Leave Adele Alone…

In Daily Musings on February 10, 2012 at 1:28 pm

I know I said I had a deadline, but this came across one of my news feeds and I  just had to ask…

Why is everyone so pressed regarding Adele’s weight? Is it because she is not the so-called perfect size 0-4? I think she looks beautiful and she knows how to dress herself and look fantastic as well as fabulous.  If she’s happy with how she looks then what’s the problem?  I love this quote from her in an interview with People Magazine “I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that“.  Here’s another quote from her which will be in this weeks issue of People “I haven’t felt insecure about my figure.  I wasn’t brought up like that”. My question is… Why does she have to explain herself? I don’t see anyone questioning Giselle about her size (the Brazilian model, married to Tom Brady for those of you who don’t know whom I’m referring to).

 I’ve been reading for some time, how she has a beautiful voice, beautiful face, but she needs to lose weight.  Doesn’t that sound like a back-handed compliment to you?? It does to me.  I’ve read some nasty comments on Twitter and other social media sites, from people who I feel have their own personal body issues to deal with.  As far as I’m concerned she’s beautiful, talented, confident, successful, nominated for a Grammy (or Grammies) and… Getting Paid!!! So leave her alone.  Just yesterday Karl Largerfeld gave his 2 cents, saying she had a pretty face, but she’s a “little too fat”! only to have to turn around less than 24 hours later and apologize and tell the world he’s a huge fan. He now says his comment was taken out of context.  Like I said before, leave her alone!  Adele has no desire to be a size zero, so again I say… LEAVE HER ALONE! Love you Adele!

Watch Adele live at the Grammys on Sunday February 12th.  BTW: Click on Adele’s name above (in orange) to see a trailer of her live at The Royal Albert Hall in London.

Remember, women are beautiful in all shapes and sizes, it’s all about how you carry yourself, how you feel about yourself, it’s about CONFIDENCE!!! Work it!

     

A quick capture of Adele  having a little fun! it’s on a repetitive loop, but it’s cute anyway.  http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lz07ksWVri1qfqf4lo5_r2_250.gif
