Adele Talks Vocal Injury On 60 Minutes With Anderson Cooper
CBS’ 60 Minutes is all set to air their exclusive interview with Grammy nominee Adele. The “Rolling In The Deep” sate down with Anderson Cooper to talk about her recent throat operation.
“I love talking,” said the singer. Adele was writing on a notepad as a way to communicate with family and friends after the surgery. She also found a helpful phone application, which helped her express herself thoroughly. “The great thing is I love to swear. Most of [the apps] you can’t swear on,” she said. “But I found this one app where you can swear, so I’m still really getting my point across.”
Adele made big headlines this past year for her 21 album dominating the charts in spite of suffering from her major throat injury. She described feeling it as a a sudden burst. “Like someone put a curtain over my throat…and I could feel it,” says Adele, “It felt like something popped in my throat.”
That burst or “pop” was later identified as a polyp on her vocal cord that was aggravated by massive bleeding from a ruptured blood vessels. ”I had laser surgery. [They] put lasers down your throat, cut off the polyp and kind of laser your hemorrhage back together and fix it,” Adele said.
Adele will perform for the first time after her November surgery at the 54th annual Grammy awards following her 60 Minutes interview. The interview airs Sunday at 7pm ET/PT on CBS. Check out the preview clip provided by CBS News below.
