Adele at the Oscars: 'I Feel Like Beyoncé!'
It isn’t proper diva etiquette to admit that you’re inspired by other singing superstars — but Adele is no ordinary diva.
Before hitting the stage to perform “Skyfall,” her Oscar-winning James Bond theme, the British singer dished to ABC’s pre-show that her performance look made her feel “like Beyoncé.”
It wasn’t the Burberry dress itself that reminded her so much of the fellow new mom, though. It was because the crystal-embroidered silk dress was so heavy (“15 kilos!” she joked) that it was hard to perform in.
Oscar rehearsals made Adele question how Beyoncé sings and dances in her heavily embellished performance numbers. “I take a breath to do a big note,” she said, illustrating with a huge gasp. “It’s a bit difficult!”
But from her flawless, modern hair (a switch-up from the ’60s inspired do she wore on the red carpet) to her big, belting performance, we bet Beyoncé was at home taking some notes herself. Tell us: What did you think of Adele’s performance? Did you prefer her red carpet hair or her performance look?
