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.

It’s not my place to judge whether Adele’s Bantu knots are cultural appropriation or not. I’ll defer to African American activists on this issue. All I want to say is that instead of cancel culture we need to have more conversations and chances to improve and learn in good faith.

y’all i’m just asking, isn’t adele’s look cultural appreciation instead of appropriation? like she’s at an event and she seems she’s clearly informed, so it’s not just using something from other culture as an accessory or everyday trend? i’m genuinely curious what y’all think.

Adele is getting smashed on Insta for “cultural appropriation” after posting this pic an hour ago.
Apparently, they now own hairstyles.
These people are crazy. The poor woman just wanted to show off her epic weight loss.
Don’t delete or apologise.

Adele totally killed it with the canary-yellow feathered collar, a Jamaican flag bikini top, and bantu knots.
