The pregnant ‘Someone Like You’ hitmaker has slammed her chart rivals – who include Rihanna, Madonna and Lady Gaga – who strip off in their videos to promote themselves and insists most female singers look very different in real life to how they look on screen.
She said: “They don’t look how they do in magazines or videos. I have seen them up close.
“Exploiting yourself sexually is not a good look. I don’t find it encouraging.”
Adele has always had a fuller figure but she insists she would never go on a diet or change her image to try and be more successful.
The 24-year-old singer – whose last album ’21′ has sold over 23 million copies worldwide – prefers to just let her music define her.
She is quoted as saying: “I have never seen magazine covers and music videos and thought, ‘I need to look like that to be a success.’
“To sell more records I don’t need to go that. I just stand there and sing. I’m not worried that I’m a ‘plus size’ and so much bigger than other artists.
“No matter what you look like the key is to be happy with yourself.”
