while writing and recording 4. Adele was also seen applauding her during the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, in which the entire crowd had gone wild after Knowles sang her song "Love On Top" and officially announced her pregnancy to the public, having showed her baby bump after the performance. In 2012, Adele and Knowles both expressed interest in collaborating with one another.

Adele has stated that the "highlight" of her life was getting to meet Beyoncé and Jay-Z, stating, "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. 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 fucking relevant. And just a nice person." [1]

At a later date, Adele stated: "I adore Beyoncé, I've been listening to her since I was about 11. I think her work as an artist and a singer is enviable in terms of the length of her career and how she's grown and grown, but most of my inspirations are [from] old music and sadly they have all died." [2]

Knowles and Adele were both inspired by Etta James, as well. Both are also good friends of the pop singer Lady Gaga, as Knowles has collaborated with Lady Gaga twice, with a rumored third collaboration on the way.

Adele also modeled her alter ego, Sasha Carter, after Knowles' alter ego, Sasha Fierce, and June Carter.

Knowles's song "Crazy in Love" is featured on Adele's Playlist, released on iTunes in the UK.
