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.

    "She has an amazing voice and to all of you "haters" shes famous and youre not. end of story"

    Okay, but we're talking about a PHOTO here, not her voice and, while I already think she's incredibly overrated, the picture itself is terrible. I blame the photographer however, as well as whoever selected it for the cover.

    "she doesnt have to be super model anorexic to be beautiful or famous" That's true. But what I have a problem with is how she always has harsh insults towards thinner women. For somebody who said THIS

    and also "I don't want to be a skinny-mini with my tits out", she sure had no problem being on Vogue TWICE, and wearing layers of Spanx when appearing at big events.

    I agree with everyone else who said 'yes', she is very beautiful. Although, she looks bored on the Vogue cover. The haters on here are shallow and cruel; you guys are hating on Adele for no reason.

    Well, maybe the only reason the haters do not like her is because she gets more attention and she is on the thick side.

    I never said Adele was boring or depressing. I said the cover was. Adele has been in far more vibrant covers than this.

    Anorexic airbrushed toothpicks shouldn't be the only people allowed to be cover models for magazines.

    I like Adele's music, but this is a terrible picture. She looks... dead. Like, there's no energy, no life in her face. Her expression reads "I'd rather be anywhere else right now".

    I think she's beautiful. Maybe a lot of the magazines out there have constantly repetitive articles and are mostly advertisements, so consumers chose to spend their money on something else.

    Yes, she is beautiful and talented. Look at those eyes and that perfect nose!! ( So many Hollywood stars pay surgeons for a nose that she has naturally. ) I would rather see a natural person than a skinny young girl who doesn't represent real women. Kate M by the way is bordering on anorexic. I think she needs to eat something. Not that she isn't a pretty girl. But, I would hate for another Diana thing to happen. It seems sad that women everywhere feel they have to be skin and bones to be desirable. I used to model when I was young ( in the late 1960's and early 70's) and the pressure is crazy in that business. Now, I am a normal weight and it is so much better to eat what you want and not worry about your weight. As a teacher I see girls going into the bathroom to vomit after eating lunch so they won't gain weight. It is a huge problem in the US.

    not only that she is confident that is both beautiful and sexy

    Yep!!! I agree. Confidence in both men and women is an attractive feature to have. The irony is, that many really pretty and handsome people are very insecure. But, that is probably true about a lot of people in show biz.

    Did you ever think that the magazines content itself was unappealing this time around and not specifically the fault of the person on the cover? If the headlines don't catch peoples eyes why would they buy it because you can get a good picture of Adele anywhere...just saying
