Adele is arguably the most powerful woman in the music industry right now (aside from Taylor Swift), but the big-voiced singer has wondered if she would be just as successful if she wasn't plus-size.

It's one of the many tid bits that iHeartRadio learned about the songstress in her brand-new interview with Rolling Stone magazine, which was released on Tuesday morning (November 3). In the issue, your favorite heartbreak belter also talked about motherhood, having Rihanna in her squad and more. Take a look at some of the highlights below!

On facing body image concerns in the industry: "Would I show my body off if I was thinner? Probably not, because my body is mine. But sometimes I'm curious to know if I would have been as successful if I wasn't plus-size. I think I remind everyone of themselves. Not saying everyone is my size, but it's relatable because I'm not perfect, and I think a lot of people are portrayed as perfect, unreachable and untouchable."

On becoming pregnant at the height of 21's success and motherhood: "All my plans went through. It was like, 'For good measure, let's see if I can cope with all of this and then having a baby.' But I think actually the pregnancy was perfect timing in the end. It might've seemed like the most ridiculous time to have a baby, but I was starting to get a bit afraid of everything. When I had him, it made everything all right, and I trusted everything because the world had given me this miracle, you know, so I became a bit of a hippie, an Earth mother."

On Rihanna being in her squad: "I wish my squad was all supermodels. We are, in our brains. I guess I have my own squad. It's not as interesting as some of the other squads that are around right now. But maybe Rihanna can be in my squad! That would be really cool. Oh, God. She's life itself, isn't she? I love her."

On Madonna's Ray Of Light inspiring 25"That's the record Madonna wrote after having her first child, and for me, it's her best. I was so all over the place after having a child, just because my chemicals were just hitting the f*cking roof and sh*t like that. I was just drifting away, and I couldn't find that many examples for myself where I was like, 'F*ck, they truly came back to themselves,' until someone was like, 'Well, obviously, Ray of Light.'

On her being just as impatient as we are for Frank Ocean's new LP: "I'm just f*cking waiting for Frank f*cking Ocean to come out with his album It's taking so fucking long. That sounds so stupid, coming from me, doesn't it?"

On the dangerous hardships that come with fame: "People think I hate being famous And I don't. I'm really frightened of it. I think it's really toxic, and I think it's really easy to be dragged into it. Watching Amy deteriorate is one of the reasons I'm a bit frightened. We were all very entertained by her being a mess. I was f*cking sad about it, but if someone showed me a picture of her looking bad, I'd look at it. If we hadn't looked, then they'd have stopped taking her picture. That level of attention is really frightening, especially if you don't live around all that showbiz stuff."

On her overall view on her career: "My career's not my life. It's my hobby."
