Adele: Cosmopolitan’s Cancer-Free Cover Girl

Singer Adele gets glam on the year end issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine, on newsstands Nov. 8. In a chat with the femme-friendly mag, the British songbird talks record deals, ex-boyfriends (Yep, “Rolling in the Deep” was inspired by one…), and her all-time favorite singers.

“My favorite singers are Etta James and Aretha Franklin. If you were to look up the word singer in the dictionary you’d see their names. Not mine.”

And in other Adele dish: When it was reported last week that Adele would have to undergo throat surgery after being sidelined in recent months by strained vocal cords, some of her fans feared the worst and began to speculate that she had cancer. They even started a #PrayForAdele hashtag on Twitter! A representative for the “Someone Like You” singer shot down those rumors immediately, insisting the 23-year-old soul phenom is not undergoing cancer treatment.

“We would like to reiterate that Adele is to undergo surgery for a hemorrhaged vocal chord. All reports regarding any other condition are 100 percent false.”
