You know Helen Flanagan?

Edit- Looking at the poll results it looks like 8 people need new glasses.

what an unfortunate problem I've heard the only cure is repeatedly jumping up and down, perhaps she should try?

Re: Is Adele Fat?

Not sure how I landed on this thread...then I remembered, randomly checking if someone suddenly realised they couldn't use the tickets they online-queued for back in the winter...

Adele is gorgeous - her voice, her stage personality, her spirit for life. Everything about Adele is "big" in a way that defies cheap criticism. If she were singing opera no one would think twice about her physical size - a vouce that big requires stature.

I saw her last Sunday in Oslo, front row seats - an experience now nailed on my list of top live performances ever (there are only 3 others in my 5+ decades).

Re: Is Adele Fat?

I can't stand her. Terrible lyrics, croony voice - it's just a lot of screaming.

And yeah, she's fat.

Re: Is Adele Fat?

There are other female singers who are popular solely because of their beauty, not because of the quality of their voice or their songwriting skills. (Not that you can't have both. See Taylor Swift.) That being said, Adele's voice really, REALLY stands out. I don't think she's fat, but even if she were, I'd still be willing to buy her albums.

Re: Is Adele Fat?

How is this even a thing? Why should her body size be up for discussion?

She's a singer. Her size is none of our business.

Nil, you surprise me.

I used to have one and it was only a couple of inches thick.


Now I have an Asus and it is even thinner.

Yes, she is fat but her beautiful face and voice has nothing to do with her weight.

Re: Is Adele Fat?

The most amusing aspect of this thread is the number of people climbing over each other to tell us that they had no idea who Adele was.


Was google not working back in 2012?

Cut mirfield some slack. He had two thoughts in his head, which was a new occurrence, so they both ended up in the same post.

Oh dear! I miss the last bit of the post. I agreed on the voice and lyrics, etc. her songs make me want to kill myself. My thank wasn't supporting the fat bit.

I don't know much of Adele. Just some of her song on the radio and pictures of her. She is not a tiny woman but I don't give a damn on how she looks. I think she has a pretty faces and I didn't see her whole body.

I know that Xavier Dolan a French Canadian producer did her Hello video. Didn't watch it, I heard it was very well made.
