`Glee` star Amber Riley wants to be friends with Adele

Los Angeles: Amber Riley wants British singer Adele to live with her in the US and be her best friend.

The 25-year-old actress, who plays Mercedes Jones in the hit show, says she was was thrilled when the British singer emailed her after seeing her perform on one of her tracks in the musical drama but the US star now wants to take their bond even further, reported E! online.

"When I covered Adele`s song, she emailed to thank me. I love Adele, I want her to be my best friend. She could come to the US, live with me and sing to me every morning,"

Riley feels she has a responsibility to her young fans and tries to be a role model.

"I feel like I have a responsibility to young girls. When you`re a celebrity, you have two choices - you`re either just famous, or you can be an example. "I chose to be a role model. I get a lot of letters from young girls and they need somebody who looks like them, someone who isn`t what you`d expect in Hollywood," she said.

"I`m very different to that standard image and I think they can relate to that," she added.
