Notable Quotables is a weekly series featuring a great quote. Whether it’s the founder of a beloved beauty brand, an eccentric makeup artist making headlines, or even a super-stylish celebrity, our favorite tastemakers always have something worth sharing.
If there’s one woman who can bring us to tears with her voice, it’s Adele. She’s got pipes and the whole world knows it. One of the reasons we love her so much is that she doesn’t fit the “cookie cutter” extra-thin body type for pop stars. While women in the public eye will probably always have to deal with comments about their body, for Adele the focus is often on her extraordinary voice and her positive body image. Still, even the ever-confident songstress will cop to wearing Spanx on one of the most important nights of the year: The Grammys. She talked to Matt Lauer about getting a little help to fit into her dress.
"I had three or four pairs of Spanx on that night! I took a couple pairs off when I sang." —Adele
