Adele: why speak of the weight of the artist affects us all women?

Since its emergence and success in 2008, the singer was noted for being a plus size woman, I spent hours in television programmes explaining why your body image is not interfered with his talent, as if that has any relevance in the world, and was exposed to interviews like the one he had with CNN’s Anderson Cooper in 2017, in the one that gave all the arguments as to why your dress size should not have any importance in his career.

Is it the same with the artists in small sizes? Does the call to interview to defend himself against comments because they are too thin to have talent?

In 2012 after Adele won four Grammys, the attention was focused on the statements that he gave the deceased fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, who has to clap the moment that was happening, the singer said: “This is the moment of Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice – (This is the moment of Adele, she is a little fat, but has a beautiful face and a divine voice)”, that is to say, it was not for nothing have won four awards at the talent because everything is reduced in that he was “a little fat”.

This is one of the great problems with which society has burdened women of all size, “is cute, but,” “she sings well, but”, “is very talented, but”, “you have a beautiful face, but”, “his style is very cool, but…” “but”, “but”,”but”… any quality is insufficient because it is overshadowed by the number that throws the scale.

And then, now that Adele went down in weight what is the problem? For months the artist has been posting images in which you see that your weight has been significantly reduced. Days ago shared, via his Instagram, an image of the whole body in the that looked completely different to how we met.

These were some of the comments on social networks:
