Adele, who returned to music late last year for the first time since welcoming Angelo, admitted that motherhood has fundamentally changed her.

“My main thing is Mum, then it’s me, then it’s work,” she told Vogue.

“It makes me very proud of myself. When I became a parent, I felt like I was truly living. I had a purpose, where before I didn’t.”

Meanwhile, Adele too to the stage in Los Angeles last night to perform at a pre-Grammys party, her first gig in Hollywood for more than four years.

The Brit superstar announced the concert on Wednesday , and tickets were offered to people in the California area who were previously registered with her website.

The lucky fans were treated to an array of her old and new hits in the 16-song set at venue The Wiltern, with celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Tom Hanks, Emma Stone and rumoured new couple Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom also in the excited audience.

Introduced on stage by her friend and fellow Brit, The Late Late Show host James Corden, Adele opened with her recent worldwide smash hit Hello, her first single from the new album 25.

Adele chatted to the crowd in between songs including Set Fire to the Rain and Someone Like You, revealing that she'd been to Disneyland on Tuesday with Angelo, and then joked about the venue being far too hot. "I feel like my make-up's about to slide off me (sic) face!" she laughed, according to Billboard.com.

She then apologised for the $50 price of tickets, telling fans she wanted them to be much cheaper.

"Sorry if it was a pain in the a** getting the tickets. Did any of you pay more than $50 for any of these tickets?" she asked.

"They (the record company) were all saying, 'Oh let's do $150 a ticket, oh yeah! So-n-so said that…' I said $50.

"I would have (charged) less, but my record label is paying for this. As you can see by the set, we've run out of money," she joked.
