ambercat: I saw that, and I agreed with him on pretty much all points. Adele is a better role model than most pop stars, and not just because of her weight. Obsession with weight and appearance to the degree that many popstars/actresses have seems to cause nothing but trainwrecks of crazy. I'm not saying everyone should just hoverround around Walmart and be 500 lbs, but I think there's a happy medium that's psychologically better.


EXACTLY THAT.

The emphasis on thinness in show business can be... disturbing, to say the least.


Coastalgrl: Id like to see her experiment with some jazz, & blues. Maybe some soul.


Those could be boss directions to go, aye.

And this may be a bit TOO experimental, but maybe going with a bluegrass sound might be interesting.  (I have unusual ideas, so consider the source.)
 

I will admit Ive been listing to the Sunshine band in the morning. Great way to start the day.

You don't even want to know what I listen to... or maybe you do!

ggnnww: I know it's supposed to be funny but where exactly does Adele fit into this ?
Oh I know it's a asteroid the size of your mamma



I get the impression she only fits into tents.

I do not understand the concern. She is not very large.

Perhaps this attempt will actually succeed.

Cerebral Knievel: there is nothing wrong with Ms. Adele.


<ding> Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems.

It was wrong when Janis drank herself to an early death, and it's as equally wrong for someone as talented as Adele to eat herself to an early death. But as has been pointed out already in this thread, it makes for album content and it sure is tasty corn this year.

Burning up through the atmosphere, she will lose weight.

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Yogimus: Meh, I've watched worse...

It's not so much the watching as it is the hearing...


ambercat: Oooo an Adele is fat joke, how edgy.

Here's another one, Adele is fat, so people made jokes about how she would be all sad and desperate and forever alone and unwanted by men due to her fatness when her first album came out, but she went on to have a happier and more stable life (love and otherwise) than Britney, Christina, or Taylor.

Oh, and she's roughly the same age as Taylor Swift too, so just look at them and compare them maturity wise. Size isn't the only thing Adele has more of.

You might appreciate TV show host Adam Hills tearing Joan Rivers a new one over her lazy "DURR HURR HURR ADELE IS FAT" jokes. (pops, not-safe-for-work language, the fun begins at 0:47)


Excellent clip. Thanks for linking it.

I misread that as "These fad diets always do more ham than good".

So did she, hence the problem.

Anorexia, bulimia, drug abuse and alcoholism are all health problems too. Adele may not be as healthy as a female athlete, but compared to her peers (pop stars and actresses) I don't think she's unhealthy. I don't think she'll have a lower life expectancy than other singers/stars.

Cerebral Knievel: have any of you jaggoffs ever managed to get a bag of antlers "hottie"? Cuz I gotta tell you that the overall effect can kinda be uncomfortable. forget about sharp knees, I'm talking sharp hips!


I know right?  If only women would stop being so superficial.  Don't they know how sharp six-pack abs, biceps, back muscles and deltoids can be?

This happens about once, sometimes twice per day and noone notices.  It's hot in the media right now for some reason.

Mikey1969: WTF Indeed: Who knew asteroids could be fat but still have a pretty face?

Yeah, I don't get this whole "Adele is the fattest person to walk the planet" shiat. She's overweight, sure, but holy Christ, people need to get some perspective, she's not THAT heavy, yet some asshole's always making her sound like she's giving Honey Boo-Boo's mom a run for her money or something. I remember the days when it was the chick from Wilson Philips who was the fat one, at least that made sense... I just don't understand why this Adele chick is the focus of everyone's scorn. Is she a bad singer or something?


She's quite popular, so she could be a very positive role model instead of the very negative role model that she currently is.
Her fans see her and go "being fat's OK!" which is a very very horrible thing to think.

Ironically, if she ever loses the weight, the amount of hate heaped on her from bitter fatties ("she's a traitor to her size!") will eclipse whatever you see here. So she's kind of screwed either way.

Being "fat" is NOT a "negative" type of role model. Being OBESE is an issue. People need to get off of this whole "Looking like a scarecrow is healthy" jag. Sure, we have an obesity problem in the US, what people keep ignoring is this unhealthy obsession with scrawniness also. Too skinny is as unhealthy and dangerous as too fat, if not more so.

From the pictures I've seen, this woman's state of "fat" is not something that wee need to start beating the drums of hate over.
