Published Sep 23, 2016Adele is known for her powerhouse voice, but according to the singer, it was a lot more powerful when she was still smoking cigarettes.
In a recent interview on Canada's own etalk [via the Hamilton Spectator], Adele revealed that her voice is "weaker" since she quit hacking darts.
"The people with the best voices, they always smoke," she said. "I've given up smoking and I'm convinced that's made my voice weaker."
The 28-year-old kicked the habit back in 2011 after undergoing surgery for a vocal cord haemorrhage. She also revealed that sticking to the lifestyle change proved especially difficult while Adele was collaborating with Bruno Mars on her 25 track "All I Ask."
"Bruno smokes like an old woman," she said.
And he wasn't the only one that made her hyper-aware of the abundance of smokers around her. "My make-up artist will stink after having a fag. I had never noticed it before."
Despite the fear that her voice has lost its edge after kissing cigs goodbye, Adele is at least grateful that her fingers aren't looking so orange anymore.
Canadian fans can judge for themselves how the UK singer's voice is sounding these days when she comes through our home and native land next week on her North American tour.
