Pink - Pink Hails 'Influential' Adele

Pop punk Pink has heaped praise on Adele in a new magazine article, hailing the soul star a "unique package".
The Someone Like You hitmaker has been named among the Time 100 list of the world's most influential people and Pink jumped at the chance to pay homage to the talented Brit, who has spent the past 18 months topping charts around the globe and scooping a record-equalling six Grammy Awards.
In the article welcoming Adele to Time's exclusive club, Pink writes, "There are a few artists in my life who I can think back and remember where I was when I first heard them. When you're so utterly moved by something that you know you'll never be the same again.
"When I first heard Adele, I was on tour, alone in a hotel room in London, watching her sing from a rooftop on YouTube - a song called Hometown Glory. I thought, 'Who is this creature? This voice! Her tone! Why is the entire world not watching this video?
"I'm always so happy when the world catches on to something great. Especially when it's authentic talent, great songwriting and a unique package. I am so relieved that Adele possesses the kind of beauty that she does, that she's crass and funny and that she sings live - and incredibly.
"Her success renews hope in me that the world I live in has good taste - that we still occasionally come back to what's simple, and simply amazing. I can't wait to hear what she does next."
Pink isn't the only celebrity fan who has written an article in praise of Adele - Julia Roberts did the same for Entertainment Weekly last year (11).
