Although she was the main attraction at the Grammy Awards on 12.02.12, leaving the ceremony with six prizes, the 23-year-old singer doesn`t enjoy attending glitzy events because all the attention freaks her out.
She revealed: "I hate the red carpet. I don`t feel insecure, I just feel like, `Oh, I don`t want to do this.` I literally get a stomach cramp. At the VMAs last year I felt really out of my comfort zone because there were so many superstars there. But that`s been the case from day one. I never feel like, `Oh, yeah, I should be here.` And I was missing my best friend`s hen night. So I was a bit bitter that I wasn`t there, to be perfectly honest."
However, being invited to A-list events does have some perks for Adele.
One thing the `Rolling in the Deep` hitmaker remembers vividly is meeting her biggest musical idol Beyonce Knowles.
Adele - who shares her middle name Blue with Beyonce`s baby daughter Blue Ivy - told Vogue magazine: "Beyonce has been a huge and constant part of my life as an artist since I was about 10 or 11. I love how all of her songs are about empowerment. Even when she`s married and Jay-Z put a ring on it, she releases `Single Ladies`. Go get yours. Go get what you deserve. I think she`s really inspiring. She`s beautiful. She`s ridiculously talented, and she is one of the kindest people I`ve ever met. I`m the total opposite. I can moan my ass off; I can be lazy. She makes me want to do things with my life."
