Beyoncé Praises Adele: ‘I Feel Like I’m Listening to God’

Beyoncé and Adele

Adele may be able to knock listeners off their feet with her powerful pipes, but when it comes to one of her idols, she’s the one who gets weak in the knees. The British songbird recalls meeting Beyoncé for the first time and the glowing compliment Bey bestowed upon her.

The “Rolling in the Deep” singer was overcome with nerves before the encounter. “I was about to meet Beyoncé,” she tells Rolling Stone, “and I had a full-blown anxiety attack. Then she popped in looking gorgeous, and said, ‘You’re amazing! When I listen to you I feel like I’m listening to God.’ Can you believe she said that?”

After calming herself down, Adele was inspired to create her own alter ego, a combination of Beyoncé’s Sasha Fierce and country legend June Carter. “I went out on the balcony crying hysterically, and I said, ‘What would Sasha Fierce do?’ That’s when Sasha Carter was born,” she says of the name she uses to pump herself up.

Adele is currently coasting on the success of her sophomore album 21, which has sold over a million copies in the U.S. since its release in February.

    @COPYONCE,
    Lol the board that votes for who wins the grammys consist of over 30 people. There are very specific criteria for being on the panel & even if Mathew Knowles is on the panel he’s only one vote in about 40. Beyonce has won as many grammys as she has because of her ability (vocal & performing) & and the lack of real vocal competition within mainstream; the fact of the matter is beyonce is one of the only mainstream artists today who can make music that people like while maintaining vocal integrity. Try actually checking your information before claiming its truth.

    @itsPeachess, And you, my friend, is an ignorant fool. Go listen to her music and I hope you’ll grow up one day. Beauty is not only Megan Fox ou Jessica Alba, like the media wants you to believe. Beauty is also inside people, but you’re too stupid to understand that.

    REAL RECOGNIZES REAL. It’s so nice to hear that Beyonce is able to compliment these artists who look up to her so much. It goes to show that she is a humble artist. On another note, I am so happy that Adele is experiencing all this success. Her album really is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I love “Take It All” and “Rumor Has It.” She is going to sweep this years Grammy’s, even after they combined the male and female categories. Just watch.

    @Kyle, yes Beyonce is nice. Even Nicki Minaj adores her and Bey has complimented her as well.

    @Sunny, you obviously havent heard Adele’s music. It was a compliment, and Adele doesn’t sing about sex unlike Rihanna.

    It’s funny… This article is about Beyonce PRAISING Adele, yet all most of you are talking about is how amazing Beyonce is. The point is… She ISN’T as amazing as Adele.

    [Reply]

    wiill Reply:

    @DJ Jayito, she isn’t? Adele is amazing and deserves every bit of success she gets, but truth be told her vocals still don’t match Beyonce’s. The girl has one, if not THE, widest vocal range i have every heard. she can change pitch so quickly it’s insane, and her vocal control is unmatched. please watch your words.

    Adele is indeed the shit. She’s incomparable. All the success she’s having right now is very well deserved.

  24. Brian B..

    Oh gosh how many times have people used words like “it was like God was speaking to me”.. if you’ll listen to the album you’ll know that she probably means that the album was so good and spoke to her so much that it’s amlmost as if God was singing the songs to her and this quote was taken out of context i’m sure if there were camera’s there recording it would be more clear
