NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Rumor has it Adele has been severely Photoshopped on the cover of Vogue magazine.
The cover features the voluptuous English singer in a low-cut dress with her face and waist looking significantly thinner than the night she swept the Grammy Awards.
Her fans aren’t impressed.
“If you’ve ever seen Adele at all, you’d know that there was something wrong, because no one changes like that overnight unless they’ve had surgery,” one woman told 1010 WINS’ Sonia Rincon.

“Although I think she looks pretty it doesn’t really look like her,” a fan said. “At the Grammys she looked awesome and you don’t need to change it.”
“It’s very nice but it’s not real, she just looks fake,” one woman in Midtown said.
Many find the alleged retouching unnecessary.
“I think she’s beautiful so I think they should just keep it true to who she looks like for real not what society feels she should look like,” one fan said.
“I think it’s unfortunate that in order to sell magazines we have to change how someone looks and pass that off as acceptable,” another fan said.
Fans have also taken to voicing their opinions on the Vogue website.
“”Thanks for this excellent interview, the best one I’ve read so far, that depicts her not only as a singer but as a person.
However, the Cover photo is the opposite contrary, that’s the worst picture of Adele I’ve seen. Frankly, I can’t seem relate to it and I just hope that it hasn’t been much photoshopped. Adele is a larger than life personality and this just doesn’t do her justice,” one reader wrote.
Adele recently said in an interview with “60 Minutes” that she’s never looked at videos and magazines and felt like she’s had to conform to an image to be successful.
