The resurrected Observer Music Magazine released its first issue, in which Adele served as cover model, interview subject and guest editor. In the interview, she elaborates on what she often says about fame– that she’s afraid of it.
“It’s very easy to give in to being famous. 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,” she says. Adele then goes on to say that there were times she almost gave in to the temptations of using fame to get out of doing things like laundry. “So I told myself I’d better abseil down. And go and do my fucking laundry.”
Adele also reveals she sometimes chooses not to go to some events because she doesn’t want to steal the spotlight. The public may hear Adele’s name in the media, but the singer does all she can to keep the names of both her boyfriend and son out of the press. She often chooses “my man” or “my son” as alternatives.

“25” will be released this Friday, November 20th.
