Adele really, truly gets it. 

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Adele reveals that she may just be the most relatable celebrity that has ever lived. She admits to being able to eat an entire packet of cheese. (Same.) She burps all the time. (Same.) She gushes over Beyoncé any chance she can. (Obviously same.) 

And Adele, like most of us, is also sick of having to conform to certain beauty standards in order to please men and/or society. For her, that means she's not shaving her legs for anyone but herself. 

After revealing that she went without shaving her legs one month while touring, Vanity Fair's interviewer asks if her boyfriend minded. 

Her response should be engraved into a national monument. 

"He has no choice," she said. "I'll have no man telling me to shave my fuckin' legs. Shave yours."

Say it again for the people in the back, Adele! 

This certainly isn't the first time Adele's gotten real about body confidence and acceptance either. In 2009, she told the Daily Mail, "I have never been insecure, ever, about how I look, about what I want to do with myself. My mom told me to only ever do things for myself, not for others."

And in 2011, she told Rolling Stone, "My life is full of drama, and I don't have time to worry about something as petty as what I look like. ... Even if I had a really good figure, I don't think I'd get my tits and ass out for no one." 

The real message: You do you. For Adele, that means taking shit from no man about her body hair.
