Adele got candid about the public’s reaction to her weight loss saying,  “People are shocked because I didn’t share my ‘journey’. They’re used to people documenting everything on Instagram, and most people in my position would get a big deal with a diet brand. I couldn’t give a flying f—,” she said. “I did it for myself and not anyone else. So why would I ever share it? I don’t find it fascinating. It’s my body.”

“My body’s been objectified my entire career. It’s not just now,” she said. “I understand why it’s a shock. I understand why some women especially were hurt. Visually I represented a lot of women. But I’m still the same person.”

“And the worst part of the whole thing was that the most brutal conversations were being had by other women about my body,” she continued. “I was very f—ing disappointed with that. That hurt my feelings.”

Adele told Vogue that her weight loss didn’t change how she feels about her body or anyone else’s. “You don’t need to be overweight to be body positive, you can be any shape or size,” she said.

The singer also discussed her split from ex-husband Simon Konecki and revealed that one song on her upcoming album is “obviously about stuff that happened” in her relationship, “but I wanted to put it on the album to show Angelo what I expect him to treat his partner like, whether it be a woman or a man or whatever.”

“After going through a divorce, my requirements are sky-high. There’s a very big pair of shoes to fill,” she adds.

Adele says this album is different from her previous releases because “I realized that I was the problem. Cause all the other albums are like, You did this! You did that! F*** you! Why can’t you arrive for me? Then I was like: Oh, s***, I’m the running theme, actually. Maybe it’s me!”

“It’s sensitive for me, this record, just in how much I love it,” Adele adds. “I always say that 21 doesn’t belong to me anymore. Everyone else took it into their hearts so much. I’m not letting go of this one. This is my album. I want to share myself with everyone, but I don’t think I’ll ever let this one go.”
