Adele is all about empowering young women now that she's made a name for herself in Hollywood.
"More than anything, it’s just being yourself. That’s one of the reasons I’ve been so lucky with my career — on top of the obvious of me being a white woman in music. I think people are quite scared of me, and they’ve been like that since I was 18. I don’t know what it is; I think there’s no room for negotiations when it comes to what I want to do and how I want to do it. And it’s always been like that. I think that comes across in my interviews," the 35-year-old told The Hollywood Reporter in a new interview.
"I’m not going to say who they are — I see a lot of the girls, up-and-coming singers, I get in touch with them because no one ever did that to me, gave me any advice or any secret nuggets of truth or tricks of how to survive it in any way. So I have them ’round and we have some wine and I talk to them," she shared.
The Grammy winner knows all too well what it's like to get famous overnight, which is why she wants to help others along the way.
"Even if you’re really close with your team, your team can’t relate to you suddenly being thrust out of your life and thrown onto the public stage. And that saying, 'You have your whole life to write your first album and you have six months to write your second.' That pressure was quite strange. And also your hobby becomes your job, which sounds really great, but your relationship with your hobby changes," she noted.
"So I really like supporting the girls. Sometimes I would love to go into management, but I can’t work with talent. I say that as one — we are a nightmare," she added.
The musician also knows what it's like to give back — something she does a lot but under the radar.
"Because I also don’t ever want people who I’m trying to help question why I’m doing it. I don’t want them to think that I’m doing it because it makes me look good, and my authenticity when it’s coming down to it. And I certainly wouldn’t want them ever feeling like I’m using them or anything like that. It’s a passion of mine that I do. But it is something I really want to start going into, my philanthropy phase. I definitely want to start it back home though first," she said.
