Adele was voted the Pop Artist of the Year by the listeners of a gay radio station, making her a gay icon. Congrats, Adele, on yet another honor. Is there anyone on this planet that doesn’t adore you?

The ‘Someone Like You’ singer nabbed 55 percent of the vote. Her closest competition? That vowed champion of the homosexual community known as Lady Gaga. The Mother Monster raked in just 10 percent the vote. A total of 4,000 listeners participated and Adele won by a landslide.

It is surprising that Gaga’s tally is so low. She has dedicated so much of her fame to advancing gay causes and supporting the community — conventional wisdom would dictate that she’d be neck and neck with Adele.

The Sun reports that Gaydar progammer Robin Crowley pointed how the cultural ramifications of winning this award, saying, with tongue planted firmly in cheek, that “Adele has numerous Grammys and Brits, but this is the accolade she’s been waiting for.”

First Gaga was unseated by Rihanna on Facebook! Now her gay icon status is being challenged by Adele. Stats aside, it’s clear that the pop universe is clearly ruled by the divas.
