Singer Beth Ditto has praised Adele's soulful voice and said she was impressed with her beauty and talent.
"I love Adele so much and it's honestly not because we're both big. I love that she's a f***ing singer and that she just so happens to be beautiful. It gives me chills to think about it," contactmusic.com quoted Ditto as saying.
Ditto said her childhood idols included pop star Madonna and actress Priscilla Presley.
"I love the way Priscilla Presley looked. I thought she was incredible. And Madonna's mole - I thought it was fascinating that you could just draw on a mole," she said.
