“Beauty is when you can appreciate yourself. When you love yourself, that’s when you’re most beautiful.”    ~Zoe Kravitz


Love her or hate her (what’s NOT to love about her), Adele has become a role model to so many young ladies and women out there. Though she would be the first to acknowledge her insecurities; while smashing our reality of what sells music! Adele has proven, that though her voice has won her many fans, her acceptance of body image and style has won her accolades.

Adele might be sad for any number of reasons, but there’s one thing she doesn’t let get her down — body image.
“I do have body image problems, for sure, but I don’t let them rule my life at all,” she said on Sirius XM. “And there’s bigger issues going on in the world than how I feel about myself and stuff like that. I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down,” the singer told the magazine. “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.”

In 2012, Adele swept the Grammy Awards, taking home six wins, including Album of the Year.  In 2013, Adele won her seventh Grammy for best Pop Solo Performance for her hit single “Set Fire to the Rain.” That same year, the singer won a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for “Skyfall,” the theme song for the 2013 James Bond film of the same name.

 

On 14 October, “Skyfall” rose to number 2 on the UK Singles Chart with sales of 92,000 copies bringing its overall sales to 176,000, entering the Billboard Hot 100 at number 8, selling 261,000 copies in the US in its first three days. This tied “Skyfall” with Duran Duran’s “A View to a Kill” as the highest-charting James Bond theme song on the UK Singles Chart; a record surpassed in 2015 by Sam Smith’s “Writing’s on the Wall”.
