Adele was the cover girl for Elle's annual Women in Music issue, which included tributes from many industry greats including Barbra Streisand and Katy Perry. Adele kept tight-lipped on her 6-month-old son Angelo (as she often does) but did open up about her new album.

On her third album:

“I’m writing the songs now, and then I’ll want to rehearse them for a while. As much as I love my first album, there are still things that I wish I had done differently. So I don’t want to rush anything. You’re only as good as your last record, so if I put out something that’s shit, nobody’s going to buy it. If it’s crap, people will be like, “Why was she ever such a big deal?” So I have to take my time. I mean, if it takes me three years, I imagine people will start getting a bit nervy… but I’ll do my best to avoid that.”

On the high point in her career:

“Winning the Grammys! To be nominated for a Grammy would have been a highlight, but winning just blew my mind.”

Britney Spears writes a “love letter“ to Adele for Elle:

“Her voice is just not like any other voice out there. It draws the emotion out of you. A lot of her songs kind of put me in a trance. We were both at the VMAs, and they were like, ‘Do you want to meet Adele?’ And I was like, ‘Um, yes!’ She was even better than I imagined, in person — she’s so incredibly down-to-earth. You can tell she hasn’t gotten caught up in that pop music machine thing — which is easy to get caught in — and she hasn’t just listened to what executives were telling her to do. All of her stuff is hers, and that’s really amazing.”
