Following a vocal hemorrhage and a string of cancelled tour dates, Adele will undergo throat surgery to fix the problems with her vocal cords. She's expected to make a full recovery, though her remaining 2011 concerts have also been called off. Before you get too worried, remember the same thing just happened to R. Kelly, and he's already back to recording triumphantly skeezy albums. We have faith, Adele! Feel better soon. [ArtsBeat/NYT]
