Adele Covers 'British Vogue' October 2011

Adele graces the cover of British Vogue‘s October issue.

Here’s what the 23-year-old English singer had to share with the mag:

On her pre-show ritual: “I puke quite a lot before going on stage. Though never actually on stage. But then, I s— myself before everything … the bigger the freak-out, the more I enjoy the show!”

On the entertainment industry’s obsession with weight: “I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down. And I don’t want that in my life. I have insecurities, of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me.”

On being single: “I do get massively distracted when I’ve got someone in my life, which I can’t afford to do right now. Besides, no one treats me as well as I do.”

On preferring sons over daughters: “I’ve always got on better with boys. Most of my friends are boys. Like, if I ever have children, I want five boys. Boys love their mothers whereas girls can be so mean to each other.”

    What a beautiful face she has!
    Can you imagine all the furor and publicity she’ll generate if she lost weight to a very healthy size??
    All the commercial contracts she’ll gain.
    Just like Sophie Dahl had in the 90s.

    Love her. AHHH MAZINGGGGG voice. the kind you get chills from when you hear. I’ve been waiting for another singer like that for YEARRRRSSSSSS. We haven’t seen such talent since the 90s triple threat that was (in their primes); Whitney,Mariah,Celine. Go Adele!!!!

    This might be the first vogue cover I buy in more than five years. Ever since the departure of the fuller looking supermodels, I have never bought Vogue. I just love the way Adele does her eye make-up. Whoever does her makeup is a genius.

    I LOVE ADELE! So beautiful! Adele’s one of the most beautiful and inspirational singers out there. Im so happy we have her to represent the UK. Just goes to show there are people from the UK that are able to become world-wide singing sensations.

    With some of these comments I can understand why young girls want to starve themselves. I hate to break it to some of you but being skinny and dancing around stage in slutty clothes while lipsyncing an overly auto-tuned doesn’t mean you’re talented. Adele is a REAL talent!

    one word to descride her is “ UNSTOPABLE” i love her and always will. she is saying inspirational words on the first of binder with a cigarette in her hand. never stop loving and theres no one like you ily forever

    aww she’s so sweet and I can tell she is nervous performing on stage. she does get awkward when speaking between songs but Adele you sound AMAZING and we love that you are humble and normal. I hate these arrogant performers that think what they do is performance art. You are getting the attention you deserve. And for the haters calling her fat we all know its the lil monsters who have a monkey for an idol. don’t listen to them Adele you are beautiful. One more thing please stop smoking you have a gift & your health to take of :)

  • kori

    @Jane: She has the talent..what do you have? Miserable, envious low life!

  • Karishma

    She doesn’t need to do hideous thing on herself to look different. She is interesting the way she is.
