Adele dismisses raunchy videos and singers in skimpy outfits
Adele has hit out at rival singers who use raunchy or explicit videos to promote their music. The pregnant singer accused them of presenting a false image to their fans and of being poor role models.
"I’ve seen them up close and they don’t even look like that," Adele told The Sun, naming no names but presumably referring to performers like Rihanna, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.
Adele isn’t likely to start emulating their antics any time soon. She just doesn’t think that kind of self-exposure is dignified. "I just stand there and sing," she said. "I’m not worried that I’m a ‘plus size’ and so much bigger than other artists. No matter what you look like the key is to be happy with yourself."
Adele is taking a career hiatus while she has her baby, apart from one rather high-profile recording session. Strong rumours had suggest that she will be performing the theme tune to the latest James Bond film, Skyfall.
Adele had been involved in sessions with producer Paul Epworth, before going into the Abbey Road studios where producer Thomas Newman was putting together the Bond score. The film is on general release in October.
Joe Crilly of bookmakers William Hill is so certain that Adele will perform the theme that the company have already paid out on bets. "The way our punters were backing her, it seems as though Adele was going to be the only option to sing the Skyfall theme," he said. "We are now unfortunately shaken, not stirred by this particular Bond battering."
