Did Vogue Go Too Far with Adele?
Adele is gracing the cover of Vogue this March and you may do a double take.
She is gifted with an iconic voice but, with that, she has an air of beauty that in my opinion is like no other. The cover and spread has attracted mixed opinions. Whether she likes it or not, her weight has been in the spotlight since she hit the limelight. But, she says she does not feel the need to slim down or be sexualized to be successful.
The cover and pictures in the spread are illustrating. otherwise. They are criticized to be too photoshopped and not true to the star's real image. A large and dark shadow is visible near Adele's face and it appears that this effect slims her face. More shadows and dark wardrobe helps the other shots in the spread to make her appear thinner. Her waist and bust are other things that her fans are questioning.
While others are praising photographer Anna Wintour for capturing images of Adele's body rather than just a profile or close-up of her face. The March edition is already in the stands.
At the Grammys Adele took home six Grammys and it was her first time performing after her operation. She looked slimmer and absolutely gorgeous.
Prior to the awards, Adele told Anderson Cooper, "I’ve never seen magazine covers and seen music videos and been like, ‘I need to look like that if I want to be a success. Never, I don’t want to be some skinny mini with my tits out. I really don’t want to do it."
And that's why her fans love her.
Adele is beautiful and most of all she is talented, whether she is bending to the pressures of Hollywood or if Vogue took it too far, she couldn't have said it better.
In a Rolling Stones interview and to editor Touré, "I love seeing Katy Perry's boobs and bum. Love it. But that's not what my music is about. I don't make music for eyes. I make music for ears."
That you do, Adele and you're still amazingly beautiful while doing it.
