Kelly Clarkson has confessed that she is guilty of "stalking" Adele through her interviews.
The 'Mr Know It All' singer, who recently said that she is "in awe" of Adele, revealed that she has been desperate to collaborate with the 'Set Fire to the Rain' singer for years.
"I'm stalking her currently through interviews. Every interview, they are like, 'Who do you want to work with?' 'Adele! I want to do a duet with Adele!'" Clarkson told MTV News.
"I've been stalking her since we did '[VH1] Divas' together, actually, and we were supposed to sing together, and then they changed the concept to where we would sing with somebody from a different generation. That was actually really cool, because I got to sing with Melissa Etheridge, and she's amazing. That wasn't like a letdown or anything, but I've been trying to sing with [Adele] for a while."
Clarkson went on to say that she believes that competition between female artists is not only okay, but healthy, adding: "We're all very different from each other, which I think is good. It keeps it not boring."
She was recently confirmed as a headliner for the 2011 VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul concert alongside Florence + the Machine, Jessie J, Mary J Blige, Jill Scott and Jennifer Hudson.
Meanwhile, Adele has cancelled all of her remaining 2011 concert dates and promotional appearances in order to undergo throat surgery for a haemorrhaged vocal cord.
