Because she's a beautiful unicorn of a songstress, Adele made it onto Time's 2016 installment of its annual 100 Most Influential People List (once again). Following tradition, an equally well-known person wrote a short explainer for why that person is deserving of the honor. Obviously, no explanation is needed for why the singer of 19, 21, and 25 is so influential. Nonetheless, award-winning cool girl Jennifer Lawrence provided one. Titled "International Treasure," Lawrence's mini-essay on Adele is a treasure, too.
First off, Lawrence recalls meeting Adele in 2013. "I remember sneaking backstage while she performed 'Skyfall,' trying to squeeze a ball gown past a pile of ropes and cables just to get a little closer. See her from another angle as if to peek behind the Great Oz’s curtain." Only, of course, this wizard is the real deal.

Then Lawrence goes on to praise Adele, all while slipping in a Destiny's Child reference. "I felt understood," Lawrence wrote of 21. "I felt stronger, and above all, I hadn’t sung in front of a mirror with a hairbrush since Destiny’s Child." Winning back the popular vote there, Lawrence.
"The way she is able to capture herself, and then in turn us, has turned her into a star that’s not a star we look at, but a giant star with its own gravity that we are drawn to." Poetically perfect.
After further showering accolades on Adele and the singer's "500-year-old wisdom," Lawrence moves on to a more unexpected reason why Adele is hot shit. "But what you don’t see is what a wonderful mother she is," Lawrence wrote. "What a wonderful partner and friend she is. That she makes her son’s Halloween costumes." And she lets him wear Frozen costumes, too.
"Adele is a gift," Lawrence concluded," an international treasure, but she’s also sweet, funny, intelligent and beautiful. Bitch."
So, who do you love more right now, Adele or J. Law? Fortunately, there's enough love in the world that both these women can be worshipped equally.
