In September, Damon Albarn revealed that he worked with Adele on her new album, 25, but called her “very insecure” and predicted that his contributions would not make it to the final cut. Adele later responded, saying: “It was sad, and I regret hanging out with him.” Time Out London recently invited the Gorillaz/Blur frontman for an interview, and he reveals that the entire story has been blown out of proportion. When it comes to having beef with Adele, Albarn claims that “it’s not even true.” He shares: “It’s amazing how people will run with stuff that has no credence whatsoever and turn it into something and then watch the reaction.” He then tells Time Out that he is not very web-savvy that when he read an interview with himself on The Guardian, he mistook the article’s comments as part of the story text, saying: “People were not kind; it was…enlightening.” Read the full interview here.
