Joan Rivers To Adele: 'I Still Think You're Fat, Even If You Want An Apology!'

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueAdeleJoan RiversFitnessBody

joan rivers keeps on poking fun at adeles weight(1)

Back in February, Joan Rivers called Adele fat and even suggested that she add FRIED CHICKEN to her song, Rolling in the Deep.

And after the British songstress demanded that the snappy Fashion Police host apologize to her, Joan said 'the hell with that,' and continued to call poor Adele chubby.

In a recent interview, Miz Rivers addressed her fat jokes toward the new mommy, and said:

"She's a chubby lady who's very, very rich, and she should just calm down — or lose weight! She wanted an apology, so I took an ad out on her a–. I said, 'You are not fat.' And then I had room for a lot of other ads. Adele is beautiful and successful and has what, $100 million? Let's face reality: She's fat."

Awww! That's just mean Joan!

We understand that Adele is a wealthy lady, but that doesn't mean that you can still poke fun at her full-figured bod!!

It's one thing to make fun of fashion, but weight is nothing to play around with because it's truly a touchy subject.

Miz Rivers should be ashamed of herself!

    But she looks like.. i dont know.. shes fucked.

    Adele is perfection.

    This, coming from a woman who's head is made entirely of foam rubber?

  3. 3

    Most times I'd think, 'Leave Joan alone. She's a comedian. She's old. She might not have that long with us so let her do her thing.' But that's just mean. And a very sensitive subject.

  4. Aubrey says – reply to this


    and…….Joan Rivers isn't even a person. She is made out of plastic. Plastic that isn't even shaped into the form of an attractive person. She needs to quit her job. She is an old hag who just isn't cutting it anymore…..her job that is. Apparently she will never give up cutting into her face. Adele is a beautiful women made of flesh and blood.

    This is coming from a woman that looks likes the crept keeper. Joan, don't be jealous. Adele is fabulous.

  6. Paul says – reply to this


    It's the truth. She is fat! 99+% of the time, being fat is a choice. If it bothers you, do something about it. If it doesn't bother you, you wouldn't care what Joan Rivers says. Pretty simple.

  7. lala says – reply to this


    If Joan gets her skin stretched anymore she would turn into Lady Cassandra (early new Who).

  8. Chachi says – reply to this


    Adele is overweight but why is anyone even commenting on it? I love Joan a lot but this is out of line. What she had to say was neither witty or requested.

  9. Heather says – reply to this


    Adele is absolutely beautiful! She has an amazingly shaped body. Joan Rivers need to step away from the plastic surgeons long enough to take a good look at Adele and realize how wrong she is.

  10. Kyla says – reply to this


    Aaaaand I think you've had so much plastic surgery you're a quilt. Maybe it has also affected your brain. Do you want me to apologize for that comment? I guess I'm as petty as you are because it's not going to happen.

  11. daris says – reply to this


    Adele is beautiful! The reason why it upsets me when someone criticizes her weight is not because it's a touchy subject. We all know Adele isn't thin and she embraces that fact as well. It gets me mad because making fun of it is saying there's something wrong with her, and there isn't. Adele's body is curvy and voluptuous in my opinion, much sexier than most of anorexic Hollywood! Adele doesn't hide the fact that she's a full figured woman, obviously because she's proud of her curves. Joan shouldn't apologize for calling Adele chubby, fat, or whatever but for making it sound like there's something wrong with Adele! I could go on and on about all the things wrong with Joan!!

  12. 12

    You know, Adele has actually lost a lot of weight. She used to be much bigger, she has been losing weight. Everyone on Fashion Police are such assholes to other people, like they are so perfect.

  13. 13

    I highly doubt that Adele demanded an apology from her because she's fine with her own weight and why would she care what this dried up old hag thinks? If she even knows who JR is. I can't wait to hear that old battle axe is dead.

  14. Shotsy says – reply to this


    Well the hard fact is she may be a little chubby but Joan is a lot more ugly and old looking than she is fat. Sorry cold hard facts. I think Adele is hot, personally.

  15. 15

    Adele is FAT. Case closed…

  16. CJ says – reply to this


    The responses to Joan's jokes are amuse me.

    Is Adele fat? Yes or no? The answer is obvious, yes! The truth is the truth. Facts are facts.

    Has Joan had plastic surgery, yes or no? The answer is also obvious, yes. Unlike Adele, Joan will not deny the truth. In fact, Joan talks freely about it.

    Is is mean to tell the truth? Should we never joke about people being fat? Isn't it ironic that Joan could give damn, that the same people who complain about her calling Adele fat, are the very same people calling her plastic? Notice, Joan isn't sobbing for an apology and Adele is.

    For all those people calling Joan mean, twist yourselves into pretzels to avoid the truth. The truth can be a b**** sometimes! Deal with it.

    If you ask me, I think it's mean that I have to hear everyone whining about a simple, stupid joke.

  17. Summer says – reply to this


    But she is FAT! Why do people continue to try to make it okay to be a fat cow.

  18. Sarah says – reply to this


    Who cares if someone's fat. Comming from a person who dosnt even look human anymore I'd take it with a grain of salt. Adele's beautiful!!!! She's always graceful and sweet. Joan's just a judgmental old hag!!

  19. richard alpert says – reply to this


    Adele is overweight, but very pretty, very successfull and very rich. Joan Rivers on the other hand is slim, in a wizened old crone sort of way, but she is a past it hack whose husband killed himself rather than spend another minute with her. Adele FTW.

  20. 20

    Re: Paul – She is bloody fat! Well said Paul!
    Re: Chachi – She is in everyone's faces, That's why!
    Re: Heather – Are you bloody kidding?!
    Re: daris – Excuse me?! She demanded apology you idiot! That's not "embracing" it, is it?
    Re: CJ – Exactly!
    Re: Summer – Woot!
    Yes, she is fat! And that's the end of it!

  21. greg says – reply to this


    Why are you publishing the harrassing, stalking, insulting comments of that disgusting old hag (Joan Rivers)

  22. 22

    She is fat, even before the kid.

  23. 23

    it's time for joan to pack it in…just leave already…

  24. Gretchen says – reply to this


    I kind of love Joan's attitude about this. She acknowledges that Adele is successful, rich, talented, and even calls her beautiful. But you know what else? She's fat. I love the girl, but she is! And honestly, who cares? She's gorgeous and fat and glamorous and incredible! Let's not hold our breath for Joan Rivers to avoid finding something to criticize. If Joan wasn't making fun of Adele's weight, it would just be something else. That's kind of her jam.

    Let's all quit acting like being fat is the end of the world, or that anyone who states the obvious is a monster.

  25. Rade says – reply to this


    Where's Adam Hills when you need him…

  26. Jessie says – reply to this


    While Joan is wasting her breath about this, Adele is wasting her millions not caring!

  27. MB says – reply to this


    Adele is 125 years younger than Joan Rivers and already has more talent, and if you really want to split hairs, Adele would probably make a better comedian too.

    AND if somebody said to me, you can have sex with Adele, or Joan Rivers, I don't know about anyone else, but I'm not going to pick Joan Rivers….

  28. @v@ says – reply to this


    I remember when girls called other girls 'fat.'
    Back in grade 7.

  29. heather says – reply to this


    Reading through all the comments and I must say how hypocritical you all are. So apparently it's okay for girls to be called "too thin", "eat a cheeseburger", "gain weight" or accused of being anorexic (which is a serious thing to accuse someone of and too serious to just throw the word around" but for Joan to make a little joke about being fat (like she always does, that's her thing. She makes fun of everyone. Like family guy she makes little insults and jokes about everyone. I am not saying everyone who is overweight is a lazy person but you have to admit we make excuses as a society for people who are overweight. We address that it's "mean" to call someone fat but never mention how shameful it is to skinny shame someone and almost never tell the overweight how unhealthy it is. Adele is beautiful but is she healthy?

  30. WillowWynde says – reply to this


    Making fun of someones physical appearance is not okay. Do people honestly believe by calling Adele fat that they are alerting her to something she doesn’t know? Is it anyone’s business other than Adele’s? No. I mean seriously, what’s it to you?

  31. artie says – reply to this



  32. messygirl says – reply to this


    Adele may be overweight, but at least she isn't a plastic-looking, over-the-hill nasty shrew whose husband committed suicide rather than live with her.

  33. 33

    Re: Paul – You are seriously too narrow-minded for words. No wonder you agree with Joan Rivers. The fact that she constantly judges people on her appearance doesn't mean the stuff she says isn't hurtful, the fact that she is a "comedian" doesn't mean she should make jokes on other people's expense and the fact that she's been under the knife so many times proves that she's insecure about herself, so she should know how it feels. Maybe she doesn't care about people critising her appearance anymore but that doesn't mean she should just join in in hurting others. I remember when she bullied Elizabeth Taylor (may she rest in peace) into a depression because she gained some weight. Joan Rivers doesn't have any lady-like qualities or class to her and this more than proves it (yet again!).

  34. Fran says – reply to this


    Miss Rivers is like what 100 years old? And she looks like a surgery freak. Who cares what she thinks. Adele is hot and Rivers is like decrepid!

  35. Not funny... says – reply to this


    Joan's a bully operating under the guise of being a comedian. She's not funny, just mean.

  36. Miles says – reply to this


    I never knew who Joan is.
    I googled her I wanted to know who is she.
    Now I do know who she is.

    She is a washed up old bag who is better known for being the woman made of plastic. How low and pathetic. It's obvious that she's beyond jealous that within just few years Adele became an iconic singing legend who won 9 Grammys and an Oscar as well as a Golden Globe and became one of the best selling artists of all time and the best selling artist in the 21st century.

    Who does Joan think she is? Really. She's NOTHING! She's a woman who is literary plastic! In all people! She actually has the guts to judge someone's body figure? If I were Adele I would shove my foot right into her plastic ass.

  37. 37

    adele is so fat her song should be called 'rolling in flour' with her baker bf the only man with enough flour to impregnate her.

    joan us slipping how could u not notice adele chose a baker AS a bf… lololollllllll

  38. 38

    shes prob also demanding a apology from mcds for not giving her enough burgers in one sitting ..

  39. 39

    Adele is beautiful and fat … so what, I will focus on the beautiful part. So what, she's fat, whatever … She has a beautiful voice.

    This blog makes mention of people who are fat, or too skinny, or look different with no makeup, or have cellulite, etc. What's the difference??

  40. Rose says – reply to this


    woah joan rivers is plastic and looks like a angry bird so she cant say anything

  41. 41

    Joan needs to keep quiet. Adele is so talented and even though she is full figured she is a very pretty women.

  42. penukz says – reply to this


    Re: perez posse SUPERFAN 777 – wow! Your comment show the state of your mentality… LOW CLASS!

  43. 43

    Someone with a face like THAT shouldn't be judging anyone.

  44. Adull says – reply to this


    Wait, so is Adele NOT fat? That's like a school bus demanding you apologize for calling it a school bus. It's a fact, not a judgement.

  45. no name says – reply to this


    Adele is beautiful, fat or not. Much more beautiful than Joan ever was even her younger days. That's all I'm gonna say about that otherwise it will be too mean. People are just jealous of her talent and success so of course they criticize her, it's what jealous people do best. Get a reality check my dear, also take a good look in the mirror before criticizing other people.

  46. Adele is beautiful says – reply to this


    Maybe if her daughter Melissa was actually attractive and didn't have the face of a transexual Joan wouldn't feel the need to attack other people. I won't even talk about Joan's appearance though, no need to. Insecure or sexually frustrated??? Or both?

  47. 47

    Adele IS overweight. It's a FACT. Perez you have no problem ragging on people who smoke for ruining their lungs and if someone was too thin you would probably point that out too but when it comes to people who are fat you have a problem facing the truth.
    As for Joan, she did call Adele pretty and she does make fun of herself all the time.

  48. E. says – reply to this


    Re: Paul
    @ Paul The DIFFERENCE is….Adele can lose weight IF SHE WANTS TO….but can Joan EVER look like a 20, 30, 40 or even a 50 YEAR OLD AGAIN?…..Ummm, no.
    Why does it bother Joan to talk about someone elses weight?
    I don't care if your a 80 year old "comedian" there's no reason to be mean & being that mean is NOT funny…so what purpose does Joan have to put Adele down?
    But Joan will NEVER have the choice to look as good or young as Adele again…I think if ANYONE is "bothered" it's definitely JOAN !!!
    How sad, a jealous old lady lol

  49. 49

    I find it interesting that Joan Rivers thinks it perfectly fine to make fun of someone for their appearance. She looks like she died and was brought back to like after being buried in a pet cemetery. Really, she doesn't have any room to talk about different appearances. Her appearance is SCARY. Adele is fine with her weight, and therefore it's just ridiculous and mean-spirited to make fun of her. I'm tired of it being okay to make fun of people for their weight. It's NOT okay.

  50. Patti says – reply to this


    People need to get a grip with this 'fat' situation; at least her face isn't entirely made up of plastic and she's 100 real. In person, Adele is not big at all, she's the average woman. She doesn't need to change a thing, Joan's vision must be blurry from having her eyes pulled too tightly.

  51. F****** u Joan rivers says – reply to this


    I hate Joan rivers she's just jealous of Adele.adele has way more money than she does and she shouldnt be talking like Joan is skinny she's chubby and she's looks like the joker with all the plastic surgery

  52. Dingus says – reply to this


    Anyway, Adele is still fat

  53. michelle says – reply to this


    i can't believe people are really getting riled up over this. adele is awesome and i love her but if i knew her in real life i would describe her as chunky. regardless of if you think joan rivers is annoying, fake, or whatever, what she said is true. i think it was slightly distasteful for her to say such a thing but why should she apologize for her opinions? she's a fashion critic, voicing what she really thinks is her specialty.

  54. DIEJOAN says – reply to this


    I really doubt Adele knows who this fu*king old hang is who is such a waste of space and should die already. Really why isn't Joan Rivers dead?

  55. Jon says – reply to this


    Sad that his is what she's known for now - being a bitchy, shallow, fading and withered star who has to attack for another 5 minutes in the media. I feel sorry for her.
    Love me some Adele - I don't care she's a hundred pounds heavier or lighter… she f*cking rocks - talent, personality, and someone I'd love to have a drink with. I couldn't stomach being in the same room as Joan - more depth in a kiddie pool.

  56. 56

    Um…hello. It's Joan Rivers we're talking about. Isn't she known for talking shit about other people and making jokes (even though they are cruel). Look people, Joan is old, she's seen it all and lived more ups and downs than a roller coaster. I'm sure nothing you say will take anything she accomplished in her 50 year career away. So bitch and bitch, but Adele is fat. Not chubby, not just kinda thick…she's literally fat. Not Khloe Kardashian fat, but truly obese. So before talking shit on little old Joan, just realize, she is saying what we all think. Perhaps Adele should go on a diet if she's really that bothered by what people say about her. Sure, she just gave birth, but Adriana Lima gave birth too and she was on the runway a month later! Being a big woman, losing baby weight seems like a much easier thing to do than being stick thin and trying to get that body back. Besides, so Joan has PS…she would be there first to tell you. "Yeah, I had plastic surgery, what else is new??"

  57. JadeRay says – reply to this


    Seriously, look who's talking trash about somebody's looks

    Joan Rivers is made from polyester. She shouldn't be calling anyone names.

  59. 59

    Re: WillowWynde – too many right minded morons told her she is beautiful, hence the stupid fat tart stays fat! Heck it's good to tell her she is fat! We all, who say she is bloody fat, are doing her a favour! That's how much we care, even if she is a total stranger to all of us. But since she is flaunting her lard around and is always in our faces (internet, TV, you name it! That's how good PRs she has :D ) it's hard to just sit and let brown nosed morons who applaud her fatness get away with it! Perhaps she can employ her money to slim herself down a bit (even if this "bit" is enormous!), eh? Now, THAT would be a good investment.

    Re: Paul – …..um no…actually being fat for some people is NOT a choice..,there are medical conditions such as thyroid issues that can cause excessive weight gain…but u yourself are prob on the heavy side and whatever you need to help you sleep at night..sure go for it….but don't criticize Adele coz she's "overweight"……ugh u fuckin people are pathetic

    Is Adele fat?yes but sometimes the way joan disses her jokes is downright mean.why did she say adele's song should be called rolling in chicken.she could have just called her the fat adele.as for Adele i support women being chubby but not fat you can die of heart illnesses caused by cholesterol.loose some weight for your own good.and so your husband will enjoy you more in bed.goodluck

  68. bree says – reply to this


    Adele is fat, but why is that a bad thing? People have to stop being so negative about overweight people, especially since there has never been any conclusive evidence to prove that being overweight is unhealthy. (Yes, being obese is unhealthy, but so is being extremely skinny. Being Adele's weight? Definitely not unhealthy in the least).

    Anyway, bottom line? Adele is gorgeous beyond belief, and SO talented. And Joan Rivers is old as ass and has never been beautiful. She's always been thin, but never, ever has she been attractive.

  69. 69

    Well, at least Adele's face isn't wrecked. Seriously, Joan rivers is about the most vile looking woman on Earth.

  75. 75

    What a damn cheek. Adele is so gorgeous, this silly old trout must be blind! as she clearly cannot see herself, she looks like a smacked up arsehole! "you can have as much surgery as you want Joan, doesnt mean you live longer and doesnt stop the arthritic looking hands you have or old lady walk and turkey neck!! and the incontinence pads you most probably have to wear, you stupid old fool!

    At least Adele's prettier than Joan. Like… Joan's face is so scary

  78. D says – reply to this


    We'll have to feel sorry for the old lady. She was crazy before, now she's getting demented. Few brain cells that were left seem to have disappeared…. blame it on the bottox, plastic surgery. River is not fat, she probably used so much of it to reinject in some part of her falling body…. Sorry Rivers, used to think you were funny

  79. SPRGOSS says – reply to this


    Adele, if she chooses, could always lose weight.. However, Joan Rivers is stuck with a hideous face and there is nothing she can do about it. I have never seen the funny side of humiliating people for a career? She is just plain rude!

    Adele has never asked for an apology from Joan and she never will because she doesn't give a shit what anyone thinks.She is proud of her curves and she should be,Adele is fucking hot.Joan's just a jealous,insecure old hag who's only talent is being a horrible human being.Long live Adele!
