Peep British belter Adele on the cover of Vogue’s October. Absolutely stunning. The feature, which sees the full-figured Grammy winner slam the industry’s thrust towards slimmer artists, is the latest in a string of high-profile promo spots for the 23 year old. More after the jump:
The voluptuous star jokes in the magazine that she is “the face of full-fat Coke” before going on to discuss the fad diets of celebrities.
She said: "I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs and how it wears them down. And I don’t want that in my life. "I have insecurities, of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me."
Over the weekend, Adele hinted that she would be recording the theme tune for the new James Bond film when she appeared on Jonathan Ross’ new chat show.
The presenter asked her when she would be recording new material and she replied:"I’m going back in the studio in November. Fingers crossed." After Ross pressed her on it, she said: "Well, this is actually a theme, what I’ve got to do. Wow, that’s really giving something away." She then began to backtrack:"No, it’s a concept. One song." Currently ill with a chest infection, Adele has been forced to postpone the first two dates of her UK tour. The singer has pulled out of the performances in Plymouth and Bournemouth until a later date.
In a blog on her website, Adele wrote:"Sorry about the first two shows I’m as useless as a slug right now. "I’ve had a rotten cold since I got home earlier this week and was hoping it wouldn’t make its way into my chest. "But unfortunately it has and it’s leaving me breathless and I can’t hold any of my notes when I sing and I don’t sound like myself either because I’m all bunged up and croaky."
She added:"I’d rather not do a show than not do a good one for you. I have all day today, tomorrow and Tuesday to get better without having to sing or really do anything so fingers crossed I’ll be better."
The remainder of Adele’s tour is due to go ahead as planned. The October issue of Vogue is on sale from Thursday 8th September.
