Grammy award winning UK singer/songwriter Adele features on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine that hits shelves on April 15th. In the feature interview with Rolling Stone contributing editor Touré the chart topping singer discusses the effects of her relationships on her music, her childhood, her thoughts on body image and not having to show all to get to the top.

The 22 year old artist who’s current album 21 is topping charts globally says “My life is full of drama and I won’t have time to worry about something as petty as what I look like,” she continues “I don’t like going to the gym. I like eating fine foods and drinking nice wine. Even if I had a really good figure, I don’t think I’d get my tits and ass out for no one.”

“I love seeing Lady Gaga’s boobs and bum,” she says. “I love seeing Katy Perry’s boobs and bum. Love it. But that’s not what my music is about. I don’t make music for eyes. I make music for ears.”

• Many of the songs on her hit album 21 were inspired by a break-up with her boyfriend. “He was artistic, but not romantic,” she says. “We’d just bicker over a cup of tea or the fact that my lighter wasn’t working.” Nonetheless, Adele says, “He made me an adult and put me on the road that I’m traveling on.”

• Despite the fact that she’s one of the most successful new recording artists of the past few years, Adele still has terrible stage fright. “I’m scared of audiences,” she says. “One show in Amsterdam I was so nervous I escaped out the fire exit. I’ve thrown up a couple of times. Once in Brussels I projectile vomited on someone. I just gotta bear it. But I don’t like touring. I have anxiety attacks a lot.”

• Adele says her dad was never in the picture. He recently talked to a British tabloid and said that he regretted his actions. “I never knew my dad,” she says. “He has no fuckin’ right to talk about me.”
