The media, and anyone who knows her well, says over and over that Adele is loud, outgoing, and when she walks into a room, her presence is undeniable. So it is no surprise, with such a big personality, that she has said many things worth quoting. Everything from her weight to heartbreak, from love to family life.
So what are some of the best Adele quotes?
That is probably more a matter of personal opinion than it is a thing for the media to decide. But there are several Adele quotes that are repeated more than others.
On Her Weight and AppearanceMany of the most popular Adele quotes are specifically about her weight and her physical appearance. She has said that her weight has absolutely nothing to do with her career. It does not affect the way she sings. And since she has recently lost weight and still sings just as beautifully as before, it seems to be a valid point. And while she does not resent other starlets for their focus on appearance, she knows exactly what her music is for, “I love seeing Lady Gaga’s boobs and bum. I love seeing Katy Perry’s boobs and bum. Love it. But that’s not what my music is about. I don’t make music for eyes. I make music for ears.”
She has also said that if she was an actress, she could see the point in working hard to lose weight for a role. But she sings, and singing is not affected by how often you run laps on treadmill, “My life is full of drama and I won’t have time to worry about something as petty as what I look like. I don’t like going to the gym.” and, “I like looking nice, but I always put comfort over fashion. I don’t find thin girls attractive; be happy and healthy. I’ve never had a problem with the way I look.”
And as far as what she wears, she definitely has an inspiration for that! “I’m like Johnny Cash. I only wear black.”
On FamilyAdele also loves to talk about her family, and it shows that she truly has a sweet side in addition to her boisterous personality. She has a soft spot for her mom, especially, “Mum loves me being famous! She is so excited and proud, as she had me so young and couldn’t support me…It’s her 40th birthday soon and I’m going to buy her 40 presents.”
She has plans on becoming a doting mother herself, “In five years’ time I’d like to be a mum. I want to settle down and have a family, definitely sooner rather than later.”
On MusicThe most famous Adele quotes are probably about her music. Everybody knows Adele is famous for her heart-rending lyrics on her first two albums, and that they are inspired by an actual break-up she lived through. As she puts it, “Heartbreak can definitely give you a deeper sensibility for writing sons. I drew on a lot of heartbreak when I was writing my first album, I didn’t mean to but I just did.”
Nearly every lyric of her first two albums is a quote on the heartbreak that has so far been the catalyst in her career. But she is a writer of love songs, and in the future she refuses to write any more albums based on breakups. She says she is done being a bitter witch. Which is yet another great Adele quote.
