Adele Rocks Bantu Knots & Jamaican Bikini In New Pic From Notting Hill Carnival

Pop singer Adele made contentious headlines earlier this year after unveiling her drastic weight loss. The UK born singer reportedly lost 120 pounds, all in the past year. However, she’s currently trending on Twitter for alleged cultural appropriation.

On Sunday night, Adele shared a new photo on Instagram that has since gone viral. The picture shows the singer in a Jamaican flag bikini top, yoga pants, and a new Bantu Knots hairstyle.

“Happy what would be Notting Hill Carnival my beloved London,” the vocalist wrote on Instagram, Sunday night, in tribute to the annual event. The street festival is held every August in Notting Hill, London, but was canceled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The image was presumably taken at last year’s Notting Hill Carnival.

But her comment section is filled with mixed reactions from fans with many arguing that Adele is committing cultural appropriation with her hairstyle and bikini top and others defending her.

“She is from London and is part of the culture here so just stop and acknowledge she’s paying homage,” a fan commented. “Adele dropped that weight and said it’s time for her cultural appropriation era,” a Twitter user wrote.




“If 2020 couldn’t get anymore bizarre, Adele is giving us Bantu knots and cultural appropriation that nobody asked for. This officially marks all of the top white women in pop as problematic. Hate to see it,” another person commented.
