Adele Calls Breastfeeding Pressure "F***ing Ridiculous"

Adele, defender of moms everywhere. 

By Sharon Lynn Pruitt

Breastfeeding is a pretty controversial topic for new moms - with women facing backlash for daring to breastfeed in public or choosing formula instead, you're pretty much damned in you do and damned if you don't.

This generation of mothers has had enough of the unfair pressure placed on women to breastfeed - including Adele, who gave birth to her son Angelo in 2012. During a recent show, the "Hello" singer fired back at critics on behalf of mothers everywhere, Entertainment Weekly reports.

"It's f***ing ridiculous, and all those people who put pressure on us, you can go f**k yourselves, all right?" she said while on stage. "Because it's hard. Some of us can't do it. I managed about nine weeks with my boobs."

"I mean, I loved [using formula]. All I wanted to do was breastfeed 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.'"

Her comments come on the heels of recent breastfeeding controversy stirred up by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, who told LBC Radio that women should breastfeed more because it's "free" and "easy."
