Look! Adele shows off her natural beauty on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine

Los Angeles – Adele is making one of the biggest comebacks music has ever seen and she told Rolling Stone magazine all about it.

Posing with wet hair and natural tones of make-up the 10-time Grammy winner gave Rolling Stone a peek into her private life and this is what she had to say...

Will she go on tour?

Adele is undecided on whether she will tour her new album.

The 27-year-old singer had to cancel UK and US tour dates in 2011 following the release of her second album 21 as she had to undergo surgery on her throat and is terrified it may be irreparably damaged if she heads out on the road again.

She said: "When I've sat down and thought, 'What can I do to bring something new to the table?' It was just like, 'Tour.' Because I haven't done it properly.

"If my throat goes, then I'll never be able to do a tour again.

"I'll be able to get my throat fixed again and do studio work, but do I want to do some-thing and then fail at it and be too scared to ever try it again?"

On her personal life

When talking about her personal life Adele admitted doesn't feel the "need" to get married.

The Skyfall singer has been with her boyfriend, Simon Konecki for over three years but insists they have not secretly tied the knot despite press speculation and sees no reason why they should.

She explained: "Yeah, we're still together. We haven't broken up. We've never broken up. We've been together. We just haven't felt the need to get married. We've got a kid together. I feel like that's a big enough commitment."

Adele’s previous boyfriend caused the heartbreak that inspired 21 which has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide and made her a global icon, but she is completely over him now and has laughed off speculation her new single Hello was written about the same guy.

She explained: "If I were still writing about him, that'd be terrible. Hello is as much about regrouping with myself, reconnecting with myself."

Why the comeback?

When explaing why she decided to return to music, Adele told Rolling Stone she is unsure if she'd have returned if it wasn't for her son.

The Hello singer claims the tot has made her believe in herself and therefore spurred her on to create her third album, which will be released on 20 November.

She said: "I don't know if I would've come back had I not had my kid.

"I didn't understand, actually, what I had achieved and how far I had come. So I feel fucking so fortunate that the stars just aligned for me and allowed me to have the most ridiculous ride ever."
