People are saying Adele looked like Fiona from Shrek at the Grammys but she’s not having any of it

Meka Beresford March 4, 2017

Adele has lashed out at Twitter trolls who compared her to an ogre, Fiona, from the Dreamworks film Shrek.

The singer wore a green Givenchy dress at the Grammy Awards last month, sparking trolls to draw a comparison to her with the animated character.

When talking at a gig in Perth, she addressed the abuse she got over the dress, which was designed by Riccardo Tisci.

“I don’t f*cking care. It was Givenchy Couture! They can say what they want,” she exclaimed to the crowd of 65,000.

The singer, who picked up five Grammys at the awards, went on to speak about how hard she worked to look good for the show.

“Before the Grammys I had this dress right, I wore this green dress, everyone said I looked like Fiona from Shrek.

“I worked out. Obviously I’m a large lady and I like eating food very much, but I was working out twice a day to fit into that Givenchy dress because it was quite tight,” she added.

The singer has been a champion for LGBT people, and during the same Perth show she invited a drag queen who impersonates Adele onto stage.

DJ Feminem wrote on Facebook after appearing on stage: “Adele you have sent my world into the most insane tail spin I’ve ever experienced!

“As you can imagine I have been absolutely overwhelmed by what happened last night!”

The 28-year-old star from north London asked drag artist Kristie Champagne (real name Kristopher Zello) to join her while performing in Seattle last year.

Adele said she was “speechless,” gushing to Kristie: “You look so amazing! Oh my god. I actually really love that dress.”

The impersonator retorted: “You seriously changed my life for the better. Dreams do come true.”

Adele also invited two dads and their baby on stage during a concert in Toronto in October.

Jon and Steve from New York had attended the Toronto concert with their baby, Jackson, and were called out by the superstar to come up on stage.

While offering a hug to the pair, she left every laughing as she quipped that Jackson was “suffocating in my boobs”.
