Adele’s presence is growing brighter by the day. The British chanteuse is gracing the October issue of Vogue UK and while looking nothing short of radiant while candidly discussing her pre-performance bathroom runs, not being a victim of the music industry’s “standards,” why she’s single and more. 

On getting pre-show jitters:
“I puke quite a lot before going on stage. Though never actually on stage. But then, I sh*t myself before everything … the bigger the freak-out, the more I enjoy the show!”

On the entertainment industry’s weight obsession:
“I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down. And I don’t want that in my life. I have insecurities, of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me.”

On being single:
“I do get massively distracted when I’ve got someone in my life, which I can’t afford to do right now. Besides, no one treats me as well as I do.”

On wanting sons, rather than daughters:
“I’ve always got on better with boys. Most of my friends are boys. Like, if I ever have children, I want five boys. Boys love their mothers whereas girls can be so mean to each other.”
