The majesty of a post–Lemonade world is a lot like cycling through grief: You can be having a totally normal day, you're functioning as a person, you're standing upright, and then all of the sudden, out of nowhere, like the target of a heat-seeking missile, you are knocked out by an overwhelming force. Adele, being a person other than Beyoncé, is not immune. During a recent stop on her 25 tour, the singer interrupted the wrenching of her heart to talk about how great, like messiah-level great, Beyoncé is. Per Adele, Beyoncé is "Jesus fucking Christ." And as with all deities, coming to accept a power so much greater than yourself involves some reckoning. Preached the disciple, "How is it even possible that she only ever gets better? How is that possible?... Beyoncé is the sickest artist around in the whole entire world. It’s unbelievable." And yet, as faith beckons, we believe.
