Adele Is Basically On Fire In Her TIME Interview: "My Main Priority In Life Outside Of My Child Is Beyoncé"
For the fifth time today, why aren't we friends yet?
Adele has not only unveiled her most flawless mag cover yet, but she's also proved that it is actually possible for a celeb to be brutally honest in an interview.
Chatting to TIME mag, the record breaker opens up about her thoughts on Instagram, refusing to be a brand and why if she doesn't like someone, she doesn't want 'that bastard's' music playing in her house.
These are just a few of our fave moments, enjoy!
She's not a packet of skips, okay?
“I don’t like that word,” she says of “brand.” “It makes me sound like a fabric softener, or a packet of crisps. I’m not that. But there’s personality in an artist, and if you’re expecting people to let you in and give themselves to you, you have to be a whole package."
On being likeable...
"I feel like some artists—and this isn’t shading any artist, just me trying to come up with my own explanation—the bigger they get, the more horrible they get, and the more unlikable. And 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.”
Well, is she collaborating with Beyonce?!
"Whoever started that rumor must have been having a laugh because anyone who knows me knows that my main priority in life outside of my child is Beyoncé,” she said.
“I really wanted to do a duet on this album. I spoke to someone about it who I wanted to do it with, and we got on like a house on fire, and then we just couldn’t logistically really get it to work. I can’t say who it is because I want to do it in the future. That’s the only reason. It wasn’t Beyoncé!”
On why she's not into social media...
“Privacy is key to being able to write a real record, whether people like it or not,” she explained.
“My life has changed so much, but I’ve made the realest record I can make, and it’s the real part of me. How am I supposed to write a real record if I’m waiting for half a million likes on a f—ing photo? That ain’t real.”
And she's let go of her anxieties…
"I don’t want to have plastic surgery. I’m going to look like this forever. Deal with it. Once you deal with it, you feel more calm about it.”
