In a preview released Wednesday, the 23-year-old singer told Anderson Cooper that it was difficult not to speak one word during a five-week period late last year following the surgery.
“It was really hard,” she admitted, before confessing that she loved “talking.” So how did she overcome it? By writing on notepads and using phone applications.
“I also had an application on my phone. You type the words into it and then it speaks it,” said Adele. “The great thing is, because I love to swear — most of them you can’t swear — I found this one app whre you can swear, so I’m still getting my point across.”
In early November, the singer had surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston to stop bleeding on a benign polyp on her vocal cords after canceling the rest of her U.K. and U.S. tours.
Last week, it was announced that the “Someone Like You” star will perform during the Grammy Awards on Sunday, marking her first time singing live in months.
The full 60 Minutes interview airs Sunday at 7 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
