Adele: Proud to Represent the Majority of Women

Adele ruled the Grammys this year. She picked up six of the night’s biggest awards and wowed the audience with her first performance after undergoing vocal cord surgery. She’s got a lot to be proud of.

Her incredible comeback makes Karl Lagerfeld’s recent bodysnarking comments (and his subsequent non-apology) about her being “too fat” seem all the more ridiculous. Adele is not totally immune to criticism about her body, but she makes it a point to surround herself with people who build her up while steering clear of those who put her down:

“I enjoy being me…I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, you know, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs and it just wears them down. And I just don’t want that in my life. I have insecurities of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me. I represent the majority of women and I am very proud of that.”

So don’t be waiting for any party invites from Adele, Karl. She’ll be celebrating her fabulousness without you.
