Lady GaGa wonders why we aren’t talking about “fat” Adele
LADY GaGa wants to talk about Adele. Lady G sees Adele as the benchmark for weighty, female singers. You, like most people, might not give a gnat’s chuff for how much a singer weighs. GaGa seems preoccupied:
“I think women are just, for no reason, wretched to each other all the time, and I don’t think they use clothes or men or perfume or make-up or anything more than they use anything else. We should all make an effort to be nice to one another all the time.”
“I’ve realised I don’t have to do very much anymore but make music, because my fans do it all for me. They carry the message so far. Ever since they saw how much Born This Way could affect people, they wanted to do more and have that sort of space of kindness and compassion. I was acutely aware of some photos on the internet – my mum called me and was like, “Did you gain weight?” – everybody was telling me about it, and I didn’t really care. But when I heard it was on the news, where they talk about wars, the economy crashing and the election – I just thought, ‘This is f*cking ridiculous.’ I mean, what kind of example is that to a young girl sitting at home? I thought, well I don’t really care if they think I’m fat, because, quite honestly, I did gain about 30 pounds. Adele is bigger than me, how come nobody says anything about it? She’s so wonderful and I think her confidence is something I have to match. She has set the bar very high for a lot of woman. I need to be a confident woman and just say politically active things when I can that are helpful to young people.”
Good old , Adele, she sets the bat high because she is “fat”. How’s that for nice? You might be Born This Way, ladies, but be prepared for other women to pass a lot of comment on you.
As for Lady GaGa’s fans… Well, you can’t legislate for everyone:a
Karl Largefeld opined:
“The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat…”
