"Really I came to the Brits to stalk Adele," Rihanna told host Jonathan Ross. "it was nothing about the awards or the performance, for me it was just to see Adele again. 

"She doesn't know the depth of my affection. She has no idea," the 'You Da One' star explained. "The last album 21 just spoke to me so much."

Rihanna said she eventually had to stop listening to Adele's Grammy Award-winning sophomore record because it upset her so much.

"I had to stop listening to it cos it was depressing me so much," she added. "You become so attached to the stories, it's really something you identify with."
