At this point in her career, Adele is likely aware that just about anyone in the industry would be stoked to work with her – but MADONNA? Adele has to be flattered and a little excited by how the Queen of ’80s Pop has been playing Mama Bear lately, defending Adele against ridicule for her weight and singing praises for Adele’s undeniable talent. When asked if she would ever like to collaborate with Adele, Madonna responded enthusiastically, “Yes, I would love to. I would love to meet her, I think she’s brilliant, I love her.”
Madonna, 53, also shared this week that she had even specifically requested to work with the famous Londoner for the Super Bowl halftime show. “I wanted her to be in the Super Bowl with me, but I think she was having her throat problem or throat operation or something,” Madonna told ITV1’s Daybreak. Madonna was instead accompanied by M.I.A., Cee-Lo Green, and Nicki Minaj for the halftime show for a performance that received a very mixed reviews. Madonna first showed her liking to Adele last month when she stood up for the songstress when designer Karl Lagerfeld made negative comments about her weight, calling her “a little too fat.” “That's horrible,” Madonna chastised. “That's ridiculous, that's just the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard ... Adele's a great talent and how much she weighs has nothing to do with it.” Madonna or not, we’re just glad someone stated what should be obvious. Although Madonna has been making headlines for more than thirty years now, it was as much for her style, attitude, and quick tongue as it was her actual music.
Adele, however, may be the most legitimately talented singer-songwriter out there today, as she has already won pretty much ever award possible at the tender age of 23. It would be quite interesting to hear what Adele’s response to Madonna’s praise is. Is she flattered, or would she think her music is too far removed from Madonna’s to make a collaboration work? Adele’s smoky voice is the star of all of her songs, which she writes personally, while Madonna’s sound is far more synthesized and, well, ’80s pop sounding. Adele covers herself quite conservatively, while Madonna – despite being thirty years Adele’s senior – leaves very little to the imagination with her wardrobe choices. Still, if anyone could make the very different sounds and personalities find some sort of common ground and sound amazing, it would be Adele.
