Adele Gets Candid About Body Image Issues: 'I Don't Let Them Rule My Life'
By Zach Seemayer
Despite immense acclaim, 10 GRAMMY awards and over 20 million albums sold worldwide, Adele recently admitted that she still struggles with body image issues -- but she knows how to keep things in perspective.
Sitting down for a "Town Hall" interview on SiriusXM on Monday, the "Hello" singer opened up about her struggles with positive self-image, and how she's maintained a positive attitude.
"I do have body image problems, for sure. But I don't let them rule my life at all," Adele shared.
The 27-year-old singer -- whose latest album, 25, comes out Nov. 20 -- explained that, with a little perspective, it's easy to remember that her problems don't compare to those faced by many others across the globe.
"There's bigger issues going on in the world than how I might feel about myself," Adele shared.
On top of everything, Adele says she respects and appreciates the importance of individuality, which brings her comfort when she doubts herself.
"There's only one of you, so why would you want to look like everyone else?" Adele said. "Why would you want to have the same hair style as everybody else and have the same opinions as everybody else?"
Recently, Adele appeared on BBC Radio's Chris Evans' Breakfast Show, where she revealed that her young son doesn't really like her music, so she's stuck singing him all the children's classics. Check out the video below to hear more from the best-selling songstress about her son's taste in music.
