Adele Talks Fame on “Today”

Posted Thursday May 10, 2012 9:19 AM GMT

She’s one of the most beloved singers on the planet, and Adele is definitely experiencing a prolonged career high these days.

But the “Rolling in the Deep” songstress, who will perform on NBC’s ‘Adele Live in London’ next month, says she really doesn’t enjoy all the fame that came with her musical success.

Regarding the never-ending rumors she’s heard, Adele shared, "I was adopting an Ethiopian child … that’s not true. My house was haunted, that wasn’t true. God, there’s been so many (rumors).”

"I don’t want to be a celebrity … I don’t want to be in people’s faces, you know, constantly on covers of magazine that I haven’t even known I’m on."

However, she was able to stroll through London recently without being pegged. "I was a bit worried. I was in my pajamas. I was in color. I’m always in black. I threw pumps on, this massive green coat and then little pink pumps. Nobody recognized me. A couple looked round but they were like, 'No, she’s in color.' And what would she be doing walking through a packed Trafalgar Square on a Saturday?"

She added,"I just wanna make music. I don’t want anyone chatting about me, really. I still hope I have a little bit of clout in 10 years. All I’ve ever wanted to do is sing."
