Adele has banned herself from going to watch Rihanna perform in a concert at Wembley, just incase she gets accidentally stoned and damages her vocal chords.
Adele who will be headlining Glastonbury the night after Rihanna’s Wembley gig, announced to the crowd at the O2 Arena on Saturday night she’d have to find another date to see the “Work” singer
“I love her,” Adele told fans at the O2. “I’m thinking of going to Coventry to watch Rihanna because she’s playing Wembley the day before I play Glastonbury, and if I go to that, I’ll have no voice, I know it. All that weed in the air – I’ll get stoned.”
“But I love her, honestly, all of that new album I love. I gotta try and see her.” During Friday evening’s show at the O2, Adele announced live on stage that she would be headlining the annual festival this year, closing the Pyramid Stage on the Saturday night.
The 27-year-old singer and mom has to be very careful with her vocal chords, after she underwent a throat surgery in 2011 when a polyp on her vocal cord haemorrhaged. Speaking about what happened in 2012, Adele said that her voice just “went” while she was singing live on French radio.
“Like someone put a curtain over my throat…and I could feel it. It felt like something popped in my throat,” Adele said. “I had laser surgery,” she explained. [They] put lasers down your throat, cut off the polyp, and kind of laser your haemorrhage back together and fix it.”
