“The Grammy means a lot to me, obviously, it’s kind of the award show so I’m very very humbled by that accomplishment. I feel very lucky… but like I said in my speech my album of the year was Lemonade, so a piece of me did die inside as a Beyonce stan,” the 28-year-old entertainer expressed in the Grammys press room held at the Staples Center on Sunday (February 12) in Los Angeles. “I’m not gonna lie. I was completely rooting for her, I voted for her.”
“We did speak, yeah. I spoke to her before just to let her know how honored and privileged I feel to be nominated alongside her,” Adele added. “We spoke afterwards as well and she was very gracious and humble as always, as all you can expect from her. She is my icon. I felt like it was her time to win, my view is kind of like ‘what the f**k does she need to do to win Album of the Year’, that’s also how I feel.”

Adele in TV Radio Room After Winning Album, Record and Song of the Year
Adele snapped her Album of the Year Grammys statue in half and had the most amazing reaction when she did it.
The 28-year-old entertainer couldn’t stop laughing when the statue broke – and some fans think maybe she split her Grammy in half to give part of it to Beyonce for her album Lemonade!
Adele tearfully said during her acceptance speech for 25 that she was dedicating the award to Beyonce. If Adele really split the Grammy in half to give to Beyonce – we’re getting major Mean Girls vibes! Remember when Lindsay Lohan‘s character splits the Spring Fling crown into pieces to give out to others?!

The 28-year-old entertainer dedicated the win to Beyonce‘s Lemonade instead, and things got emotional. Adele expressed to Beyonce how much the album meant to her and her life, and Beyonce got visibly teary as well.
“I can’t possibly accept this award,” Adele explained to the audience as she began her speech. “And I’m very humbled and I’m very grateful and gracious but my artist of my life is Beyoncé and this album to me, the Lemonade album, was just so monumental, Beyonce. It was so monumental and so well thought out, and so beautiful and soul-bearing. We got to see another side to you that you don’t always let us see, and we appreciate that, and all us artists here who adore you. And you are our lives, and the way that 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.”
Adele shared some praise for Beyonce after winning Record of the Year for her album 25.
“I adore you. You move my soul every single day. And you have done for nearly 17 years….And I want you to be my mommy,” the 28-year-old entertainer told the Beyonce, who was also up for the award with her album Lemonade.
Bey of course made headlines earlier this month after announcing she’s going to be a mom again to twins. Bey and Jay Z are also parents to Blue Ivy, 5.
