On Sunday, Adele caused mass Chrissy Tiegen awards-show-face after attempting to honour the corona-cancelled Notting Hill Carnival Festival by wearing Bantu knots and a Jamaican flag bikini. Then she doubled down on the questionable decision-making and posted a picture of that shit to Instagram. Where people could see it. Reactions ranged from cries of cultural appropriation to support to mockery. Said mockery included comparison to Tom Hanks’ wannabe Jamaican son, Chet “Haze” Hanks.
Adele has done it again. Every time she posts a new picture to Instagram, the internet melts down, only this time, it wasn’t over her skinnier body. This time Adele was dragged for looking like if Cynthia from Rugrats cosplayed as Scary Spice. 32-year-old Adele posted a picture to Instagram that was meant to commemorate the annual Notting Hill Carnival Festival in London, and in it, she wore Bantu knots and a Jamaican flag bikini. And while many accused her of cultural appropriation, I’m sure Katy Perry was calling 911 over Adele stealing her face.
Adele is seriously turning into like a fabulous, gorgeous version of Bigfoot in that we never get to see her, and when we do––always randomly and without warning––everyone loses their minds at how “unrecognizable” she is. As she worked those Sun-In-covered curls, a touch of a sunburn, and straight brows, Adele kneeled in front of her 90s marbled fireplace and a scene from “Black Is King” while wearing a matching $230 top to show her undying devotion to her God.
We’re still talking about Adele’s drunken Instagram activity from this past weekend. Which I’m completely fine with, because I love me some drunk Instagram. And some drunk Twitter. And even drunk Facebook. What can I say, I have a problem! This time we’re dissecting a comment left by 32-year-old Adele’s rumored lovah, English grimes rapper Skepta, whom she’s allegedly been humping on since late last year.
You’ll be happy to know that another photo of the elusive tear-inducing crooner, Adele, has made its way into our lives. And, some people (especially Sharon Osbourne) may be interested to know that Adele’s body continues to look a certain way. After all, there’s nothing like a woman posting a photo of herself on Instagram––with a drunken caption––only to have the comments section hijacked by congratulatory notes about weight loss. Like, ya bitch, I know I look good. Or as Adele would say, Ya dahlin’ I know I luke gorge. Why you bovered?
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.
