Now, speaking in her special interview with Oprah, she revealed it was more of a side-effect from exercise which helped her to cope with the anxiety, which followed the breakdown of her marriage.

"I had the most terrifying anxiety attacks after I left my marriage," the singer-songwriter explained. "They paralysed me completely, and made me so confused because I wouldn't be able to have any control over my body."

"That really contributed towards me getting my mind right," she added, revealing that the gym helped her ease those feelings.When Oprah talked about how own weight loss transformation and how some were critical, Adele replied:"I'm not shocked or even fazed by it because my body has been objectified my entire career. I'm either too big or too small; I'm either hot or I'm not.

"But it's not my job to validate how people feel about their bodies. I feel bad that it's made anyone feel horrible about themselves - but that's not my job. I'm trying to sort my own life out. I can't add another worry. "
