- Adele called Beyoncé “queen” and thanked her for her “Black is King” visual album
- The “Hello” singer twinned with Beyoncé in her new Instagram post
- Some of Adele’s fans had a hard time recognizing her in her latest photo
Adele recently praised Beyoncé’s new visual album, “Black Is King,” calling the singer “queen.”
Adele, much like millions of other Beyoncé fans, took to social media to show her support for the “Black Is King” visual album after it was released on Disney+ on Friday. The “Hello” singer shared a snap of herself smiling as she poses in front of a TV screen showing a scene from Beyoncé’s “Already” performance.
In the photo, the songstress matched Beyoncé’s brown Marine Serre catsuit with her own crescent moon-printed top from the designer.
“Thank you Queen for always making us all feel so loved through your art,” Adele wrote on Instagram on Saturday.
This isn’t the first time Adele has been open about her love for Beyoncé and her work. Last year, she revealed on Instagram her excitement over Beyoncé’s documentary, “Homecoming,” which offers a behind-the-scenes look at her headlining 2018 Coachella performance.
Back in 2017, Adele also divided her Grammy Award in half to give to the 38-year-old star and gushed over her in her acceptance speech after winning Record of the Year.
“I can’t possibly accept this award, and I’m very humbled and very grateful and gracious, but my life is Beyoncé, and the album to me—the Lemonade album, Beyoncé—was so monumental, and so well thought out, and so beautiful and soul-bearing,” Adele said.
Aside from her love for Beyoncé, Adele’s slimmer figure also caught the eye of her followers, with some netizens finding her unrecognizable after she shed weight.
“I was like oh she’s posting a pic of her friend – kinda weird – took a few to realize it’s actually her. Still not sure lol,” one person commented on her post.
“Oh my god… Adele doesn’t even look like Adele anymore,” another follower wrote.
Other supporters of the singer, meanwhile, slammed the criticisms, saying her health and happiness were the only things that mattered.
“She is healthy, is the same Adele [face with rolling eyes emojis] So disrespectful,” an Instagram user commented.
Earlier this year, the “Rolling in the Depp” singer trended on social media when a photo of her at the Oscars after-party looking much slimmer circulated online. And while she received a lot of praise for her new appearance, some netizens body-shamed Adele for being too skinny.
However, these critics were called out by other netizens, with one fan writing on Twitter, “Its 2020 and people feel its acceptable to body shame others. In 2015 you called Adele too fat. She loses weight for 2020 and now shes too skinny! [expletive] Its nobody’s business what she looks like, and as for calling her out on it – shame on you!”
