Adele covers the upcoming October issue of British Vogue. The Grammy-winning singer talks becoming a brand, pre-show nerves, and body image with the magazine.
On critics focusing on her body and not her music:
“I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down,” she tells the magazine. “And I don’t want that in my life. I have insecurities, of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me. My life is full of drama and I won’t have time to worry about something as petty as what I look like,” she continued. “I don’t like going to the gym. I like eating fine foods and drinking nice wine. Even if I had a really good figure, I don’t think I’d get my tits and ass out for no one.”
“I puke quite a lot before going on stage,” she tells the magazine (via Just Jared). Though never actually on stage. But then, I s*it myself before everything … the bigger the freak-out, the more I enjoy the show!”
Becoming a brand:
“I don’t want to see me plastered everywhere, before adding ‘If they offered me £10million, I’d be like f*** off. Besides if I was going to be the face of anything it should be the face of full-fat coke.”
