Adele Blasts Jamie Oliver For Breastfeeding Comments

He may know his way around a kitchen, but Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has irked a few mums out there - including Adele.

Jamie recently touted 'breast is best' while on a radio talk show. 

"It's easy, it's more convenient, it's more nutritious, it's better, it's free," Jamie told 'Leading Britain's Conversation'. 

Understandably, some women immediately took the chef to task for being outspoken on an issue that isn't within his realm of expertise. 

One of those women was Adele.

Over the weekend, the 27-year-old superstar and mother of one told a packed London arena she was fed up with the pressure placed on women to breastfeed.

"It's f***ing ridiculous, and all those people who put pressure on us, you can go f*** yourselves, alright?" she when an audience member asked her about "breastfeeding mummies". 

"Because it's hard. Some of us can't do it. I managed about nine weeks with my boobs (I mean, I trip over them – I've got a very good push-up bra). Some of my mates got post-natal depression from the way those midwives were talking. Idiots.

"Breastfeed if you can but don't worry, Aptamil [a formula millk] is just as good. I mean, I loved it, all I wanted to do was breastfeed and then I couldn't and then I felt like, 'if I was in the jungle now back in the day, my kid would be dead because my milk's gone.'

"It's not funny - that's how some of us think!" she added.

Jamie has since qualified is comments on Twitter. 

"I'm not planning on starting a campaign around breastfeeding," he wrote. "It's simply an area of interest following my nutritional studies over the past two years."
