Adele Graces Vogue

Wasn’t much worth watching on last night’s Grammy Awards, save for Jennifer Hudson’s way too short Whitney Houston tribute. And we’re not even going to get into the concluding train wreck.

Thank goodness for Adele. Her graciousness and personality were refreshing. She walked away with six awards – in every category for which she was nominated, and graced the stage in a big way since her surgery.

Now she graces the cover of Vogue’s March Power issue, available on newsstands February 21st. In her interview, she talks about her meteoric rise, her throat problems, and dealing with fame.

Here’s a nugget:

“I think I just needed to be silenced. And when you are silent, everyone else around you is silent. So the noise in my life just stopped. It was like I was floating in the sea for three weeks. It was brilliant. It was my body telling me to fix me. I had so much time to kind of go over things and get over things, which is amazing. I think if I hadn’t had my voice trouble, I would never have broached those subjects with myself. Now I just feel really at peace. And really proud of myself. I’ve never fully appreciated the things that I’ve achieved until now. In fact, my entire life has changed in the last ten weeks. I’ve never been so happy, and I love it.”
