Adele wrote a lovely profile of Rihanna to celebrate her spot on Time's Most Influential People of 2018

We all need a friend like Adele. And a friend like Rihanna, actually.

YOU PROBABLY WON’T be surprised to hear that Rihanna made it to Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2018.

However, you might be surprised to learn that Rihanna is a year older than Adele. That’s a fact that Adele brought our attention to in the short essay she wrote for Rihanna’s profile on Time’s list.

Adele began by saying that she was so starstruck by Rihanna, that she can’t remember what it was like to meet her for the first time:

I actually can’t remember the first time I met Rihanna; I was probably numb from the shock of it. She is one year older than me, but I feel like she’s been around forever. The progression of her super-stardom feels steady, well deserved and extremely natural.

Adele then applauded how unique Rihanna is.

She has designed and conquered an entire lane of her own. The innovative and groundbreaking world of Rihanna that no one else will ever be safe in and get away with copying. She makes her own rules and bends ours.

It’s not just in regards to Rihanna’s career either:

Whenever I’ve met her, she’s been the most gracious, loyal and funny goofball of an icon.
She genuinely doesn’t give a f-ck; she’s fearless and full of all the right kind of attitude to be everything that she is and will be forever.


A fairly glowing review from someone with 15 Grammys. What more could Rihanna ask for? You can read the profile in its entirety here.
