Adele: 'I think I will die young from stress'

Adele has revealed that she believes she will die young because she spends so much time getting stressed.

The 'Someone Like You' singer explained that she suffers from anxiety whenever she is due to perform.

She told OK: "Oh my God, I'm crippled by fear. I have awful stage fright. I don't know what possesses me to do it. I think I'm going to die young from having so much stress all the time."

Adele also admitted that she has moved back in with her mum after a failed attempt at living on her own in the Notting Hill area of London.

She added: "After my first record I moved out of my mum's and moved to Notting Hill on my own. My life fell apart. My phone got cut off, my credit card got cut off, the house was a mess. It was awful. I couldn't function without my mum so I moved back in with her."

"I'd rather be defeated than one day come in and the rats would be eating me. My mum and I don't live in a tiny place. It's a big apartment, she can be at one end and me at the other."

It was revealed today that Adele has been nominated for both the Barclaycard Mercury Prize and the 2011 Popjustice Twenty Quid Music Prize.
