Congrats to Adele! Not only is one of the best-selling artists of a generation and a soon-to-be mom (or "mum," as she would say), but she's also a cover girl. The 'Someone Like You' singer nabbed the cover of Rolling Stone's 'Women Who Rock 2012' issue -- and no one deserves it more!

The cover is an almost extreme close up of Adele's face, featuring just the bare minimum of her trademark strawberry blonde waves framing her alabaster skin. Her green eyes are lined in her usual dramatic cat-like style, complemented by thick black lashes and a nearly naked face. It's a simple, stunning shot.

Some excerpts of Adele's feature hit the Web as well. It touches upon some similar topics as we've heard before, including her hatred and avoidance of gossip. "My friends all read gossip s---, and they're like, 'I heard you you're going now with blah blah,' and I haven't even met these people," the singer griped. "It's bulls---."

Adele also touched upon how writing was crucial to her sanity following her big breakup, while still not revealing any hint of who actually inspired the album '21.' "We broke up mutually, and I was desperate to write about it 'cause I can't talk about my feelings to anyone," she revealed. "To my mom, to my therapist, to friends, to myself in the mirror -- I can't really do it. I've always written down how I feel."

Adele wasn't the only singer to speak about her music, though. The Queen of Soul herself addressed Adele and sang her praises to the high heavens. "It's been a long time since an artist like Adele has come along," Franklin told the mag. "Carole King is the last person who wrote the kind of lyrics women immediately could relate to. I love to hear a schoolgirl on the school bus yellin', 'We coulda had it all!'" Us too, Aretha!
