Why Is Adele’s ‘Set Fire to the Rain’ a Gay Anthem? Did the Singer Come Out?
For many years it’s been known that Adele is a gay icon. But did she finally come out of the closet? Why is her ‘Set Fire to the Rain’ reinterpreted as a gay anthem? There are many confusions; however, it’s easy to understand that Adele’s sexuality is straight.
Let’s first check a few lines of the lyrics of this particular song.
“I let it fall, my heart
And as it fell, you rose to claim it
It was dark, and I was over
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me
My hands, they were strong
But my knees were far too weak
To stand in your arms
Without falling to your feet
But there’s a side to you
That I never knew, never knew
All the things you’d say
They were never true, never true
And the games you’d play
You would always win, always win
But I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Well, it burned while I cried
‘Cause I heard it screaming out your name
As you can see, nothing in the lyrics hints at the singer coming out as gay. It’s a relationship-related song that any sexual person can relate to.
Gay people have chosen this track as one of their anthems, and that’s how the confusion began. The truth is singer Adele isn’t gay.
We’ve Always Seen Adele Dating Her Opposite Sex
The ‘Easy on Me’ singer is definitely into men. We’ve always seen her romantically engaged with men; for a long time, Adele was in a relationship with her ex-husband Simon Konecki. The pair reportedly began the relationship in 2011.
The duo quickly became parents of a son named Angelo Adkins. They welcomed the baby on 19th October 2012.
She felt great becoming a parent and shared her feelings and experience with the media. The duo got married in 2018 and split after a few months.
But Adele legally got divorced from Simon in 2021. Guess what happened, then? She immediately started another affair with her current boyfriend, Rich Paul.
He is a sports agent. Since she has always picked guys as his partners, you should no longer remain confused about her sexual label.
Singer Adele calls herself a feminist. She believes in the same rights for everyone regardless of gender, sexuality, and race. Hence she supports LGBTQ.
Adele is considered a gay icon by the LGBT group and picked her ‘Set Fire to the Rain’ as their anthem.
But it never proves Adele to be someone opposite of straight. She is heterosexual, has a child, and is happily dating a man.
