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.

    There's a line between having pride and being arrogant. I'm not thin but it's still a rude thing to say, I mean you wouldn't like it if somebody said "I'd rather be slender than a whale".

    We've also had too many shallow people like you. When you gain 500 pounds I hope you feel AWFUL about yourself.

    I'd rather look at a heaver girl than just skin and bones. Besides she's very beautiful.

    She doesn't have to be thin just to suit you.
  • ~Kutie~ Maci 2012/05/19 04:36:07
    She needs to lose weight to be on the cover of a magazine?
  • Little ... Maci 2012/05/19 06:58:38
    Little Fawn
    I agree. :)
  • LdyLeo Maci 2012/05/19 17:33:42
    We hear this crap about her weight all the time. Give it a rest people!
  • RoyJLores 2012/05/18 21:51:48
    There is nothing wrong with her maybe those that run the magazine ought to be looking at the magazine's content, a pretty face in a magazine cover is not gonna guarantee sales unless it's Maxim or Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. :D
  • harasnicole 2012/05/18 21:36:52
    Personally, I think she looks gorgeous.

    I think "ADORING ADELLE" was a bad title for the cover story. If music stars haven't sold well, that title under her face isn't likely to help matters.
  • Aquaduck 2012/05/18 21:20:28
    She looks flawless. I bet if she was half-naked or showing her boobs it would've sold more. Ain't that a shame?
  • Charlotte 2012/05/18 20:46:44
    She made it on to the cover of Vogue; that should be good for her career
  • lorenab. 2012/05/18 20:46:16
    i personally think that Adele is gorgeous! And she deffinitely works being thick!:D i think she deffinitely made a good cover girl!:D
  • Sunshine 2012/05/18 20:04:35
    I think she looks very pretty. :)
  • ♒ßεllεchεvεllε®♒ 2012/05/18 19:58:00
    Moreso than others. Of course it couldn't possibly have anything to do with crappy content, could it.
  • VeronicaSilva 2012/05/18 19:44:47
    She looks beautiful!

    Terrible photo of her.
  • renishamurphy 2012/05/18 19:43:25
    Dag, she is a singer. And she looks nice
  • sockpuppet 2012/05/18 19:41:41
    Never heard of her before... but she looks like any other covergirl I've ever seen.
  • geneticmistake 2012/05/18 19:39:12
    Nothing predictably wrong with Adele on Vogue's cover. People may be "Adeled out". Just about everything there is to know about her was published in print and online during the time period of the music awards.
  • Natasha 2012/05/18 19:08:38
    Adele is amazing she can sing, she writes beautiful moving lyrics, and she is Gorgeous!!
  • Heather 2012/05/18 18:37:04
    BUT...the picture they took of her looks like she is an evil pissed off person....whoever was the photographer???? and why did they choose that photo???
  • Ms.Gamlieli 2012/05/18 18:30:27
    She is talented. I tell you people don't know what real talent and beauty is even if it hit them in the face.
  • darlene 2012/05/18 18:25:45
    She is very beautiful.
