British singer, Adele made waves the is side of the pond because of her incredibly honest music and her insanely soulful voice. However, her size, as in her weight, has come into play. Karl Lagerfeld has called her fat and there’s even a website dedicated to humiliating the “Rumor Has It” singer. I just found out that even Lady Gaga has referenced Adele’s weight in defending her own.
Adele is penning a biography with writer, Chas Newkey-Burden and in the book, Adele exposes the issues she’s had with her own weight. Check out some of the standout excerpts below:
“I read a comment [about me] on YouTube that I thought would upset me — ‘Test pilot for pies’ — but I’ve always been a size 14-16 and been fine with it. I would only lose weight if it affected my health or sex life, which it doesn’t.”
“It was the biggest deal in my entire life to date. . . He made me totally hungry. . . He was older, he was successful in his own right, whereas my boyfriends before were my age and not really doing much. He got me interested in film and literature and food and wine and traveling and politics and history and those were things I was never, ever interested in.”
It’s a great thing that the songbird is now happy with the man in her life, Simon Konecki and the lovebirds have welcomed their new baby into their lives last month! Congrats to Adele and don’t worry about those haters!
