Everyone’s favourite English-Welch songstress, Adele, is showing love to the gay community and covering the June issue of Out magazine.
Lensed by photographer Perry Ogden, Adele grace the cover of Out with her mighty British sass. The voluptuous soul singer with her big eyes popping out and sporting lustrous ruby red lips is captured in a fierce head-and-shoulder shot on the magazine cover.
Here are her photos and excerpts in the magazine:

The 23-year-old shows off her beautiful brown hair and gorgeous skin. Adele explains to the magazine where her extraordinary writing skills come from: “I don’t know if it’s because I’m an only child, but I was never, ever good at saying how I felt about things. From the age of about 5, if I was told off for not sharing, or I didn’t tidy my room, or I spoke back to my mom, I’d always write a note as my apology”
Adele gets cocky with a Greek art statue. The “Rolling In The Deep” singer, who has capitalized on her past relationship failures, tells Out that she would have given up everything to make her relationship work with the ex that’s behind the inspiration on “21”.
“I don’t think I’ll ever forgive myself for not making my relationship with my ex on 21 work, because he’s the love of my life (adding that she would have been willing to give up everything for him) Well, I would still be singing in the shower, of course, but yeah — my career, my friendships, my hobbies. I would have given up trying to be the best”, Adele points out to Out. “He made me really weak, but at the same time really fucking fearless, so I managed to channel that. I don’t know if I’ll ever beat this album in terms of how people connect to it”
The new queen of soul tells the magazine: “I always say I’m a singing lady, rather than a singer. Singer is a big word for me. My interpretation of a singer is Etta James and Carole King and Aretha Franklin”
Adele recalls the moment she won her Grammy for ‘Best New Artist’ in 2009, saying: “I had just come back from the toilet, so my Spanx weren’t even all the way up. Then I won Best New Artist, and it was like time slowed down, and I was hovering over myself, pissing myself laughing. It was amazing”
Here is what Adele had to say on being a role model: “I get a lot of mail from people who tell me that I make them really happy to be themselves, and really comfortable with who they are, which I love. I would hate it if someone was, like, ‘I wish I was you’ because I’m as insecure about myself as the next person”
Despite her sophomore album “21” selling like hot cakes and breaking all sorts of records, Adele hold that her recent found success hasn’t gone to her head: “I’ve met people I admire, and people I don’t admire who are completely affected by their success, and I fucking hate them. There’s so many people who believe their own hype and treat people like shit, and if I was ever like that I would absolutely stop doing what I’m doing for a while and go and find myself again. I find it grotesque when people change because of it, but maybe it’s because they’re not as good at keeping in contact with the people who love them for a reason”
The “Someone Like You” singer describes her music to Out: “My music’s not stylized — it’s not sold by image, or by my sexuality, or aloofness, or anything like that. I think it would be really bizarre if I started doing gimmicks and stunts — it wouldn’t suit my music”
