Adele, disappointed by the negative comments about losing weight: "I understand why some women, in particular, felt hurt"
The singer appeared simultaneously on the covers of Vogue America and Vogue UK this month and gave an interview in which she talked about her radical transformation, saying that she has become "addicted" to exercise.
Even though the artist lost a lot of weight and looks spectacular, she revealed that she had to endure the "brutal comments" of other women about changing her physical appearance.
"My body has been seen as an object my whole career. Not just now. I understand why it was a shock. I understand why some women, in particular, felt hurt, "the singer told Vogue America.
"I represented a lot of women, visually. But I am still the same person ", Adele added. "Other women had the worst conversations about my body. I was damn disappointed by that. My feelings hurt ", added the singer.
Asked what triggered the amazing physical transformation, which took place over a period of two years, Adele replied: “It started because of anxiety. When I was training I felt better ”.
For two years, she did rigorous weight training and circuit training sessions every day, even twice a day when her anxiety level was high.
"I realized that when I was training I had no anxiety. It was never about losing weight. I thought that if I can make my body stronger, and if I will feel and see this, then maybe one day I can make my emotions and mind stronger ", the artist revealed.
Many fans reacted on social media to the images she posted, some of them saying that they "miss" the old Adele, and others went even further and criticized her for losing weight. But Adele says that although she looks different from how the fans knew her, she is still the same person.
Many consider the time in which we live to be the best in the history of mankind due to the fact that today almost everything is available to people. We can go online wherever and whenever we want, create a non-existent person using a neural network and entrust the cleaning of our house to a robot vacuum cleaner. But today there is no such liveliness and purity of emotions that were before, and looking at photos of stars taken in the last century, you will be convinced of this.
