Adele: 'I never get spotted in public!'
Adele never gets recognised in public because she doesn’t go out in heels and fake eyelashes.
The British singer has earned a reputation for maintaining a low-profile when she isn’t working, and took a long break from the spotlight when her son Angelo was born in 2012. Although she is one of the biggest stars in the world, and is currently enjoying global success with her new album 25, Adele maintains she can still avoid paparazzi.
“I live a very ordinary life and I think most people are surprised by that,” she told Britain’s Heat magazine. “They don’t think it would be me when they spot me, so they don’t tweet about it or go, ‘Adele was here.’ I don’t go to museums with my kids, with ten pairs of lashes and high heels on. I do get recognised, but by the time they realise it’s me, I’m up the road.”
The singer-songwriter is thrilled with the reaction to her latest album and admits she was terrified her fans would have forgotten about her during her break from music. While her previous records 19 and 21 have won critical acclaim, Adele believes her current material is her best yet.
“There are songs on this record that I’m much prouder of than ones on my last or first record,” she smiled. “There’s a couple of tracks on there that I think are the best songs I’ve ever written… When We Were Young and A Million Years Ago.”
Having topped charts all over the world and won a string of awards during her career so far, it's all still a novelty for Adele. The 27-year-old star rarely has time to think about her success, but does appreciate reflecting on her achievements during personal moments.
“When I go for a poo and see all my awards, I think, ‘Wow, I did it good.’ That’s the truth,” Adele laughed.
