Adele covers 'People'; Talks about her son Angelo and her crippling stage fright

Adele covers the latest edition of People magazine in the wake of her new album’s release. She talked to NPR about all of the fuss surrounding the album, titled 25 and her son Angelo.

With regard to the album’s response, she said, “I mean, I was prepared. I wasn’t going into it blind, you know. I know the difference between my two lives – and by two lives, I mean ‘mummy,’ and then me – so obviously, I was kind of braced for it. Not on this level, ’cause it’s never ever been on this level.”

She said that her son Angelo goes with her “everywhere”. She revealed, “He just brings me back down to earth. So I’m feeling pretty balanced about it, actually, and I have only him to thank for that.”

Adele has already sold 900,000 copies of her new album, but Angelo would never buy one if he could. She revealed, “He likes Twinkle Twinkle, Row Row Row Your Boat, Batman – stuff like that. He’s not interested in what I do. He knows I’m a singer and he loves it, and he’s proud. He knows that it’s going well. But, yeah, he’s not – he wouldn’t buy my record if he could.”

She went on to say, “Now that I’m a mom, I feel like everything I do, I’m making a legacy for my child. So I try and be proper and professional with all of my life, not just my career. I think it’s really important that I’m very articulate with my feelings going forward, because he will read all about this one day, and I want him to know that I cared about how I was portrayed when he existed in my life, that I wasn’t flippant with those things. I don’t want to be a baby raising a baby.”

With regard to relaxing, she says that she gets “so nervous with live performances that I’m too frightened to try anything new.”

She said, “It’s actually getting worse. Or it’s just not getting better, so I feel like it’s getting worse, because it should’ve gotten better by now.”

She added that she keeps it all together for her son. She said, “The love I feel for him is so poignant and overwhelming. It takes my breath away that I am able to love someone that much, and that’s what I’ve been looking for my whole life.”

Adele covers ‘Rolling Stone’ in makeup-free photo

Adele covers 'Rolling Stone' in makeup-free photo

Adele is shown on the cover of the new issue of “Rolling Stone” and she looks gorgeous and natural without makeup.

She gave a good sized interview to the music magazine and below we have some snippets.

On the topic of popular music these days, she said, “I’ve lost touch with music. Not, like, all music. But I feel like I don’t know what’s going on in the charts and in popular culture. I’ve not lost touch with, like, reality. Just with what’s current.”

On the topic of fame, she doesn’t feel that it’s all that much fun. She lives with her boyfriend Simon Konecki and their son Angelo, but isn’t too fond of her celebrity status. She said, “People think I hate being famous. And I don’t. I’m really frightened of it. Watching Amy [Winehouse] deteriorate is one of the reasons I’m a bit frightened. We were all very entertained by her being a mess, I was f**king sad about it, but if someone showed me a picture of her looking bad, I’d look at it. If we hadn’t looked, then they’d have stopped taking her picture.”

With regard to her relationship, she said, “He’s so supportive. And that takes a very big man, because I’m very successful at what I do. My last boyfriend was uncomfortable with how successful I was, and the fact that he had to share me with lots of people.”

She said that her son is her “paradise” and that she has taken him to every park she can find. She added, “He’s a little angel. All the things I really like about myself, he brings out in me, and he’s the only person that tells me no. He completely rules me. He’s the boss of me, and it’s so funny for other people to watch, because I’m the boss of everything in my work life.”

Everything You Need To Know About Adele’s New Album!

Screen Shot 2015-08-28 at 9.12.13 AM

Everybody’s been waiting for Adele’s new record since 2014…and we  might ACTUALLY be able to hear it soon!

The singer has been hinting at a follow-up to her 2011 blockbuster, 21  for more than a year but this Fall she’ll finally be able to make good on her promise of a November release on something NEW. So what’s the deal with the album? Here’s what we know…

According to Billboard, Danger Mouse has been working on the album, and Max Martin has contributed a single. Canadian singer-songwriter Tobias Jesso Jr. also has written a (reportedly, standout) track, and OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder is back in the mix after producing and co-writing “Rumour Has It” on 21. (Yeah, I know, a OneRepublic dude co-wrote Rumour Has it?! WEIIIIRRRDDDD)

Adele and her team are super silent about the whole thing, as obvi there’s a LOT of pressure surrounding its success. Her sophomore LP sold over 11 million copies and was the top-selling album of the year in both 2011 and 2012, SO, you KNOW.  In July, Ed Sheeran told the U.K.’s Capital FM, “I haven’t heard [Adele’s album], but everyone I know who’ve worked on it is just like, ‘Dude… that record!’ Apparently, it’s really good.”

Yeah, DUH.

Are you excited for her new album?!?!

Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 1.51.43 PM

AWW!!!!  Stevie Nicks made Adele‘s NIGHT last night…and it is positively heartwarming!

The Rolling In The Deep singer attended the opening night of Fleetwood Mac‘s European tour at London’s O2 Arena, and she was SUPER FANGIRLING OUT ALL OVER SOCIAL MEDIA!  Forget the Grammys- this concert made Adele lose her cool for real.

How do we know? Because when Stevie caught wind that Grammy award winner was in house, she dedicated her iconic song Landslide to Adele!

So awesome.

Afterwards, the songstress joined Florence + The Machine‘s frontwoman Florence Welch backstage. Adele posted a selfie with Stevie (above) on Twitter with the caption:

“So…tonight was THE best night of my life. I love you Stevie Nicks!! The queen of melodies! Thanks for everything x”

And Here’s Flo’s pic with Stevie below.

Sounds like the best lady musician lovefest ever!
