ADELE has broken an enforced silence to explain how she used an iPhone app to swear after doctors banned her from speaking.
The popstar was told by doctors not to speak for the two months last year and resorted to scribbling notes on a pad and using a smartphone app that would speak aloud her typed words.
“I had an application on my phone that you type the words into it and then it speaks it,” she told the American network CBS. “But the great thing is I love to swear.
"Most [apps] you can’t swear on, but I found this one app where you can swear, so I’m still really getting my point across.”
She briefly described the laser surgery doctors performed to save the her singing voice.
"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.”
The platinum award-winning artist behind 24 told of the moment her voice gave out on French radio. "[It was] like someone put a curtain over my throat… and I could feel it. It felt like something popped in my throat".
Adele will return to the stage for Sunday's Grammy awards in Los Angeles.
