Adele goes vegetarian, plans to lose a lot of weight with her boyfriend

Adele

It feels like we’ve been talking about Adele’s weight for as long as we’ve been talking about her talent. Which is a shame, because Adele is crazy-talented, and she should be applauded for having a career based on, you know, MUSIC, rather than some tarted-up, sexpot image. Beyond that, I think Adele really is a physically beautiful young woman. But people continue to bitch and moan about her weight, like the fact that she’s more than a size 6 is just so personally offensive to them. Most recently, Jennifer Hudson allegedly tried to push Weight Watchers on Adele, and Karl Lagerfeld made an off-hand remark about Adele being “fat” too. What’s particularly grating is that it seems like Adele has actually dropped a significant amount of weight over the past year. She got sick, she had vocal chord surgery, she had to cancel her tour, and she got a new boyfriend – all of which may have contributed to her weight loss. Now The Mail’s Katie Nicholl claims that Adele is actively trying to lose weight:

She was called ‘too fat’ by fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld – and now Adele is shedding the pounds.

The singer and her charity campaigner boyfriend Simon Konecki, 36, have each lost almost a stone in the past month by following a strict vegetarian diet. The couple also go jogging with Adele’s dog Louie every morning.

‘The weight is dropping off them and they plan to keep dieting until the end of April,’ says a friend of the 23-year-old Grammy winner, who lives with Simon in a rented £6million pile in West Sussex.

‘They are inseparable – they are losing weight together, getting fit together and planning a future together. Adele says she’s doing her best work and feels healthier than she has for months.’

[From The Mail]

Some of you claimed this would happen – that whenever Adele stood up for herself and her “fuller” body type, she was just lying about how happy she was and she would go on a crash diet at any moment. I don’t know… it doesn’t sound like Adele is now saying “I want to be a skinny mini with my t-ts out,” you know? She’s not “selling out”. She’s just gone vegetarian. She’s fallen in love. She’s trying to be healthier. I’ll trust her… for now. I don’t think she’ll ever be the kind of artist who suddenly loses a lot of weight and then decides to promote a sexpot, pop-star image.

    I just hope she doesn’t become another one of those “I used to be known for my talent, now all I talk about is my weight loss” (I’m looking at you, Jennifer Hudson).

    • marie says:

      just what I was thinking, those commercials annoy the piss outta me.. When i hear the song, I change the channel.. but, if this is true of Adele, you can’t fault the girl for getting healthy

      • OlsenTriplet says:

        I know what you mean about turning the channel when you hear the song starting. But for me it’s not the WW commercials, but some insurance company’s commercial that shows people doing nice things for strangers after seeing someone else do something nice for a stranger. And the song is some Tracy-Chapman-sounding croon that goes “what started aaaaaas…”

        If I’m still in the room after those three words, I’m smashing the TV with a baseball bat. Maybe I should buy some insurance to cover commercial-induced rage blackouts.

      • Bodhi says:

        I ALWAYS mute the tv or change the channel when the WW commercials come on. Mariah’s Jenny Craig commercials too. I accidentally watched part of a JC commercial & one of the “testimonials” said that she lost 30lbs in 4 month. Sure that sounds impressive, but IF its true, losing that much weight that fast is really unhealthy & the weight is likely to come back.

      • Bobby sue says:

        Bless your heart! I do EXACTLY the same thing. Cringe, squint, and dive for the remote. I cannot stand the condescension and this is coming from someone who lost 55 lbs. on WW! I-just-want-JHud-to-go-way!!!

      • Bodhi says:

        @ryan, the before picture showed someone who was heavy, but not obese. One cannot go from heavy to completely sculpted in 4 months by just eating expensive diet foods. It doesn’t work like that.

        *crap, my comment is out of order again!

      • jwoolman says:

        Bodhi – actually 30 lbs in 4 months isn’t unhealthy if you start high enough (say, above 200 lbs). The usual recommendation is no more than 2lbs per week at that weight, slide down to 1.5 to .5 lbs per week as you get lighter. So the math says 30 lbs in 4months would be 4.5 weeks/month x 4 months, lessee – that’s 18 weeks, and 1.67 lbs per week. I actually was losing 2lbs per week myself without any planning other than eating several small meals per day, spaced out by about 2hrs, for other reasons (to deal with innards problems). Didn’t plan on it , but it was safe because I started high. I wasn’t even watching the scale, just tracking to space out the meals (so I had all the calories eaten vs exercise numbers in my tracking program), finally dug out the scale when noticed my clothes were getting so much looser. Then I looked at the numbers and kept better track out of curiosity. So 30 lbs in 4 months is definitely not some miracle.

    • GeeGee says:

      Exactly. I hate when celebs are saying – I love my body, blah blah blah, I’m proud of my body, blah, blah – and then they are losing weight. And a lot of it. I’m looking at you Adele, Xtina, Hudson. There is nothing wrong if they would say – I don’t like my weight, I wonna be slim but I’m too lazy or have some health issues or whatever.

    • corny says:

      ah, don’t worry, vegetarians can eat doughnuts and don’t forget bagels…and yes, Hudson is annoying just when we got rid of Kirstie who now sells her own crap and Valerie who now sells cover up clothing.

    • Camille (The original) says:

      I.want.shoes – I also agree with you.

  2. Tifygodess24 says:

    Everytime I hear/see a Jennifer Hudson WW commercial I want to throw something at the TV. Seriously. Could they play them anymore then they do now?! She is not the first girl to lose weight and won’t be the last. They act like she’s the 2nd coming or something. I hope Adele stays just how she is if thats what she wants. Everyone is too obsessed with her weight.

  3. right says:

    After all that talk on her part. Well, let’s hope she doesn’t become a bobble head. She’s already unfortunately, gone blond, which ages her 20 years.

  4. Hipocricy says:

    If the report is true, i only have one thing to say :

    “TOLD YOU SO !!!”

    Typical overweight woman using skinny girls as a punching ball, yet has already tremendously changed by losing weight, going blond and exposing her cleavage in magazines, the so called cleavage she criticized ‘those skinny colleagues exposing”.

    Just sell your product, but don’t go criticizing others for their physique to get some kind of valid superiority, then slowly but surely emulating them in the physical department. It makes you sound like a jealous biitch and a major hypocrite more than a so called superior artist who embrace her brunette overweight self cause she is all about art only unlike the skinny colleagues …yeah right !

    • Tapioca says:

      Adele never made an issue of her weight – everybody else did, and when she was asked about it said she didn’t want to be that superficial tits-out poptart, which she still isn’t. Dropping a few pounds and showing a hint of boob in Vogue doesn’t make her some “jealous bitch” – after all, which female artist could she possibly be jealous of, seeing as she’s the one with the critical acclaim outselling them all?

      Until she does a full “Sophie Dahl/Crystal Renn” I’m not going to judge her too harshly for a dye job and a smaller dress size.

      • Hipocricy says:

        Please. You can excuse her all you want. She still used some physical attributes to others to validate her superiority as if physique was a non issue for her which is now proven to be a big fat lie.

        She is like all the rest mindset wise and a hypocrite. Her physique is as important to sell as her music though she used other colleagues and their physique to distant herself from that mindset. She is blond now and lots of weight lighter than before.

        I find it hypocrital when people who try to sell an image of superiority by putting down other folks using physical attributes to say so. And sorry she now has her tits hanging out in magazines too, selling a sexier version of the so called superior artist who is so above that.

        She should just stop criticizing other artists for being skinny and sexy while she is doing the exact same thing at her level, but yet with the same mindset as selling a sexier version of herself, lighter, blonder and with tits hanging out in magazines.

      • Tapioca says:

        @hipocricy:

        Wow, you sound really bitter, like she’s betrayed “the fatties” by taking care of herself.

        Instead why not be be inspired that if Adele can stay voluptuous whilst making healthy changes so can you!

      • gg says:

        I don’t get the negativity. The girl’s just living her life. If she wants to lose weight, then good for her! It doesn’t have to mean any more than she wants to be healthier and stop fighting squeezing into her jeans.

        And Jennifer Hudson is paid to do the ads because she’s a great role model. If you don’t like the ads, hell, turn the sound down. I think she looks fantastic and I am happy for her!

      • Izzy says:

        @Hipocrisy – puh-leez. Those pictures hardly qualify as “t*ts hanging out.” Trust me. I live in Miami, where I’ve REALLY seen the phenomenon. It ain’t pretty. Adele looks gorgeous in those photos – and there is NOTHING wrong with any woman showing a little cleavage.

    • Jaye says:

      What the heck are you babbling about? She’s NEVER criticized any other artist regarding their weight/dress size. I think all Adele has been saying is that she’s comfortable in the skin she’s in. She’s never skinny bashed, like say, Mo’nique did. So what she’s going Veg? So what if she loses weight? She’s not betraying some sacred trust to other big girls out there and she’s certainly not being hypocritical. There’s no HYPOCRISY(’cause that’s how you spell that. If it’s going to be your id, you should spell it right.)

    • bluhare says:

      Ummmm, she’s had surgery on her THROAT (you know, that place that your food goes down on its way to your stomach); that could be one reason for weight loss. She also has a new boyfriend, which is probably another weight loss trigger on its own. If she’s a depressed eater and is now happy, in love, and getting laid every other heartbeat no wonder she’s thinner.

      So maybe she didn’t try to lose weight, but it started to happen and she decided not to pig out too much just to keep you happy.

    • Day says:

      I agree w.you 100%. I love Adele but she always got on my nerves w.the…just what you said, ‘Typical overweight woman’ drivel. Adele has, on more than one occasion, bashed skinny girls for the way they look. Saying she never find skinny girls to be the least bit attractive. Now, imagine if Megan Fox or Paris Hilton went on record saying fat ass women are ugly as hell. The same ones defending Adele would be cursing them out. Nobody who is fat wants to be fat. All this ‘I love myself as I am’ crap is just their way of dealing w/it. I hate how it is perfectly okay to rip on girls deemed ‘too skinny’ and go on about how unhealthy it is but yet it is perfectly okay to be overweight. In case you didn’t know, that is also unhealthy. Will never get the double standard.

    • Linney says:

      I guess she never got the memo telling her she can never, ever lose weight lest she be a hypocrite according to you. How can the life of a perfect stranger get you so riled?

    • Raven says:

      You may want to take your own advice.

  5. Anna says:

    I really don’t see how the top picture is ‘fat’ any more, I mean she’s not SKINNY, sure, but not fat.

  6. kiko says:

    well good for her.in the first pic she looks great.if she loses a few more pounds i think she will look fantastic!

  7. Manuela says:

    stupid. 1st of all bcs of her previous speech how she is happy with her body. so machine is started working,,,so whats next…sex tape or reality show. it s cycle

  8. mln76 says:

    She’s got to do what’s best FOR HER…There are health problems that go along with being overweight anyone think that her or her boyfriend (who is also on the chubby side) may be more concerned about that then WTF Karl and the rest of the media are saying. Her goal may very well be not to lose 70 lbs and look anorexic but to lose 15 and be healthy. Or then again this could be a B.S. report.

  9. SolitaryAngel says:

    I don’t think she’s losing the weight for anyone except herself; anyone who has an addiction (and I’m NOT saying Adele does) like overeating or smoking, etc. won’t quit until they’re ready. I think Adele is feeling better with her throat problems taken care of, she’s fallen in love, and wants to be healthier for her man, as he apparently does for her. That’s WONDERFUL you guys!

    Also, she may be thinking about having children soon and conceiving/pregnancy will be so much easier on her if she slimmed down some. Personally, I don’t care what she looks like because I love her music and her personality, but I want her to be happy and healthy so kudos for her!

  10. Ycnan says:

    yeah I really dislike her blond hair too. also no one likes being overweight (NO ONE), i don’t blame anyone for losing some pounds.

  11. lucy2 says:

    She seems too secure in herself and what she wants to lose weight for anyone else. If she were concerned about her image and trying to be like everyone else, she would have done so already. If she’s choosing to get more fit and healthy, I suspect it’s because SHE wants to, and no one else’s opinion matters.
    She’s a beautiful woman with an amazing talent no matter what.

  12. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    I don’t think she was lying when she said she was happy with her weight, I just think all of the outside “chatter” chipped away at her self confidence.

    As an aside…My boss, who was a size 10 at 5’3″ and 155 lbs, recently lost 25 lbs because someone asked her if she was pregnant. She didn’t look fat nor pregnant and was confident and beautiful at that weight. Now, her goal is to be 112 lbs, “her highschool weight.” I think she’s taking it a bit too far, all because some jerk didn’t keep his mouth shut 😔

    It’s so sad that an insecure bag of bones is preferable to a confident woman with a little extra weight on her frame.

    • Lisa says:

      That’s a pretty bold statement at the end of your post. Not everyone who loses weight is an insecure bag of bones, just as being bigger doesn’t insure someone’s confidence.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        I think you’re reading into my statement too much. Someone who’s pressured into losing weight by someone else’s mean spirited comments is doing so because of insecurity. I was speaking about my boss’s experience and resulting state of mind; not making blanket statements, as you so grossly assumed. I applaud anyone who’s happy big or small.

  13. monette says:

    Kaiser today is Fassie’s B-Day, aren’t we going to get a special post in his honor with lots of pictures?

  14. deb says:

    for now i’m going to take it with a grain of salt. by that i mean, i won’t be calling her hypocrite or anything.

    she’s always come across as having a good head on her shoulders, albeit a little bit ditzy at times, but hey, then again she’s 23? that’s young-ish! (despite the make up making her at least late-20s).

    for now, i’d rather think that it’s health-related. she’s already tried to stop smoking because of her throat thing, although whoever’s been a lover of smoking could attest, that’s not an easy thing to do (you’d think some major incident would put you off things for good, but i look at my granddad for this. he had three throat surgeries and couldnot stop smoking even though he swore up and down he would stop, we’re not holding our breath).

    maybe she’s going to prep herself on an extended tour, that means stamina both of the body and of the vocal cords. eating healthy is always good. losing a few pounds and gaining good musculature and strength is good too.

    not fat is not always equal to skinny. just a healthy body size and weight. we’re not talking victoria beckham thin here.

    i for one, hope that she stays healthy and stays happy. :) the things love does to someone. awwww.

  15. T.C. says:

    The blonde hair was the first sign. No matter how secure you are, the machine always gets you. The more time you spend in the industry the more some of it rubs on you. It’s hard staying an individual for long.

  16. serena says:

    Meh. I get the feeling she was lying, just to be ‘cool’ and protect herself (which is fine).
    And while this may be all because of her new lover, I think she really doesn’t love being overweight.
    That being said, I love her voice and music but please, don’t go and say one thing and the opposite one day and another.

  17. Liberty says:

    My gorgeous, gifted businesswoman friend went for a checkup. She works out, does Pilates, is fit and strong and US size 8. Her haggard, emaciated female doctor wrote down that she was heavyset. Heavyset!? And so, it can start there…sad. If Adele is doing it by choice with her boyfriend for health (veg diet) etc. As long as she knows she is beautiful and fine as she is already. Ps my friend is 5’9″ tall and now overcome with self doubt. Her 4’11″ scarecrow doctor is a mass of egocentric bitter superiority. GAH!

  18. freeloveforall says:

    Can’t a girl just change her mind? Maybe she was happy about her weight when she made those comments. Maybe now she just likes how she feels being thinner. I think this is all just personal growth.

  19. Dragonlady sakura says:

    I love Adele. I don’t fault her for wanting to be healthier, but let’s be honest. She was browbeaten by the media for her size and it probably got to her. What woman wants or needs to constantly hear critics bashing her weight when they should focus on her incredible voice. I just wish haters would leave other people alone.

  20. aenflex says:

    Haters gonna hate.
    Adele can do whatever she pleases with her body, I never pay attention to it anyhow.
    Her VOICE, people. C’mon!

  21. BerMan says:

    This happens old the time. And its everywhere and in our faces. That women with curves is not acceptable or beautiful any longer. That women have to circum to what is not natural and be transformed into believing that they must change because “you” say they don’t look right. Todays women must get their power back and soon. Because ladies, we are letting “them” take it away. (see gov. re: womens reproductive/proventive issues and all the control media planting seeds into womens insecurites!)

  22. funnygirl says:

    Adele is obese! She is about a UK Size 18! Which would be obese even for someone 6 foot tall. She’s not “curvy”..if she wants to lose weight, she should go low carb (a healthy low carb diet like South Beach) or else do low GI. Vegetarianism isn’t that healthy-hello vitamin B12 deficiency..and it still has a pile of carbs-rice, pasta, potatoes, lentils, beans…

    And she does look better with the blonde hair and better makeup.
    Of COURSE shes not happy with her weight!! No one is happy being fat, they just say they are and then when they lose the weight, they’re like “Oh thank goodness I lost all that weight!”

    She doesn’t need to be a size UK 6-8 but if she got to a UK size 10-12, she would feel and look so much better! And her healthy would be much improved!

    I can’t notice any weight loss so far but we shall see..

    • bluhare says:

      Lentils and beans are proteins.

    • LAK says:

      Being vegetarian is not unhealthy.

      B12 can be found in spinach and brazil nuts. Lentils and beans are protein.

      i am a card carrying vegetarian/vegan. 25 yrs of super health. not so much as a cold.

    • ol cranky says:

      in addition to legumes which, as the others have already said, are a healthy source of protein and vitamins there are also “grains” like Quinoa & Farro that are also decent sources of protein. You may also want to look up hemp seed to see what a powerfully nutritious (and very yummy) food source that is. And then there are “meat” substitutes like Quorn (my fav b/c it’s soy and gluten free), soy meat, tempeh. . .

      Vegetarianism isn’t all tofu, brown rice and cabbage these days and very few people are “chip & dip” vegetarians anymore.

      Since today’s Monday, maybe you could check out Meatless Monday for more info on a healthy plant-based diet. BTW – I’m an omnivore so I’m not standing up for “my diet” or making a political statement.

    • atorontogal says:

      I think you’ve chosen the wrong name because nothing you said was funny or remotely accurate. Living a vegetarian lifestyle is in fact very healthy. And how in the world would you know whether she is happy or not? That’s just speculation and your opinion NOT what she may or may not feel!

    • jwoolman says:

      Vegetarianism is plenty healthy. Good grief, if you’re worried about B-12, add some Red Star nutritional yeast to your popcorn or chew some B-12 gum or pop a B-12 tablet under your tongue once a week of so… Anyway- if she’s changed from carnivore to vegetarian and is getting more exercise, she might be losing excess weight without “dieting”. That happens to some people, depending on how they eat. The change can help normalize their metabolism, especially if they accidentally eliminated a hidden food allergen. Just because she was comfortable at her old weight doesn’t mean she can’t also be comfortable at a new weight. What really matters healthwise is being fit to do what you want to do. Heavier people can be quite fit. And lighter people can likewise be unfit.

  23. Shelly says:

    She looks thin enough in that first picture. Normal thin. I hope she doesn’t become like all the rest.

  24. emcull says:

    That profile pic is absolutely stunning! Overweight or skinny, she is a huge talent, a beautiful girl and I can’t wait to hear the songs she will write when she is happy and in love!

  25. Franny says:

    I don’t understand people on here sometimes. For years everyone was concern trolling, saying how unhealthy it was to be that size and always talking about that. Now she had a nice boyfriend, and they are trying to make a healthy life style change, eating more vegetables and going on runs, and now its all “adele is conforming, she really does care!”. Adele never said she wasnt ever going to change, she just said she wanted people to focus on hey music, and not her appearance. I’m glad that she feels comfortable in who she is, and she did things that make her feel good about herself.

  26. Lisa says:

    Assuming it’s true, it’s still stupid. What’s she going to do at the end of April, drop the ‘diet’ and the weight will magically stay off? Dream on.

  27. cecizahn says:

    I knew that this was going to happen. Most of the people that are trying to loose weight (myself included) are doing it becouse of the body criticism and if that improves your health…well. I knew that she was going to put her looks first and the talent second, the moment that everybody talk about her figure insted of her voice…
    So sad that she turn herself into the fashion, vane and hollywood world.

  28. sup says:

    i read about this on ontd yesterday and i still think of it as an april fool’s day joke. i mean wasn’t she so against losing weight and all. whatever path she chooses i wish her good health

  29. Moi says:

    Damn she’s a beautiful woman. There is nothing wrong with trying to be healthier. As long as she isn’t trying to become a skinny minny. Adele has never made her weight an issue, other people have.

  30. TheOriginalKitten says:

    She’s probably like everyone else-has good and bad days when it comes to body image-seems pretty natural to me. I think it’s kind of crazy to harsh on her for losing weight. That being said, I hope she doesn’t lose too much. That’s always the struggle with that sort of thing-so easy to get carried away especially when faced with so much positive reinforcement and attention for losing weight.

  31. Daphne says:

    this makes me sad. a person should be able to be themselves in any circumstance. and having her kind of ability should make people realize that size isn’t everything in a society OBSESSED with size. but in hollyweird, it’s all backwards. I really want her to stay the way that she is and embrace her curves. oh well. it was probably asking too much in an industry where everyone’s a bitch about weight. giant UGH.

  32. Angie says:

    wtf @ the ‘she was lying to us before, then!’ comments. Maybe she really was happy at that time, maybe she was just telling herself and us that and now she realizes she isn’t, maybe she was perfectly happy with how she LOOKED until her vocal chords were suffering, and this inspired her to take better care of her health all around. Maybe the remarks finally started getting to her, she isn’t made of stone. But acting like her accomplishing this is a personal let down for us all and like she has disappointed us is just wrong. It seems to me we are always trying to make larger women our personal mascots, and if they change in the slightest or dare to set a goal to be smaller they have defied us. And guess what, that is just as objectifying as society treating skinny women like their own personal objects to exploit. A woman’s body is her own. Either way, and WHATEVER the case may be, it is her prerogative to change her mind. If she wants to go veg and lose weight, that is 100% her personal right to do so. I wish people would stop acting like women’s bodies belong to them. She doesn’t owe anyone anything in regards to how she looks. Women perpetuating this attitude kinda makes me feel rage tbh.

    No matter what she is an exceedingly BEAUTIFUL woman with a vast amount of talent. Those are the ONLY ‘sizes’ we should care to discuss.

  33. Diana says:

    I think I’m going to agree with Kaiser on this one. this thing just doesn’t seem Adele-like. I think she genuinely doesn’t care and focus solely on her music and I applaude her for that. So she’s gone vegetarian, that doesn’t mean she’s desperately trying to loose weight.

  34. Shy says:

    The reason why everybody are obsessed with Adele’s weight is that she has very pretty face. That’s why it was sad to see her overweight. And she looks much-much older that she really is with weight. She is like 23 now. And few years back she was supposed to be young girl but with all that weight she looks a lot older. Like some aunt.

    If she would be some ordinary woman with ordinary face with that same voice then people would not care that much. But she has beautiful face and everyone wanted her to look good and look her age.

    And it’s kind of sad how little-overweight people (I assume) have made some kind of symbol from Adele. It’s like they don’t want her to be thin :) Because they say to themself: “Look at Adele. She is overweight and is respected super star. If she doesn’t want to lose her weight then I don’t have to too”. It’s all over comments on Adle’s news every time. Like they almost hate her and don’t respect for being thin. And they are angry and encourage her to stop sliming down :) They say: “You are beautiful Adele. You don’t have to lose weight”.

    Almost every overweight person doesn’t like to be overweight and wants to slim down. Brave people like J.Hudson or Jomah Hill or Adele have the will do do something. And you are judging them for that :) You are angry at them and you made it feel like it’s embarrassing for Adele to sit on diet. That’s hypocrite. If you don’t have the will to do it doesn’t mean that others can’t try…

  35. Trillium says:

    Good for her. Vegetarianism is a very healthy and rewarding lifestyle. If she sticks with it she’ll see wonderful results.

  36. PaulY says:

    Awww…She’s so pretty just as she is. :-(

  37. kitts says:

    It’s amazing how much weight I have kept off since going vegan. I lost 13 kgs 2 years ago and I eat whatever I want and I haven’t gained it back. Obviously I don’t eat the junk I used to and that is great for my health. I would highly recommend it and I know it is hard to imagine life without animal products but I don’t miss them. It is hard when I go out sometimes because some places haven’t got vegan food but at home it never feels like a burden!

  38. Rachel says:

    This makes it sound like she’s choosing a vegetarian lifestyle in order to lose weight. But apparently her new boyfriend is involved in a lot of charity work? It’s quite possible that he’s opened her eyes to the heinous cruelty involved in factory farming, and she’s made the choice not to support it. And if she has, it’s no one else’s business. I have friends who are vegan/vegetarian & they don’t discuss it with others. They simply live their lives as they see fit. Maybe she’s just doing the same.

  39. Teresa__Maria says:

    I love Adele, but the truth is that she is overweight and that makes her look years older than her actual age.
    I think going vegetarian and loosing weight is good for her.
    I don’t like those super-skinny Hollywood stars, but I just can not defend Adele’s unhealthy weight just because I like her a s a singer.

    Perhaps she’s just one of those rare individuals who are comfortable in their own skin no matter what they look like on any given day. So when she is heavy, she loves who she is. And when she loses a few pounds, she loves who she is. Maybe we can call it a healthy self esteem.

    You can love who you are and walk with confidence but eventually grow to hate the way jeans cut into your post-pregnancy belly or get tired of your joints aching from carrying excess weight. So why then is losing weight hypocrisy? Do we not change our hairstyles, makeup techniques, hobbies, career paths? Doesn’t mean we secretly hate and regret our past selves. It’s just moving forward.

    This is so ridiculous… How people keep bashing Adele for her weight really makes me upset. I mean… really. It’s just so… SO ridiculous that people need to get uptight about this.

    I think it’s because of the media, and their image. Celebrities are the fantasies of “normal people”. It’s their fantasy world, where everyone looks perfect, everyone is thin, happy, healthy (not really too healthy, and not really happy), and beautiful. Then they see someone that isn’t skinny, and they think their whole world is ruined.

    If Adele was happy with the weight she had, that’s great. Don’t lose weight. If she wants to now, what’s the harm in it? It’s so hard to pay attention to the positive things being said about you. You always listen to the negative things. She probably felt like the whole world was against her because of her weight, and half of it seems to be (media world). No one can stop talking about her weight. She has to keep hearing she’s fat.
    To all of those that feel betrayed she’s on a diet now: Would you have been able to stay strong? When all you hear is that you’re fat? No one cares about your voice, they care about your weight? They take pictures not because you’re a star, but to show everyone how fat you are and make fun of you?

    To me, Adele isn’t fat. She’s just chubby. It’s not like she has any extra curves anywhere – from what I can tell. And as long as you can hide any extra curves, you’re not really that fat. When you can’t? Okay, maybe a problem is developing. But, seriously, she’s not fat. She just looks a little thick. But not fat. And even if she is, she looks freaking gorgeous. And if you don’t think so, that’s you. Everyone has their own preference. A woman/man you might think is attractive is not attractive to many others. You have your taste in music, and you have your taste in people. Don’t try to make the whole world see it the way you do and hate those that you hate and dislike what you dislike. It’s not going to happen. It’s a waste of energy and time. Why make this personal? It’s silly. Really. It’s so childish to be bashing Adele for her weight.

    The media, being a celebrity and all may be about appearance. Sure, nearly every star made it through appearance. Either because they look extremely funny or extremely beautiful/hot, etc. But that doesn’t mean it has to stay that way. Why not let Adele be the reason our image of celebrities change? Let it be about their talent, now! For too long has it been about their appearance. People need to get a better grasp on reality. These celebrities, we all know, are not real. They’re masks. They’re like the dolls on your shelves. They don’t really have any real life in them. The only time they do, is when you don’t see. Like Toy Story. Drop this fantasy world where everyone is “drop-dead-gorgeous”, perfect, and join reality, where people have flaws, where people make mistakes, and where people actually grow up.

    Adele is a person. She’s human. She has feelings. She does the same things as you. She’s just a little more known by the world than you. But that doesn’t make her better, or worse than you. Maybe she can sing better than you, well, I’m sure you can do something else better than she. She’s HUMAN. And we’re human. Regarding this relation, I’m sure you can understand. So, try to understand that she’s not perfect, like you’re not, and accept it.

    With regards to J Hudson’s suggestion to Adele, I think it was just a friendly suggestion. Why do people have to make a big deal about it. If Adele is happy with her weight, she would not feel offended or bothered if people go suggesting stuff to her because those suggestions would not really matter. Adele is amazingly talented and I agree that people should accept her for how she looks and all, but ug she decides to slim down, then there shouldn’t be any stories going about how she’s forced to slim down because people are bashing her for her figure. Implying that just ruins get character, like she’s someone who will do things because other people says so. She wants to slim down, let her. There shouldn’t be any more talks as if J Hudson elbowed Adrle’s ego for her figure because there shouldn’t be a big deal really. It’s sad how people create these imaginary clashes to begin with. Just saying.
