After more than three years of pause after releasing her bond theme “Skyfall” in 2012, Adele will finally release her third studio album on the 20th of November óf this year. With her last studio album “21” selling more than 11 million copies, retailers estimate that the coming album, “25”, is likely to sell 1 million copies alone in its first week. We’ve already had the pleasure of listening to its lead single “Hello” that came out on the 22nd of October and sold a record- breaking 1.1 million downloads within seven days of release, not to mention the 252 million clicks it currently has on Youtube and are therefore curious what else is awaiting us!
Whom she wants in her squad, whose album SHE is waiting for and what she thinks about posing for the Playboy you will learn here. 8 Facts from Adele’s Rolling Stone Interview that you should be aware of:
- Hello is not about some long – lost ex! She’s actually addressing herself in the song, trying to reconnect with herself. And although the song sounds a bit morbid, it’s actually meant to be just from the other side of becoming an adult, making it out alive from your late teens, early twenties.
- She wants Rihanna in her squad (she pronounced the word in a comical American accent). “… maybe Rihanna can be in my squad! That would be really cool. Oh, God. She’s life itself, isn’t she? I love her.”
- She can’t wait for Frank Ocean to release his album. “It’s taking so […] long.[…] That sounds so stupid, coming from me, doesn’t it?” she said, referring to the fact that she’s been working on “25” for 2 years now.
- The singer still feels wrong amongst celebrities: “I always feel like I’m gonna get thrown out. Or it’s going to turn out to be some, like, hidden-camera show. Like somebody’s gonna send me back to Tottenham.”
- One song of “25” features Bruno Mars: they originally meant to do an uptempo song, but instead created the incredibly dramatic ballad “All I Ask”.
- She admits she doesn’t like the gym: according to the Rolling Stone, she’s cutting back on sugar and hitting the gym. “I’m not like skipping to the […] gym. I don’t enjoy it.” Thanks for the honesty!
- About posing for Playboy: “I’ve been asked ‘Would you do Playboy?’ so many […] times, it’s ridiculous. […] and is that because I’m a woman or because I’m fat?”
- Adele declares herself a feminist. “I believe that everyone should be treated the same, including race and sexuality.” She also remembers not being taken seriously when in business meetings full of men, experiencing an attitude of “what do you know?”.
