"It's very easy to give in to being famous," the singer says in her interview, hitting newsstands on Sunday. "Because it's charming. It's powerful. It draws you in. Really, it's harder work resisting it. But after a while I just refused to accept a life that was not real."

Adele's highly anticipated third studio album, 25, will be released on Nov. 20 on the heels of its record-shattering lead single, "Hello."

Rumor has it, Adele has another new gig coming down the pipeline. Deadline reports that the star is in talks to re-team with her "Hello" music video director, Xavier Dolan, for a cameo appearance in his film, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, which stars Jessica Chastain, Kit Harrington, Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates. Sadly, Adele is not expected to record any new music for the film.

While we wait (impatiently) for 25 to arrive in all its glory, let's relive some of the highlights from Adele's whirlwind press tour. See her stunningly simple Rolling Stone cover, and find out which pop star she wants in her squad, in the video below.
