Even though she has taken some time off this past year to focus on being a first-time mum, Adele continues to dominate the music industry. This time, she is featured on the May 2013 cover of Elle magazine.
Adele is representing Elle’s Women in Music issue. Inside, the powerhouse vocalist received some kind words from pop princess Britney Spears. It’s obvious the “Hit Me Baby, One More Time” is a big fan of the British songstress.
In an open letter printed in the special issue, Spears wrote, “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.”
That’s high praise from someone who knows a thing or two about the pop music industry. Read more in the May 2013 Women in Music issue of Elle, available now.
