The star explained that Angelo had previously attended rehearsals with her when the arena was empty, and compared them to a packed show when they had been to see Taylor Swift together.
She told: ‘He’s like, ‘So many people come to her shows,’ ‘ she recalled with a laugh. ‘But I make him leave before they all arrive. It was so cute and so funny.’
The Rolling in the Deep singer then told Oprah Winfrey in the accompanying interview that after the release of her first single Easy on Me from the new album 30, her son was taken aback by her popularity.

She said: ‘There was like a hundred thousand people waiting [and] you had all these likes,’ she recalled Angelo saying. ‘Then he was like, ‘People really like you.’ ‘
Adele then discussed her hopes for her son’s future with the chat show host, saying she only wants for him to be a ‘good and happy person.’
‘I don’t expect anything of him,’ she explained. ‘I don’t care what his career is, as long as he’s passionate about whatever it is that he does and that he’s happy.’
In the interview Adele also revealed that adjusting to being a single parent and her divorce was a ‘process’ and ‘exhausting’.
During the chat the star went into detail about what inspired the lyrics for her new song Hold On.
The track’s verse goes as follows: ‘I am such a mess, the harder that I try, I regress, I’m my own worst enemy, right now I truly hate being me.
‘Everyday feels like the road I’m on might just open up and swallow me whole. How do I feel so mighty small when I struggle to feel at all…’

Asking her about the inspiration for the emotional tune, Oprah, 67, pried: ‘Another new song on the album is titled Hold On, the lyrics of this song are so brutally honest, it sounds like you were in the dark, dark, dark hours there.
‘Girl you can write! So what was going on there what was happening?’
Adele responded: ‘Oh thank you. My friends would always say ‘hold on’ when I felt like those lyrics in the verse. It was just exhausting trying to keep going with it.
‘It’s a process the divorce, the process of being a single parent, the process of not seeing your child every single day wasn’t really the plan that I had when I became a mum.
‘The process of arriving for yourself every single day, the process of turning up for yourself every single day and still running a home, running a business.’
She added: ‘So many people will know what I’m talking about and I juggle those things as well and I just sometimes felt like not doing it anymore.
‘And also trying to move forward but with intention, not just trying to get out of it for no reason. It made my feet hurt, walking through all that concrete!’
