Adele on How Being Plus-Size Has Impacted Her Success

Meghan Blalock

Adele is having a major moment right now. After surprise-releasing her latest single "Hello" just last week, the British powerhouse vocalist has broken a slew of records, including a huge one of Billboard's: hers is the first song ever to sell more than a million downloads its first week out.

Leading up to her album release on November 20, Adele covers the latest issue of Rolling Stoneand she opened up to the magazine about a number of aspects of her life, including fame, her son Angelo, and her body image. The plus-size singer has a particularly poignant and wise perspective on her size, which (unfrotunately) has long been a topic of discussion in popular media.

"Sometimes I'm curious to know if I would have been as successful if I wasn't plus-size," Adele ruminates. "I think I remind everyone of themselves. Not saying everyone is my size, but it's relatable because I'm not perfect, and I think a lot of people are portrayed as perfect, unreachable, and untouchable."

Wow. We can all stand to benefit from such a mature and enlightened view of our own bodies! Keep scrolling to shop some plus-size pieces we'd love to see Adele wear!
