Though her emotional records reflect discord in the romance department, singer Adele is in high spirits as she recovers from throat surgery.
The Brit sensation had been downsizing a massive U.S. tour because of the condition (irritation around her vocal chords) before canceling the whole of her 2011 dates on doctor's orders.
"Thank you for all your positive thoughts and get well wishes. I’m doing really well, on the mend, super happy, relaxed and very positive with it all," she wrote on her website. "The operation was a success and I'm just chilling out now until I get the all clear from my doctors."
She's even cracking jokes, adding, "I best get back to practicing my mime show now."
The surgery was performed in early November, coincidentally when Adele had plans to head into the studio, possibly to record a theme for the next James Bond movie, "Skyfall." No word on a potential replacement, or if film producers are waiting for those pipes to heal.
