SYLVESTER STALLONE

“Adele?! She’s magnificent. You don’t like Adele? Haha.”

___

SELENA GOMEZ

“I don’t think I’ve met someone who is not an Adele fan, to be honest. How can you not be? I am looking forward to her album. I think she’s such an incredible, special artist. She does what she wants to do and she has her own life, is able to live it, and she lets everybody focus on the music _ which is what it’s all about.”

___

BAZ LUHRMANN

“There is just no precedent for Adele. There’s no comparison for Adele. She came out of apparently nowhere and is tremendously gifted. She plays only by her own musical rules. Just when you think you know what’s going to happen, she drops the perfect opening single. She is Adele _ it’s as simple as that.”

But how does she fit in a Baz Luhrmann film? “Any role she’d like.”

CHRISTINA AGUILERA

“I’ve always been a fan of hers. She’s just amazing, incredible, marches to the beat of her own drum _ such a groundbreaking artist, tried and true _ and the world needs more of `em, you know? So go Adele!”

___

MARY J. BLIGE

“I haven’t heard the album, but the single is beautiful. She’s Adele and she’s going to do something beautiful every time.”

___

SHARON AND KELLY OSBOURNE

Kelly Osbourne: “Excuse me (she starts singing `Hello.’) Who hasn’t heard that song? She’s got a voice with the cadence that when she really goes for it warms your soul hearing it and you can’t not want to sing along. I feel what she’s feeling and I think that’s what’s so special about her.”

Sharon Osbourne: “I tell you we’ve been counting down the days for this album to come out.”

___

RICK ROSS

“Her voice is powerful. I’ve always been fascinated with it, and always imagined me and her collaborating. What better way to enjoy one of her newest records and put my spin on it?” said Ross, who remixed “Hello.”

“I hope she heard it, and hopefully she likes it. If not, then you know, maybe we can meet in the future. It was a beautiful record, maybe one of the most powerful we may see in this time frame of music.”

___

KACEY MUSGRAVES

“Adele can do no wrong. That’s all I will say. Yeah. …She’s given some props to some Nashville songwriters, which I thought is really cool. I think Chris Stapleton has an Adele cut even. So good for her, yeah.”

___

JOHN LEGEND

“She’s phenomenal. She’s a great singer and makes great songs and she’s one of the best artists out right now. I’m happy for her and her success, and looking forward to hearing her album.”
