I agree. I wonder how much of it is Lauer (who I don't know), how much it's Adele's doing. She is quite capable of taking over an interview and leading it in a different direction or just adding things she wasnt' asked about if that's what she would want to do.
And who was choosing the "scenography"? It was a set up for something much more formal than the interview by Anderson Cooper.
I've not seen the whole interview, only the cut fragments, and one thing I really don't like about it is editing. It seems to be quite intrusive, and one can frequently see cuts during the interview. The 60 minutes interview had none of it.
Btw., in the trailer there was the piece where she was asked about what was the strangest rumour she has heard about herself. It's not there in the (cut) versions I've seen. Have they edited it out all together?
