• Adele looks absolutely stunning on Vogue's March cover.
• She opens up about motherhood and protecting her son's privacy.
• The songstress reveals she "didn't miss being in the spotlight."
The goddess that is Adele graces the cover of Vogue's March 2016 issue and opens up about everything from motherhood to her career hiatus to being inspired by the Spice Girls.
Adele's last appeared on the cover of Vogue for the March 2012 issue, a big moment for her following the success of "21." According to the singer, her son Angelo was conceived “the day the last Vogue cover came out!”
Fast forward four years and the superstar is back on the cover with another multi-platinum album under her belt with "25" and a tour coming up.
“My main thing is Mum, then it’s me, then it’s work,” she told the magazine of her life's focus. “I think I had to take the right amount of time off to let people miss me.
The 27-year-old had a lot more to say in her wide-ranging cover story interview.
She feels comfortable in her skin now more than ever.
“I was just shocked that all of a sudden I was 25! But actually I like myself more than ever. I feel so comfortable in my own skin. I really like how I look, I like who I am, I like everyone that I surround myself with. Obviously I have insecurities, but they don’t hold me back.”
The four-year hiatus could've been longer.
“I didn’t miss being in the spotlight, but I really missed that side of myself. I was happy to be lost in the wilderness for a while, but I was a bit frightened that I was never going to get back. I suppose there was lots riding on what to follow '21' up with. Once ‘Hello’ came out, I felt like I’d got nothing to prove. I’m just going to sing now because I want to, and I’ll make records when I want to and not because someone is forcing me to do it. Not that anyone ever has. I’d fire them if they tried!”
Privacy is key for raising her family.
“We need to have some privacy. I think it’s really hard being a famous person’s child. What if he wants to smoke weed or drink underage, or what if he’s gay and doesn’t want to tell me, and then he’s photographed and that’s how I find out?”
Girl Power. Always.
“People always think I joke about this, but the Spice Girls blew up when I was seven. And seeing them coming from a humble background—there was hope in it. It was really a massive part of my life when the whole Girl Power thing happened.”
