Adele: Billboard's Top Artist of 2011!

Adele graces the cover of Billboard‘s latest issue, which crowns her as No. 1 on its Top Artist of the Year list.

The 23-year-old British songstress also earned two of the mag’s other biggest year-end chart honors – No. 1 Billboard 200 Album (with 21) and No. 1 Hot 100 song (“Rolling in the Deep”)!

Here’s what Adele had to share:

On finding love again: “Not having someone to share all this with made me miserable at times, to be honest. I wanted nothing more than to be in love and be loved back. That was until I remembered I was sharing it with millions and millions and millions of people! I haven’t been ready to be in love again since summer 2009 … until now. And I hadn’t met anyone along the way who’s changed that.”

On her next album: “I’m really looking forward to some time to do nothing. I imagine I’ll be 25 or 26 by the time my next record comes out, as I haven’t even thought about my third record yet. I’m just gonna lay some concrete, set up home and just ‘be’ for a bit. I’ll disappear and come back with a record when it’s good enough. There will be no new music until it’s good enough and until I’m ready.”
