Adele Opens Up About Motherhood and Fearing Fame

(Radio.com) Since giving birth to her son, Adele has learned just what it takes to continue writing music, performing and raising a child. She recently spoke with i-D for their Here and Now issue, where she opened up about motherhood and her different, "low-key" approach to fame.

Adele rarely discusses her personal life in much detail, but she did touch on motherhood, albeit briefly, admitting, 'It's f-- hard. I thought it would be easy. 'Everyone f-- does it, how hard can it be?' Ohhhhh… I had no idea. It is hard but it's phenomenal. It's the greatest thing I ever did. It used to be that my own world revolved around me, but now it has to revolve around him."

In the face of her massive successes, she's managed to stay grounded. If anything, fame is something she continues to be wary of because of how much it can change a person. "I'm just frightened of it, you know?" she says. "Frightened of it destroying me and it ruining me, and me getting lost and turning into some of the people that I love with my whole musical heart. I get frightened. And I get frightened for the people that I love, feeling like they've lost me.

"It's basically a bit like Stars In Their Eyes when you go into the smoke and you come out as someone else. I get worried of them looking at me going into the smoke and never coming out. It's a bit toxic, fame. I've got enough toxins in me body, I don't need any of that!" Read her views on social media here.
