Q: You’re very much in control of your career and it’s not an easy thing to do. How did you learn to do that?
Adele: It’s my music. And I’m the artist. So why someone in a boardroom who’s never written a record in their life should be making decisions for me? No. We’re the artists and we should be allowed to decide in every aspect. And I understand that it’s only when you get to a certain level that you really get to be in control but I think it’s a shame that you have to be at a certain level because people that are unknown, they are making records, it’s their music and the decisions of how they’re portrayed and how they’re to come across and how they look is no one else’s business.
