This songbird won't be tweeting any tunes for a while.
For this second time this year, Adele has been forced to scrap a sold-out U.S. tour due to illness, with the British pop star assuring fans that she's as "devastated and annoyed" by the setback as they are.
It was a bad case of laryngitis that shut her North American tour down at the beginning of the summer. So, what's plaguing the "Rolling in the Deep" singer's tender throat this time?
According to Columbia Records, Adele has a vocal cord hemorrhage and doctors have advised her to take "an extended rest period" to ensure that she properly recovers.
"Singing is literally my life, its my hobbie, my love, my freedom and now my job," the artist wrote on her capital letter-eschewing blog. "I have absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly and fully, or i risk damaging my voice forever.
"i have great confidence in believing you know how much this upsets me, how seriously i take it and how truly devastated and annoyed i am by this. wanting to do something so bad and not being able to is the most frustrating thing as im sure you know! my voice is weak and i need to build it back up. I'm gonna be starting up vocal rehab as soon as, and start building my over all stamina in my voice, body and mind. i will be back and im gonna smash the ball out the park once im touring again."
All shows between Oct. 7 and Oct. 21 have been canceled and full refunds are available at the point of purchase.
"i apologise from the bottom of my heart, sincerely i do," Adele continued. "i know its not only disappointing because of the show, but its plane tickets, hotel bookings, birthdays, anniversaries and time wasted. but please have faith in me that this is the only thing i can do to make sure i can always sing and always make music for you to the best of my ability. truly yours and yours only forever, adele xx."
We wish her a harmonious recovery!
