Singer Adele hits back at critics over her weight issues. The Grammy award winner said that she would only shed some kilos if it is affecting her sex life. The 24-year-old also made a statement saying she is happy in her skin and doesn't take unflattering comments personally.
“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", Adele told The Sun.
Interestingly, Adele has written about this issue in her book Adele: The Biography. She also talks about her early years in the book, reports The Sun.
The Rolling In The Deep singer has been recently criticised by her fellow singer Lady Gaga, who called Adele bigger than herself. Also, earlier this year, fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld said Adele is a little too fat. He later apologised.
