British beauty Adele has had her fair share of heartbreak, saying in the December Cosmopolitan that one tumultuous relationship in particular was the reason she recorded one of her biggest hits, "Rolling in the Deep."

Despite her success, especially over this past year, she remains humble.

"My favorite singers are Etta James and Aretha Franklin," she tells the mag. "If you were to look up the word singer in the dictionary you’d see their names. Not mine."

The songstress was recently forced to completely cancel her tour due to a throat issue and upcoming surgery -- which  got twisted in a rumor that she had throat cancer.

Her rep quickly corrected the chatter, telling People, "We would like to reiterate that Adele is to undergo surgery for a hemorrhaged vocal chord. All reports regarding any other condition are 100-percent false."

Adele herself had this to say on her blog:

"I have absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly and fully, or I risk damaging my voice forever. I have great confidence in believing you know how much this upsets me, how seriously i take it and how truly devastated and annoyed I am by this ... I’m gonna be starting up vocal rehab as soon as, and start building my over all stamina in my voice, body and mind ... please have faith in me that this is the only thing i can do to make sure i can always sing and always make music for you to the best of my ability."

    Undeniably imagine that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked at the same time as other people consider issues that they plainly do not recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and also outlined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you

    'Chasing Pavements' is my favorite Adele song. When I first heard 'Rolling In The Deep' I didn't like it and I thought it would be one of those songs that would grow on me but it didn't.
