Plus Sized Adele Represents

  1. The chart- topping pop star gets a finally gets a full body shot on the cover of December’s Cosmopolitan
  2. Hey gang-
    This quarter, I’m running a blog a multimedia journalism class, journalism 285.  This week we worked with a tool called Storify, which creates a kind of resource collage of Tweets, status updates, YouTube videos, Flickr posts, and other links.  Since my roommate and I wanted to know we couldn’t find the December Cosmopolitan at any of our local Albertson’s, Rite- Aids, Barnes & Nobles, or Victoria’s Secrets (what?  They should sell Cosmo, right?), I decided to investigate this controversial US cover that has Cosmo selling like hotcakes.

  4. April 15th, 2011:  Rolling Stone covers only Adele’s head & neck.
  5. November 9, 2011 1:01:22 PM EST
  6. October 2011:  British Vogue might be “adoring Adele”, but only her face.
  7. November 9, 2011 1:01:09 PM EST
  8. December 2011:  Sex sells.  But not as well as Adele.
  9. So Storify allows you to search Tweets and Facebook posts, but the only searchable status updates are ones that are already public.  Nobody’s profile is public.  You can install this “Storigy This!” button on your own Facebook to expose your friends whenever they say something relevant.

  19. Sure, she sounds like a black person and swears “more than Lil Wayne and Eminem combined”, but I was actually really surprised by the amount of African- American women impressed with Adele. You go, white girl.
  20. Reading my cosmo fav quote:”adele talks fast laughs loud and says fuck more than lil wayne and eminem combined” lol

  21. Adele’s music videos also reflect her growing autonomy in the body image department.  Several of her earlier music videos focused on actors to tell her stories. “Rolling in the Deep” had the singer sittin’ pretty in a chair (ps- am I the only one who wanted all those water glasses to explode?) Her latest installment, “Someone Like You”, actually features her walking around.  Let’s hear it for mobility.
