Adele: I don't have time to worry about weight

As image-driven as the entertainment business can be, Brit singer Adele says in the new issue of Rolling Stone that she'd rather keep the attention on her music.

While she has no problem with other artists showing off their style or physique, you won’t find the “Rolling in the Deep” songstress stripping down anytime soon.

"I love seeing Lady Gaga's boobs and bum. I love seeing Katy Perry's boobs and bum. Love it,” Adele says. “But that's not what my music is about. I don't make music for eyes. I make music for ears."

Besides, she says, focusing on her looks or fluctuating weight isn't really her thing, anyway.

"My life is full of drama and I won't have time to worry about something as petty as what I look like," the 22-year-old tells Rolling Stone. "I don't like going to the gym. I like eating fine foods and drinking nice wine. Even if I had a really good figure, I don't think I'd get my [T&A] out for no one."

She will be getting her, um, “A” out on tour this summer, even though the idea of performing still makes her sick with stage fright.

"I'm scared of audiences," she admits. "One show in Amsterdam I was so nervous I escaped out the fire exit. I've thrown up a couple of times. Once in Brussels I projectile vomited on someone. I just gotta bear it. But I don't like touring. I have anxiety attacks a lot."

Read the full interview with Adele in Rolling Stone when the issue hits newsstands on April 15.

    She's a fat slob. I can't stand the sight of her. Apparently the pig can get knocked up by married men..

    I wonder if any of the men commenting on here are overweight? Probably. I wonder how many of you have fat wives or girlfriends? Probably quite a few.

    Adele is beautiful and so his her voice. She should maintain a healthy weight so that she can be healthy NOT so that you approve of her appearance.

    This is why all of you haters will continue watching "America's got talent", 'cause you don't have ears, you just have dead eyes and your only desire is to see pathetic stereotypes. Close yourselves into the gym and let talented artists like Adele make some good music for the rest of us.

      She's fat, might be an OK singer, but to say she has no time to watch her weight is BS. Gwen Stefani , not the singer big ole Adele might be, but certainly much more busy than the sloth Adele.

    Adele is WAY too fat.... she has no respect for her body and I have no respect for her. How does she wash between all the folds?? She doesn't! And that's why Fat chicks just really smell!!!

    I totally AGREE! People on here really need to know what real talent...hell check her out on youtube she is gorgeous. Oh I'm sorry you have to be 1 size up from anorexic to be beautiful and of course you guys don't know who she is because I guarantee you think Rihanna, Brittany Spears, and Lady Gaga are true artists. Huh I swear I should of been born in the 80's for goodness sake smdh!

    Zinger... because she has time to eat?? Good grief.

    Adele is definitely husky particularly in comparison to what our society seems to believe that celebrities need to look like (even celebrities who aren't supposed to be celebrities because of their looks – like singers, etc.).

    Her talent and beauty is totally undeniable. I think the hilarity is that there seems to be so much conversation about her weight. Are WE truly that shallow? We can't appreciateor (in reflection of the majority of comments here) even acknowledge talent without it being part of a Playboy model?

    How about the audience grows up. If we don't we sure don't deserve to even have access to talent like this.

    I saw her live when her first CD was just released.. Was nice small club . What amazed me she was only 19 at that time and the audience was average mid 30's . She totally captavated everyone . To hear her sing live with no autotunes, lipsynching or any of that false manufacted music was truly a night i will never forget. I knew and the audience knew we were witnessing a true future star.

    Adele says she has no time to worry about her weight,..... but she has plenty of time to eat to much. kind of funny if you think about it.

    I just listened to some of her music and I must say that she is good. She is also rather heavy, but she is so pretty. I hope she makes copious amounts of money and keeps making music.

      That is a stylized and photoshopped cover shot. It does't look much like the real person. I think Adele is lovely, as well as gifted with a gorgeous voice. She has been quite large at times during her performing career, which is why the subject of weight came up. She tends to be plump even when her weight is down, but that's part of her look.

    I have been a fan of Adele's ever since her first album and the girl is talented. She doesn't need to be a size 0 and naked in pictures– I mean, fine if others do it, but she is doing well without all of that. She makes quality music and she seems to have a cool personality. If she wants to lose weight, she will–until such time, it's no one's business.
