Adele Is Looking Vogue-ulous!

0212-adele-inset-810x960

Dannnnggggg Adele!

She’s on the cover of Vogue and looking amazing.  And her interview is just as real and spans LOTS of topics.  Check out my fave highlights:

On wearing spanks: “I lost a bit of weight. Now I fit into normal, off-the-shelf clothes — which is really a big problem for me,” she continues. Adele adds that she still wears Spanx during performances — and putting them on is like “pumping a sausage bag full of meat!”

She describes her favorite song on her new album, “When We Were Young” as: “a bit of a letter to myself. It’s really about regrouping,” she explains, “because naturally me and my friends have dispersed. We all love each other still, but we don’t have time to be unconditional and 24/7. . . . My eyes were so cloudy for a year after I had my child, and I thought I would never regroup with myself, ever.”

On Bruno Mars: “I’ve always been a really big fan of Bruno,” says Adele, “but when we worked together he was beyond. He can do anything, literally singing the best vocals you’ve ever heard live in your life while he is playing a drum or a bass or doing some mad percussion riff. I think he definitely will be the biggest, biggest, biggest artist in the world.”

On learning how to cook: “Mum went to Italy for a few months just before 21 came out, so I was left to fend on my own,” she remembers. “I got really bored of takeaways, so I thought I would learn how to cook. I actually started from Jamie’s 30-Minute Meals.” She specializes in pan-global comfort food, “but right now it’s boring,” she says. “It’s just panfried sea bass and spinach!”

On her love of the Spice Girls: “People always think I joke about this,” she says, “but the Spice Girls blew up when I was seven. And seeing them coming from a humble background—there was hope in it. It was really a massive part of my life when the whole Girl Power thing happened.”

I love the Spice Girls, too! I think I’m probably the next Adele.

Beyonce Delayed Her Album Release To Let Adele’s “25” Shine

Screen Shot 2016-01-26 at 9.06.10 AM

Friendly or patronizing? You be the judge!

Beyonce has a brand new record on the way, but sources suggest she delayed the release in order to allow Adele‘s 25 to shine. Now, I gotta say, I’m torn. I definitely think this was a good move on Beyonce’s part, but not because she might take away listeners. Honestly, I think Adele’s much-anticipated hype may have hampered BEY’s success more than it would hurt Adele’s. Beyonce’s a powerhouse, but in my humble opinion…Adele’s a legend.

While the superstar was reportedly ready to release her sixth album at the close of 2015, sources have suggested the star stuck to a ‘code’ by allowing Adele to have her share of the spotlight with her first album in four years.

‘It was wrapped up at the end of 2015 but she held off on a release as a code of honour to Adele, so their records didn’t clash,’ an insider has alleged to The Sun.

‘Beyonce doesn’t have the pressure of releasing an album and is doing bits here and there because she and her team know it is Adele’s time to shine. The last few months have been all about her comeback.

Adele has broken a string of records with her third album, with the debut single Hello spending its first 10 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

‘Now Adele’s sales are starting to die down, Beyonce is ready to drop her album at any time. But there’s a very strong chance the announcement could happen during the Super Bowl next month,’ the insider has added of Beyonce’s plan.

Smart move, but I like how her reasoning makes her seem more humble and co-oporative than she probably is. I guess we’ll see which album is better/sells more when Bey’s drops…

Who do you think is the better artist? Bey or Adele?

Adele Is Everbody’s Hero.

Screen Shot 2015-12-22 at 2.49.53 PM

Dang.

Adele is breaking every record out there AND doing things for women AND being herself and being REAL AS HELLl. The Time interview (which you can read in full here) took place in November, so it isn’t quite as current as any of you crazy Adele superfans would like, but it’s still really great. Here are some highlights:

She has “no idea” how she sold so many records: “It’s a bit ridiculous. I’m not even from America. Maybe they think I’m related to the Queen. Americans are obsessed with the royal family.”

She hates the word “brand”: “They all use that word. It makes me sound like a fabric softener, or a packet of crisps.”

She doesn’t want to be an a—hole: “Some artists, the bigger they get, the more horrible they get, and the more unlikable. I don’t care if you make an amazing album—if I don’t like you, I ain’t getting your record. I don’t want you being played in my house if I think you’re a bastard.”

She writes music the old-school way: “I’m not precious about writing credits—it’s whatever makes the best song. But I can’t do that. I can’t write a song based on a track… I write a song from beginning to end. I don’t go in sections. It’s a story… I’m not saying my album is incredible, but there’s conviction in it. And I believe the f-ck out of myself on this album.”

She’s not all about social media: “It’s ridiculous that high-profile people have that much access to the public. How am I supposed to write a real record if I’m waiting for half a million likes on a photo? That ain’t real.”

She didn’t want her album to be streamed: “I don’t use streaming. I buy my music. I download it, and I buy a physical [copy] just to make up for the fact that someone else somewhere isn’t. It’s a bit disposable, streaming. I know that streaming music is the future, but it’s not the only way to consume music,” she says. She believes “music should be an event.”

What she thinks of the comparisons to Taylor Swift (just with the streaming thing):
“It was amazing. I love her—how powerful she is. We’ll get lumped together now because of it, but I think we would both feel the ability to say yes or no to things even if we weren’t successful.”

She also tells Time Magazine that she’s already thinking ahead to how Angelo is going to come with her when she tours, which is adorable.

Man, when I think about Adele and think about who’s like, a peer of hers in this day and age, I’m hard pressed to come up with someone.  I mean, I  guess Taylor Swift? I mean, I don’t think that Tay holds a candle to Adele. She’s the real deal.

Adele Doesn’t Like To Do Things In Moderation

Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 5.25.09 PM

Adele sure doesn’t like to do stuff in moderation, which is why it’s such news when she quits something or betters her health. Am I right?

Last week it was a big deal when Adele lost weight because she drank 20 sugars a day with her extreme amount of tea. Now revealed that she quit smoking  20 cigarettes a day because she feared it would kill her. And ya know? I’m not a doc but she’s probably right.

She said: “If I’d carried on smoking I’d probably have died from a smoking-related illness and I think that’s really bad. If I was dying from lung cancer I would have potentially given it to myself and that wouldn’t be something I’d be proud of.”

Girl had to cancel shows in 2011 after losing her voice, so she should really be taking care of herself- finally, it looks like she is. Hey Adele- nobody wants you to stop singing, like EVER. So stay healthy GEEEZZZZZ ADELE!
