Rihanna says Adele is ‘confident and content’ after seven stone weight loss
- December 02, 2020
The Work singer, 32, also added how “incredible” the Hello singer, who reportedly rejected £40million worth of diet endorsements, looked both before and after her weight loss, which she embarked on last year.
Speaking about her friend’s weight loss, she said: “Adele looked incredible before the transformation and she looks incredible now but you can see how happy she looks.”
Rihanna also revealed she feels Adele’s lifestyle transformation is for herself and no one else.

The singer added: “It’s obvious the transformation was for her and not to impress anybody – and I am just happy that my friend looks so confident and content.”
Adele, who recently gave fans a glimpse of her stunning mansion, and Rihanna have been close friends for more than ten years now, with Rihanna revealing in 2012 that she attended the BRITS to “stalk Adele”.
She said at the time: “It was nothing about the awards or the performance for me it was just to see Adele again.
“She doesn’t know the depth of my affection. She has no idea. The last album 21 spoke to me so much.”

Meanwhile Adele looked back on the first time she met singer Rihanna as she told Time magazine: “I actually can’t remember the first time I met Rihanna; I was probably numb from the shock of it…
“Whenever I’ve met her, she’s been the most gracious, loyal and funny goofball of an icon. She glows like when someone’s taken a picture with a flash and you’re dazed for a few minutes after.

“But it’s also very clear in that glow that she genuinely doesn’t give a f**k; she’s fearless and full of all the right kind of attitude to be everything that she is and will be forever.”
Adele first stunned fans with her weight loss as she shared a snap of herself at Drake’s birthday party last year.

As the stunning star shared the image of herself on Instagram, she made reference to her split from Simon Konecki in the caption.
She quipped: “I used to cry but now I sweat” followed by a laughing face emoji.
Adele has since stayed quiet about her transformation but recently made a joke about her new look as she presented Saturday Night Live.
As she made her hosting debut on SNL on 24 October, Adele joked about her weight loss as she said: “And, I know I look really, really different since you last saw me. But, actually, because of all the covid restrictions and travel bans I had to travel light and only bring half of me and this is the half that I chose!”
