Recently, British award-winning singer and songwriter Adele celebrated her birthday and shared her new look with her fans and the rest of the world on social media.
The British singer showed off her new look where she has lost a ton of weight, and this was met with a lot of reception from many adoring fans. The Instagram picture was shared early Wednesday morning while thanking her fans for the warm messages they sent out on Tuesday in honour of her 32nd birthday.
“Thank you for the birthday love,” Adele wrote, captioning a photo of her in a slim-fitting black mini dress. “I hope you’re all staying safe and sane during this crazy time.”
Adele has always reiterated that she is comfortable with her body and that she sees no reason to change and more so if it is to serve to the benefit of others.
In 2012, famed fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld apologized after reportedly calling the Grammy winner “a little too fat.” But Adele responded by saying “I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines,” the then 23-year-old told People. “I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that.”
“I’ve never seen magazine covers and seen music videos and been like, I want to look like that if I want to be a success,” she added.
In an Instagram post that the hitmaker released yesterday, Adele appears to have lost a considerable amount of weight. Now, usually, we expect to see people coming out to support someone or something but the reactions seem to have had a hidden message.
Some were happy with the change while others criticized Adele over her weight loss
To some, celebrating Adele’s weight loss only means that probably many just weren’t as happy with her body earlier, which could raise a lot of questions.
Others criticized her over her new look saying she looked skinny while others stated that she has only lost weight as a result of the stress from her divorce with ex-husband Simon Konecki, who both share a 7-year-old son Angelo.
Certainly, the singer’s birthday picture was received with a lot of mixed reactions but whatever the case may be, the singer sure does look stunning as she seems to be happy with herself and her body.
The reactions that Adele got from her picture goes ahead to show the nature and kind of people that we interact with every day over the internet. The issue of body-shaming is still a huge problem that needs to be worked upon in our societies.
According to People, the songstress has been following a strict diet and fitness routine all in the aim of improving her body health so that she can be the healthiest mother possible.
Her last album, 25, which earned her five Grammys in 2017 was in 2015, making it her third studio album. It featured singles like “Hello” and “Send My Love (To Your New Lover).” Since then, Adele hasn’t been in the spotlight for quite a while until when she revealed back in February while performing at her best friend’s wedding that she is working on some new music and to expect a new album by September.
