"I don't want to be some skinny mini with my tits out. I really don't want to do it and I don't want people confusing what it is that I'm about."
So says Adele in an interview with Anderson Cooper on Sunday, one taped prior to this singer landing in the news this week for reasons beyond her incredible ability: first, fashion guru Karl Lagerfeld referred to her as fat. Then, he apologized.
The timing for this 60 Minutes piece, therefore, could not be better, as Adele speaks at length about her body image and her goals as an artist; namely to just write "love songs" and nothing more. She isn't going for shock. She doesn't care about sex appeal. She just wants to sing.
Isn't that refreshing?
