Adele has revealed that she adopts an alter-ego based on Beyonce and singer/actress June Carter to get pumped up before shows.

The Brit singer has called the character she adopts 'Sasha Carter', which she invented just before meeting the former Destiny's Child singer.

"I was about to meet Beyonce," she recalled to Rolling Stone. "I had a full-blown panic attack. Then she popped in looking gorgeous and said, 'You're amazing!'. When I listen to you I feel like I'm listening to God'."

She added: "I went out on the balcony crying hysterically, and I said, 'What would Sasha Fierce [Beyonce's alter-ego] do? That's when Sasha Carter was born."
