Boy George - Boy George Urges Adele To Quit Smoking
Former chain-smoker Boy George has urged Adele to give up cigarettes to save her voice.
The Culture Club frontman quit earlier this year (11) and now he wants Rolling in the Deep singer Adele to do the same in a bid to fix the health woes that have plagued her for months.
He tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "If you're a singer and you smoke it really isn't a great idea. 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."
Adele recently underwent surgery to remove a bleeding polyp in her throat, which prompted her to scrap a series of concerts in Europe and North America.
