5 Things We Learned From Adele's First Interview In 3 Years

adele says hello

Hello, it's me. 

Hello enchantress Adele recently sat with i-D Magazine and gave her first interview in three years.

Here, the five most exciting facts we learned about the former Outcover girl:

She wanted to be a heart surgeon.

When Adele was 10, her grandfather died. Her grief was so immense that she decided at that age that she wanted to be a heart surgeon so she could "fix people's hearts." Adele started biology classes the next year. Nevertheless, the star gave up on it when she discovered "fun -- and boys."

She walks to her local shops and buys her own notebooks -- a tradition she's kept for every album she's released.

"I do it every album. I buy a new pad, sniff it -- 'cause smell is important -- and then I get a big, fat sharpie and write my age on the front page. 25 has five exclamation marks after it 'cause I was like, 'How the fuck did that happen?!' 21 to 25."

Her new record, 25, is not a sequel to her 30-million record selling album, 21.

"I was very conscious not to make 21 again. I definitely wasn't going to write a heartbreak record 'cause I'm not heartbroken, but I probably won't be able to better the one I did, so what's the point? Bit cliche, innit?" she says. "Also, how I felt when I wrote 21, it ain't worth feeling like that again." How did she feel? "I was very sad and very lonely. Regardless of being a mum or a girlfriend, I didn't want to feel like that again"

Adele's Hello music video director Xavier Dolan made her act, and she loved it.

"He said I was quite good. I had to cry and everything. You know what, I feel like a bit of a cunt after for all these years I'd never act, because I really enjoyed it."

She sobbed upon meeting Stevie Nicks after a Fleetwood Mac show at the O2 arena.

"I was sobbing all over her, oh my God. I don't really like crying in front of famous people because it's awkward and it can make them feel really uncomfortable. But I couldn't contain myself."
