Does Adele look amazing? Yes
Did Adele look amazing before? Yes
You can celebrate how she looks without making it seem like there was a problem with her weight before.
You can also stop shaming people who are genuinely happy for her and accusing them of fat shaming.— Fèminist Wítçh (@DonCorleAnn) May 6, 2020

Wow. Does she look different! I think I'd not recognize her as Adele if I walked by her! Of course, she was gorgeous at whatever weight. Her gift for song is amazing, regardless of how much she weighs.— Diane Y M 🔄⚜️🍑🍷In vino veritas🍷 (@Armenua) May 6, 2020

If you’re only just realising that #Adele looks stunning, then you’ve clearly had your eyes shut the past decade...

Adele was gorgeous when she was full figured, and she's gorgeous now. And like my girl Jennifer Hudson, her body transformation is not her only achievement. Happy birthday, girl! 🎂🎈🎉🎊🎁 #Adele pic.twitter.com/8OqqcjFAN0— Nadiya Edwards (@Notzi81) May 6, 2020
