After bagging 11 Grammy awards and raking millions of dollars, Pharrell Williams doesn't consider himself as his most admired artist in the world.

Speaking at the Cannes Lions festival on Tuesday, June 23, Pharrell revealed that the artist he most admires is British singer, Adele.

In a packed auditorium on stage being interviewed by American Idol host Ryan Seacrest, Pharrell, 42, revealed to the audience that Adele is a 'masterful writer'.

When asked which artist today was 'getting it right', the Happy producer replied: ''Without a doubt, Adele. I just think she is a masterful writer, if you listen to her album, it lives and breathes.''

Seacrest then asked: ''Have you seen her recently?'' To which Pharrell replied with a smile: ''Yes.'' But did not say if they'll be doing a song to

gether any time soon.

After a huge round of applause from the audience, Pharrell said the Rolling In The Deep singer, whose 21 is the biggest-selling album of the decade to date in the UK at more than 4.75 million copies, was very rare, but admitted that she doesn’t engage with the public very often.
