Immortality is something that seems completely inaccessible, but recent studies show that one sea creature, Turritopsis Dohrnii, has already revealed how to live forever!!
The entity, which is better known as the Immortal Jellyfish, was found on the ocean floor in 1988 by a German marine-biology student, Christian Sommer while he was snorkeling off the cliffs of Portofino.
Molecular paleobiologist, Kevin J. Peterson expressed that "there’s a shocking amount of genetic similarity between jellyfish and human beings," adding:

We're thrilled to hear that he's doing so well!
To recap - back in November, we learned that Keith Urban was scheduled to have throat surgery to get rid of a polyp that had developed on his vocal chords.
Earlier today, we were very pleased to hear that Keith had scheduled his triumphant post-surgery return to the stage for February 3rd at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee!
Now, Keith has opened up about the recovery process he went through following his surgery. Here's what he had to say about it:

We're sure some country fans will be excited to hear this news.
Following vocal cord surgery late last year, Keith Urban is scheduled to return to stage on February 3rd at the Grand Ole Opry.
The Nashville, Tennessee concert will be Keith's first time singing since last November because he's been on vocal rest after a successful surgery removed a polyp from his vocal cord.
Glad to hear you're all healed up, Keith. Good luck at the show!

We knew she'd stay strong through this!
Last we heard about Adele's throat issues, her reps issued a statement assuring us that even though she was going on for throat surgery, it was NOT because of cancer.
Now, Adele's surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital is complete, and operating doctor Steve Zeitels has announced that that he expects Adele to make a full recovery! Hooray!
Here's a statement released from the hospital following her procedure:
