Adele Speaks About Her Reaction If Her Son Is Gay

Adele Speaks About Her Reaction If Her Son Is Gay

‘He makes me so proud of myself, and he makes me like myself so much. And I’ve always liked myself. I’ve never not liked myself. I don’t have hang-ups like that.

‘But I’m so proud of myself that I made him in my belly. Cooked him in my belly and then he came out of me! This human who’s suddenly walking around and doing his own thing.

‘I can’t wait to know who his best friends are going to be, who his girlfriend or his boyfriend is going to be or what movies he likes.

‘Whatever my kid wants to do or be I will always support him no matter what.’

    The truth is most mothers are like this. Forget all the “I hate gays talk”. Let police or anybody come and make trouble say her pikin is “a gay” and see your mum in action! Lol

    Please, can we give a hand to Adele’s group of make up artists since ’25’ came out? She has never looked better.

    As for all mothers being this way, I doubt it. You guys obviously haven’t seen the ‘You laid your bed’ kind of mothers.

      You dey mind them? It’s not long ago I sat through this heart-wrenching story where the mother discovered the boy’s sexuality and sent him out of the house. Just like that. And spread word to relatives that she had disowned him because he is a homo. Of course, relatives shut their doors in the guy’s face as a result. This guy lived rough for nearly two weeks as a result, before a distant aunt took him in. And now, under her care, he’s trying to reorganize his life.
      The mother is still stonily unresponsive to entreaties made by the aunt to take him back. And he’s the only son.
      His story just broke my heart. Dude is trying to put the story together for KD. As he is now, he’s gradually getting to the point of no return, where all affection held for the mother is completely extinguished.
      Not all mothers are compassionate women with tons of hidden or open love for their children o.

          She might come around.

          Considering the environment our parents grew up In I won’t be surprised if my mum acted that way.

          Everyone needs time to get used to the idea of their son loving another guy. It’s not as easy for some mum as it is for some.

    I’m not surprised at Adele’s point of view. Someone who can create such wonderful music must definitely have a beautiful soul ?

    Yay! Finally, the Bey clan decides to take a hike. This is the kind of person (that’d sing reasonably and speak reasonably) we should be discussing.
    Isn’t she just great? Everything about her is so angelic, her music, voice, WISDOM (unlike someone I know *unlooks immediately*). More Adele!

    Flawless Beauty Adele..
    All mothers are like this really.. Infact most of them are aware of their kids sexuality even before you tell them. Some might be waiting for you to say it before they let you know they are aware while some will be living in denial due to different reasons. at the end all mothers still love their kids regardless of sexuality except ofcourse she is a witch.
    You were formed in them and there is a part of them in you and vice versa. So they know.
    So if you are here and you haven’t come out to your mum yet. Be rest assured she already knows.
    There was this Khloe Kardashian radio show, where a guy was to call his mother on the show and come out to her and when he called and told her he was gay. The mum said she already knew along time ago. They asked how she knew and she simply said. “I am you mother”
