(NOTE LANGUAGE) These days, it's perfectly acceptable for musicians, especially female ones, to be the "face" of a brand, whether it's a beverage, a line of clothing, cosmetics or a fragrance. But count Adele as one who refuses to be the "face" of anything, no matter how big the paycheck.
In the October issue of Vogue UK, she says, "I don't want to see me plastered everywhere. If they offered me 10 million pounds, I'd be, like, 'F*** off.'" Besides, she jokes, "If I was going to be the face of anything, it should be the face of full-fat [regular] Coke."
And speaking about her love for regular Coke, Adele says she's not bothered about the fact that she's much more voluptuous than your typical female pop star. "I enjoy being me; I always have done," she said. "I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, you know, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down. And I just don’t want that in my life." Adele insists her weight has "never been an issue," adding, "At least, I’ve never hung out with the sort of horrible people who make it an issue. I have insecurities of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me."
Vogue reports that the October issue with Adele on the cover has been one of its best-sellers, and Adele thinks so much of it that she won't autograph it unless she's got the proper writing instrument. A fan tells Vogue, "I went to see Adele [in London] last week, and someone threw the latest copy of Vogue up and she picked it up." The fan continued, "She said that she wouldn't sign it with the 'crap pen' they threw on [stage], and that she needed a Sharpie and would get one when she went off for encore, which she did and then signed it."
