Adele: Billboard's Top Artist of 2011!

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.”

    The question must be asked, can she write about anything other than failed relationships? It got tedious really quickly. What I’m trying to say is, she’s no PJ Harvey.

    When will the lil retards come to defend their Mother Retard saying Adele is Fat or that her songs sound the same. FYI lil retards Wiki is NOT a reliable source Lady Pastiche did not sell 8 million World Wide she just broke 5 million World Wide 1.9 million USA. Adele left her in the dust no tricky wording needed to fool fans that she has broke significant records. its plan and simple Adele is almost @ 14 million World Wide. Plus rolling in the deep #1 someone like you #1 I’m sure set fire to the rain will go #1. Congrats Adele you poured your heart out been real with everyone and deserve the success

    Good for her for waiting until she’s ready to make a new record instead of letting someone pressure her into another right away. It’s the people who realize that they will only be popular for a minute that feel the need to put out as many albums as possible in a short amount of time.

    I love Adele. I totaly understand what she means.
    Whoever loved once for real knows what she is about.

  • speaktruth

    Now THAT’S a smart strategy! Don’t keep shoving your image in people’s faces each year. Lay low and make them want you back. As if I didn’t love her already <3

    Wow..I like Adele’s music alot. Each time I hear her on the radio I always stop and ask myself who is that? I want to hear more. Now that I’m starting to recognize her voice more and more I realize that each song I hear of hers I like.

    Keep up the great work Adele!
