Hello! This blog is being discontinued. With my NEW weight loss journey on the horizon, I felt it was only right to start with a brand new home. I hope to see you there!


Adele Covers Vogue, Talks Industry's Obsession With Weight

23-year-old British singer, Adele, has captivated many with her astounding vocal ability and soulful ballads. Catering to a fan base that transcends her homecountry, the idea of a popular singer not fitting the standard, slim mode - has continued to amaze ... or confuse?

Now, it's no secret that the entertainment industry is not kind or as accepting of plus-size women, as they are men of size (see: Rick Ross and his moobs). And if you happen to breakthrough with a record deal or acting gig, your body will eventually become the 'concern' of others. Well, Adele's not having it! Covering the October 2011 issue of Vogue UK, the Set Fire to the Rain performer refuses to let people's thoughts of her body, overshadow her talent. She shares:
“I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down. And I 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.”
The 10 x platinum artist also discusses her weight, which she has been outspoken of, in defense of mindless critics:
"My life is full of drama and I won't have time to worry about something as petty as what I look like," she told 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 get my t*** and a** out for no one."
