Body positive Adele says its not her job to validate peoples figures

Adele says she won't take responsibility for how people feel about their own bodies after her dramatic weight loss.

The chart-topping singer shocked fans when she unveiled her seven stone slimmer figure after deciding to transform her look following her divorce from Simon Konecki.

Now the 33-year-old mum of one has admitted that she didn't feel “shocked or fazed” by how people reacted to her transformation.

Talking to US chat show host Oprah Winfrey, Adele opened up about how she feels about the pressure to be a role model based around her health choices and how she is seen by the public.

She said: "My body has been objectified my entire career, I'm too big, I'm too small, I'm hot or I'm not.

"I never looked up to anyone because of their body. I never admired anyone because they had the same hair colour as me or the same style as me."

She also confessed having too much to deal with in her own personal life to have time to worry about what other people are thinking or expecting from her.

She continued: "I'm body positive then and I’m body positive now. But it's not my job to validate how people feel about their bodies. I feel bad that it's made anyone feel horrible about themselves, I do.

"But It's not my job. I'm trying to sort my own life out, I can't add another worry and another thing to nail, I can't. "

Adele also revealed that her fitness regime led her to develop a love of lifting weights in the gym and that when she peaked at deadlifting 160lbs she told her trainers that she wanted to win an Olympic medal.

She quipped: “I’m actually an athlete, I’m not even boasting."

The songstress also hinted that if you're thinking of crossing her you should think again, because she has developed a left hook to rival Anthony Joshua.

She added: "I’m also a very good boxer, I've got a left hook that could kill you."
