Adele‘s always had the music bug!

In this photo, taken when she was four years old at her now-estranged father’s home in South Wales, shows the tot strumming a Fisher Price guitar and sitting on an amp!

Today, though, the 23-year-old isn’t speaking to her dad, after he spoke to the tabloids about her. She told Vogue, “If I ever see him, I will spit in his faceā€¦He will never hear from me again..It makes me angry! To come back after 10 years and be like, ‘Maybe her problem with men comes down to me.’ It’s like, ‘F–k off! How dare you comment on my life?’ It makes my blood boil.”

Adele Backtracks: I’m Not Going On A Five-Year Hiatus!

Fear not, fans: Adele is not going on a five-year hiatus.

She’s taken to her Web site to downplay comments she made to the March issue of Vogue, about taking a hiatus from music. “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,” she wrote on her Web site. “BOYYAHH! 5 years? More like 5 days!”

She told Vogue, meanwhile, “I’m f—ing off for four or five years. If I am constantly working, my relationships fail. So at least now I can have enough time to write a happy record. And be in love and be happy. And then I don’t know what I’ll do. Get married. Have some kids. Plant a nice vegetable patch.”

Fueled by outrage from fans, her rep said it was “just an offhand comment.”
