Adele: ‘I puke quite a lot before going on stage’

The singer also speaks about body image and her plans for five kids

Adele has revealed that she vomits regularly before going onstage to perform, thanks to severe stage fright.

The singer, who will perform at tonight’s Barclaycard Mercury Prize ceremony (September 6) in London has said:

I puke quite a lot before going on stage. Though never actually on stage. But then, I sh*t myself before everything…The bigger the freak-out, the more I enjoy the show!

The Tottenham soul star made the confession in the new edition of Vogue. The star speaks about body image in the interview as well as pre-show purging, saying:

I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down, and I don’t want that in my life… I have [body] insecurities, of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me.

Adele also spoke about her wish to have lots of children. But only if they’re boys.

I’ve always got on better with boys. Most of my friends are boys. Like, if I have children, I want five boys. Boys love their mothers whereas girls can be so mean to each other.
