Adele broke the internet after she was revealed as the cover star of two stunning Vogue covers ahead of her new album release.
Not satisfied with just one Vogue cover, Adele has posed for both the British and American November issues, which comes just days after the 33 year old singing sensation revealed she is finally back with more music.
Alongside her gorgeous photoshoots, Adele gives her first interview in five years, opening up about her life, weight loss and divorce, as well as concerns she had when starting out in the industry aged just 19.
The star even wrote some of her best-selling singles from her first album, including Home Town Glory, when she was 16, and was concerned fame might have a similar affect on her as it did Amy Winehouse.
Speaking to US Vogue, Adele says: "I got really famous right as Amy Winehouse died.
“And we watched her die right in front of our eyes.” Adele went on to reveal that she was worried that she too could spiral out of control.
“I’ve always had a very close relationship with alcohol. I was always very fascinated by alcohol. It’s what kept my dad from me. So I always wanted to know what was so great about it.”
Of the media and the press, Adele says: “They descend, and descend, and descend on you, which drives you f***king mad.”
On Amy Winehouse's tragic death in 2011, Adele said: "It really offended me. I picked up the guitar because of Amy’s first album. She means the most to me out of all artists. Because she was British. Because she was amazing. Because she was tortured. Because she was so funny.
"I’m not having these people I don’t know take my legacy, my story away from me, and decide what I can leave behind or what I can take with me.”
In her interview with British Vogue, Adele candidly discussed the end of her marriage to Simon Konecki.
She separated from the charity CEO in 2019 with the divorce being finalised earlier this year. They share son Angelo, eight, together.
Speaking about the end of her marriage, Adele insisted that "nothing bad happened" and that it just "wasn't right" for her anymore.
The Hello hitmaker told the publication: "It just wasn’t right for me anymore. I didn’t want to end up like a lot of other people I knew. It wasn’t miserable miserable, but I would have been miserable had I not put myself first. But, yeah, nothing bad happened or anything like that."
Adele also revealed that she wrote a lot of her album for her son, Angelo, as she said: "My son has had a lot of questions. Really good questions, really innocent questions, that I just don’t have an answer for. 'Why can’t you still live together?’'
"I just felt like I wanted to explain to him, through this record, when he’s in his twenties or thirties, who I am and why I voluntarily chose to dismantle his entire life in the pursuit of my own happiness. It made him really unhappy sometimes. And that’s a real wound for me that I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to heal."
Adele added: "It’s not like anyone’s having a go at me but it’s like, I left the marriage. Be kind to me as well."
