ORIGINAL STORY: Adele has been ordered by doctors to stop singing and avoid talking for at least a month as she seeks to recover from laryngitis, according to reports.
The singer, whose '21' album returned to the top of the Billboard chart last week, was forced to cancel her North American tour earlier this month after her condition showed no sign of improvement.
She wrote on her official website at the time, "I'm really frustrated. 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 doctors advice and rest some more. I'm so sorry."
In part attributed to her inability to stop smoking, it now appears that her condition has yet to improve. A source was quoted by the News of the World saying (via Digital Spy), "Adele's voice is very special. But if she continues to abuse it in the way she has, then she could lose it completely. The problem is that she's now back in London and seeing her mates like the comedian Alan Carr, and all she wants to do is have a gossip with them."
Rest those pipes, Adele.
