Delly from the Block: Adele on Vogue

Talk about a hot streak! After picking up six Grammy Awards on February 12, Adele has landed a fancy Vogue cover to go along with her new hardware.

The crooner—who, incidentally, calls herself "Delly from the Block"—looks utterly radiant (take that, Karl!) in the magazine's March issue as she rocks flowing waves, her signature cat's eye liner, and a plunging black lace top.

Inside, the Cockney girl models a black embroidered Oscar de la Renta top and black leather Fratelli Orsini gloves for photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott while opening up about her celebrity crush (Alec Baldwin!), favorite films (anything Al Pacino), and admiration for Beyoncé.

"She’s been a huge and constant part of my life as an artist since I was about 10 or 11,” Adele says of the pop star.

“I love how all of her songs are about empowerment. Even when she’s married and Jay-Z put a ring on it, she releases 'Single Ladies.' Go get yours. Go get what you deserve. I think she’s really inspiring. She’s beautiful. She’s ridiculously talented, and she is one of the kindest people I’ve ever met. I’m the total opposite. I can moan my ass off; I can be lazy. She makes me want to do things with my life.”

But don't expect Adele to follow her heroine's footsteps by taking up acting or launching her own fragrance.

The singer recently won six Grammy Awards.

"No, I have absolutely no intention of going into acting or making perfumes," she tells Jonathan Van Meter. 

"I am a singer. I will stick to what I am good at and not spread myself thin and become mediocre at everything I do.”

That mantra includes giving herself three years to write a follow-up to her critically lauded 21, and continuing to tend to her voice after a burst blood vessel on her vocal cord forced her to undergo surgery and cancel her tour. Not that you'd know it from her stunning return to the stage at the Grammys.

"It’s kind of my comeback, really," she says. 

"There are a lot of people who probably think that I’m never going to sing again. So I will come for them and kick their arses ... I’m nervous whenever I perform. But seeing that it will be the first time opening my mouth again onstage in front of my peers? I’m shittin’ myself.”

Could have fooled us!
