The Fleetwood Mac star is disappointed that, in the past, she didn’t know she “had the energy to do an entire set totally sober”.
She said: “Yes, it [doing drugs] was a lot of fun between 1975 and 1990 – until it wasn’t. I walk onstage every night now and do a three-hour show with Fleetwood Mac, and I have a great time up there.
“I wish I had known that I actually had the energy to do this entire set totally sober and get just as excited. On one hand, that makes me feel great and on the other it makes me sad that I ever did my first line of coke.”
Asked which other female artists she looks up to, she said: “I have so many favourites. I love Katy Perry and Adele.
The Fleetwood Mac legend loves the ‘Roar’ singer and admires the ‘Hello’ hitmaker – who has three-year-old son Angelo with her partner Simon Konecki – for being so successful that it doesn’t matter how long she takes to write an album, she will always be in demand.
And I’m so happy for Adele right now. And the 68-year-old musician has praised ‘Hello’ hitmaker Adele for believing in herself and feeling confident enough to take a hiatus.She’ll do what I did – she’ll figure out a way to stay in the business.
She told The New York Times newspaper: “If she needs to go away for three years, she doesn’t feel like somebody’s going to take her place. When you believe in yourself that much, you can take as long as you want.”
“The big difference between her and me is that she has a child, and that will change things for her, but I think Adele knows what she wants and I don’t think she’s in a hurry.
Meanwhile, Adele, 28, previously admitted she ended up “sobbing all over” the ‘Landslide’ hitmaker when they first met.
She shared: “I was sobbing all over her, oh my God. I don’t really like crying in front of famous people because it’s awkward and it can make them feel really uncomfortable. But I couldn’t contain myself.”
