Kelly Clarkson talked about Adele's weight loss journey and her own experiences in the entertainment industry

The famous Adele stunned her fans with her incredible weight loss journey. The singer was on a heavier side when she began her music career. Despite the pressure, she didn't let weight come in between her dreams. Adele has been extremely successful with her growth in the music industry. However, recently her birthday pictures revealed how the singer has lost immense weight. Singer Kelly Clarkson was asked about Adele's weight loss and the pressure women face in the entertainment industry.

 
Clarkson said, "I’ve had this discussion with many females in the industry. I felt more pressure from people actually when I was thin, when I was really thin and not super healthy because I just was worn out, just working so hard and not keeping healthy habits. But I felt more pressure. It was more of magazines shoved in front of you and, ‘This is what you’re competing with and we’ve got to compete with it.’ I can’t compete with that. That’s not even my image. That’s not who I am. That’s who they are. We’re all different and it’s okay."
 
Speaking about the fellow singer Clarkson also said, "Even like you said, with Adele, I saw pictures of her too. I met Adele a long time ago and that girl is like a goddess. I don’t care what kind of weight she’s holding down; you walk in the room and she’s like a force, just physically captivating. If someone wanted to do it for themselves and for their health but that doesn’t change how many times I listened to her record."
 
She informed how the stress to maintain a certain body type is definitely there but some celebrities simply choose to ignore it. She talked about her experiences, saying Honestly, at my heaviest point, I was hired to be on The Voice. I got on the number one television show at my heaviest point, because it was right after I had kids and it was like they didn’t care. Paul hired me from NBC because he loved my personality, he loved that I connect with people and I’m really raw and real,"
 
Kelly emphasized that it is up to the artists to balance the pressure of the industry and not let it get to them.
