The U.K.’s most famous chef, Jamie Oliver, has some strong opinions on breastfeeding, and Britain’s most recognizable pop-star, Adele, has something to say about it.

Oliver told US Weekly that “[the U.K.] the worst breastfeeding in the world. If you breastfeed for more than six months, women are 50% less likely to get breast cancer. When do you ever hear that? Never. It’s easy, it’s more convenient, it’s more nutritious, it’s better, it’s free,” he told LBC radio on March 15.


His comments encouraging others to breastfeed more understandably received backlash, seeing as Jamie Oliver is not a woman who knows the trials and tribulations of doing such. Adele took it upon herself to tell her fans at her London show a week later (see video above, staring at the 50 second mark). Here are a few highlights:

“Breastfeeding mummies? You know what, the pressure on us is f*cking ridiculous, and if you’re one of those people who puts the pressure on you can go f*ck yourselves. Because it’s hard, some of us can’t do it. I managed about nine weeks, and now my boobs . . . I mean, I’d trip over them but I’ve got a very good push-up bra.


Breastfeed if you can, but don’t worry, cow’s milk is just as good. . . . All I wanted was to breastfeed my kid, and now I feel like, if I was in the jungle back in the day my kid would be dead because all my milk’s gone. It’s not funny!”

Jamie Oliver took to Twitter to elaborate on his viewpoint, explaining:


Try as you might, Jamie, but Adele is here to remind you to stay in your lane.
