Adele is back in the limelight with the release of her new track “Hello” from upcoming album “25.” The singer is on a record-breaking streak ever since she dropped the sneak peek of “Hello.” Despite tasting success with all her albums, Adele recently confessed that she is still terrified of fame.

The “Rolling In The Deep” singer has appeared on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone in her no-makeup look and wet hair. The Grammy award winning singer has even shared some insights about her private life in an interview with the magazine. She confessed that she still feels out of the loop. “I feel like I don't know what's going on in the charts and in popular culture. I've not lost touch with, like, reality. Just with what's current." 

Adele, 27, is one of the very few artists who have managed to live a low-key life even after tasting success. Adele said that she has learnt a lesson from the tragic demise of Amy Winehouse.

"People think I hate being famous and I don't. I'm really frightened of it," she said. "I think it's really toxic, and I think it's really easy to be dragged into it. Watching Amy [Winehouse] deteriorate is one of the reasons I'm a bit frightened,” Adele said. “That level of attention is really frightening, especially if you don't live around all that showbiz stuff," She added.

Adele also opened up about the idea of having her own “squad,” during the interview. She told that it was only after the success of “21” that she got in touch with her old friends which are a part of her squad now. "I've heard about a squad. I wish my squad was all supermodels. We are, in our brains. I guess I have my own squad." She also showed interest in bringing pop queen Rihanna in her squad.

Speaking up against racism and sexism, the singer said, "I'm a feminist. I believe that everyone should be treated the same, including race and sexuality."

Adele also revealed that she took a lot of inspiration from Madonna's 1998 album “Ray of Light” and this helped her to bounce back after the birth of her son Angelo. Speaking about her baby boy, Adele said, “He's a little angel. All the things I really like about myself, he brings out in me, and he's the only person that tells me no. He completely rules me," she confessed. "He's the boss of me, and it's so funny for other people to watch, because I'm the boss of everything in my work life." 

Adele was all praise about her partner Simon Konecki but dismissed the probability of marrying Konecki in the near future. 

Adele’s “25” is slated to be released on Nov. 20.
