"I am quite loud and bolshie," Adele tells Vogue magazine in their March 2012 issue. "I'm a big personality. I walk into a room, big and tall and loud."
Inside the magazine's feature on the Grammy winner, she talks about her throat troubles, her gripes with fame and being in love.
"I've been singing properly every day since I was about fifteen or sixteen," she said, "and I have never had any problems with my voice, ever. I've had a sore throat here and there, had a cold and sung through it, but that day it just went while I was onstage in Paris during a radio show. It was literally like someone had pulled a curtain over it."
She went on to note how her surgery helped her fully appreciate everything that she has accomplished over the last year. "I think I just needed to be silenced. And when you are silent, everyone else around you is silent. So the noise in my life just stopped. It was like I was floating in the sea for three weeks. It was brilliant. It was my body telling me to fix me. I had so much time to kind of go over things and get over things, which is amazing. I think if I hadn’t had my voice trouble, I would never have broached those subjects with myself. Now I just feel really at peace. And really proud of myself. I’ve never fully appreciated the things that I’ve achieved until now. In fact, my entire life has changed in the last ten weeks. I’ve never been so happy, and I love it."
I'm sure the new man in her life Simon Konecki has a little something to do with that as well. "He's wonderful," Adele gushes. "And he's proud of me, but he don't care about what I do or what other people think. He looks after me. I don't think I would have gotten through the recovery for my surgery if it hadn't been for him."
When the interviewer mentions that he's heard the notion it would take a brave man to date her again, Adele playfully responded, "Come on! I'm wifey material! I'm great. No one's got to be brave. It's not like, 'You fuck me over and I’m going to write a record and make you the most hated man in the world.' I am never writing a breakup record again, by the way. I'm done with being a bitter witch."
However, when it comes to the duties of fame, Adele is not exactly the poster child for red carpet events (who can blame her?). "I hate the red carpet. I don’t feel insecure, I just feel like, Oh, I don’t want to do this. I literally get a stomach cramp. At the VMA’s last year I felt really out of my comfort zone because there were so many superstars there. But that’s been the case from day one. I never feel like, Oh, yeah, I should be here. And I was missing my best friend’s hen night. So I was a bit bitter that I wasn’t there, to be perfectly honest."
How about her future plans? Adele responded, "I am fucking off for four or five years. If I am constantly working, my relationships fail. So at least now I can have enough time to write a happy record. And be in love and be happy. And then I don’t know what I'll do. Get married. Have some kids. Plant a nice vegetable patch."
