Adele, Vogue Cover


Scoring total Grammy domination and the cover of Vogue all in the same weekend? Now that's a one-two punch.

Fresh from her six-for-six Grammy wins last night, Adele has turned covergirl, getting in touch with her inner fashionista by taking the March cover of Vogue.

During the interview, the bubbly personality's conversation ran the gamut as she dished on everything from her vocal scare to taking time off from singing, the public's biggest misconceptions about her, her surprising star crush, her even more surprising star nursemaid and which artist she's most inspired by.

Oh, and the fact that she's done with being a "bitter witch."

First up: the storyline that's dominated the majority of her past few months—her surgery and lengthy recovery. Up until last year's hemorrghage, Adele said she had "never had any problems with my voice, ever."

Coincidentally enough, she wasn't alone.

"John Mayer had it done at the same time as I did, and he really helped me be chilled out about it," she told the mag, rattling off a list of other artists who've been there, lent support for that. "Roger Daltrey's had loads of stuff done; Steven Tyler reached out; Elton John."

And in a way, Adele said that the surgery came as something of a blessing in disguise to the self-described "loud and bolshie" singer.

"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 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...In fact, my entire life has changed in the last 10 weeks. I've never been so happy, and I love it."

Which is a point that apparently seems to be lost on her nevertheless adoring fans.

"People think that I'm f--king miserable. They are really surprised when they meet me that I'm chatty and bubbly and kind of quite carefree really. I'm the total opposite of my records."

And while her records have so far been rather angsty, Adele said she's not the devastated ex she may often come across as to potential suitors.

"Come on! I'm wifey material!" she said. "I'm great...I am never writing a breakup record again, by the way. I'm done with being a bitter witch."

And done with everything else for not quite as long.

"I am f--king 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."

Watch It's Complicated on endless repeat?

"I love Alec Baldwin," she noted. "Oh, my God, I've got the biggest crush on him in that film. He's so sexy."

And he's not the only A-lister who's earned her approval. Adele also had no qualms about openly gushing over Beyoncé.

"She's been a huge and constant part of my life as an artist since I was about 10 or 11. I love how all of her songs are about empowerment. Even when she's married and Jay-Z put a ring on it, she releases 'Single Ladies.' Go get yours. Go get what you deserve. I think she's really inspiring."

It's probably safe to say the feeling is mutual.
