Adele Canceled North American Tour Because She Was Told to Lose Weight?
Honestly, we doubt it.
After all, only two months ago Adele told Rolling Stone, "My life is full of drama and I won't have time to worry about something as petty as what I look like," she tells the magazine. "I don't like going to the gym. I like eating fine foods and drinking nice wine. Even if I had a really good figure, I don't think I'd get my tits and ass out for no one."
But the rumor that's been going around says that it wasn't laryngitis that forced Adele to cancel her recent North American tour--it was a label executive who told her to lose weight.
Adele, 23, apparently suffers from extreme anxiety and gets panic attacks, so performing in front of increasingly larger crowds has made the condition worse.
According to the story,
She's told friends she's gotten so nervous on stage, her throat would literally close up. "The pressure on Adele... has been immense," says the source. "She was sitting in her hotel room in Santa Monica on her own, crying."
The added pressure placed on her because of her weight has only made her more anxious and uncomfortable. "Adele sees herself as just a normal girl from London, and she felt bullied and like a fish out of water in LA. She just wanted to go home," the source tells Star.
We call BS to this rumor. No one with a voice like that would let someone bringing her down stop her.
