Remember when Adele first broke onto the scene -- the songstress is such a legend, it seems like eons ago now -- and lots of people couldn't look past the fact that she didn't weigh 100 pounds? Oh, they raved about her voice, because how could you not, but somewhere, after praising her talent and swearing they loved her music, they couldn't help themselves and had to make some not-so-nice comments about her body. I'm looking at you, Karl Lagerfeld and Joan Rivers, but too many bloggers, reporters, and ordinary people to mention judged her physical appearance pretty harshly, too.
Well, guess what? Adele doesn't really care what we think. And she doesn't need to prove to the world that even cosmetics giant L'Oreal thinks she's pretty. And to showcase her point, she just turned down buckets of money and the chance to be "professionally beautiful" as opposed to just plain old beautiful.
