British singer Adele criticized celebrities as Rihanna, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga to use sex as a promotional weapon to sell their songs.
“They don’t look how they do in magazines or videos (…) I have seen them up close. They don’t even look like that. Exploiting yourself sexually is not a good look. I don’t find it encouraging.” said the singer.
The artist argue that music is essentially what defines a good artist.
“I have never seen magazine covers and music videos and thought: ‘I need to look like that to be a success (…) To sell more records I don’t even need to do that. I just stand there and sing. No matter what you look like, the key is to be happy with yourself.”
