Like most other people on this planet, Adele has always been a huge Beyoncé fan, and no matter how much of a superstar she is herself, she’s not ashamed to show her appreciation for Queen B.
And now an insider close to Adele tells heat that the singer has actually been modelling her fitness regime on her idol.
“Adele is obsessed with Beyoncé and her goal is to have a body just like hers,” says the insider. “Adele just thinks Bey exudes confidence and she wants the same for herself.”
The 32-year-old recently paid tribute to Beyoncé in a rare Instagram post. Dressed in a matching outfit to the Lemonade hitmaker, Adele sat under her TV, pointing up to Beyoncé’s new Black Is King visual album playing on the screen. She captioned her post, “Thank you Queen for always making us all feel so loved through your art.”
But Adele – who has seven-year-old son Angelo with her ex-husband Simon Konecki – isn’t just a fan of Beyoncé’s work.
“Adele has found her so inspirational – particularly after seeing in her Netflix documentary how she got back into shape after having the twins,” says the insider. “Adele is going through her own weight-loss journey and she sees Bey as one of her most trusted idols. She thinks her body is amazing and strong, and she wants hers to be like that.”

And so, even though Adele is rumoured to have lost around seven stone in total, we’re told she’s been in touch with Beyoncé’s trainer for more tips.
“Her team’s been in touch with Bey’s trainer and nutritionist Marco Borges, who has put together amazingly healthy meals for Adele, similar to what he’s designed for Bey,” our source shares. “She’s also been in touch with Manuel Mendez, who is Bey’s personal shopper and her daughter Blue Ivy’s stylist, to get advice on what her stylists should be looking out for in terms of what to wear.”
While fans desperately wait for new music – Adele’s fourth album’s been delayed due to you-know-what – it seems she’s pulling out all the stops behind the scenes for an epic comeback.
Bring it on.
