Sia Once Called Adele a Lazy Songwriter

Adele Addresses Rich Paul Rumors, Reportedly Ends Residency For Good

Chattanooga, Tennessee—

Adele discussed lyrics to her various songs in an interview with “Elle” magazine.

When the song “Chasing Pavements” came up, from Adele’s “19” album, she said, quote, “I do remember on ’19’, I always used the word ‘cuz.’  It’s so lazy.

“One time, I was in the studio with Sia, and I kept being, like, ‘cuz’ or ‘but’ and ‘and.’   She was like, ‘We don’t do those words.  We don’t do those words.  We don’t use words like that.  It’s just lazy.'”

“But clearly, I’m lazy.”
