Adele has claimed that she would probably have become a teenage mother if she hadn't attended The Brit School.
The singer, who is currently number one on both sides of the Atlantic with her second album 21, admitted that she wouldn't be as ambitious if she had stayed at a regular secondary school.
She told the News of the World: "I hate to think where I'd have ended up if I hadn't gone to The Brit School. It's quite inspiring to be around 700 kids who want to be something - rather than 700 kids who just wanna get pregnant so they get their own flat.
"My first school was great but I'd have a kid by now if I hadn't left. And as much as I'd like to have a kid, I'm not ready for one now. I remember wanting to go to Sylvia Young Theatre School because Baby Spice went there but my mom couldn't afford it.
"I didn't have some rich daddy who built me a studio. But I loved The Brit School. It was a bit like Fame sometimes - you get people doing their ballet stretches and singers having sing-offs. I'd rather that than someone pulling out a knife!"
She added that fellow student Kate Nash was "always doing impressions" in class.
