‘Hello’ hitmaker Adele ditched the cigarettes five years ago as she feared her habit would eventually kill her, but has admitted her tone has altered a lot since she packed in the fags and she’s no longer capable of holding the high notes.
Speaking to Canada’s ‘etalk’, she said: “The people with the best voices, they always smoke. I’ve given up smoking and I’m convinced that’s made my voice weaker.”
And working with chain-smoker Bruno Mars on her hit track ‘All I Ask’ last year made her realize how much she misses smoking.
She explained: “Bruno smokes like an old woman. My make-up artist will stink after having a fag. I had never noticed it before.”
But, although she wishes kicking her addiction half a decade ago hadn’t altered her voice, she’s pleased she’s no longer got stained fingers.
She added: “But my fingers ain’t orange anymore.”
And cigarettes aren’t the only thing the 28-year-old singer – who has three-year-old son Angelo with her partner Simon Konecki – has given up over the years as she’s also been warned that scoffing cheesy pizza – her favourite food – could damage her throat and give her acid reflux.
She told her fans at a show recently: “I can’t eat pizza anymore! How bad is that? Because it’s got cooked tomatoes on it which are bad for your throat and give you acid reflux. How bad is that, I can’t eat pizza.”
Despite how much she loves naughty grub, Adele is determined to do all she can to prolong her voice after she suffered a haemorrhage on her vocal cords in 2011, which led to her axing her world tour in order to undergo surgery.
