When you’re as bright a star as Adele, folks like to create outlandish tales around how you demand your skittles be separated by color or how you don’t want any guest features on your album because you don’t want anyone outshining you. *aggressively tosses mic across the room* So when we heard that silly rumor about how she turned down a collab request from Bey, we were hoping it was fabrication.
“There’s a rumor going ’round that I turned Beyoncé down which I would never be so disrespectful as to do,” Adele told Beats 1, according to E!. “I’d never disrespect her like that. Obviously, like, Queen Bey till the day I die.”
Several sites reported the rumor last week but longtime fans know and have always known Adele to be a proud member of the hive. Back in 2011, she opened up to MTV about how Beyoncé helped her overcome major anxiety in her career.
“I was about to meet Beyoncé and I had a full-blown anxiety attack. Then she popped in looking gorgeous, and I said, ’You’re amazing! When I listen to you I feel like I’m listening to God.’”
While we wouldn’t exactly rank Bey up there with the Lord himself, (that’s a stretch) we, along with many others adore her and do our best to keep up with her every move. The idea that one of those moves could still possibly be a collaboration with Adele, brings us all the joy.
Do you see it for a Beydele/Adelonce record?
