It doesn't strike me as much different from how male artists are often portrayed on album covers/promo stuff, e.g.:







As much as I can remember, more female serious artists (e.g. Alanis Morisette, Sarah McLachlan, Tracy Chapman) are also often portrayed similarly. On their stuff. Seems women can't win if using their appearance as a selling point undermines their ability, but not using it means they've got something to hide.

I don't think it's too surprising that people get funny about comments about a female artist who, in an industry many object to for their marketing based on appearance (and particularly their portrayal of females), is successful for her 'talent'/in spite of her image.

That and defensive fans are defensive, as shown any time someone makes an off-colour Michael Jackson comment.

(For the record, I'm not an Adele fan. And I don't know what her weight/health status actually is, but whilst she certainly isn't a thin girl, I wouldn't really call her obese from recent pictures I've seen.)

I like Adele. After Mark Duggan, she's probably the most influential person to come out of Tottenham in years.

Adele is not fat. she's pretty normal, dammit!

Why are citizens of the most obese nation in the world so eager to label people 'fat'?

That is so stupid. She has an amazing talent and voice. Why would people like her more because of her weight ?

I think people like her because she sings what everyone else is merely thinking.
