We LOVE Adele, but were very unhappy to learn she smokes.
It may be a perfectly legal personal choice, but we just can't agree with it because of how unhealthy it is.
We're not alone either! 80s music icon Boy George also thinks Adele and any other singer should give up smoking to prolong their career, saying:
"If you’re a singer and you smoke it really isn’t a great idea. I gave up smoking six months ago which was the best thing I ever did. I used to try to convince myself it made me sound jazzier. It was very difficult to give up but I’m so glad I did."
Although Adele adamantly expressed her love for smoking and has even said she's more likely to quit singing before she quits smoking, we think she should at least CONSIDER Boy George's (and our) advice!
She successfully underwent throat surgery a few weeks ago and had to cancel all of her remaining 2011 tour dates as a result, but is expecting a full recovery. Although her medical condition was not related to smoking, we have a feeling cigarettes can only make it worse.
We'll support that voice no matter what, gurl, but don't expect us to support a life threatening smoking habit!
