The Grammy winner, almost to be engaged to boyfriend Simon Konecki, said she has always felt confident that she could be successful in her own skin.
“I’ve never seen magazine covers and seen music videos and been like, ‘I need to look like that if I want to be a success’,” she told CBS News.
“I’ve never seen pictures of hot men and thought, ‘I have to change what I look like if I want to be with them’. I don’t even need to if I want to sell more records. It’s not stopping me from doing anything and I don’t find that kind of thing attractive.
“I don’t want to be some skinny Minny with my t*ts out. I never think, ‘Oh I’m plus size… I’m so much bigger than other artists out there’. Exploiting yourself sexually is not a good look.”
Adele added that she still cannot come to terms with the popularity of her “selfish” 21 album.
“I find it quite difficult to think that there’s about 20 million people listening to my album that I wrote very selfishly to get over a break-up,” she confessed.
“So it’s just a little odd to me that so many people are interested in that and want to cry to it, or want to feel strong to it, or whatever.”
That’s a strong women that stands up for what she believes in. Team Adele!
