Adele Beats Beyoncé at the Grammys, But Declares "I Want You to Be My Mommy"
The "Hello" singer pays tribute to Queen Bey while accepting two major prizes at the show.
Adele said "Hello" to the Grammys' two biggest awards on Sunday: Record of the Year and Album of the Year, shutting Beyoncé out of any gold in those major categories. But, that doesn't mean that Adele didn't pay tribute to the "Formation" singer in her two speeches.
While taking the stage to accept the trophy for Record of the Year for "Hello," she used her time to shout out a very-pregnant Queen Bey, who was nominated and lost for "Formation." "And, of course, my dream and my idol is Queen Bey and I adore you," she said. "You move my soul every single day and you have done for nearly 17 years. I adore you and I want you to be my mommy."
Adele and Jay Z share a moment at the Grammys.
Moments later when taking the stage again for Album of the Year for 25, the teary-eyed British singer used the platform to once again tribute Bey. "I can't possibly accept this award and I'm very humbled and I'm very grateful and gracious but my artist of my life is Beyoncé and the Lemonade album is so monumental... and so well thought-out and so beautiful and soul-baring and we all got to see another side to you that you don't always let us see and we appreciate that , And all us artists here adore you. You are our light. And the way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is empowering and you make them stand up for themselves. And I love you. I always have and I always will."
