I am happy with my figure: Adele

London: Soul sensation Adele says unlike other celebrities she is under no pressure to embark on a strict diet regime to look slim as she relies more on her talent.

The 22-year-old curvaceous singer has garnered immense popularity with her ballad-filled albums and her recent release `21` shot to the top of the UK charts, spawning two top five singles, a magazine reported.

The `Someone Like You` hitmaker insisted that she has never been asked to shed pounds or transform her looks to win more fans, as her melodious voice sells itself.

"No-one`s ever told me to lose weight or anything like that. I don`t rely on my figure to have hits. How I look has never been a big part of my life. I`ve never looked at a magazine and thought, `That`s how I need to look if I want to be successful in life," Adele said.

"If you compare the way I look to big artists like, say, Katy Perry, I`m living proof it`s all about the music because there`s nothing else I`m relying on to do well," she added.
