With Adele’s new album ’25’, landing its fourth straight week on top of the Billboard charts, the singer appears in the December 28, 2015, cover story from Time Magazine. The singer shows off her signature cat eye while wearing a red coatigan in the images lensed by Erik Madigan Heck.
In her interview, she talks about overexposed artists. Adele starts, “I’m not throwing shade at anybody…but when you have a six-month build up, don’t expect me to be there the day your album comes out, because I’m bored. It doesn’t matter how amazing it is. You put seven songs out. I’ve heard the album. I’ve heard everything you want to say about it. I’ve heard it all over radio. Don’t expect me to not lose interest before it’s even happened.”
She also talked about cutting out social media when making the record, saying bluntly. “How am I supposed to write a real record if I’m waiting for half a million likes on a f—ing photo? That ain’t real.”
