Singer Adele, who recently announced that she will be performing at the Grammys thsi month, is "a little too fat," says Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld.

Singing sensation Adele is in no rush to release her next album and her fans might have to wait for two or three more years, it has been reported.

"I am really looking forward to some time to do nothing. I imagine I will be 25 or 26 by the time my next record comes out, as I haven't even thought about my third record yet. I am just gonna lay some concrete, set up home and just 'be' for a bit. I will disappear and come back with a record when it's good enough. There will be no new music until it's good enough and until I'm ready," she told the Billboard magazine.

Adele, 23, who has been recovering from a throat surgery, said she had not even started writing songs for her next album.

However, when asked about her singing plans, she said: "The surgery couldn't have gone better. But because I was singing with damaged vocal chords for three or four months and because of the surgery and because of the silence after the surgery, I now have to build myself back up vocally."

"It's gonna be a lot easier for me to sing now. And mentally I won't be worried about my voice on stage anymore. So I have to get used to that. That'll take most of January, so February I'll be singing properly," she added.
