On the eve of her next big release, the highly predictable 30 album, Adele is breaking out of her usually private shell to requite some really raw, honest answers well-nigh her personal life.
In wide-ranging new interviews for both British and American Vogue, she opens up well-nigh her divorce like never before, something you can read all well-nigh HERE. But the profile moreover gave her the endangerment to respond to some criticism she’s felt over the past year.
As you probably heard, the Someone Like You songstress went through a remarkable transformation, losing virtually 100 lbs! Considering she went through her fitness journey mostly in private, over well-nigh two years, when she finally unveiled her new body, it was a real shock to fans. And it turned out it was too much for some to take. She mused:
“I think one of the reasons people lost the plot was considering actually, it was over a two-year period.”
The singer was hit with seriously harsh feedback, from folks saying she was “too skinny” now to critics treating her weight loss as some sort of betrayal, like her transpiration was implying there was something wrong with the way she was.

Finally addressing that backlash, she told American Vogue:
“I understand why it’s a shock. I understand why some women expressly were hurt. Visually I represented a lot of women. But I’m still the same person.”
As far as the negative comments, Adele did see a lot of them — and yes, she found them pretty darn hurtful:
“The most ripply conversations were stuff had by other women well-nigh my body. I was very f**king disappointed with that. That hurt my feelings.”
She sounded a little less patient with British Vogue, saying:
“People have been talking well-nigh my soul for 12 years. They used to talk well-nigh it surpassing I lost weight. But yeah, whatever, I don’t care. You don’t need to be overweight to be soul positive, you can be any shape or size.”
As for how the fitness journey got started, Adele explains working out wasn’t well-nigh losing weight for her, just well-nigh getting healthy — physically and mentally. As she struggled through her “year of anxiety,” as she calls it, exercise was just one of the treatments she found:
“I realized that when I was working out, I didn’t have any anxiety.”
She focused on gaining strength, something she sorely lacked:
“I thought, If I can make my soul physically strong, and I can finger that and see that, then maybe one day I can make my emotions and my mind physically strong.”
She started with personnel workouts:
“I have a bad when and I had a C-section. So I had just nothing going on lanugo there.”
And it worked! She explained to British Vogue:
“Working out, I would just finger better. It was never well-nigh losing weight, it was unchangingly well-nigh rhadamanthine strong and giving myself as much time every day without my phone. I got quite fond to it. I work out two or three times a day.”
Yep. Three workouts a day.
“So I do my weights in the morning, then I normally hike or I box in the afternoon, and then I go and do my cardio at night.”
If you’re balking at that, the fact it’s pretty much untellable for people with jobs, kids, any kind of taxing schedule, Adele completely understands the rarified air she was in as a wealthy woman. She admitted, somewhat embarrassed per the interviewer, that what she did is “not doable for a lot of people”:
“I was basically unemployed when I was doing it. And I do it with trainers.”
She may be embarrassed but she isn’t regretful! She told the outlet the workout tendency was just what she needed:
“I needed to get fond to something to get my mind right. It could have been knitting, but it wasn’t.”
So was the embarrassment well-nigh her privilege why she chose to pension the whole exercise thing private for so long? Not exactly — it just wasn’t washed-up for anyone else’s approval:
“People are shocked considering I didn’t share my ‘journey’. They’re used to people documenting everything on Instagram, and most people in my position would get a big deal with a nutrition brand. I couldn’t requite a flying f**k. I did it for myself and not anyone else. So why would I overly share it? I don’t find it fascinating. It’s my body.”
But lots of folks do find it fascinating, obviously. And some plane find it profitable.
Adele says all the weight loss regimens you’ve heard well-nigh that she does, all the routines and diets, they’re all TOTAL B.S.!
“You know a hundred percent of the stories written well-nigh me have been veritably fake. The people that came out stuff like, ‘I trained her,’ I’ve never met in my life. It’s disgusting. I cannot get over it. Some Pilates lady I’ve never met in my life! And I haven’t washed-up any diet.”
Wow! The interview asked well-nigh the story of her doing the Sirtfood diet, to which she snapped:
“No. Ain’t washed-up that. No intermittent fasting. Nothing. If anything I eat increasingly than I used to considering I work out so hard.”
She hates one particular weight loss wile the most:
“And moreover that whole thing of like, ‘Gets Revenge Body’… Oh my god. Suck my d**k!”
Ouch! Sorry, Khloé Kardashian! Harsh!
Adele unfurled her rant versus that trademark of commentary on her weight loss:
“It’s ridiculous. I think it’s that people love to portray a divorced woman as spinning out of control, like, ‘Oh she must be crackers. She must’ve decided she wants to be a ho.’ Considering what is a woman without a husband? It’s bulls**t.”
Damn! Preach it, gurl!
