Did Someone Just Compare Adele To Shrek’s Princess Fiona?!
Adele is a legend in the music industry, and at the recent 59th Grammy Awards she won five awards including album of the year.
However, Adele didn’t have a perfect evening she was the subject of internet trolls who compared her appearance on the night to that of Shrek’s Fiona. Adele has reacted and she isn’t happy. She reacted whilst performing in Perth, Australia at her sold out show. Adele has this to say; ‘I don’t f***ing care. It was Givenchy Couture!’ ‘I don’t f***ing care. It was Givenchy Couture’:
The award winning singer wasn’t really fazed by the mean messages and had a message for the internet trolls; ‘they can say what they want’. She told of her critics by telling them the story; ‘Before the Grammys I had this dress right, I wore this green dress, everyone said I looked like Fiona from Shrek. They did.’
One twitter user said; ‘Did @Adele borrow that green dress from Fiona of #Shrek?’ another user said; ‘I like Adele, but she is seriously channelling Princess Fiona in that green gown #GRAMYYs #shrek.’ Adele said she worked hard to fit into her dress, ‘I worked out. Obviously, I’m a large lady and I like eating food very much, but I was working out twice a day to fit into that Givenchy dress because it was quite tight. I was working out twice a day to fit into that Givenchy dress’.
Adele has never been shy to say how she feels and although she wasn’t offended by what people had to say that doesn’t mean she’s okay with it. During her performance in Australia, she told the 65,000-strong crowd that; ‘It’s so hot the weight is going to fall off of me on this tour. The sweat is dripping down my thighs.’
We’ve been given many platforms to express how we feel about anything and everything and it’s often abused. Just because you can state every opinion you have doesn’t mean you should. Body shaming is something that isn’t okay in any situation and to take stomp on someone’s evening because you don’t agree with the way they dressed or how they look.
