English singer Adele recently sat down with Matt Lauer to discuss her success and fame.
The interview will premiere June 5 at 8 p.m. on NBC
In the preview released by NBC, the pop star revealed how she really feels about being famous. Adele recalls one of the instances where she walked through what she called “tourist central” in London, worried that someone would recognize her.
"I was a bit worried. I was in my pajamas. I was in color. I’m always in black. I threw pumps on, this massive green coat and then little pink pumps. Nobody recognized me," she said in the interview. "A couple looked round but they were like, 'No, she’s in color.' And what would she be doing walking through a packed Trafalgar Square on a Saturday?"
During the interview, Adele also addressed the rumors that have surfaced throughout the singer’s blossoming career.
"I was adopting an Ethiopian child … that’s not true. My house was haunted, that wasn’t true. God, there’s been so many (rumors)," she told Lauer. "I don’t want to be a celebrity … I don’t want to be in people’s faces, you know, constantly on covers of magazine that I haven’t even known I’m on."

Even though Adele is one of the biggest stars in the world and won eight Grammy’s, she has maintained her shyness around the media. Her latest album, 21, which was released in 2011, has sold about 8,986,000 copies, according to Billboard.
21 has spent 63 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart, as well as 23 weeks at the No. 1 spot.
When’s it’s all said and done, Adele seems to just want to make music.
"I don’t want anyone chatting about me, really. I still hope I have a little bit of clout in 10 years,” Adele said to Lauer “All I’ve ever wanted to do is sing."
