Adele is just full of surprises.

While you might think there isn't much about the singer's inner self that hasn't already been shared with fans courtesy of her deeply personal songs, well, one glimpse of the revelations from a new (unauthorized) biography, the practically titled Adele: The Biography, out this week, proves that theory wrong.

So what have we learned about the Brit belter? How about she had a brief foray into online dating, and harbors a reluctant royal crush on Prince Harry. And that's just for starters. Hey, those gingers have got to stick together.

"I'm after Prince Harry," author Chas Newkey-Burden quotes the singer saying in an excerpt obtained by USA Today. "I know I said I wouldn't go out with a ginger, but it's Prince Harry! I'd be a real duchess then."

But, Harry will be pleased to know, she doesn't just want him for his title.

"I'd love a night out with him, he seems like he'd be a right laugh."

These disclosures, which seem to predate 21's release and thus her currently happily loved-up relationship with baby daddy Simon Konecki, also include the admission that following her infamous album-inspiring breakup, she decided to try her hand at Internet matchmaking. Which seemed to have hit a snag straight out of the gate.

"I just signed up for eHarmony," she said. "I can't put a photo of myself, so I don't get any emails!" Oops.

Meanwhile, Adele is quoted about her weight, and having to deal with those (both famous and not—ahem, Lady Gaga) quick to criticize her figure.

"I read a comment on YouTube that I thought would upset me, 'Test pilot for pies'—but I've always been a size 14-16 and been fine with it," she recalled. "I would only lose weight if it affected my health or sex life, which it doesn't."

Ah. There's that TMI we know and love.
