Adele is riding high on the success of “Hello” these days and her popularity has helped her bounce back in the limelight after her hiatus. Despite gaining popularity in the world of music, the Grammy Award-winning singer is still prone to sexist questions.

Adele recently appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone with wet hair and a no-makeup look. Now she is constantly being quizzed with questions if she will ever take up the offer of appearing on the cover of Playboy magazine too. However, Adele considers this to be a “sexist” question. She gave a befitting reply to all body-shamers and said, “Is that because I'm a woman or because I'm fat?”

The “Skyfall” singer made her stand very clear in the interview and said, "Would I show my body off if I was thinner? Probably not, because my body is mine," Adele said in her interview with Rolling Stone.

Adele did say that she sometimes wonders if she would be as successful if she were thinner. She further commented on her size by saying that she is more relatable than other people who are depicted as perfect.

Adele’s Rolling Stone cover sends out a clear message that she is in no mood to contribute in the growing sexism in the showbiz world. Adele expressed her views against racism, misogyny and sexism in the interview with Rolling Stones and said, "I'm a feminist. I believe that everyone should be treated the same, including race and sexuality."

The singer has constantly been under scrutiny for her weight and was even criticised by celebrities, including Karl Lagerfeld and Joan Rivers. But Adele has slammed her body-shamers on several occasions too. She said that she will always prioritise comfort over fashion and that she'd rather eat out with her pals than work out in a gym.

Adele's single "Hello," which was released on Oct. 23, is now the no. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. It is from her new album titled "25." "Hello" was written by Adele and Greg Kurstin.  Some of the tracks that are part of "25" are "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)," "All I Ask," "Sweetest Devotion," "Love in the Dark," "River Lea," "Million Years Ago," and "Water Under the Bridge."
