According to the Wakey Wakey News
British soul singer Adele, who was recently named the most powerful person in the UK music industry, has had to cancel the remaining concert dates on her sold-out North American tour because of laryngitis. “I’m really frustrated,” she wrote on her website. “I was hoping with a weeks’ rest I’d be better to sing again straight away. However there is absolutely nothing I can do but take the doctor’s advice and rest some more. I’m so sorry.” She is hoping to be able to resume her tour for its upcoming European dates.
It’s not the 23-year-old’s first bout with laryngitis, or inflammation of the vocal chords. She recently told British Glamour that she had the problem once before, about a week before her latest album came out. The episode frightened her, she confessed, and she decided to try to live a healthier lifestyle, quitting smoking, drinking, caffeine, and citrus foods. But she soon found the new regimen “boring” and quit. “It was f**king grim… When my album went to number one here [in Britain] and in America, I just sat in my room and watched TV because I couldn’t go out and talk to anyone.” Adele admitted that her voice sounded noticeably better when she was not smoking, but went on to say, “I’d rather my voice be a bit s**t so I can have a f**king laugh.”
Adele also told Q Magazine that she wouldn’t be doing any big music festivals this summer despite some lucrative offers, partly because she is prone to anxiety attacks in front of large crowds, but also because she’d rather be sitting in London’s Brockwell Park with her friends drinking (hard) cider. She went on to say that she doesn’t have any interest in exercising, either. “I don’t want to go down the f**king gym. I want to go to the pub with my mates. I can’t be bothered. It’s not even lazy, it’s just other things thrill me in life.”
Now that her laryngitis has returned and is affecting her ability to perform for fans, Adele may want to revisit the idea of returning to a healthier lifestyle. Certainly some of her supporters hope she does. Fan Trent Vanegas wrote on her website, “Dear Adele, please quit smoking. Thank you!” And Amanda Kirschner said the singer should “take the time to think about the contents of your ashtray…we love you, pray for you, and support you in taking whatever necessary steps to get better, and not just with your throat.” Well said.
MY Word: Right now Adele you have the world by the balls WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU ? I’m a need you to get it together
