Rich-list first-timer Adele: Rihanna makes me feel a bit gay

Rich-list debutant Adele has said that Rihanna makes her feel "a bit gay".

The 'Someone Like You' hitmaker – who is straight – has been infatuated with the Bajan beauty since she saw her perform on Simon Cowell's talent search show 'The X Factor' last year, and says the 'Rude Boy' singer's "stunning thighs" made her feel "a bit gay".

She said: "If Rihanna wanted me, I'd do it with her. She's hot. She had pinstripe flares on. She whipped them off and there were her stunning thighs. I said to all my girlfriends, 'Are you feeling a bit gay right now?"

Despite the 23-year-old singer's girl crush on Rihanna she still loves boys but finds her singledom increasingly "depressing".

Adele added in an interview with The Sun newspaper: "I love boys, love men. I am fascinated by them even though at times they let you down and hurt me. But right now I am more single than ever. It's so depressing."

Two things likely to cheer up the singer are her entry onto the Sunday Times Rich List (the authors reckon she's worth about €6.7m) and a karaoke bash she's hosting for her 23rd birthday tonight, where she is planning to belt out R Kelly's hit 'Ignition'.

She said: "I'm having a karaoke party. I’ll be singing R Kelly’s 'Ignition'. I’ve been learning my harmonies all day.”
