Three Adele Videos

September 16, 2012 -- 7:44 PM

The year of Adele

Anderson Cooper profiles British singer Adele, who reveals how she is handling her sudden and very unconventional rise to fame.

(CBS News) Adele is one of the most extraordinary singers of her generation, and her global rise to fame happened suddenly. "The kind of level of fame that I'm dealing with now . . . it was overnight," Adele tells Anderson Cooper. "Literally on a flight to New York. I landed, and I seemed to be the most talked about artist in the world that day." Talked about and best-selling. All of that success seemed in peril last year, when Adele developed serious vocal cord problems that required surgery. Would she sing again? As you'll hear in this profile, yes!

Adele sings a cappella for Anderson Cooper

When Adele performed "Rolling in the Deep" at the 2012 Grammys, she knew that many in the audience were expecting her voice to falter. After all, it had only been four months since she underwent vocal cord surgery.

But Adele herself wasn't worried about the health and strength of her voice, as she proved to Anderson Cooper just before the Grammys in this 60 Minutes Overtime video-- the first time her voice had been heard publicly since her surgery.

To hear Adele sing "Rolling in the Deep" from the stage is exciting; to hear her sing it a cappella just for you is extraordinary. That's how Anderson heard it during his recent interview with the young singer for 60 Minutes, and when we spotted this scene in the raw footage, we knew we had to share it on Overtime.

Adele talks about her body image and weight

Usually, it's Adele's vocals that dominate conversation about the British singer. But last February, the 24-year-old's physique became Topic A when Karl Lagerfeld told Metro newspaper: "She is a little too fat." The comment sparked outrage and an apology from Lagerfeld.

With high-profile critics like this, how does Adele herself feel about her figure? When Anderson Cooper recently interviewed the star for a 60 Minutes profile, Adele said she rarely thinks about her body image and feels no pressure to be a "skinny-mini" or wear revealing, hyper-sexual clothing.

"Even if I did have, you know, a 'Sports Illustrated' body, I'd still wear elegant clothes," she said.

She offered this bit of wisdom for young girls and women, who are bombarded with images of skinny-mini models: The first thing to do is be happy with yourself and appreciate your body-- only then should you try to change things about yourself.
