UK singer-superstar Adele covers the May 2013 issue of Elle US for their Women In Music issue, which also features Alicia Keys and Rita Ora.
The music issue includes a tribute to Adele and the thoughts of fellow musicians – including Katy Perry, Britney Spears, John Mayer and legend Barbra Streisand – on her meteoric rise to fame.
Adele talks to Elle about taking her time with her third album, the highest point of her career, the worst show she ever performed and the song which always gets her on the dance floor.
On her third album: “I’m writing the songs now, and then I’ll want to rehearse them for a while. As much as I love my first album, there are still things that I wish I had done differently. So I don’t want to rush anything. You’re only as good as your last record, so if I put out something that’s shit, nobody’s going to buy it. If it’s crap, people will be like, “Why was she ever such a big deal?” So I have to take my time. I mean, if it takes me three years, I imagine people will start getting a bit nervy… but I’ll do my best to avoid that.”

Geez, Karl Lagerfeld! You sure know how to throw an insult!
The Chanel creative director, 78, dug into Pippa Middleton during an interview with the British newspaper The Sun. After praising Kate Middleton for a while (Lagerfeld said she had a “nice silhouette, and that he liked “that kind of woman. I like romantic beauties”) he went cray cray on her 28-year-old sister! Said Lagerfeld:
“On the other hand, her sister struggles. I don’t like the sister’s face. She should only show her back.”
Woah! Granted, Pippa does have a nice derriere, but come ON!
Not that poor Pippa should be offended- Lagerfeld has been pretty cruel to other celebrities these days. In February, Lagerfeld dissed Grammy-winning singer Adele for being “a little too fat,” even though Lagerfeld himself was 100 lbs overweight a couple years ago! Lagerfeld also said Heidi Klum was too “bling bling” and not couture, saying…
“It may be Victoria’s Secret, but it is not my secret…the people in Europe – apart from in Germany – don’t know who she is. In Germany she is very current, but as a mannequin rather than a model. I have never photographed her or had her in one of my shows.”
Calm down! Who does Lagerfeld actually LIKE? Well, his close circle of friends include Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Victoria Beckham, and Claudia Schiffer, so loose a bunch of weight and always frown, and maybe Lagerfeld might be nice to you.

Last month Adele announced via her website that she was pregnant. Now, sources are reporting that the six-time Grammy winner is actually due in as little as two months, making her 7 months pregnant! Even more interesting, that means she was pregnant during her perfect performance at the Grammy’s in February!
“Adele has barely left the house in recent months, so she could keep this to herself for as long as possible,” an insider told Heat magazine. As supporting evidence, the publication also duly points out that the songstress didn’t attend the Billboard Awards in May, even though it was predicted that she would win a number of awards (in fact, she swept up 12 gongs).
Adele, 24, is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Simon Konecki, 38, with whom she made her first public appearance at the Grammys; the pair have been officially dating since January, when Adele cleared up rumors on her blog. Konecki is rumored to be proposing to the singer soon.
So excited for her! What great news!
