Adele, who broke records with her latest album, 25, selling over 3.38 million copies in US alone, has sat down for an interview with Time Magazine’s Sam Lanskya.
She opened up about her views in the industry and motherhood. She also despises the industry term, “brand,” which she feels demeans her personality as an artist.
Adele thinks that her success is mainly because she is not afraid to let other people know she also “falls apart.”
“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. ”
She thinks people relate to her feelings, especially her songs.

When talking about how motherhood changed her life, she admitted that only the other day, she found doing all these things challenging with having a kid around. Adele’s three-year-old son gets most of her spare time, she said.
However, at the end, she realized it’s her son, Angelo, who keeps her cool and calm most of the time.
“He makes me so proud of myself, and he makes me like myself so much. And I’ve always liked myself. I’ve never not liked myself. I don’t have hangups like that.”
She wants her son to be normal, “unlike those dickheads” who don’t know a thing or two about household chores and being normal.
