Although I don't need an escuse to talk about Adele, I'm thrilled to have the chance to mention her here. Clap clap for Rolling Stone magazine for making her the cover of their last edition almost making us forget this unfortunate incident... And she looks absolutely gorgeous! Every time I listen to her I get goosebumps. For someone who's only 21 years old, wich is also the name of her latest album, she really has a lot of soul! Her hit song Rolling in the deep has a captive place on my all time favorite playlist. Magnificent to say the least...
Here are some highlights of her interview:
"My life is full of drama and I won't have time to worry about something as petty as what I look like," she tells Rolling Stone contributing editor Touré. "I don't like going to the gym. I like eating fine foods and drinking nice wine. Even if I had a really good figure, I don't think I'd get my tits and ass out for no one."
But Adele has no beef with other female recording artists who choose to flaunt their bodies. "I love seeing Lady Gaga's boobs and bum," she says. "I love seeing Katy Perry's boobs and bum. Love it. But that's not what my music is about. I don't make music for eyes. I make music for ears."Adele also says many of the songs on her hit album 21 were inspired by a break-up with her boyfriend."He was artistic, but not romantic," she says. "We'd just bicker over a cup of tea or the fact that my lighter wasn't working." Nonetheless, Adele says, "He made me an adult and put me on the road that I'm traveling on."
Surprisingly, she reveals she still has terrible stage fright:
"I'm scared of audiences," she says. "One show in Amsterdam I was so nervous I escaped out the fire exit. I've thrown up a couple of times. Once in Brussels I projectile vomited on someone. I just gotta bear it. But I don't like touring. I have anxiety attacks a lot."

She also has an alter ego she uses to pump herself up, called Sasha Carter – a composite of Beyoncé's Sasha Fierce and June Carter. “I was about to meet Beyoncé,” she says, “and I had a full-blown anxiety attack. Then she popped in looking gorgeous, and said, ‘You’re amazing! When I listen to you I feel like I’m listening to God.’ Can you believe she said that?” Later, “I went out on the balcony crying hysterically, and I said, ‘What would Sasha Fierce do?’ That’s when Sasha Carter was born.”
