It turns out that British singing sensation Adele loves smoking cigarettes. Well, maybe love is too strong a word, but she certainly puts cigarettes in her mouth and smokes them. I guess there is a sweet spot, just before cigarettes ruin your voice, where it actually makes it sound better.
Anyways, if I had a million-dollar voice, which I don’t, I certainly would not be ruining it by smoking cigarettes. But to each is own, I’m sure she has her reasons.
It seems that the reasons are that Adele found her life too boring when she quit drinking and smoking cigarettes, which is why she started again. In her own words:
My voice was better when I wasn’t smoking. Within a week I noticed it had changed, but I’d rather my voice be a bit s**t so I can have a f**king laugh.
Well, because of that, the news are that she needed to cancel what was left of her North American tour because of laryingitis, made worse by her addiction to nicotine. She is now ordered by her doctors to refrain from speaking, or singing, for an entire month, in order to save her voice.
