I love Adele. I love her writing, her voice and her individuality. Honestly, I would have a hard time watching her hop around onstage like Shakira (Although I love her, too). I agree with Cel, I think she was referring to other stars, period. Honestly, she's probably going home with a wheelbarrow full of Grammys soon... She doesn't need to be skinny for her career.
On another note, I know it is REALLY hard to believe but some people TRULY don't wish to be skinny. I know this because it's something that I am struggling with right now. I have been overweight (not obese) since my teens and I have always wished I was thinner ONLY when I went shopping or wore a bathing suit. Every time I've started a diet or exercise regimen I have quit after a couple of weeks. I used to think it was because I was lazy, I just recently realized it was because the moment I started to get thinner I freaked out and quit. Do I think I look hot at my current weight? Absolutely not. I don't see myself as ugly, either but something about seeing myself thinner really frightens me. I know some of what frightens me but it's too much to get into here.
Sorry this is so long, lol.
