Adele’s new single “Hello” sold 1.1M downloads in the US, coming in as the first song with more than a million downloads within its first week. The song is from her third album, 25, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

For a 27-year-old, the British singer’s maturity level is equivalent to someone twice her age. She sat down recently for a SiriusXM Town Hall discussion with Jenny Eliscu to promote the album. While answering a wide range of fans’ questions, one was regarding her body image. The singer responded calmly and confidently,

“I do have body image problems, for sure, but I don’t let them rule my life, at all. There’s bigger issues going on in the world than how I feel about myself and stuff like that. There’s only one of you, so why would you want to look like anyone else?” she asked rhetorically. “Why would you want to have the same hair style as everyone else and have the same opinions as everybody else.”
