Adele, winner of six 2012 Grammy awards and arguably this year’s it-girl, has graced the cover of Vogue’s March issue.
In her interview with Vogue’s Jonathan Van Meter, the singer discusses everything from her surgery to the latest man in her life, 37-year-old Simon Konecki.
“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,” she told Van Meter.
While her current love life is great, she said, she discussed her past boyfriend, a man 10 years older her senior, whom she keeps anonymous, but who inspired her album, 21: “If I hadn’t met him, I think I’d still be that little girl I was when I was eighteen. And the best thing is, I now know what I want for myself and from someone else. I didn’t know what I wanted before.”
Her songs about love are ones that everyone can relate to: “When I sing ‘Someone Like You,’ I know that every single person in the room will be able to relate to it. That’s where that emotional connection comes from. I have sympathy for myself, I have sympathy for them, they have sympathy for me, and I know that we are all there knowing exactly how each other feels. It’s like a big pact. You can just feel it. You can slice it.”
Her relatable music and vocal talent are likely why Adele received such a strong standing ovation from her musical peers at this year’s Grammy Awards.
