Adele is stunning on the Vogue cover for March, with the singer talking about everything from her noticeable weight loss to life as a mom. With her generous attitude toward other artists, Adele also complimented some of her favorite singers in her Vogue interview, reported ET.
Reflecting on the difference between her life when she released her 21 album in 2011 to her 25 record in 2015, Adele focused on her health. Cherishing her ability to sing, Adele has surrendered her beloved Malboro cigarettes, stopped eating some foods to protect her throat, and even halted almost all of her alcohol. At one time, Adele reportedly drank as much as a bottle of wine daily.
“I was trying to get some stamina for my tour,” explained Adele. “So I lost a bit of weight.”
And the result of that weight loss is that Adele wows with her beauty on the Vogue cover, published on Instagram by the magazine.
Turning to the topic of other singers, Adele revealed her admiration for Bruno Mars, gushing over her predictions for him.
“I’ve always been a really big fan of Bruno. 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.”
Mars isn’t the only one to get praise from Adele. She also cherishes the song “Salvatore” from Lana Del Rey.
“Her lyrics are fierce. The chorus of this song makes me feel like I’m flying, like that bit in your life when it goes into slo-mo. When you’ve got nothing to do and you’re staring out of the window and your mind goes to magical places,” gushed Adele.
And when it comes to magic, Adele believes there’s something unique in her role as a mom to son Angelo Konecki, discussing her “Mum” title with pride.
“When I became a parent, I felt like I was truly living. I had a purpose, where before I didn’t,” explained Adele. “My main thing is Mum, then it’s me, then it’s work.”
Adele reflected on how she feels about herself overall in her interview with Vogue.
“I like myself more than ever. I feel so comfortable in my own skin. I really like how I look, I like who I am, I like everyone that I surround myself with,” revealed Adele.
With her wry British sense of humor, the singer doesn’t hold back from joking about her appearance, though, referring to her “bum chin” and “potato fingers.” And she’s also candid about how she feels using Spanx.
“Like pumping a sausage bag full of meat!” joked Adele of the body-slimming garments.
But there’s a downside to the weight loss that the singer flaunts on the Vogue cover.
“Now I fit into normal, off-the-shelf clothes—which is a really big problem for me!” admitted Adele, hinting that she’s become a shopaholic.
There’s no topic about which she won’t joke, and that is the protective attitude that Adele and her partner Simon Konecki have toward her son Angelo. They sued the British paparazzi successfully to protect the child, reported the New York Daily News.
“We need to have some privacy,” said Adele firmly. “I think it’s really hard being a famous person’s child. What if he wants to smoke weed or drink underage, or what if he’s gay and doesn’t want to tell me, and then he’s photographed and that’s how I find out?”
As for her weight loss, Adele began shedding pounds in 2011 when she and Simon shifted to a vegetarian diet, according to Hollywood Take.
Adele also started jogging with her dog at that time, boosting her slim-down success. In addition to that plant-based diet, the singer reduced her sugar intake and headed to the gym.
