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.

  1. I so agree with you! Adele is absolutely stunning and has the voice to match. Why do people think we are all supposed to look the same? God knew what He was doing when he gave us diversity!! How awful it would be if everyone was stick thin, with the same hair color, eye color and skin color that “society” thinks is beautiful. I relish the fact that people come in different sizes, shapes and colors. It allows for inspiration, connections to be made and a much more interesting place to live in. Thanks for posting on this topic, it is very near and dear to my heart. I love Adele, and I think she is perfect the way she is. Thank God she is confident enough to stand up to the ridiculous comments and questions being thrown at her about her weight. Hopefully people will take note that they are the ones with the “weight problem”, and the solution to that problem begins with a change in their perception of things!!!

    • Thank you so much for your comment. I just got so tired of all the negative comments regarding Adele. She’s beautiful and that’s the end of it. Do you have to be a certain size to be talented?? I loved your statement “God knew what he was doing” Yes he did. Imagine if we all looked the same, wow what a boring world it would be. She looked gorgeous at the Grammys and BAFTA awards in London. You’re right again, thank God for her confidence and that she is able to brush the smallness away from her. People need to stop looking at dress size and just recognize God given talent.

      • Yes, she did look beautiful! …That is the great thing about blogging, when an issue hits close to your heart you are able to voice it and start discussions about it. Hopefully it can lead to a change somewhere down the road! We all have so many different things we can contribute to this planet if people would just recognize that there is room for everyone, and we don’t all have to look the same to do the job we were sent here to do!!!Keep up the great work! 🙂

      • You have summed up exactly how I feel! You have no idea how much your comments mean to me. Blogging truly does allow you to put your own thoughts out there and hopefuly create dialogue with others all over the world. It means a lot to get encouragement from someone like yourself. Thanks again. I’m going to pay you a visit and read some of your posts. 🙂

      • Awww, thanks Maylana! Your comments mean a lot to me as well. It is really great to have found you. It also means a lot when bloggers respond to their posts. I am glad to have found a “sister” across the pond who can relate!!! 🙂
