Lizzo wants to team up with her pal Adele.

But rather than sing, the US star is keen to play the flute on one of the Londoner’s ballads.

Asked about a collaboration Lizzo says: “We’ve never talked about that. You know, what I’d do with Adele is play the flute. I’d play flute as she is that kind of artist.”

Adele is the superstar Lizzo turns to for advice on work and fame – even though the I Drink Wine singer thinks her own rise was easier.

Lizzo explains: “When she first came out the culture was so different, and especially with social media.

“Adele called me and was like, ‘Lizzo, how do you f***ing do it? Are you okay? Do you want to come over and drink some wine. Do you want to talk?’ And I was like, yeah.”

She says of the singer’s support: “Adele saw me literally in a different font. It was really sweet.

“Shouting out my documentary the other day… she didn’t have to.

“She texted to say, ‘I f***ing hate documentaries unless you’re Tina Turner or The Beatles, but this is so f***ing good.’ And I was like, thank you.

“I look up to her a lot. She knows who she is and she honours that with every album.

“She gave us piano ballads that go to No1, which is so hard and rare.

“She’s the rarest gem of all time. We need her. I am grateful for her.”
