Adele is back, baby, and who among us isn’t thrilled? Just look at some of the people who attended during her time Only one night special concert, which airs Sunday night: Lizzo, Selena Gomez, Drake, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sarah Paulson, Tracee Ellis Ross and Gabrielle Union – not to mention Oprah, who also sat down with the singer for an interview, which aired alongside Oprah. her performance. During their conversation, Adele talked about some of the most important parts of her life: her upcoming album. 30, her son, her divorce. She also talked about her body, which, despite her laundry list of accomplishments and the imminent release of her first album in six years, continues to be a cultural haunt.
In the interview with Oprah, Adele talked about her body in a very realistic way. After experiencing “terrible anxiety attacks” in the midst of a divorce, she says exercise helps keep her “centered.” She drinks less. She goes to the gym more. She did what made her body feel good to her. The way Adele talks about her body – or more often, not about her body – is often refreshing, especially in front of the public’s obsession with her looks since her debut album 13 years ago. Somehow, she was able to balance her obvious desire to keep her body out of conversation while also acknowledging that she had become unable to do so.
She told Oprah how the way people react to her body has changed in recent years. “Because my body has been objectifying my entire career.” Even Adele doesn’t talk about her weight, the rest of the world already. For female artists, this is nothing new. Women’s bodies are also brave or show out, organized specifically in the context of how they make others feel.
Adele adds, “I was very body positive then and I am also body positive now, but my job is not to validate how people feel about their bodies. I feel bad when it makes anyone feel terrible about themselves – but that’s not my job. I’m trying to organize my own life. I can’t add any more worries.”
This isn’t the first time Adele has addressed the public’s reaction to her weight loss – specifically, feedback from women who have previously felt like Adele is a role model for women who are often referred to by women. a glorified industry a very specific body type. “I understand why it was a shock,” Adele said in an interview published in the October issue of Vogue. “I understand why some women are particularly vulnerable. On the surface, I represent a lot of women. But I’m still the same person.” In that time Vogue in the interview, she also talks about how her body is portrayed as a sign of success – as if 15 Grammys, one Oscar and being among the best-selling female artists of all time wasn’t enough – after news her divorce broke: “The whole thing was like, ‘getting the revenge body’… God. Fuck him! ”
On that note, I believe the most important takeaway to come out of her recent interview with Oprah was: “I’m also a very good fighter,” Adele said. “I have a left hook that can kill you.”
