I have been rollin’ in the deep with Adele for a while now. Her soulful sound and heartfelt lyrics are so on point and a rarity in our times. I adore her, but I have wondered how it is that a girl who looks like a …well a regular, real girl managed to get a deal and rise to be a number one artist without someone trying to changer her. I think that she is not only beautiful, and sexy, and talented, but having heard her on a few interviews she has a wicked sense of humor. I think seeing a woman that looks like a real, live, woman instead of a company manufactured concept of what women should look like or a pre-pubescent porn star in the making is refreshing. Here’s what she had to say in Rolling Stone Magazine
Adele Returns to #1; Talks Boobs, Bums & Body Image in Rolling Stone
Adele’s album 21 has returned to the #1 spot on the Billboard album chart. That’s its fourth week overall at the top, giving 21 the longest run at #1 since Taylor Swift’s Speak Now topped the charts for six weeks starting last October. 21 has also become the first album of 2011 to go platinum: according to Nielsen Soundscan, the disc has sold 1.03 million copies in seven weeks. That’s slightly more than her first album, 19, has sold since it was released in 2008.
Adding to Adele’s heat, she’s the cover girl of the new issue of Rolling Stone. Inside, she opens up not only about her music, but also about her body image. Adele is not a rail-thin model type, and she doesn’t care — she tells the magazine, “I don’t like going to the gym. I like eating fine foods and drinking nice wine. Even if I had a really good figure, I don’t think I’d [show] my [boobs and butt] for [anyone].” But that’s not to say Adele doesn’t appreciate the amazing figures of some of her pop colleagues. She tells the magazine, “I love seeing Lady Gaga’s boobs and bum. I love seeing Katy Perry’s boobs and bum. Love it. But that’s not what my music is about. I don’t make music for eyes. I make music for ears.”
