It’s been a while since anyone has seen or heard from Adele, and that’s probably because she’s been kicking her own ass in the gym and shedding loads of flab which has resulted in a brand new look she showed off earlier this week.

Adele shared this photo on Instagram to celebrate her 32nd birthday last night and also to give props to first responders and essential workers doing their thing during the pandemic:
Wow, big up Adele! The amazing part is that even something as worthy of praise as Adele losing all that weight has sparked a whole bunch of arguments on Twitter. Seems some people believe that congratulating Adele is re-enforcing negative body ideals. Sigh…
I see that Adele is trending because people are saying how gorgeous she is since she lost weight. Y’all, we’ve been over this…
Your weight doesn’t determine your beauty. Your appearance doesn’t determine your beauty. The number on the scale doesn’t make you worthy or unworthy.

please stop saying Adele had a “glow up” we have no idea what her health was/is like and this is just reinforcing the “skinny ideal” or the concept that the skinnier you get the prettier you get

Can we please not celebrate Adele for losing weight like it’s the ultimate achievement? The news articles & tweets are disgusting 😬

To my fellow fats who are looking at everyone telling Adele how beautiful she is now she’s skinny – you’re valid, beautiful and celebrated at the weight you are NOW. You don’t need an “Adele” moment to feel validated. You can achieve and be whatever you want to be RIGHT NOW.

It’s so depressing. I see so many celebrities [who claim to be activists/fighters for human rights] telling her how amazing she looks and I have lost all hope in humans. Women will NEVER be good enough unless we are a size 2 and stay silent. It’s disgusting.

Jesus. Can’t you just let everyone be happy for the girl for 2 minutes and then move on with our lives? Losing all that weight is a great accomplishment that has probably prolonged Adele’s life and will allow her to enjoy it more. Imagine if Adele turned up with this new look after working so hard to achieve it and nobody congratulated her on it? That would just be weird and unnatural.
Anyway, let’s hope her pipes are still in working order. I know she’s not short on cash but maybe now she can finally spend a little less time in the gym and more in the studio.
