Pretty much everyone has had something to say about Adele’s body since she posted a current picture of herself to Instagram. And because Adele continues to look different, body-wise, the general conversation is about Adele is gorgeous no matter what size she’s currently wearing, that her new look shouldn’t be considered an upgrade, and that Adele is no better off skinnier than she is when she was thicker. Except according to Sharon Osbourne, current-day Adele is definitely happier and likes herself more than old Adele.
Page Six says that Sharon got into it during Tuesday’s episode of The Talk, and she said the kind of stuff that no doubt has body positivity types thinking, “Sharon, please talk less.” Sharon says she can speak from experience as someone who has previously weighed more in the past as she weighs now. The only person who is technically qualified to speak on Adele’s body is Adele herself, or maybe her doctor. But Sharon decided to go there regardless. Even though she didn’t really have to. We already know that Adele’s different body is the result of eating more “real food” and cutting back on the booze. Adele also said in an interview four years ago that she cut back on booze and quit cigarettes because she wanted to be healthy for her son, Angelo. So essentially, Adele made a lifestyle change. The End. Still, here’s what unofficial body and mental health expert Sharon thinks of Adele’s new body.
“I totally understand with Adele. It was her time to lose weight that’s all in her journey and her life. She must have felt, you know what, I am going to try and lose weight for wherever reason – health, I am sure. She looks absolutely fantastic. I am happy for her and everybody should be happy for her, because it was her choice. She didn’t do it for anybody else but herself. And so everybody should be happy for her.”
Ok that’s generally pretty inoffensive, nut then Sharon quickly undid any body-based goodwill by more than implying that Adele is probably happier now, because she doesn’t look in the mirror and see a bigger body staring back at her.
“When these women say that they are really happy in their body, I don’t believe them. My body was really, really big. But I wasn’t happy. Sure on the surface, but at night in bed alone I was very unhappy…[I was] comfortable when I was with bigger women. I felt like we had something in common. We never spoke about it, but there was this underlying connection we had and I always felt like that.”
Sharon adds that she used her weight as a shield, and that being heavier made it so every guy was a “friend,” and no woman was “threatened” by her presence. For reference, this is the person Sharon is referring to:

I understand if the Sharon Osbourne of today looks back on Sharon Osbourne of the past and struggles to suppress a deep dry heave, but that’s not everyone’s experience, and we definitely don’t know if that’s how Adele feels about her current body situation. And I know this may come as a shock to Sharon, but yes – some women (and men) are happy living in the body they’ve got, whether it be fat, skinny, or in between. So yeah, her opinion was a bit questionable. But I do honestly believe her when she says that she no longer lies in bed at night feeling unhappy. Now when she lays her head down and turns off the lights, she drifts happily to sleep. After all, you can’t stare into a 25x magnifying mirror and scrutinize every last inch of your face for Botox target zones in the dark!
