‘Someone Like You’ hit maker Adele on mission to slim down

Washington: Adele wants to lose weight and is reportedly on a fitness routine to drop two dress sizes before summer.

Having shed several pounds after undergoing surgery on her vocal chords last year, the ‘Someone Like You’ hit maker has also quit smoking and is said to been keen to continue her good work.

“Adele has found so much more energy now she’s quit smoking. She really wants to get healthier, now that she’s halfway there,” Contactmusic quoted a source as telling Sun newspaper.

“She had always been curious about taking up Pilates but until recently there just hadn’t been any time,” the source added.

Last month, fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld came under fire after branding Adele a “little too fat”, but the 23-year-old singer insists she would never lose weight for anyone other than herself.

“I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that,” she told People Magazine.

“I’d lose weight if I was an actress and had to play a role where you’re supposed to be 40 lbs lighter, but weight has nothing to do with my career. Even when I was signing a contract, most of the industry knew if anyone ever dared say lose weight to me, they wouldn’t be working with me,” she added.
