"Rumor Has It" that 24-year-old Grammy winner Adele has turned down a seven-figure deal to pen her biography. The "Rolling in the Deep" songstress reportedly declined the publishing offer because she felt she's still too young to write a memoir. According to UK news source, The Mirror, several publishing houses, including Harper Collins, approached the new mom but she's shied away from signing onto a project.

Could age be the only thing holding Adele back?

Huffington Post points to Adele's "severe stage fright" and "struggles with her voice and health" as reasons for the "Skyfall" singer's reluctance to share her private life with the media and fans.

What do you think of Adele's rumored book deal? Do you think she should write a biography in the future? Sound off here.
