British soul sensation Adele has slammed reports suggesting she has been pressured into sliming down in order to break the American music market.
The Chasing Pavements star is set to tour the U.S. to promote her debut LP 19, which has proved a smash hit in the star's native Britain.
According to recent reports, the shapley singer was so desperate to make it big in the U.S., like her peers Duffy and Amy Winehouse, she started a strict diet to shed the weight.
But the star refutes the speculation: "It's totally made up. Whoever made it up is mental. I mean, how long do I have to shed this weight?"
