When he first exploded on the scene with his debut album “19” in 2008, the British singer was knocked because of the plus size.
Then he lost weight, but it didn’t seem enough for some people.
Around the same time, he discussed body image with CNN Anderson Cooper during the “60 Minutes” interview and said he never felt the pressure to be seen in a certain way.
In the years since, Adele has risen to a greater level as an artist. She also became a mother, married and divorced.
We as a society love before and after when it concerns our star. Every celebrity transformation, physical or otherwise, often leads to our public judgment whether it is good or bad. But does praising Adele’s current appearance somehow criticize her previous appearance? Or do we only acknowledge transformation?
Not that Adele is thinner has not been criticized.
Adele’s last photo caused a lot of rumors by several people on social media, where people had considered her weight loss in January.
Comments on Adele appear slimmer after photos were published about her on the beach in the British region of Anguilla.
Chalk one for you can’t win because you lose.
With celebrities, it seems like many feel entitled to comment more freely about them because we buy their music, or watch their films. We know them but we don’t Tofu them, so what’s wrong with sharing opinions about them?
But Adele’s body is his. How he chooses to see is also his own business and not a reflection of his art, extraordinary talents or professional achievements. He sold millions of albums, had four Billboard No. hits 1, won 15 Grammys and sold countless stadiums – all of various sizes.
Yes, Adele has lost weight. But up or down on the scale, she remains a beautiful woman who creates beautiful art.
Amen, Adele. Amen
