The Hello hitmaker confessed that her 100lbs weight loss over two years was caused by anxiety, as she posed for the UK and US editions of the magazine. The star, 33, said: “It was because of my anxiety. Working out, I would just feel better. “It was never about losing weight, it was always about becoming strong and giving myself as much time every day without my phone. “I got quite addicted to it. I work out two or three times a day.”
The Tottenham-born singer, who is mother to eight-year-old Angelo, candidly described how she left her charity chief executive husband Simon Konecki, 47, because the marriage “wasn’t right for [her] anymore”.
Adele split from Simon in April 2019 and their divorce was finalised in March this year.
She explained: “I didn’t want to end up like a lot of other people I knew. I wasn’t miserable miserable, but I would have been miserable had I not put myself first.
“But, yeah, nothing bad happened or anything like that.”
The Grammy-award winner used the interview to confirm she is dating US sports agent Rich Paul, 39.
She said he is more comfortable with her fame than previous boyfriends, explaining: “They’d find it stressful being out or seen with me…whereas he’s not frazzled by it at all. It feels like it’s consistent and considerate enough that I don’t care who knows.
“He’s great. He’s so ******* funny. He’s so smart, you know.”
She also revealed that her next album is dedicated to her son, telling British Vogue: “I just felt like I wanted to explain to him, when he’s in his 20s or 30s, who I am and why I voluntarily chose to dismantle his entire life in the pursuit of my own happiness.
“It made him really unhappy sometimes. And that’s a real wound for me that I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to heal.”
Glamorous Adele looked incredible as she modeled a black satin corset dress and a yellow corset-styled couture Vivienne Westwood gown, among other outfits, for the magazine.
Comic Alan Carr, a close friend of the singer, has been treated to a preview of her new album – rumoured to be titled 30 – ahead of its upcoming release.
He said listening to the tracks is “like being reunited with an old friend”.
Alan, 45, said: “I have heard the songs. It’s a wonderful album.”
Adele’s debut album 19 was released in 2008 and since then the singer has sold more than 55 million albums worldwide.
