Adele Is Apparently OK With Her Ex Now

Let’s pause for a minute to savor the unintentional humor of the first sentence of this Adele article in The Independent:
Adele has forgiven her ex-boyfriend for breaking her heart, after selling millions of copies of the album based on their relationship.
Ah, nothing fills fissures in the heart like the royalties from selling millions of copies. To recap, this is presumably the same still-anonymous ex who wanted some of those royalties, but what’s a little ownership dispute compared to celebrity-fueled reconciliation? (Adele would say recording the album helped her heal, and you might say time helped as well, but leave us our joke.) One could even say they’ve and we’ve moved into the “Someone Like You” stage of the relationship from the roarier “Rolling in the Deep.” Take it from her:
“We’re becoming friends again. It’s alright, I know what I’m doing. Enough time has gone by. Now with what’s going on with the album around the world it’s important to be able to share it with him because it’s marvellous what has happened.
Well said. We’d speculate on what this might mean for the inevitable 23 and what we imagine might be its collection of floaty, resolved songs, but songwriters–artists in any medium, that is–revisit their past feelings all the time for their work. And we can never fault people for resolving their grudges.
