When Adele released "Chasing Pavements" in 2008, she was an instant success. The songbird from London, now worth an estimated $75 million at age 27, surprised fans everywhere with her soulful voice and all-too-true lyrics. And in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, she talked about her upcoming album 25 and its first single, "Hello," which racked up a record-setting 50 million YouTube views in its first 48 hours live.

The songstress, who since releasing her first album has become a mom to now 3-year-old son Angelo, also talks about her workout habits. Trying to build stamina for a possible upcoming tour, the singer says that she's "hitting the gym," finally.

"[I want to] get in shape for myself, but not to be a size zero or anything like that," she told the magazine. "I'm not, like, skipping to the f*@!ing gym. I don't enjoy it. I do like doing weights. I don't like looking in the mirror. Blood vessels burst on my face really easily, so I'm so conscious when I'm lifting weights not to let them burst in my face."

 

In 2012, Adele told MTV UK that she'd taken up jogging and gone vegetarian. Regardless, she's working on making positive lifestyle changes that are easy to hold onto. Looking for some more celebrity inspiration? These top celebrity trainer tips will help you get your rear in gear.
