One of the most famous singers in the world, Adele reacted to Perry’s sudden passing. Even though she never met the actor in person, it doesn’t mean she didn’t appreciate and value him from afar. She paid her tributes to Perry at her show, saying, “I’ll remember that character for the rest of my life. He’s probably the best comedic character of all time.” She praised him for his openness and ability to be “so open with his struggles with addiction and sobriety,” which is “incredibly, incredibly brave.”
She went on to say, “It is always so shocking, especially someone who made you laugh and who brought so much joy to your life that you don’t know. This is what I find so strange, I never met him in my life. There is something, you feel so sad about it especially because you don’t necessarily know what was going on.” And even though none of us have ever met Perry, we can safely say it feels like we know him, even if slightly. She recalled a time from childhood and how much of an impact Perry had on her life. “One of my favorite memories of when I was younger, with my friends, and one of my friends Andrew when I was 12 did the best Chandler impression, and he would do it all the time to make us laugh. And if anyone was having a bad day or feeling low, he would pretend to be Chandler. And I will remember that character for the rest of my life.” (via Rolling Stone).
