Adam: (On his battle with bulimia) The popular misconception is that eating disorders are a woman's problem - but they can affect men too. And illnesses such as bulimia aren't just all about vanity. For me it was the same as a drug addiction or alcoholism - and it was my way of dealing with problems that I couldn't face up to.
Adam: It sounds silly but all the screaming girls.. it doesn't feel real. You go home to your family, your brothers take the mickey out of you.
Adam: I knew the music industry would be hollow. I thought at least it'd be parties every night and hanging out with Kylie, but it wasn't. You're working every second, which I don't mind as long as what I'm doing inspires me, but it didn't.
