    @MJ Stan yes! i love when i read that she cried after Bey told her that listening to her (adele) is like listening to God. Talent recognizes talent. love it!

  6. rihannaqueen April 13, 2011

    She is boring. Rihanna makes catchy music. I dont know what is so great abt her voice. Some people just like to hate on rih cause she doin well. Haters r just fans undercover

    • Alex May 31, 2012

      The difference among both is that Rihanna is a s*** star and Adele is a singer.

  7. omg April 13, 2011

    @rihannaqueen exactly catchy not supstance,thats real music and is reconized as talent give her her props

  8. jasmine April 13, 2011

    Really? Did you really just say that RIhanna sings better than Adele…Lord what has the world come to? smh

  9. omg April 13, 2011

  11. GA Peach April 13, 2011

    so happy for Adele well deserved.

  12. jasmine April 13, 2011

    its really sad…so you mean to tell me that if she’s not doing some dance/pop catchy song with flashy costumes and make up, laced with auto tune and music that overshadows her voice its not good music? cuz that’s all that’s out now.smh yall need to wake up for real. Adele possesses something that alot of artist don’t have anymore: TALENT!

  13. DION_ISH April 13, 2011

    OMG She looks soooo GORGEOUS on This Cover!!

    Yesss Adele!!

    And DEAD @ Some ppl above…. Little do you know a TALENT like Adele Loves Rihanna and stans for her #OPP

    *Flips Our Bangs*

  14. royalkev April 13, 2011

    OMG, I was thinking why is Angelina Jolie on Rolling stone’s cover… Adele looks amazing. She’s very beautiful. It’s nice to hear that she has great taste in music too!


  15. lihalee April 13, 2011

    I love her statement ” I don’t make music for the eyes I make music for the ears”

  16. Poisonous April 13, 2011

    I just love it when talent reigns and she didn’t have to release a corny and stupid sexually charged video.. Its all PURE TALENT.. @RIHANNAQUEEN Don’t worry, you will DEAL… This is what music is about.. Creating classic album.. #STAYMAD

  17. DION_ISH April 13, 2011


    Oh Rihanna has Classic worthy material. and she’s displays Pure Talent on Several occasions…if you were referring that she didn’t.

  18. Keesha April 13, 2011

    “@MJ Stan yes! i love when i read that she cried after Bey told her that listening to her (adele) is like listening to God. Talent recognizes talent. love it!”

    I LOVE that!

    “I love her statement ” I don’t make music for the eyes I make music for the ears””

    I do too!

  19. Blanco Family April 13, 2011

    You see that Nicki Minaj THAT IS CALLED HOMAGE AND RESPECT. look listen and ABSORB

  20. Keesha April 13, 2011

    “Oh Rihanna has Classic worthy material. and she’s displays Pure Talent on Several occasions…if you were referring that she didn’t.”

    What classic worthy material has she made??? I mean I like some of her songs, but what has she really put out that is classic worthy? Keep in mind #1’s and top 10’s don’t make a song a classic, just saying. And on what occasions has she displayed this “pure talent” that you speak of???

  21. trucie April 13, 2011

    yes yes yes. Love her. Will be buying first and only issue ever of Rolling Stone once this drops.

  22. Keesha April 13, 2011

    Anyway, Adele’s album definitely has the potential to be a classic album. Not only can you listen to the album all the way through, but each song on the album is amazing. There are no album fillers whatsoever.

  23. Keesha April 13, 2011

    “yes yes yes. Love her. Will be buying first and only issue ever of Rolling Stone once this drops.”

    I might just get a copy myself.

  24. DION_ISH April 13, 2011


    Ummm hmmm Lets see …GGGB DEF is potential to be a Classic album for Rihanna and will be what shes known for, every artist has it.

    Based off Quality, Rated R could def be a classic material worthy album that even went recognized by greats like Sade and Prince.

    And Far as her displaying Pure Talent, Watch this girl perform her ballads/music acoustic….Amazing! ..Or her Bob marley covers with nothing but a guitar playing her VOICE, no backtrack or nothing! ..My Personal Fav is her Disturbia acoustic performance on AOL Sessions

  25. Poisonous April 13, 2011

    Lol @KEESHA.. I co-sign with ya… And this album is selling like a mess around the world.. Im sure she’s gonna reach 10 Mil by June.. That’s how it should be done.. 21 is untouchable, same goes for Leona’s Spirit.. We need albums like that. Its a pity s** sells more than talent in this biz. @DION_ISH.. You will see the light one day. There’s still hope..

  26. Keesha April 13, 2011

    @Don-Ish I thought you said that she displayed this talent on SEVERAL occasions… I mean I guess she has improved, but I still don’t she this “pure talent” that you say she has, especially since “Disturbia” is not a song that requires much vocal ability, if any, in my opinion. And her CKB performance that I saw left much to be desired, especially seeing as how she was over-powered by Jennifer Nettles.

  27. Sisa April 13, 2011

    I love this! Adele is amazing, even if you don’t like her music/tone/sound, you can’t deny she has true talent.

  28. ChEeRfUl CyNiC XD April 13, 2011

    Best part I read “I don’t make music for eyes, I make music for ears.”

  29. DION_ISH April 13, 2011


    From Unfaithful to Rehab she delivers vocally Live everytime…Disturbia is mildly Auto tuned yet she sings it 100% live on all parts and did a fantastic job of stripping it down on AOL Sessions. her David Letterman Russian roulette perf etc. Theres plenty of performances i can go by

  30. JohnVidal April 13, 2011

    – Finally Rolling Stone gets it right! They were becoming trash
    – Rihanna has classic material?????????? Girl bye!
    – At this point Adele´s domination in 2011 has only a possible rival: Gaga´s album

  31. Blanco Family April 13, 2011

    @JOHNVIDAL Its lady gaga… come on now. Adele is just geting her shine right now

  32. True Blue April 13, 2011

    This is the first time in God knows how long Rolling Stone has actually put someone WORTHY on the cover. I hope it’s not a fluke, though. But props to RS nonetheless for doing it.

    I still consider it a s*** rag, but I may buy this issue.

  33. i’m a billy goat…..baa April 13, 2011

    Her cover looks wonderful and she didn’t even have to toot her ASS up for the camera!

    Wow will wonders never cease?

    I wonder if she debased herself and her ex-teenage lover in this edition of RS?

  34. WildChild April 13, 2011

    She looks gorgeous. Rolling Stone has common sense this week.

  35. pink.kisses April 13, 2011

    @Keesha-yes you need to buy it ! lol its amazing

    Love Adele, and she stans for my fave (Bey). I love em’ both!

  36. DION_ISH April 13, 2011


    For foolish people that cant read….i NEVER said she had classic records, i said potential classic material based off quality.

  37. dluisboi April 13, 2011

    @PinKisses She isn’t a Bey stan but she does love and respect her
    She is an Etta James and Mary J Blige stan

    It’s good to see Adele on the cover of this legendary magazine.
    I’m glad the world took notice of this talent!!!

  38. Help Me, Rhonda April 14, 2011

    people can claim Adele is boring, but I’m sure she will long outlast Rihanna.

    Pop music is like junk food. and Rihanna and her stans are just that

  39. bey’knight April 14, 2011

    some people are loud , some are not….that doesn’t make them boring. if everyone has rihanna slutty personality then that would be boring. All rihanna sells is shock and s** value no substance whatsoever – industry hooker

  40. THE UNDISPUTED QUEEN OF POP April 14, 2011

    LMFAO@ People bringing Rihanna name up n a Adele post. Adele is an 8 or 9 in talent while Rihanna is a 5. There is no kind of competition idiots. The only thing Rihanna has thats almost could be considered a pop classic is Disturbia or Umbrella and thats it. I love how Adele is slaying these little girls out rite now. I wish more talent will come out this year and make it to the top like Adele.

  41. tru T April 14, 2011

    LMFAO@ people always joining forces to bring rihanna down at every opportunity they get.
    rihanna has the potential to get to adele’s , beyonce’s and all these other talents calibre and she will get there with the support of her fans and HATERS (hey). so no amount of hating will stop her. her fans + haters will bring the best out of her.

  42. Beyonic: Round Flop April 14, 2011

    Eww she looks like trash! Uglier than Beyonslut!

  43. JohnVidal April 14, 2011

    @Blanco Family
    I know it´s Gaga´s year (unless a cataclysm occurs happens) but Adele is exciding all expectations: 1.8 million in the UK alone and already 1 million in the USA. And the first single Rolling in the deep is at an all time high on itunes USA right now. It seems it´s not going to stop for now

  44. mobwife (a.k.a. i’m a billy goat…baa) April 14, 2011

    Wait what did I just read?…LOL You have to actually have talent to reach the level of Beyonce and Adele. Both of these ladies put in the work that is necessary to be top artists. Not everyone can dance but everyone should damn well be able to sing both in studio and live if they are declaring themselves singers! You cannot rely on sympathy to keep you afloat forever!

  45. AdeleMyLove December 8, 2011

    she’s my ultimatum crush.. for me her beauty is stunning as elizabeth taylor’s..i really like her green eyes it’s stunning and i can’t stop myself looking at her pics everyday…then i realized that i was obsessed with her beauty and her amazing voice…if given a chance to see her in person i will shout to the world how beautiful she is and how i adore her….MADNESSSSSS!!!!!! f*** you haterZ with no taste and absolutely with an undeveloped ears you all have!
