Adele is calling Taylor Swift “one of the greatest songwriters of our generation.” During a special live-streamed fan event Tuesday night (October 25) called Happy Hour with Adele, the “Easy on Me” singer shared her love for her fellow singer-songwriter.
Adele, 34, said that she enjoyed many of Swift’s recent releases and thinks the “Anti-Hero” singer makes her music “fun” for fans. During the event, Adele was asked by a fan whether she had listened to Swift’s Midnights album yet, which was released on Friday (October 21).
“I haven’t, but the only reason I haven’t listened is ‘cause I’ve been in rehearsals for like 12 hours a f—ing day,” she cheekily replied. “I’m sick and tired of anything f—ing musical except for when you go into the car. But, I think Taylor’s one of the greatest songwriters of our generation so I’ll definitely give it a listen. I loved the two [released] in Covid very, very much,” she added, referring to the Folklore and Evermore albums Swift released in 2020. “I think she’s fun, as well. She makes a release fun.”
Swift isn’t the only musician the British singer praised during the event. She shared her love and support for Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj, saying, “I think Britney Spears is one of the most talented musicians I’ve seen in the last 25 years. I can’t wait for new music from her. I think she’s wonderful.” Another fan asked Adele to address a rumor that she did a collaboration with Nicki, which Adele denied even hearing about. However, she said that she loves the rapper, adding, “I think she’s wonderful. I’ve always loved Nicki Minaj, she’s a real vibe.”
Adele will be dropping a new music video today at 12 pm ET for “I Drink Wine.” Yesterday, she wrote on Twitter, “The I Drink Wine video was the first one I shot for this album. And it’s finally coming out tomorrow!! I’m excited for you to see it and I can’t wait to see some of you tonight!”
The short clip that she shared looks as though the music video will be a fantasy-themed one.
