Adele Talks ’25,’ Streaming Services & Beyonce In ‘TIME’ Magazine
Adele is currently on top of the world as the biggest pop star du jour, and she is now opening about her views on the massive 25 success. The singer is currently the cover star of TIME magazine, and she discusses the latest album, streaming services and Beyonce.
Not placing 25 on Spotify played a major role in boosting the sales of the album, as Adele feels “music should be an event” and that she’s proud of the decision. “I don’t use streaming. I buy my music. I download it, and I buy a physical [copy] just to make up for the fact that someone else somewhere isn’t,” she states in TIME.
The “When We Were Young” starlet continues, “It’s a bit disposable, streaming. I know that streaming music is the future, but it’s not the only way to consume music. I can’t pledge allegiance to something that I don’t know how I feel about yet.” Adele then pipes up about her three-year-old son Angelo: “I can’t wait to know who his best friends are going to be, who his girlfriend or his boyfriend is going to be or what movies he likes…whatever my kid wants to do or be I will always support him no matter what.”
She also chatted about the rumor about turning down a duet from fellow pop queen Beyonce. “Whoever started that rumor must have been having a laugh because anyone who knows me knows that my main priority in life outside of my child is Beyonce. I really wanted to do a duet on this album,” Adele revealed. “I spoke to someone about it who I wanted to do it with, and we got on like a house on fire, and then we just couldn’t logistically really get it to work. I can’t say who it is because I want to do it in the future. That’s the only reason. It wasn’t Beyonce!”
