13 Indisputably Important Adele Quotes About Body Confidence

Adele is the poster child for body confidence. She eloquently (and elegantly) dismissed Karl Largerfeld’s “a little too fat” comment two years ago and the fashion world loves her all the more for it, and regularly asserts that she’s in the music business for exactly that: music – not being half-dressed on men’s magazine covers. Here are 13 indisputably important Adele quotes about body confidence that will stop you obsessing about your weight and how it affects your worth. Because, spoiler: it doesn’t.

“I don’t make music for eyes. I make music for ears.”


“I like looking nice, but I always put comfort over fashion. I don’t find thin girls attractive; be happy and healthy. I’ve never had a problem with the way I look. I’d rather have lunch with my friends than go to a gym.”


“It’s never been an issue for me – I don’t want to go on a diet, I don’t want to eat a Caesar salad with no dressing, why would I do that? I ain’t got time for this, just be happy and don’t be stupid. If I’ve got a boyfriend and he loves my body then I’m not worried.”


“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 tits and arse out for no one.”


“I’m very confident. Even when I read people saying horrible stuff about my weight.”


“I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that.”


“I have insecurities of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me.”


“I’m really happy to be me, and I’d like to think people like me more because I’m happy with myself and not because I refuse to conform to anything.”


“I’d lose weight if I was an actress and had to play a role where you’re supposed to be 40 lbs lighter, but weight has nothing to do with my career. Even when I was signing a contract, most of the industry knew if anyone ever dared say lose weight to me, they wouldn’t be working with me.”


“I have never been insecure, ever, about how I look, about what I want to do with myself. My mum told me to only ever do things for myself, not for others.”


“Even if I did have, you know, a ‘Sports Illustrated’ body, I’d still wear elegant clothes.”


“The focus on my appearance has really surprised me. I’ve always been a size 14 to 16, I don’t care about clothes, I’d rather spend my money on cigarettes and booze.”


“I like having my hair and face done, but I’m not going to lose weight because someone tells me to. I make music to be a musician not to be on the cover of Playboy.”


God bless the Queen that is Adele Adkins. Now: can we have another album yet please? TC mark
