Adele: Proud of Her Body!

by at . Comments

"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?

Hey 17 year olds get a clue. If you want to be desirable, men love women like Adele. A gorgeous woman comfortable in her own skin, not some loser worrying about her weight. That's exhausting.

I love this woman. Although she is a little under weight for my liking-still she is gorgeous.

This proves that confidence is beauty! It doesn't matter the shape of your body, as long as you own it and she is very beautiful inside and out.
And the only reason most celebs have to defend their apperance is due to being a role model, they don't want young children wanting to think being over weight or anorexic is healthy there are risks with being over weight believe it or not.

For Valleri,
"I'm a bit overweight but most definitely not as fat as adele"?? First of all honey, fat is fat. You seem as if you're searching for validation. Just because you spend the free time you have left after your "3rd year medicine" classes wondering what it would be like if you were skinny doesn't mean that all fat people do. Why do people find it so hard to believe that fat people can be absolutely happy with who they are and they way they are, just because they can't?
