Adele and the Definition of Glamour

Ask me to name an artist that is genuinely glamorous and I'll tell you honestly that the first person that
comes to mind would be Adele. You know that singer from South London that has become a huge star in
recent years and has become one of the best selling record artists in the world? She's the adorable
woman behind the hits Rolling in the Deep, Someone Like You and Hello, among others. The one they
called fat and inappropriate for television? That's her.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines glamour as a very exciting and attractive quality. Mainstream
media has strongly suggested that examples of glamorous women are Victoria Secret Models and
beauty queens with 36-24-36 vital statistics. I wonder if you would agree if I tell you that Adele is
glamorous because of her music that touches millions through its soulful sound and meaningful
message. I wonder if you think creating good music is considered attractive. I wonder what glamour
means for you. I am really curious.

For a millenial like me who is exposed to social media, I strongly believe that glamour is not all about the
physical attributes of a person. It can also be about his or her passion for something, or his or her's
attitude towards everything.

Adele's glamour has such an impressive source. Her attitude. As per the 29-year-old singer, she never
wanted to look like models on the covers of magazines. "I represent the majority of women and I'm very
proud of that," she told People Magazine. She always insisted on being herself in an industry where
beauty equates to having a 24" waistline. She says she creates music for the ears, not for the eyes.

When asked if she ever felt insecure, Adele admitted to having insecurities too, but said she doesn't
hang out with anyome who points them out to her.

How beautiful would the world be if everyone had the same philosophy, if everyone didn't care too
much about what everyone else perceives as the standard of being beautiful.

Then no one would have to pretend to be someone they're not, or spend a lot of money to alter how
they really look like just to fit in and feel appreciated. We were not born to fit in anyway, we were born
to stand out. If we all just believed in the glamour that is innate in all of us, then the world would be a
much more genuine and peaceful place to live in.

Looking at Adele and how she promotes the perks of staying true to yourself and your principles, I have
concluded that our real glamour comes from our acceptance of who we really are, our will to pursue our
passion, our courage to inspire others and our defiance to society's misleading criteria of beauty.

There's nothing wrong with having a 36-24-36 vital statistics, but then again there's nothing wrong with
not having it too. I hope we all remember that.
