i'm sarah. welcome to the fluf.

the essential adele

First & foremost, if you have not seen this yet you are doing something wrong.
In addition to being one of the best singer/songwriters of this generation/all time, Adele is just an all-around badass.

LOOK at how she dresses.

makes me want to wing my eyeliner and pouf my hair and dress like a class act in an A-line dress every day.

LOOK at how she gives no fucks.

I don't make music for eyes. I make music for ears.

"I don't write songs about a specific, elusive thing. I write about love, and everyone knows what it is like to have your heart broken."

I like looking nice, but I always put comfort over fashion. I don't find thin girls attractive; be happy and healthy. I've never had a problem with the way I look. I'd rather have lunch with my friends than go to a gym.

"Even if I did have, you know, a 'Sports Illustrated' body, I'd still wear elegant clothes."

I was about to meet Beyoncé, and I had a full-blown anxiety attack. Then she popped in looking gorgeous, and said, 'You're amazing! When I listen to you I feel like I'm listening to God.'

"There will be no new music until it's good enough and until I'm ready."

I just want to make music, I don't want people to talk about me. All I've ever wanted to do was sing. 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.

"I think it's shameful when you sell out. It depends what kind of artist you wanna be, but I don't want my name anywhere near another brand."

I can't believe I did a peace sign on TV - like Ringo Starr!

"If I am constantly working, my relationships fail. So at least now I can have enough time to write a happy record. And be in love and be happy. And then I don't know what I'll do. Get married. Have some kids. Plant a nice vegetable patch."

In five years' time I'd like to be a mum. I want to settle down and have a family, definitely sooner rather than later. I'd like to have finished my second album too, maybe even my third. I'd like a sound that sticks around that other people are inspired by and that people know is me.
