The 24-year old pop star is reported to have said she was 'far too young' to write a memoir

A source told The Mirror that HarperCollins had approached the singer's management team with a generous offer for her autobiography, reported The Belfast Telegraph. The 'generous offer' has been speculated to have been a seven-figure sum.

'Adele’s never been a really showy person,' said the source. 'So it was always going to take a lot to get her to write her life story anyway.
'But even though she received a lucrative offer, her primary concern was that she doesn’t want to write a book about just 24 years. She feels she’d rather wait until she has more life experience to write about.'

Do you agree with Adele? When do you think is the best time in life to start writing a memoir?
