Adele says she’s proud to ‘represent the majority of women’ and I applaud her for her courage

Let’s be honest…if Karl Lagerfeld, king of all things Chanel, were to call me “fat” like he recently did Adele, I would bury myself in a hole and never come back. How mortifying! However, Adele is making it seem like the joke is on Karl and she has nothing to be ashamed about — how amazing is that?

“I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines,” the 23-year-old singer told People after hearing Karl’s comment that she is “a little too fat.” “I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that.”

In an interview with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes that airs Sunday, Adele talks more about here weight.

“I’ve never seen magazine covers or music videos and been like ‘I need to look like that to be a success,'” the talented Brit explained. “I don’t want to be some skinny mini with my tits out. I really don’t want to do it and I don’t want people confusing what it is that I’m about.”

In a world where anorexic runway models are applauded and women feel insane pressure to look like Hollywood stars, it’s refreshing for someone as talented and successful as Adele to embrace herself. Not only is she secure with who she is and how she looks, she has no desire to drop 20 pounds or suffer through a diet. She’s content with what she brings to the table right now — a lesson I know I could stand to learn.

Thanks for the positive message, Adele. Who needs “skinny minis” when we have YOU representing the rest of us?
