Make-up free Adele opens up in Rolling Stone

Adele has ditched her normally super-glam appearance for the cover of Rolling Stone​.

Instead the British songstress has gone completely makeup-free with her hair wet and casually pushed back.

But it’s not just her look that’s different, the 27-year-old has also quit smoking and moved on from her wild party days.


“I absolutely loved it (smoking), but it’s not that f…ing cool when I’m dying from a smoking-related illness and my kid is, like, devastated,” she said.

“I used to be able to drink anyone under the table and still be able to put on an all-right show. But with kids, hangovers are torture. They just know. They pick up on it and just go for you.”

As for why she took a break from the music industry, Adele said fame scares her.

“My career’s not my life … it’s my hobby,” she said.

“People think I hate being famous. And I don’t. I’m really frightened of it. I think it’s really toxic, and I think it’s really easy to be dragged into it.”

The singer also opened up about her son Angelo, and confirmed she and former investment banker boyfriend are still together.

“We haven’t broken up. We’ve never broken up. We’ve been together,” she said. “We just haven’t felt the need to get married. We’ve got a kid together. I feel like that’s a big enough commitment.”
