Adele is being featured in Fair Lady Magazine's September 2011 issue. Inside she talks about the inspiration behind the song "Someone Like You" and her stage fright.
"Someone Like You" is about the most amazing person that's ever been in my life, and it was the most poignant and incredible and devastating relationship I ever had. If I [didn't] write a song like this - what it became - I [was just] gonna end up being a bitter old woman forever. It was about coming to terms with the fact that I'd met the love of my life and it was just bad timing."
