The 'Set Fire To The Rain' singer says the 'Countdown' star's music inspired her while growing up.

Adele has explained her adoration for Beyonce and says she finds the 'Love On Top' singer really inspiring.

The 'Someone Like You' singer thinks new mother Beyonce is "beautiful" and loves the message behind her music.

"She's been a huge and constant part of my life as an artist since I was about ten or eleven," Adele told US Vogue. "I love how all of her songs are about empowerment.

"Evern when she's married and Jay-Z put a ring n it, she released 'Single Ladies'. Go get yours. Go get what you deserve. I think she's really inspiring. 

"She's ridiculously talented, and she is one of the kindest people I've ever met," Adele explained. "She makes me want to do things with my life."

Adele made her live return from throat surgery at the Grammy Awards on Sunday (12th February) with a performance of 'Rolling In The Deep'.
