Adele has often been criticized for her weight. However, the singer claims that her weight has never bothered her. She says that it does not affect her health or sex life, so she feels no need to change it. She has stated that she would rather eat lunch with friends than go to the gym, so she places a greater priority on relationships than on keeping fit. Other celebrities have criticized her for this stance.
