Even after Adele’s former trainer rushed to defend her, Adele isn’t receiving much of a positive response to the birthday photograph she posted a few days ago. Now, plus-sized women are bringing important issues out into the limelight in order to help people understand some important facts.
To commemorate her thirty-second birthday, the British singer shared a rare Instagram photo that showed off her remarkable weight loss.
And she looks incredible.
Adele has had a long journey with her weight-loss, and most people were delighted to see her transformation, and were quick to shower her with compliments.
Regardless of her appearance, the London-born singer has been an unstoppable force in the music scene for the past decade.
19, along with her second follow-up album 21 earned her immense critical praise, and the success of both the albums cemented her firmly in the industry.
After taking a break to focus on her personal life in 2012, Adele returned back to the scene with her sensational hit “Hello.”
Shortly after, she released her next album, 25, which featured iconic songs such as “Send My Love (To Your New Lover).”
If you haven’t listened to that album, please do yourself a favor and add it to your playlist. You will not be disappointed.
Now, the singer has sold millions of songs worldwide.
Her list of achievements is outstanding, to say the least.
Adele has fifteen Grammys as well as an Oscar tucked nicely under her belt and the list is expected to grow as rumors of her next album have sparked fans interest.
She has a truly infectiously hilarious personality. If you’re looking for a down-to-earth star, Adele is it.
And, in the last year, fans have been noticing a dramatic change in her appearance.
Adele has always been gorgeous, but she always been open about how she wasn’t happy with her body…
And that’s fine.
Everyone’s allowed to have their personal goals about what they want to look like. It doesn’t take anything away from her amazing talent as a singer.
The pop icon has had a long battle with her weight, but this last year, she has really been driven to lose the pounds for good.
And the star is rarely very active on social media.
In fact, it’s rare if we get a sighting of her at all.
Which is why her most recent post has shocked fans to their core.
She is quite visibly losing weight, but her most recent update is the most eye-opening of them all.
And we must say, she is looking better than ever.
Fans are living for her new look…
And many have even begun asking if a new album is in the works… Which we are also hoping for, by the way.
Brace yourselves, you’re going to be truly shocked.
Here is the infamous and very beautiful photo.
Adele looks completely unrecognizable, yet completely amazing in her latest snap, where she dons a figure-hugging black mini-dress.
She captioned the post with: “Thank you for the birthday love. I hope you’re all staying safe and sane during this crazy time.
I’d like to thank all of our first responders and essential workers who are keeping us safe while risking their lives! You are truly our angels.”
Obviously, people have been going wild about her shock transformation.
And the photo quickly went viral, with millions of people showering the singer in compliments and praise for her incredible achievement.
Some spiteful Twitter users have been claiming that Adele’s weight-loss is a bad thing, that we “bullied” her into it, and that she looks “sick.”
It seems that some people just can’t stand the idea of a woman wanting to change her body in a healthy way.
God forbid she would ever lose weight because she wanted to.
And he has completely shut down all of these spiteful haters.
The London-based Geracimo used to coach Adele through her weight loss journey, and he has some strong words for those who have been criticizing her.
Writing on Instagram, he began:
“As Adele’s former London-based personal trainer, it’s disheartening to read the negative commentary and fat-phobic accusations questioning the genuineness of her amazing weight loss.”
He has stressed that Adele does things her way.
“In my personal experience of working with her through many highs and lows, she always marched to the beat of her own drum on her own terms. She never undermined her God-given talent in any way. She let her incredible voice do the talking, or should I say singing!”
Her goal was to be healthy.
“When Adele and I started our journey together, it was never about getting super skinny. It was about getting her healthy. Especially post-pregnancy and post-surgery. When 25 dropped and the tour announced, we had to get ready for a thirteen-month gruelling schedule. In that time, she warmed to training and made better food choices. As a result, she lost considerable weight and people took notice.”
“She embraced better eating habits and committed to her fitness and ‘is sweating’! I could not be prouder or happier for her! This metamorphosis is not for album sales, publicity or to be a role model. She is doing it for herself and for [her son] Angelo.”
“My hope is that people appreciate the hard work that Adele has done to improve herself for the benefit to her and her family only,” Geracimo wrote as he wrapped up his message. “She did not lose the weight to make others feel bad about themselves. This personal transformation has nothing to do with me or you. It’s about Adele and how she wants to live her life. She has not changed from the Adele we grew up with and have loved. There is just a little less of her to go around.”
Haley Stewart is a promoter of body confidence online and she has described the response to Adele’s new body as an issue she will not be quiet about.
“A second [after Adele’s post] I was drowning in an ocean of slim Adele pics,” she wrote. “Many of them posted next to pictures of her taken 10 years ago, when she looked a lot more like me. The message was clear: ‘This is important. She’s a better woman now. She’s more beautiful now. She’s healthier now.'”
“…I will not be quiet about body and beauty standards that continue to disproportionately adversely affect women (I cannot think of a single man who has ever had anything like this response to changes in his body). I have carefully curated a safe space online and I know that many of the people who follow me and I am following have a shared understanding of diet culture and its dangers.”
Lots of people decided to message Haley and accuse her of spreading hate, saying that she was jealous of not being able to achieve Adele’s body. A disgustingly low blow.
“And this is why people in marginalized bodies so often feel forced into silence. Because the overwhelming, publicly accepted narrative is that we are wrong. Our bodies are wrong. And us challenging this idea is immediately met with all kinds of abuse.”
“Even if you’re the most successful and talented musician of a generation – you’re still worth a bit more when you’re smaller.”
Adele, you are, and always have been, amazing. For more inspiring weight loss stories, keep scrolling…
