The singer, 34, is nominated for seven awards including three in the Big Four – Record of the Year, Song of the Year for ‘Easy On Me’ and Album of the Year for 30.

The singer confirmed she will be in attendance of the 65th Grammy Awards and ‘would never disrespect’ the ceremony like that.

In the clip of Adele on stage which surfaced on Twitter, she asked the audience: ‘Who said I wasn’t going to the Grammys!’ 

She slammed the claim: ‘Man, whoever started that rumour is a d***head! I am going to the Grammys. I would never miss the Grammys. 

‘I would never be as disrespectful to the Grammys or to other artists. Whoever started that little story needs to go touch some grass. Go get some fresh air’.

Beyonce, 40, has now matched the nominations given to her husband Jay-Z as the couple have both tallied up a total of 88 each of the years.

The 52-year-old mogul held the previous record of 83 and racked up another five bringing them to the same total.

Not far behind the Queen Bey were British singing megastars Adele and Harry Styles who both earned seven and six, respectively. 

Rapper Kendrick Lamar had the second most nominations with eight as singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile also tied Adele with seven.
