The "Hello" singer posed for the high-fashion magazine and was quite candid about how things have changed for her from the release of her 2011 album, 21, to the 2015 drop of her 25 record.
For starters, she admits that she's much healthier. Adele now withstands from eating or drinking certain foods in order to protect her throat and gave up Malboro cigarettes that she used to smoke regularly. She has also nearly giving up all alcohol consumption.
"I was trying to get some stamina for my tour," she said of her healthier lifestyle. "So I lost a bit of weight. Now I fit into normal, off-the-shelf clothes -- which is really a big problem for me!"
The 27-year-old artist has said in the past that she'd like to run with Rihanna, but she might also invite Bruno Mars to join her squad. "I've always been a really big fan of Bruno." she shared. "But when we worked together he was beyond. He can do anything, literally singing the best vocals you’ve ever heard live in your life while he is playing a drum or a bass or doing some mad percussion riff."
Still gushing over Mars, Adele added, "I think he definitely will be the biggest, biggest, biggest artist in the world."
In addition to the "Uptown Funk" singer, Adele had nothing but compliments for Lana Del Rey's music, her song "Salvatore" in particular. "I'm obsessed with her," she exclaimed. "Her lyrics are fierce. The chorus of this song makes me feel like I’m flying, like that bit in your life when it goes into slo-mo. When you’ve got nothing to do and you’re staring out of the window and your mind goes to magical places."
While Adele admits to being a fan of her peers, she isn't quite so interested in giving herself an image overhaul every few years like other artists tend to do. "I don’t have it in me to reinvent myself a lot," she explained, "to flip in and out of genres and styles and trends."
Adele says her main focus now is being a "mum" to her son, Angelo Konecki. "When I became a parent, I felt like I was truly living. I had a purpose, where before I didn’t," she said. "My main thing is Mum, then it’s me, then it’s work."
