Adele covers Rolling Stone Magazine "I don't make music for eyes. I make music for ears"


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."
