Is Adele Beyoncé’s biggest fan?
While we already had an inkling the “Hello” singer was fond of Bey, telling Time in 2015, “Anyone who knows me knows that my main priority in life outside of my child is Beyoncé,” Adele has taken her admiration to new heights. In a #lategram post shared via Instagram, the 27-year-old praised her fellow pop star over Lemonade.
“I’m not late on this I’ve just been speechless,” Adele, who is currently on tour, wrote a week after HBO debuted the album and it began streaming on Tidal. “I’ve just been speechless. Beyonce is the most inspiring person I’ve ever had the pleasure of worshipping. Her talent, beauty, grace and work ethic are all in a league of their own. I appreciate you so much! Thank god for Beyoncé X.”
As for whether the two will work together in the near future, Adele “hopes so.” For months now, there have been rumors swirling that the powerhouse vocalists were feuding. While that gossip was soon after shut down, when asked about claims she turned down the opportunity to do a duet with Beyoncé for 25, Adele laughed it off. “Whoever started that rumor must have been having a laugh because anyone who knows me knows that my main priority in life outside of my child is Beyoncé,” she told Time. “I really wanted to do a duet on this album. I spoke to someone about it who I wanted to do it with, and we got on like a house on fire, and then we just couldn’t logistically really get it to work. I can’t say who it is because I want to do it in the future. That’s the only reason. It wasn’t Beyoncé!”
“Which I would never be so disrespectful as to do. I’d never disrespect her like that. Obviously, like, Queen B ‘til the day I die,” she added during an interview with Zane Lowe.
We think it’s safe to say, Adele is a proud member of the Bey Hive!
