The British singer isn’t ready to detail her life experiences in a book yet as she’s still got so much more life to live.

Adele needs to live a little more before penning her first memoir. The 24-year-old singer reportedly turned down a seven-figure book deal with publishers Harper Collins because she’s too young.
“Even though she received a lucrative offer, her primary concern was that she doesn’t want to write a book about just 24 years,” a source told the Daily Mirror. “She feels she’d rather wait until she has more life experience to write about.” In just two-and-a-half decades the “Rolling in the Deep” singer has had quite a life. She’s won nine Grammys, 12 Billboard Music Awards, four American Music Awards and a Best Original Song Oscar for “Skyfall,” just to name a few highpoints.
Adele, 24, is going to wait a bit before writing the story of her life.
In addition to her accolades, her sophomore album “21” topped the charts in more than 30 countries and appeared in the Guinness World Records 2012 addition (she was the first female to have two singles and two albums in the U.K. Top 5 simultaneously and her album was the first in the U.K. to reach sales of three million in a calendar year).
But despite being a worldwide musical phenomenon, Adele is reportedly an extremely private person who suffers from severe stage fright, which could be another reason for her decision to postpone writing her life’s story.
“Adele’s never been a really showy person,” the source continued. “So it was always going to take a lot to get her to write her life story anyway.” But her refusal to publish a book at 24 does not mean the British singer won’t agree to do it in the future.
“She’d never say never,” the insider added, “but she did say, ‘Not now.’”
I always forget she is only 24, good god.
