Adele Covers 'Vogue' March 2012

Grammy juggernaut Adele takes the cover of Vogue‘s March 2012 issue.

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

On having voice troubles: “I’ve been singing properly every day since I was about fifteen or sixteen, and I have never had any problems with my voice, ever. I’ve had a sore throat here and there, had a cold and sung through it, but that day it just went while I was onstage in Paris during a radio show. It was literally like someone had pulled a curtain over it.”

On her Grammy nominations: “I burst into tears when I found out. And I would love, absolutely love, to win. This record is coming to an end, and that would be the final brick on it.”

On her performance style: “I definitely think that less is more. I don’t think I could pull it off, doing an elaborate show. There are a couple of songs that are worthy of a few explosions and dancing teams and stuff like that. But I would feel really uncomfortable displaying my music like that. I just want to sing it. I don’t want to perform with my body.”

    I adore Adele. She deserved the Grammy’s she won. Such a talent!

  • Leenah

    She is so beautiful.She doesn’t need to be in her underwear on stage in order to get attention,her voice is enough..and her beautiful songs.A true artist of this generation.

  • Cheeze

    Adele’s amazing. American Vogue put a talented and beautiful woman on our cover…and the Brit’s put Lana del rey, a plastic faced terrible songwriter and rapper on their Vogue cover……America wins!

  • Guy

    She is unbelievable! Beautiful, talented, confident, and ACTUALLY interesting! She doesn’t care about the glitz and the glam and she doesn’t need to use a computer to make her voice sound as amazing as it does. Keep on keeping on Adele, a REAL singer in the 21st century.

  • l0nely-girl

    Queen Adele!

  • 3lodie

    @jj: ahah so true !

  • Zuba

    She’s beautiful. Most importantly though, she’s really talented. I have a feeling that Vogue is going to fly off the shelves!

    She is beautiful, they didn’t have to photoshop her. So sad for Vogue they dont get it..So Happy for Adele she is Awesome..

  • Dee

    Ridiculous that they would photoshop her she in my opinion is one of the most beautiful women out there. And I have to add that her boobs look great lol

  • Jordan

    Tits out

  • yaya

    i love that she keeps her performances simple. thats the best way to do it cause that way we can focus on the actual music and someone who has real talent and not the nonsense people continue to put out there. dont ever change adele!!! i hope she continues to make beautiful music =)

  • an opinion


  • heytherebrits

    You guys know she has lost weight recently, right?

  • jo

    She has an incredibly gorgeous face. Don’t care if she doesn’t entertain like Lady Gaga or Rihanna, she’s a great talent and beauty on her own. Gorgeous voice and great lyrics.

  • Chia

    She’s a pretty lady with a big voice, but her music is awful. Just awful.

  • Mary

    I was almost sad to see at the Grammys that she had lost a lot of weight, I hope she didnt’ do it because of the critics

  • heytherebrits

    actually she lost weight due to the surgery she had – apparently

  • ColinG


  • Deana

    Brilliant singer. She’s simply a talented singer and doesn’t need the “performance art” c.r. a p . Hear that Gaga?

  • Sayer

    Did they have to use photoshop to slim her down?

    Anyway, congrats on Grammy wins. Finally, real artists.

  • Blainey

    She has black features. Big lips and nose. Mmm!

  • Lisa

    Adele is soooooooooo A W E S O M E !

  • ellie’

    Love Adele.Shes beautiful..Her music is the best.. Congradulations..

  • karih

    Media airbrush slim women so it’s quite obvious they also photoshop curvy women, you don’t need to ask, they do that for everyone and thanks, because I’m a digital artist.
    If you watch carefully the cover, you notice her head is bigger or as big as her waist. I know Adele lost weight but her waist is not that tiny yet.

  • Anne

    She did lose weight but she does not look like that. Some major Photoshop going on there. Made her look skinny and her face is sunk in.

  • heytherebrits

    Not doubting photoshop – that’s always done. But she did lose weight.

  •*/ ADa_

    I had no idea she was 23! I’m stunned
    Gorgeous and talented woman

  • dfsNJUsa

    Wow. Adele got what she desreved and it was very nice of her to share the stage with her buddies. It’s a shame there is no Grammy for back up vocalists–there really should be. Her mere two would have totally blown away any so-called competition. They all deserved each other!!! And a band that knows exactly when to play and when to shut up–almost unheard of since The Police. Is this the best pop combination in the last 30 years!? Hard to say but on the short list!

  • FortyFiveFug

    omg this totally takes the cake on the manipulation of reality, this does not even look remotely like Adele … media spoon feeds you and you swallow !

  • note

    Note to Lana Del Ray, this is talent. This is your competition. Good luck phony bony!

  • No More!

    MAKE VOGUE GET IT. Don’t buy it until the reproduce the cover and internal photos to look more like her. I don’t know many 23 year old who wouldn’t want to look like this, but she has the power to make them take her as she is; which happens to be beautiful, endearing, and with lips Angelina Jolie should covet even when they aren’t photoshopped.

  • Warren

    Well that’s pretty sexy. I thought she didn’t want to go that route. Just sayin’ Love her and her music though.

  • ramm

    totally agree!!! ….america wins. as far as Adele goes…so sad for her own country…how misleading for Adele!!!
