The 'Hello' hitmaker hates the way technology has taken over lives and is convinced wireless internet and devices will wipe out the world over the next quarter of decade.

She explained: "People would rather have a photo to show to people than actually enjoy a moment. It's weird--when I first started out, nearly 10 years ago, no one had their phones out. I'd go onstage to people. Now I go onstage to 18,000 phones. It's pretty because of the lights . . . but no one is actually looking at the world--they're on their phones all the time. Also, this Wi-Fi, you watch, it's going to f***ing' kill our insides . . . it's just floating around. I'm telling you, we'll find out in 25 years."

The 28-year-old singer used to be a "massive drinker" and chain-smoker but she now limits her alcohol intake and has quit the cigarettes since becoming a mother to her three-year-old son Angelo and undergoing surgery on her vocal cords.

She explained to Vanity Fair magazine: "Having a hangover with a child is torture. Just imagine an annoying three year old who knows something's wrong; it's hell.

"I'm too scared to ever take drugs. I used to love to be drunk, but as I got more famous I would wake up the next morning and think, 'What the f**l did I say and who the f**k did I say it to?' I never had blackouts, but when you're drunk and you go to a party, you'll talk to anyone. I can see from an outsider's perspective that I will never write songs as good as the ones that are on '21', but I'm not as indulgent as I was then, and I don't have time to fall apart like I did then.

"I was completely off my face writing that album, and a drunk tongue is an honest one. I would drink two bottles of wine, and I would chain-smoke. Then I'd write the lyrics down and the next morning think, 'F**k, that's quite good.' Then I'd find the melody. But since I've had my baby, I'm not as carefree as I used to be. I'm scared of a lot of things now because I don't want to die; I want to be around for my kid.

"I'm very cautious, whereas I was never cautious before. I would never have done anything before that would make me die, but now I go out of my way to avoid anything that is remotely dangerous--like walking along a sidewalk. I'd rather walk on the grass or a lawn, rather than the pavement, in case a car crashes into me."
