“There’s friendships I have that are completely tied to us being complete Beyonce stans.”
Adele won Album of the Year at the Grammys, but as far as she’s concerned it belongs to Beyonce.
After dedicating the award to Beyonce during her acceptance speech at the 59th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, Adele gushed over her allegiance to the “Sandcastles” singer in an interview backstage at the Staples Center following the ceremony.
“My album of the year is Lemonade,” she told the press. “I spoke to her before just to let her know how honored and privileged I felt to be nominated alongside her, and we spoke afterward as well and she was very gracious and humble, as always, as we’ve come to expect,” Adele said. “And the reason I felt the need to say something is because my album of the year is Lemonade. She is my icon of my whole life.”
She also mentioned feeling compelled to give Beyonce the honor because of how the album film impacted her life and because Beyonce has never taken home the win for Album of the Year. “I felt like it was her time to win,” she said. “What the f–k does she have to do to win album of the year? That’s how I feel.”
She’s not messing around.
“There’s friendships I have that are completely tied to us being complete Beyonce stans. I don’t take any f—ing sh-t when it comes to anyone not liking Beyonce. You can’t be in my life. You simply can’t.”
