On No Make-Up Adele

November 4, 2015

by Eric Darnell Pritchard

Adele Adkins insists upon coming to collect the very few edges we have left. Last week she did an old school, Harry Potter “avradacadavra” curse on our ENTIRE life, first with an open letter apologizing for being away from us so long:

Around the same time she appeared as the latest cover model for i-D Magazine which I posted about here, serving us the cat eye of life, and I was ALREADY ready for her to leave me alone, leave her album at my doorstep, and just go away.  She’s too damn amazing. I can’t take it anymore. But of course, whereas normal people know to go have a seat when they slay the entire Universe in just a matter of days, Adele is like NAH! let me revive them JUST so I can kill them again. And so within days of saying I am sorry I won that Oscar and disappeared on ya’ll, she shows up on our iTunes like “Hello”  ?

So, yesterday when I heard she was on the cover of Rolling Stone I was like, nope not looking. She will not do this to me again. Why is she in my mind this much and it hasn’t even been a full two weeks since that damn open letter? Do I need to charge her rent for living up in my head and my heart in this way? Not looking. Not ON TODAY. Welp, I looked anyway and while I do not regret it, my soul does. Because no make-up Adele is just as (if not even more) gorgeous than make-up Adele. Here are the receipts:

Now can we all go back to our business. Of course not. We have a magazine cover to obsess over the rest of the week? Thanks, Adele. Ugh. *Wall slides*

Adele Returns, and on latest i-D Magazine

October 28, 2015

She’s baaaa-aaack! And on the cover of the latest issue of i-D Magazine. The photo is, of course gorgeous. My only wish – and this is not a critique of i-D because they generally do mostly feature only head shots of their cover subjects (see a previous post I did about their gorgeous Rihanna cover) – is that fashion magazines in general would stop only photographing ‪#Adele‬ in head shots and show her wonderful, voluptuous, full figure. I think this would set an important precedent for featuring plus size women on fashion magazines in general, and hopefully more often. Not doing so sends a bad message about body type, beauty and plus size women, and that’s not a message anyone should want to send. ‪
