The NY Post's Page Six is reporting that an insider at the shoot claims Adele beseeched them to switch off her own CD because "she hated hearing herself" but then requested they blast Bey because she was her "girl crush." Wow!
Adele's obsession with Beyonce has been documented before, most recently in an interview with Q Magazine, where Adele recalled her memorable meeting with Jay-Z and his lady love at a 2011 Grammy party. "She went, 'Adele' and I went, 'Uh Beyonce!' And then Jay-Z went, 'Adele! I was like, 'You can't both call me Adele!' laughs the British diva. "I was like, 'Can I have a picture?' and Beyonce said, 'Can I have a picture with you?'"
It was then Beyonce uttered the line Adele will never forget. Bey told her famous fan, "When I listen to you, I feel like I'm listening to God." "I heard it but I was like, 'Don't let her know you've heard it,'" admits the self-described "common" Adele. "I ran out on the balcony and fell into her security's arms, going, 'She's so nice!' And literally collapsed. Sobbing my heart out, it was like being winded. Highlight of my life, ever."
"I don't know her but she's a huge part of my life," continues Adele "Everything I refer to has always got something to do with Destiny's Child or her. She just knows what she wants. She's in control of it all. She's classy. She's still totally f***ing relevant. And just a nice person."
Adele might be the president of Beyonce's celeb fan club, but the singer herself has her own famous super-fan ... Kelly Clarkson. Kel tells AOL Music,"I want to stalk Adele so she'll sing with me!"
