Adele In Rolling Stone: 'Hello' Singer Slams Damon Albarn, Talks Feminism And Body Image As She Covers Magazine


Adele has hit back at Damon Albarn, after he criticised her in the press.


The pair collaborated together on music for Adele’s forthcoming album, ‘25’, though none of the material they worked on made the final tracklisting.

He later criticised Adele in a newspaper interview, calling her “insecure” and her new material “middle of the road”, which she has now responded to.

Opening up about working with the Blur frontman in the latest issue of Rolling Stone, she admitted: “It ended up being one of those 'don't meet your idol' moments.

“And the saddest thing was that I was such a big Blur fan growing up. But it was sad, and I regret hanging out with him.”


During the interview, Adele also spoke about the prominence of feminism in recent pop culture, revealing she identifies as a feminist, and admitted she feels she’s often asked sexist questions just because she’s a woman.

“Sometimes I'm curious to know if I would have been as successful if I wasn't plus-size. I think I remind everyone of themselves.

“Not saying everyone is my size, but it's relatable because I'm not perfect, and I think a lot of people are portrayed as perfect, unreachable and untouchable.”
