I’ll only diet if I can’t do it; Adele hits back at weight critics

SINGER Adele has hit back at critics who ridicule her weight — saying she would only diet if it affected her sex life.

The 24-year-old has revealed she is perfectly happy to be a size 14-16 and does not worry about any unflattering comments.

Adele said: “I read a comment on YouTube that I thought would upset me — ‘Test pilot for pies’ — but I’ve always been fine with it. I would only lose weight if it affected my health or sex life, which it doesn’t.”

Earlier this year designer Karl Lagerfeld criticised her, saying: “She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice.”

He later apologised for the remarks.

And singer Lady Gaga hit back at comments that she had gained weight by saying Adele was bigger than her.

The Grammy award-winning singer, who became a mum for the first time last month, talks about the issue in her book Adele: The Biography, published this week.

She also tells about her early years, the sacrifices made by her mother and her affection for love songs.

She says: “When I was a girl, I loved love songs, the ones about horrible relationships. Ones that made you cry.”

But Adele, who lives with boyfriend Simon Konecki, 38, fails to name the man who inspired bestselling album 21, just saying: “He was older, he was successful.”
