Sarah Palin is a big fan of singer Adele, and vice versa. Adele actually credits Palin for her superstardom here in the U.S.

The former Alaska governor recently signed a copy of her latest book for the "Rolling in the Deep" singer.

Using several song title puns, Sarah Palin got creative with the inscription.

"Adele, You look so great! So beautiful! So … Rumor Has It you recently threw me some credit for your amazing success – very kind coming from Someone Like You! Congrats on motherhood. Keep Setting Fire to the Rain. Love, your fan...Sarah Palin."

So back to that superstardom. Why does Adele credit Sarah Palin with her success? Does Sarah Palin give voice lessons on the side?

It's actually nothing like that, and has everything to do with coincidence instead.

Adele recently explained the situation during an interview with BBC One.

"The week I was doing Saturday Night Live, it was meant to be a normal week but the week after, Sarah Palin was supposed to do it," Adele said of her 2008 SNL appearance.

"Because something came up in the campaign, she came and did the week I was doing it with Josh Brolin. So it was one of the most watched SNLs ever, and then it was two weeks before the Grammy ballot, which is when people decide what songs they want to maybe nominate, so, like, literally the stars aligned for me," she continued.

Following that SNL appearance, Adele's album "19" immediately shot all the way up to number one on iTunes. Shortly thereafter she was nominated for four Grammys--two of which she won.

"All thanks to Sarah Palin," Adele said.

Who knew?

Did you have any idea Adele credited Sarah Palin with at least part of her success in the U.S.?

Adele just happens to be tonight's musical guest on Saturday Night Live. Will you be tuning in to hear her perform her latest hit, "Hello?"
