Despite immense acclaim, 10 GRAMMY awards and over 20 million albums sold worldwide, Adele recently admitted that she still struggles with body image issues -- but she knows how to keep things in perspective.

Sitting down for a "Town Hall" interview on SiriusXM on Monday, the "Hello" singer opened up about her struggles with positive self-image, and how she's maintained a positive attitude.

"I do have body image problems, for sure. But I don't let them rule my life at all," Adele shared.

The 27-year-old singer -- whose latest album, 25, comes out Nov. 20 -- explained that, with a little perspective, it's easy to remember that her problems don't compare to those faced by many others across the globe.

"There's bigger issues going on in the world than how I might feel about myself," Adele shared.

On top of everything, Adele says she respects and appreciates the importance of individuality, which brings her comfort when she doubts herself.

"There's only one of you, so why would you want to look like everyone else?" Adele said. "Why would you want to have the same hair style as everybody else and have the same opinions as everybody else?"

Adele revealed that she's also found happiness in another facet of her life: being a mom.

When asked about what she's enjoyed the most about motherhood, Adele shared, "Everything else in my life being about someone else, and not about myself."

"He really slows the world down for me, which I appreciate," she said of her 3-year-old son Angelo with boyfriend Simon Konecki.

According to Adele, she really enjoys "the out-of-body experience of loving someone so much, regardless of anything."
