Adele has hit out at female stars including Lady Gaga and Madonna for using sex to sell their records.
The pregnant chart topper, whose weight has been the subject of jibes, said her career was all about the music and not about her body. The Someone Like You singer, 24, insisted even if she looked like a supermodel her clothes would stay on.
When asked about stars such as Gaga, and Madge, who strip to their undies or simulate sex in their videos, Adele said: “They don’t look how they do in magazines or videos. I have seen them up close. They don’t even look like that. Exploiting yourself sexually is not a good look. I don’t find it encouraging.”
Adele is also the first female artist to have three singles in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time, and the first female artist to have two albums in the top five of the Billboard 200 and two singles in the top five of the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously.
