hurt her feelings during a new interview with British Vogue.

The “Hello” singer had cover story interviews in both American and British Vogue ahead of her upcoming fourth album.

Last year, an image of Adele celebrating her 32nd birthday went viral after many people commented on her weight loss.

Adele addressed these comments about her body in an interview with British Vogue this week after losing 100 pounds over a two-year period.

“My body’s been objectified my entire career,” she told British Vogue. “It’s not just now. I understand why it’s a shock. I understand why some women especially were hurt. Visually I represented a lot of women. But I’m still the same person.”

She added that the worst part of that situation was: “The most brutal conversations were being had by other women about my body. I was very fucking disappointed with that. That hurt my feelings.”

The viral image of Adele celebrating her 32nd birthday sparked a debate about fatphobia. At the time, freelance writer, Melissa Blake said that praising Adele’s weight loss implied that “fat is bad” and that beauty is determined by weight.

In her American Vogue cover story, Adele also spoke about the constant discussion about her body.

“People have been talking about my body for 12 years. They used to talk about it before I lost weight. But yeah, whatever, I don’t care,” she said. “You don’t need to be overweight to be body positive, you can be any shape or size.”

She added: “People are shocked because I didn’t share my ‘journey.’ They’re used to people documenting everything on Instagram, and most people in my position would get a big deal with a diet brand. I couldn’t give a flying fuck. I did it for myself and not anyone else. So why would I ever share it? I don’t find it fascinating. It’s my body.”

“And also, that whole thing of like, ‘Gets Revenge Body’… Oh my god. Suck my dick!” she continued before laughing. “It’s ridiculous. I think it’s that people love to portray a divorced woman as spinning out of control, like, ‘Oh she must be crackers. She must’ve decided she wants to be a ho.’ Because what is a woman without a husband? It’s bullshit.”

In her interview, Adele also said that she had spent more time with her trainer than anyone else in the last three years and she got “addicted” to working out so that she wouldn’t feel anxious.
