Adele has this message for people who pressure moms to breastfeed — “Go fuck yourselves.”
The British pop star didn’t mince her words when speaking out about the issue during her show at London’s O2 Arena on Tuesday night.
Video going viral over the weekend (below) shows her posing for pictures on stage when a fan asks her about the topic:
“It’s fucking ridiculous,” replies Adele. “And all those people who put pressure on us, you can go fuck yourselves, alright? Because it’s hard. Some of us can’t do it. I managed about nine weeks with my boobs.”
The “Hello” singer, mom to 3-year-old son Angelo with partner Simon Konecki, later told the audience new mothers shouldn’t be embarrassed about not being able to breastfeed and should feed their children in the best possible way.
“All I wanted to do was breastfeed and then I couldn’t and then I felt like, ‘if I was in the jungle now back in the day, my kid would be dead because my milk’s gone,'” she added.
During the same show, she also said Mariah Carey “should be in the Bible,” and paid tribute to Brussels following the terror attacks by singing “Make You Feel My Love” as the crowd held up cell phone lights in solidarity.
