Adele has told how she nearly killed P Diddy – after charging at the rapper while in a golf buggy.
The Chasing Pavements singer, 22, was driving around a studio site in Los Angeles, where she was meant to be filming a video for one of her tracks, when she lost control.
She told The Sun: “I was shooting a video on one of the big American plots, six hours I was there and I wasn’t doing anything. So I convinced someone to let me drive a golf buggy. I ran the battery out by the end of the day.
“P Diddy must have been doing a fragrance advert or something. I was in the buggy with a mate and I saw him. I meant to put the brake on and go, ‘Oh, you’re P Diddy!’ But I hit the accelerator. He had to dive out the way. As we went past I was like, ‘You’re P Diddy’. He just said, ‘Yeah, I know’. I almost, almost killed him.”
The singer, whose new album is due out out later this month, also told how she mistook US politician Sarah Palin for comedy star Tina Fey, who performs a sketch about the former governor of Alaska on Saturday Night Live.
Adele’s new album, 21, has already reached the top of the chart in Germany, Italy and Holland and is out in the UK on January 24
