Adele: 'Would I be just as successful if I wasn't plus-size?'

Adele is convinced her size has helped turn her into an international pop sensation, because she reminds everyone of themselves.

The Hello singer admits she's curious to know if she would still be as successful if she was thinner.


"Would I show my body off if I was thinner?" she muses to Rolling Stone. "Probably not, because my body is mine. But sometimes I'm curious to know if I would have been as successful if I wasn't plus-size.


"I think I remind everyone of themselves. Not saying everyone is my size, but it's relatable because I'm not perfect, and I think a lot of (famous) people are portrayed as perfect, unreachable and untouchable."


"I've been asked 'Would you do Playboy?' so many f**king times, it's ridiculous," she adds. "Is that because I'm a woman or because I'm fat?"
