Did Today’s Workout Make You Want to Cry? Adele Can Relate

Sometimes you just need to cry on the outside during crazy-hard workouts, so thank Adele for feeling the pain with us.

As if we needed another reason to worship Our Lady of Breakup Songs, Adele has announced a massive North American tour ¡ª her first in five years ¡ª that will take place from July to November of next year. In preparation for her 25 tour, the singer has been overhauling her diet and implementing a fitness routine . . . and it seriously shows.

In her interview with Rolling Stone, Adele spoke about how she lost over 21 pounds, while also maintaining her body-confident outlook. The article read:

Adele is trying to build stamina for her possible return to the road, so she’s cutting back on sugar, though not carbs altogether (“I’d never deprive myself like that!”), and hitting the gym, “to get in shape for myself, but not to be a size zero or anything like that.” Her regimen? “I mainly moan,” she says. Small cackle. “I’m not, like, skipping to the fucking gym. I don’t enjoy it. I do like doing weights. I don’t like looking in the mirror. Blood vessels burst on my face really easily, so I’m so conscious when I’m lifting weights not to let them burst in my face. And if I don’t tour, you’ll catch me back down at the Chinese!”

Her recent health and fitness journey can be credited to her young son, Angelo, who also motivated her to quit smoking. She said, “I absolutely loved it, but it’s not that f*cking cool when I’m dying from a smoking-related illness and my kid is, like, devastated.”

We commend Adele on her impressive transformation and look forward to possibly seeing her absolutely kill it in person ¡ª that is, if tickets don’t sell out immediately.

Adele Talks Body Image in the New Issue of Rolling Stone

Adele is anything but inconspicuous: all it took was one moody music video for the honest, ridiculously talented singer to basically break the Internet. The same can be said for her refreshingly frank interview style, which has been deeply missed these past few years during her professional hiatus.

In her recent cover story for Rolling Stone, the singer spoke against the way critics use her image to comparatively demean other mainstream singers. She said, “I’d rather not be the person that everyone gets pitted against. If they do decide to get their body out, I would rather not be that person because that’s just pitting a woman against another woman, and I don’t hold any more moral high ground than anyone else. So that has pissed me off a bit. Not that I’m going to start getting my tits out now!”

A longtime advocate of body confidence, Adele also talked about how her career might be different if she embodied an ideal of industry “perfection.” She said, “Would I show my body off if I was thinner? Probably not, because my body is mine. But sometimes I’m curious to know if I would have been as successful if I wasn’t plus-size. I think I remind everyone of themselves. Not saying everyone is my size, but it’s relatable because I’m not perfect, and I think a lot of people are portrayed as perfect, unreachable and untouchable.” Something tells us that Adele ¡ª and her career ¡ª are doing just fine.
