Most musicians have a good luck charm or a pre-show ritual they do to guarantee they'll have a good performance. But for Adele, her good luck charm is vomit. Oh how I wish I were joking.
Adele admits she has to "puke" before every show.
"I puke quite a lot before going on stage. But the pre-show puke guarantees a great performance!" Adele tells Britain's Vogue magazine.
"But then, I sh-t myself before everything. The bigger the freak-out, the more I enjoy the show!" Adele ads.
Let me explain British slang for a moment, when Adele says "I sh-t myself before everything" it does not mean that she takes a dump in her pants. I've seen enough of the Harry Potter films to know that "I sh-t myself" means "I freak out!" Hey look, you learned something new today.
However, this is far less serious that what she told Rolling Stone earlier this summer about her intense pre-show jitters, "I'm scared of audiences," she said, "One show in Amsterdam I was so nervous I escaped out the fire exit. Once in Brussels I projectile vomited on someone. I just gotta bear it. But I don't like touring. I have anxiety attacks a lot."
And you thought she bared her soul in her music. TMI Adele, TMI!
Adele also tells British Vogue that no man can treat her as well as she treats herself and says that she finds romance "distracting."
"I do get massively distracted when I've got someone in my life, which I can't afford to do right now. Besides, no one treats me as well as I do."
Listen up, men of the world, Adele doesn't have time to date you. She's got a show to do and a lot of puking to catch up on. Please don't distract her.
Though the single gal does talk about finding love and having babies, "Like, if I have children, I want five boys. Boys love their mothers whereas girls can be so mean to each other," she says, "I've always got on better with boys. Most of my friends are boys."
The singer also opened up about her body insecurities, but says she isn't going to obsess over weight issues.
"I enjoy being me, I always have done. I've seen people where it rules their lives, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down and I don't want that in my life. I have body insecurities, of course, but I don't hang out with anyone who points them out to me."
Adele also expressed similar sentiments in the Rolling Stone article, "My life is full of drama and I won't have time to worry about something as petty as what I look like. I don't like going to the gym. I like eating fine foods and drinking nice wine. Even if I had a really good figure, I don't think I'd get my t-ts and ass out for no one," she told the mag.
