooting.”

Konecki sounds like a good guy with a global consciousness:

“A 37-year-old former investment banker, [he] is the CEO of Drop4Drop,” writes Van Meter, “a charity based in the seaside town of Brighton, about an hour outside London, whose mission is to alleviate the global water crisis.”

Adele says she adores him.

“He’s wonderful,” she tells the Vogue writer, “and he’s proud of me, but he don’t care about what I do or what other people think. He looks after me. I don’t think I would have gotten through the recovery for my surgery if it hadn’t been for him.”

Will Adele leave the world – where her album, 21, has outsold nearly every other scrap of recorded music since the gramophone was invented – to raise rabbits with Konecki?

Who knows. We can’t see into Adele’s heart.

For now, as Rolling Stone reports, Adele plans to release “Rumour Has It” as her fourth single off 21 in March.
