Jennifer Lawrence’s Essay About How Great Adele Is Will Bring Tears To Your Eyes

Jennifer Lawrence wrote an essay on Adele for TIME’s 100 Most Influential People Issue.

Let’s be real, Adele is at least 73 of those 100 people. You know it, I know it, and Jennifer Lawrence knows it, if her essay is anything to go by. This is what she had to say about Adele’s 21.

“Suddenly there were words to that before-indescribable pain, frustration, sadness, then revolution that all comes from a breakup. I felt understood, I felt stronger, and above all, I hadn’t sung in front of a mirror with a hairbrush since Destiny’s Child.”

#Beautiful. J-Law also had some s**t to say about 25 that will melt your heart.

“Her 500-year-old wisdom. Her patience and kindness all wrapped up in the tough skin of a damn gangster.”

Adele and J-Law don’t just have a professional respect, but are also bros who have been spotted hanging out together, even though their friendship started out mostly with Jennifer Lawrence losing her s**t, as per usual.

“Adele and I met at the Oscars 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. I had been a fan of hers since “Chasing Pavements” (saying “fan” about Adele always sounds like an understatement, doesn’t it?).”

Above all, this is what she had to say about Adele herself.

“Adele is a gift, an international treasure, but she’s also sweet, funny, intelligent and beautiful. Bitch.”

I don’t particularly like Adele’s singing but I do love Jennifer and she is becoming quite the essay writer. Just another string to her bow I guess. All the nice things she says about Adele, I think about her (apart from the ‘b’ word). She is far more intelligent and witty than some give her credit for. As a Brit I think she is a credit to Kentucky and the United States as a whole. Look after her, America
