UK singer-superstar Adele covers the May 2013 issue of Elle US for their Women In Music issue, which also features Alicia Keys and Rita Ora.
The music issue includes a tribute to Adele and the thoughts of fellow musicians – including Katy Perry, Britney Spears, John Mayer and legend Barbra Streisand – on her meteoric rise to fame.
Adele talks to Elle about taking her time with her third album, the highest point of her career, the worst show she ever performed and the song which always gets her on the dance floor.
On her third album: “I’m writing the songs now, and then I’ll want to rehearse them for a while. As much as I love my first album, there are still things that I wish I had done differently. So I don’t want to rush anything. You’re only as good as your last record, so if I put out something that’s shit, nobody’s going to buy it. If it’s crap, people will be like, “Why was she ever such a big deal?” So I have to take my time. I mean, if it takes me three years, I imagine people will start getting a bit nervy… but I’ll do my best to avoid that.”
