We’re in a cranky, cynical mood today. Because Vogue UK slapped this gorgeous picture of Adele on their cover…

… and our first thought was “Zoom in tight, Vogue! Tight as you can! Don’t you dare show an inch of her non-model-sized body! And for GOD’S SAKE, cover her chin and jawline with her hair!!!”
Yes, we’re bitches, but can you say we’re out of line for thinking that they deliberately (and clumsily) camouflaged her big-girlness? Still, at least it’s a gorgeous picture of her.
Inside, Adele is once again refreshingly not up her own ass:
On her pre-show ritual: “I puke quite a lot before going on stage. Though never actually on stage. But then, I s— myself before everything … the bigger the freak-out, the more I enjoy the show!”
On the entertainment industry’s obsession with weight: “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.”
On being single: “I do get massively distracted when I’ve got someone in my life, which I can’t afford to do right now. Besides, no one treats me as well as I do.”
How can you not love a gal who gets the cover of Vogue and then goes on about shitting and puking all over herself?
