Adele has revealed that getting drunk helps her get in touch with her feelings and write her heart-breaking songs.

In a recent interview withe 23-year-old singer said: "I used to have to lock myself away in my house, get pretty drunk and write a drunk diary - and that was the first time I could admit things to myself, she told The Sun.

The singer claimed she used booze to help her write songs when she was younger as she thought it would make her more 'honest'.

"A drunk tongue is an honest one in my opinion and the next morning I would read it through with an awful hangover and, in the cold light of day, had to absorb my feelings about myself. I was a bit scared that I wouldn't be articulate enough."

Adele became a global star with her second album "21", which spent over 17 weeks in the album charts and was number one three times.

Naturally such tremendous success led many to wonder where the Brit singer got her song-writing inspiration from, which evidently seems to from alcohol.

Adele added: 'When I was 18 or 19 I didn't regret anything, I was very much a teenager and thought I knew it all and that there was nothing else I could learn.

[Later]"I started realising my own flaws and my disappointments and I started regretting a lot of stuff. It was quite an awakening."
