Adele’s cat-eye look is iconic but she is just as stunning without it. She goes makeup-free on the cover of Rolling Stone this month, sporting damp hair and a terry cloth robe. The striking cover accompanies an intimate story, where she opens up about her relationship with partner Simon Konecki and their 3-year-old son Angelo whom she says bosses her around: “He’s the only person that tells me no. He completely rules me. He’s the boss of me, and it’s so funny for other people to watch, because I’m the boss of everything in my work life.”
She says her son actually motivated her to finish her record: “It made me really want to hurry up and finish my record…It made me desperate, actually, to come back. I was like, ‘I don’t want to wait until my kid is 16 to show him who I am.’ Because I’m very proud of what I achieved. And I wasn’t, before I had Angelo. I didn’t understand, actually, what I had achieved and how far I had come. Because everyone wants to do something with their life, and we don’t all get the opportunity because sh*t gets in the way. So I feel f**king so fortunate that the stars just aligned for me and allowed me to have the most ridiculous ride ever.”
Adele also speaks on choosing not to “show my body off” and wonders if being plus-size has helped her career: “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.”
And while she wouldn’t pose for Playboy (“I’ve been asked ‘Would you do Playboy?’ so many f**king times, it’s ridiculous…And is that because I’m a woman or because I’m fat?”), she would hang out with a crew of supermodels…and Rihanna: “I’ve heard about a squad…I wish my squad was all supermodels. We are, in our brains. I guess I have my own squad…It’s not as interesting as some of the other squads that are around right now…But maybe Rihanna can be in my squad! That would be really cool. Oh, God. She’s life itself, isn’t she? I love her.”
Can they please get on a record together and be best friends fever?
