You know what’s just as gorgeous as Adele‘s Vogue cover? The rest of the Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott-lensed photos.
That face, you guys! Unreal. The songstress is also the subject of a lengthy profile in the magazine. She admits to having a crush on Alec Baldwin, gushes about Beyoncé, and claims she doesn’t “have a very big capacity for language and words” (we’d disagree). Here are some of our favorite bits:
On red carpets:
“I hate the red carpet. I don’t feel insecure, I just feel like, Oh, I don’t want to do this. I literally get a stomach cramp. At the VMA’s last year I felt really out of my comfort zone because there were so many superstars there. But that’s been the case from day one. I never feel like, Oh, yeah, I should be here. And I was missing my best friend’s hen night. So I was a bit bitter that I wasn’t there, to be perfectly honest.”
“I’m nervous whenever I perform. But seeing that it will be the first time opening my mouth again onstage in front of my peers? I’m shittin’ myself. You can see the fear behind my eyes. The first TV show I ever did was Later . . . With Jools Holland, when I was eighteen, and I was sandwiched between Björk and Paul McCartney. And the fear in my eyes is exactly the same fear that’s in my eyes when I come on singing now. The more records I sell and the bigger this all gets, the bigger the shows get. It’s like a vicious cycle.”
“I love a bit of drama. That’s a bad thing. I can flip really quickly. I am not bipolar, but I go from ‘Oh, my God, I love you’ to ‘Get the fuck out of my house!’ really quickly. And I never sit there and talk about it. I give them the silent treatment. They’re like, ‘Tell me what I’ve done so I can say sorry!’ What else? It used to be that I loved a drink a bit too much. But I don’t drink no more. The good things: I am attentive. I will do anything for my man. I am a good cook. I’m funny. Always want to have sex.”
