Popular Comedian, podcast host and UFC commentator, Joe Rogan, has defended singer Adele after some commentators actually criticized her for sharing her weight loss progress.

Adele is one of the most successful singers in the world, known for hit records such as ‘Hello,’ ‘Rolling in the Deep’ and ‘Someone Like You.’

However, the platinum-selling artist surprisingly received some backlash after sharing a photo on Instagram which revealed her incredible efforts to lose weight.

A not insignificant number of Adele’s followers criticized her for supposedly conforming to societal beauty standards, but Rogan spoke up in defense of the 32-year-old star.

During one of his May 7 podcast, alongside comedian Tony Hinchcliffe, Joe Rogan highlighted her efforts and revealed that he was surprised at the reaction, “so many women were mad when Adele lost all that weight.”

“Why wouldn’t you want to applaud someone who did something that’s really difficult to do and is now healthier, if you’re an Adele fan wouldn’t you want her to be healthier?” Rogan asked, confused by the controversy.

He later pointed out that people were too harsh to take their issues with “beauty standards” out on the Adele and added that she looked much healthier than she did before.

“The only reason why anybody would want to fight against that, when so many people, overwhelmingly, thinks she looks better, is because they don’t want to look at themselves,” he explained.

“You can’t decide that the way you look is what everybody should like,” Rogan continued, defending Adele’s decision. “People have decided worldwide that fitter, healthier bodies are more attractive, that’s just what it is. The beauty standards come from what people are attracted to.”

He claimed that while it might not be fair how beauty standards are set, it is not right to label them as a “bad thing” and called for people to stop putting “undue pressure” on stars like Adele who decide they want to better themselves in this manner.


Dixie D’Amelio tears up over painful nose surgery aftermath in BTS vlog

Dixie D’Amelio has finally released the behind the scenes vlog of her nose surgery from back in September, with the uncomfortable after-effects leaving the much loved TikTok star emotional.

Charli and Dixie D’Amelio have taken the TikTok world by storm, very much as a family unit. The sisters, along with their parents, have spread their content wings past TikTok, and into YouTube, the podcast world, and have even dabbled in beauty.

The youngest sister Charli grossed fans out in August when she released a rather gruesome video of her own nose surgery to help fix her breathing, showing a very detailed look of the doctor scraping out pieces of cartilage and septum.

About a month following Dixie received the same procedure in order to fix breathing problems that had accumulated thanks to similar injuries that Charli received. Dixie even had to call out fans who claimed she was ‘copying’ Charli for getting surgery, despite the fact that the procedure was not cosmetic.

Dixie postponed her nose surgery because she wanted to continue playing sports.

After waiting for over a month, Dixie has now finally unveiled the behind the scenes vlog of the lead up to her surgery on her YouTube channel, and it’s safe to say it wasn’t a particularly fun experience.

She included videos of the consultations between her and her surgeon, with him demonstrating that that main point of the surgery was to correct a twist in the septum that was caused by sporting incidents that led to a whopping 14 concussions.

The immediate after-effects were clearly uncomfortable, Dixie saying “I cried right after surgery because I wanted to go home so bad. And I just wanna snort, I wanna breathe in so deep but there’s cotton on my nose. And my forehead’s itchy but it’s also numb.”

In a slightly delirious video taken in the mirror, Dixie said “I keep crying and I don’t know why,” but even after an uncomfortable looking cough, continues to sing “keep your head up, it’s bedtime.”

While the star seemed in relatively light spirits initially, all things considered, things quickly took a turn for the worst the next day, when she said that “I had such a rough night trying to sleep.”

“My nose doesn’t hurt at all, but I have an awful migraine, and I get really bad migraines, so that’s just where all my pain is right now.” The TikTok star also admitted that she “couldn’t stop crying last night over my thoughts.”

However, now that time has passed since the surgery, Dixie looks to be in better spirits than ever, much to her fans’ relief. In the description of her vlog, she also thanked her surgeon Dr. Raj Kanodia for “doing such an amazing job and making me feel so comfortable from beginning to end!”

Dixie D’Amelio is a TikTok influencer with over 42 million followers on the app. She and her younger sister Charli D’Amelio have garnered a combined follower count of a whopping 137 million followers.
