Adele's British Vogue Cover Was One of the Worst Sellers Ever: Do You Think She Made a Good Cover Girl?

Adele wasn't exactly a big hit on the cover of British Vogue. "Adele is the most popular woman in the world, but one of the worst sellers we've ever had," Editor in Chief Alexandra Shulman revealed, according to vogue.co.uk. Ouch.

So why was the English singer such a flop in ... England? "Music stars haven't sold at all well," she explained. "I find there has to be a relationship with the person on the cover that goes beyond how they look." And everyone has a relationship with ... themselves. "Our most successful cover was the millennium issue -- which didn't have anyone on it, but acted like a mirror so you could see your own reflection!" she said.

So who would Shulman love to see on the cover? One certain pretty English princess, for starters. "I'd love to have Kate Middleton on the cover. I assure you it is not for want of asking," she said. We're not really sure where the Adele cover went wrong. She's super popular, super talented and very beautiful. Do you think Vogue readers (at least British Vogue) readers prefer more typical fashion-y types?

    I can't believe that everyone here is so shallow and mean. That brought my day down reading all of your evil comments.

    I think she's a very attractive and dare a say sexy woman, the cover makes her look very sultry.

    Adele is too old for her age. I wonder if she takes care of herself. Why would the mag sell when she looks like a monster even at her age.

    That photo is terrible, so over done. Adele's personality does not fit the Vogue type either.

    In THAT shot - sorry, no. I'm not just saying this because I can't stand Adele either.

    Really, just LOOK at it - whoever thought putting her hair all over the place like that needs to be slapped. She looks half lion, half plastic.

    Her face isn't natural - then again, who in a magazine's is - and her expression is... lacking. She looks bloody BORED.

    Even if it wasn't Adele, I still wouldn't buy it. It's like looking at a photoshopped Facebook picture - you know, the kind girls always use where they close in on their face and crop everything else.

    I don't find anorexic women all that pretty to be honest, Adele on the other hand is very pretty.

    Anorexics come from all walks of life-and shapes. Anorexia is a mind thing, and it's just wrong to assume that all fashion models, or thin people have it...

    The cover is ok. I do think she would look better smaller. I seen her a few times and I heard the way she talks and I dont like her attitude ://.. Shes a self absorbed lady. Adele was hot one time, it seems like the flame is getting smaller and smaller. I dont think her fans are loyal.

    She's probably the hottest chick they've had on their cover in ages. I'd hit it and never quit it. Adele is a sexy beast.

    I love that she is herself and doesn't fit the tabloid 'mold'. It says a lot about her. Finally a curvy girl, such as myself, is making it. Sure there are haters. Haven't there always been? But she is the epitome of talent in my opinion. And it's RAW talent. Not to mention she is gorgeous!

    Those eyes! ^-^

    She is very beautiful and very right. She shouldn't change for anyone. Too bad most young, and in general, people don't see it that way.


    So many people talk and 'promote' inner beauty. So why don't they follow it?

    Absolutely not.She's a musician, not a model. They need to bring back the models on the magazines, and keep off the actors, actresses, musicians, and female politicians. It's supposed to be about Fashion ( editorials, lines, and beauty, etc)

    Not a fashion model in the least, so she doesn't belong on there. It has nothing to do with her weight ( though, personally, not attracted to someone that heavy), and she's actually quite talented.

    It's just that there's a place for musicians-whatever size they are.

    I'm all of size diversity within the fashion model field too.
