As Adele launched her new album 30, which sounded to global applause – in the UK alone, it is outpacing the rest of the top 40 combined – how disappointingly her success can be estimated. There has been a small chorus of rejecting men looking to pierce.

The target of her anger is the fact that the British star has dared to use her relationship with ex-husband Simon Konecki as material.

Writing about her devastating split from the father of her son Angelo two years ago, she shared her heart with songs like Easy on Me (“I Changed I Wanted to Put You Both First”) and Hold On (“Sometimes”). put in new songs. Loneliness is the only comfort we get’).

But she has been targeted by critics while sharing that vulnerability. One Twitter user said, ‘Adele bothered me so much! Not above exploiting your “heartbreaking divorce” for record sales, right?’

Hearing this, I couldn’t stop thinking about all the male actors who are mining their love lives forever. The only difference is that men call their subjects ‘Moose’ and it means to praise.

Many of the songs that made Mick Jagger millions were inspired by the melodious, vulnerable Marianne Faithful. She has since spoken out about her unease about being in the spotlight: ‘To be with a great artist like Mick Jagger is a very devastating role for a woman trying to be herself.’ She struggled with heroin addiction after being homeless for two years.

Another pop star, Taylor Swift, has been lambasted by critics for daring to use her bad romance as inspiration – such as Dear John (allegedly by guitarist John Mayer, who that they dated in 2009) and We’re Never Ever Getting Back Together (written in 2013 after splitting from One Direction singer Harry Styles).

But I never remember anyone criticizing Bob Dylan for doing so. His relationship with Suz Rotolo in the early 1960s inspired songs including Boots of Spanish Leather and Tomorrow Is a Long Time. But after a bitter feud with her and her sister, Dylan’s 1964 ballad in Plain D featured the song ‘For her parasitic sister, I had no respect’. No one had a pop on it.

Similarly, when Justin Timberlake was featured chasing a woman who looked like his former Britney Spears in the 2002 video for Cry Me a River, he was rewarded with sympathy for her alleged cheating and a global hit. had gone.

Swift herself has invoked this inequality. In 2014, she said: ‘You’ll have people who are going to say, “She just writes songs about her ex-boyfriend.” And I clearly think that’s a very sexist angle.

‘No one says that about Ed Sheeran. Or Bruno Mars. They are all writing songs about him. , , Love life, and there’s no one to fly a red flag.’

Swift is right. Why shouldn’t our modern female stars show their soul mate the same way? After all, when you get right down to it, they’re going to be entertainers. If Adele sang and sang about feeding a cat or getting a pedicure, it would be boring. So naturally the ups and downs of her life are highlighted in her new songs.

And so was the 2011 album, which made her a household name at 21.

Heartbroken after a painful split on tracks like ‘Someone Like You’ and ‘Rolling in the Deep’ (“You had my heart in your hands, you wish you never met me”), he struck a chord with his audience. Connected to the personal and dynamic level.

Oh the irony is that this ex-boyfriend—who Adele declined to be named—broken her heart and was later approached to demand a share of the royalties for motivating her.

Beyonce is another female superstar who isn’t afraid to open up about her love life in her work, brilliantly turning personal pain into art. When rumors surfaced that husband Jay-Z might be cheating on her, she immediately sang about another woman – “Becky with the Good Hair” on her 2016 album Lemonade. The spice of the scandal certainly didn’t hurt its sales, and it was named album of the decade by the Associated Press.

The truth is that all artists lay down their lives for inspiration.

The fact that female stars are finally winning the same kind of praise as men please every woman for their intimate revelations.

An artist’s experience is their bail, and if you can’t handle it, go to the doctor and date. (They vow not to do you any harm, we are the opposite.) Not without reason F Scott Fitzgerald said during his nervous breakdown: ‘I avoided writers very carefully because they can perpetuate trouble. Like no one else can do.

Me, that’s why I love all kinds of writers and artists. We never stop plotting. We never forgive and forget. We may appear, but we are recording a crime against us, real or imaginary, for use at a later date.

They say that no man is a hero to his servant – how true that no one is a hero to his spouse. And if that spouse is a creative artist, you have to expect them to dissect you after the divorce. When I left my first husband, novelist Tony Parsons, in 1984, I heard a rumor—I don’t know if it was true—that he had written a novel based on me called Ambition.

It didn’t get published, but, cheekily, I took the title of my own No. 1 bestseller.
