Britney Spears and Adele have both professed mutual admiration for one another, but Britney took it one step further recently with a video she posted on Instagram in tribute to the best-selling singer.
Spears shared a short video of herself doing pump turns in grainy black and white while Adele’s hit “Hello” plays, and captioned it with a shoutout to her fellow crooner.
“I could dance to this song a MILLION times…love you @adele!” Britney wrote.
The love isn’t one-sided, however; Adele said in a recent interview with NPR that she doesn’t understand why some fans get so crazed in her presence, because it’s not like she’s Britney Spears or something.
“I find that most people feel quite relaxed around me. I’ve met a couple that, have been a bit hysterical — like, uncontrollable shaking and stuff like that. But I’m like, ‘C’mon. Stop it. It’s just me. I’m not Britney. What’re you doing?’…Britney is the queen.”
Do we smell a duet in the works?
Meanwhile, Britney is hard at work in Las Vegas, where she recently signed on to continue her residency for quite a bit longer. Spears has had a major comeback in recent years after suffering a breakdown, and these days she’s focusing on her career and her sons following a painful breakup. Earlier this year, she took a break from the stage to appear on the hit show Jane The Virgin, where she displayed some comedic skills few knew she had.
“She definitely got comedy chops like nobody’s business, and to go head-to-head with Jaime [Camil] is like, the ultimate challenge for a comedic actress because he’s so incredible. She held her own and more. She was very, very good!” said star Gina Rodriguez.
Recently, she professed some love for Taylor Swift, as well, saying she thinks the young performer is wise beyond her years.
“I love Taylor Swift. I think she’s adorable. I love her music. Her music makes me so happy. She’s very level-headed. She’s a very, very smart girl, very wise,” Britney Spears said.
