Adele has played down her remarks in the latest issue of Vogue about planning a five-year hiatus in a blog post on her official site. "I've a few days off now, and then it’s the Brit Awards here at home and then I’m straight into the studio. BOYYAHH! 5 years? More like 5 days!," she wrote. The singer's U.K. spokesperson also shot down the Vogue soundbite, telling the BBC that it was "just an offhand comment."

Aside from addressing her fans on her blog, Adele has avoided speaking to the press in the wake of her sweep at the Grammys over the weekend. Her manager, Jonathan Dickens, spoke on her behalf to Billboard yesterday, saying they will need to "ease her back" into performing live. "While she's fully recovered, like any injury you need to build your strength back up," Dickens said. "I'm gonna let her enjoy this moment and not drive her mad. We'll sit down and work out what we're doing going forward. It's a long-term thing."

“I Was Made to Love Her”

Stevie Wonder | 1967

Stevie Wonder discovered true love while still a teenager, writing this ode to young love when he was only 17. The song, Wonder explained, "kind of speaks of my first love, to a girl named Angie, who was a very beautiful woman. She's married now. Actually, she was my third girlfriend but my first love. I used to call Angie up and we would talk and say, 'I love you, I love you,' and we'd talk and we'd both go to sleep on the phone.” The Beach Boys, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston and Boyz II Men have all recorded versions of "I Was Made to Love Her."
