As photographed by Annie Leibovitz, Adele graces the cover of the March 2016 issue of 'Vogue' magazine, chatting about her love for the Spice Girls and her son, Angelo.
On her time off from music: "I didn't miss being in the spotlight, but I really missed that side of myself. I was happy to be lost in the wilderness for a while, but I was a bit frightened that I was never going to get back. I suppose there was lots riding on what to follow 21 up with. Once 'Hello' came out, I felt like I'd got nothing to prove. I'm just going to sing now because I want to, and I'll make records when I want to and not because someone is forcing me to do it. Not that anyone ever has. I'd fire them if they tried!"
On co-writing with Bruno Mars: "I've always been a really big fan of Bruno,” says Adele, “but when we worked together he was beyond. He can do anything, literally singing the best vocals you've ever heard live in your life while he is playing a drum or a bass or doing some mad percussion riff. I think he definitely will be the biggest, biggest, biggest artist in the world."
On her love for the Spice Girls: "People always think I joke about this, but the Spice Girls blew up when I was seven. And seeing them coming from a humble background—there was hope in it. It was really a massive part of my life when the whole Girl Power thing happened."
