Adele Graces Cover Of US Vogue Magazine
"Lots of artists have had problems with their voices, but you don't know about it. And they are still singing incredibly well in their 50s and 60s."
Instead of dwelling on her surgery, Adele then went on to confess she was grateful for the break from her hectic career, stating: "I think I just needed to be silenced. And when you are silent, everyone else around you is silent. So the noise in my life just stopped.
"I had so much time to kind of go over things and get over things, which is amazing. I think if I hadn't had my voice trouble, I would never have broached those subjects with myself.
"Now I just feel really at peace. And really proud of myself. I've never fully appreciated the things that I've achieved until now. In fact, my entire life has changed in the last ten weeks. I've never been so happy, and I love it."
