Adele covers TIME
Singer Adele has covered the December 28 – January 4 issue of TIME magazine, talking to the magazine about her new album, 25.
Adele, whose album sold a record smashing 3.38 million copies in its first week in the United States, described it as “ridiculous.”
“I’m not even from America,” she said. “Maybe they think I’m related to the Queen. Americans are obsessed with the royal family.”
On why her music resonated with so many people, she said: “The fact that I’m not shy or embarrassed to be falling apart. Everyone falls apart, I think. A lot of people try to be brave and not shed a tear. Sometimes when you know someone else feels as s— as you do, or approaches things in a certain way just like you do, it makes you feel better about yourself. Even though my music is melancholy, there’s also joy in that. I hope I do bring joy to people’s lives, and not just sadness, but I think there’s there’s a comfort in it. But I honestly don’t know. If I knew, I would bottle it, and sell it to everyone else.”
