Adele admits she has "body image problems" but thinks there are more important things to focus on.

The 'Hello' hitmaker, who has three-year-old son Angelo with charity worker fiancé Simon Konecki, admits she "for sure" still struggles to feel confident despite showing off a more svelte figure recently, but believes there are more important things to focus on.

The 27-year-old star told SiriusXM Town Hall: "I do have body image problems, for sure, but I don't let them rule my life at all. And there's bigger issues going on in the world than how I might feel about myself and stuff like that.

"But I think, mainly that, there's only one of you, so why would you want to look like everyone else? Why would you want to have the same hairstyle as everyone else and the same opinions as everyone else?"

The British singer is known for penning emotional ballads about heartbreak and even struggles to connect to more upbeat music when she's not working.

She said: "I try to listen to music that might uplift me a little bit, but I just don't really connect with it, and music for me is all about connection."

Asked which other artists she enjoys listening to, she added: "Mainly Jeff Buckley, I'd say and that's been my entire life I'd done that."
