The singer, who has been forced to cancel her ten-date US tour because of a vocal cord complaint, said: “Smoking is not the reason I got laryngitis – it was because I was talking too much.
“I damage my voice offstage, not onstage.
“Onstage I am fine as apparently I am technically great, but when I talk I damage my voice big time. I have got screwed into giving up smoking.
“If I wasn’t a singer I still would be smoking 25 a day.
“Smoking is my favourite thing to do in the world, I am gutted I have had to give up.
“But I have been tough – no patches, no gum, no hypnotism.
“It f****** sucks.”
It doesn’t suck as much as the other consequences though, eh, Adele? Madness.
