Adele Opens Up About Throat Surgery Before Grammys

'It was really hard. I love talking,' singer says during '60 Minutes' special.

Sunday is shaping up to be quite a big day for [artist id="2476941"]Adele[/artist]. Not only is the big-voiced diva up for six awards at the Grammys, but she will also open up about her recent throat surgery in a "60 Minutes" interview, airing on CBS immediately before the awards show.

In a teaser for the TV special, the British songstress speaks with Anderson Cooper about her vocal-cord procedure as well as how she dealt with the post-surgery restrictions. "They put lasers down your throat, cut off the polyp and kind of laser your hemorrhage back together and fix it," Adele wearily told the news anchor.

She was ordered not to speak a word throughout the months of November and December, but the songstress made the best of a not-so-bright situation by using notepads and a text-to-speech cellphone application to communicate with others.

"It was really hard. I love talking," she said.

The singer confessed that the advances in technology made it a little difficult to say what was really on her mind. "I love to swear, and most of them you can't swear on, but I found this one app where you can swear, so I'm still really getting my point across," she said with a smile.

Adele's road to recovery will come full-circle when the singer performs at Sunday night's Grammys. The U.K. songstress recently tweeted her excitement about returning to the stage: "Ima be, Ima be singing at the Grammys. It's been so long I started to forget I was a singer! I can't wait."
