This is turning out to be the year of Adele! The 27-year-old is the new cover star of Rolling Stone magazine, and she's sans eyeliner!
Posing barefaced, in a robe, with damp hair, Adele looks amazing on the front cover.
In the November 2015 issue of Rolling Stone, Adele opens up about feeling out of touch with the music industry, being asked to be on the cover of Playboy, and the sexism that exists in the music industry.
"I've lost touch with music," Adele admits. "Not, like, all music but I feel like I don't know what's going on in the charts and in popular culture. I've not lost touch with, like, reality. Just with what's current."
Adele reveals that she's a fan of FKA Twigs, Alabama Shakes, and that she snuck into the crowd at Glastonbury to see Kanye West perform.
She also reveals that Hello isn't a song about one particular person, or ex. "If I were still writing about him, that'd be terrible," she says. "Hello is as much about regrouping with myself, reconnecting with myself."
Referring to the line "hello from the other side," she comments: "It sounds a bit morbid, like I'm dead, but it's actually just from the other side of becoming an adult, making it out alive from your late teens, early twenties."
Adele also talks about her size, and how she has been asked to cover Playboy many times.
"Would I show my body off if I was thinner? Probably not, because my body is mine. But sometimes I'm curious to know if I would have been as successful if I wasn't plus-size. I think I remind everyone of themselves. Not saying everyone is my size, but it's relatable because I'm not perfect, and I think a lot of people are portrayed as perfect, unreachable and untouchable."
She finds a lot of the questions she's faced on these issues to be blatantly sexist. "I've been asked 'Would you do Playboy?' so many fucking times, it's ridiculous," she says. "And is that because I'm a woman or because I'm fat?"
