On her personality: : I am quite loud and bolshie. I’m a big personality. I walk into a room, big and tall and loud. Indeed, there is no doubt when Adele is in the building. The rule of thumb for protecting one’s vocal cords is: If people are more than an arm’s length away, you shouldn’t talk to them. But I am like, Wah! Wah! Wah! It’s really bad… I was always the joker at school. But I didn’t really realize I had a natural sense of humor until I started telling stories onstage. You get the timing down. Also, people laugh when I open my mouth anyway, even if I don’t tell a joke, because they are laughing at my accent.
On how she feels about award shows: 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.
On performing: I definitely think that less is more. I don’t think I could pull it off, doing an elaborate show. There are a couple of songs that are worthy of a few explosions and dancing teams and stuff like that. But I would feel really uncomfortable displaying my music like that. I just want to sing it. I don’t want to perform with my body.
On Beyonce: She’s been a huge and constant part of my life as an artist since I was about ten or eleven. I love how all of her songs are about empowerment. Even when she’s married and Jay-Z put a ring on it, she releases ‘Single Ladies.’ Go get yours. Go get what you deserve. I think she’s really inspiring. She’s beautiful. She’s ridiculously talented, and she is one of the kindest people I’ve ever met. I’m the total opposite. I can moan my ass off; I can be lazy. She makes me want to do things with my life.
On her last relationship: Even though my emotions aren’t with my ex at all anymore, it’s still like stepping back into that really painful time [when I sing my heart-break songs]. So every show is pretty emotional. It takes a toll. You know, he was amazing. He was great. But it was never going to work. And for ages I was like, ‘As if he deserves any fucking kudos for inspiring my record.’ But now, after some time, it only seems right that the person who, so far, has had the biggest impact on me — has now changed my life for fucking ever with this album — deserves a little credit. I can do things that I never dreamed I’d be able to do. If I hadn’t met him, I think I’d still be that little girl I was when I was eighteen. And the best thing is, I now know what I want for myself and from someone else. I didn’t know what I wanted before.
On her relationship personality: 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. Well, most girls don’t!
About her new boyfriend: He’s wonderful. And he’s proud of me, but he don’t care about what I do or what other people think. He looks after me. I don’t think I would have gotten through the recovery for my surgery if it hadn’t been for him.
