Adele Defends Mothers Who Can’t Breastfeed

It has been widely documented that when it comes to newborns, ‘breast is best.’ But for some women, breastfeeding isn’t a viable option; they simply can’t breastfeed for a variety of reasons including mastitis, an inability to produce enough milk, being on medication or social inhibition. Perhaps these women will find some comfort in the most recent A-list celebrity to speak out in their defence: Adele. The Oscar winning superstar took a moment to raise the subject whilst on tour, her comments coming after Jamie Oliver’s endorsement of the boob. He claimed that breastfeeding is not only best, but easier and more convenient for women. Here’s what got Adele all riled up:

“Breast-feeding mommies? You know what, it’s fucking ridiculous. All those people who put pressure on us, you can go fuck yourselves, all right?”

“It’s hard,” explained Adele, mother to Angelo since 2012. “Some of us can’t do it. I managed about nine weeks with my boobs.”

The star also spoke of her fondness of formula and how she’d have been lost without it: “I mean, I loved [using formula]. All I wanted to do was breast-feed, 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.”
