Adele doesn’t think artists should be using sex to sell records

The singer may have taken a shot at Lady Gaga by saying she doesn’t like artists who feel the need to expose their bodies — a day after Gaga did just that.


Singer Adele sat down to talk with British paper The Sun and seemed to be taking a shot at Lady Gaga, who recently posted photos of herself in only her bra and underwear. Adele loses respect for artists who sell their sexuality rather than their music.

“I’ve seen them up close and they don’t even look like that,” Adele told the paper. “Exploiting yourself sexually is not a good look. I don’t find it encouraging.”

The 24-year-old considers herself plus size but said even if she were thinner, she wouldn’t use her sexuality the same way some other artists do.

“I just stand there and sing,” she said. “I’m not worried that I’m a ‘plus size’ and so much bigger than other artists.”

Lady Gaga admits to eating disorder >>

The singer doesn’t mention Gaga by name, but Lady Gaga posted the stripped-down photos of herself just yesterday. This came after people started talking about her weight gain and her mention of an eating disorder.

Although Adele seems like she might be slamming Lady Gaga, her words may actually be offering the fellow singer since some advice.

“No matter what you look like the key is to be happy with yourself,” she said.

The eight-time Grammy winner is having a baby with her fiance and is happy with herself. She announced her pregnancy just a few months ago and seems completely comfortable in her body. In 2011, she spoke with Vogue UK about any body issues she has.

“I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down,” she said via the Huffington Post. “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.”
