|Adele, from Hello video
The video had 27.7 million views in the first 24 hours, and in the first 5 days hit and surpassed 100 million views, making her Vevo platinum faster than any other artist. Ever.
I don’t think she has ever looked more beautiful. She has grown into her face exquisitely. And speaking of exquisite, her makeup in this video is just achingly beautiful. And perfect.
Adele is out there doing press for her new album, 25, which drops on November 20th. It is so refreshing to see how candid and real and ballsy she has remained despite the accolades and huge financial success, which rounds the interesting edges off of so many.
While most successful artists start to sound manufactured, she is her own person. I love it.
She also has perfected the balance of private life and public life, not feeling the need to be papped every 5 minutes, or keep up a big public profile. Which makes it exciting when she does have something to say.
In the world exclusive interview in iD Magazine, her first interview in 3 years, she is delightful and funny and irreverent, and reminds us of why we love her so much. (Read Adele’s iD interview HERE) Enjoy these gorgeous pictures of Adele, also from iD magazine.
