British singer Adele opened up about making her upcoming album, and love life in an interview with Vogue magazine, published on Thursday.
Adele appeared on the November 2021 cover of Vogue magazine, where she talks about returning to the studio to record her first album in six years.
"It's sensitive for me, this record, just in how much I love it," Adele said. "I always say that 21 doesn't belong to me anymore. Everyone else took it into their hearts so much. I'm not letting go of this one. This is my album. I want to share myself with everyone, but I don't think I'll ever let this one go."
The singer also talked about her porce, asserting that self-care and the work she put into making her new music have helped her deal with anxiety in recent years.
"It was a lot of sound baths. It was a lot of meditation. It was a lot of therapy. And a lot of time spent on my own," Adele said of her efforts, adding time at the gym was also key.
"It became my time. I realized that when I was working out, I didn't have any anxiety. It was never about losing weight. I thought, If I can make my body physically strong, and I can feel that and see that, then maybe one day I can make my emotions and my mind physically strong."
The porce seemed to be hard for Adele but she affirmed that she has "been on my journey to find my true happiness ever since."
She touched on some of the joy she has found with her new boyfriend, sports agent Rich Paul. The two were friends for some time before they started dating, she said.
"He was always there, I just didn't see him," she told Vogue over rounds of Aperol spritzes, revealing that the two met at a party a couple of years ago. "I was a bit drunk. I said: Do you want to sign me? I'm an athlete now. He's just so f---ing funny." And also: "He was dancing. All the other guys were just sitting around. He was just dancing away."
Moreover, the "Hello" singer expressed her deep love for Beyoncé in the interview.
“Music was my sibling I never had. That’s why I love Beyoncé so much. She would put out music so regularly, it would be like seeing her. It really felt like that for me. It made me feel a lot of things.”
She also revealed that she had spoken to her after winning against her at the 2017 Grammys.
“I just said to her… the way that the Grammys works and the people who control it… They don’t want to support the way she’s moving things forward with her releases and the things that she’s talking about.”
On losing weight, she speculates that fans were confused by her “100-pound” weight loss because she didn't Instagram her process. “People are shocked because I didn’t share my ‘journey,’” Adele said.
“They’re used to people documenting everything on Instagram, and most people in my position would get a big deal with a diet brand. I couldn’t give a flying fuck," she added. "I did it for myself and not anyone else. So why would I ever share it? I don’t find it fascinating. It’s my body.”
“The gym became my time. I realized that when I was working out, I didn’t have any anxiety. It was never about losing weight”
