Ariana Grande ordered to stop singing, suffered vocal cord hemorrhage
Ariana Grande has been ordered to do something rising singing superstars dread -- stop singing.
The singer and Nickelodeon star was ordered by her doctors to stop singing immediately after suffering a vocal cord hemorrhage. The singer consequently was forced to cancel upcoming performances to promote her debut album, "Yours Truly," due to the condition.
A physician spoke about the condition on "Good Morning America," saying, "A vocal cord hemorrhage is when some of the tiny blood vessels within the soft tissue of the vocal cord ruptures, causing essentially a bruise. It's important to rest the voice in order to prevent long-term damage."
Grande tweeted about her vocal ordeal to her more than 9 million Twitter followers on Sept. 11, saying, "Thank you guys for the well wishes, I'll be better in no time, just need some rest."
She followed up with another tweet later in the day to further explain what happened, saying, "For those of u asking about my voice I screamed too much at my party totally irresponsible but it's better now, thanks for the well wishes."
The ordered vocal rest comes the same week of the "Sam & Cat" star's album, "Yours Truly," debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, becoming only the 15th solo female artist in the chart's history to have a first album debut at No. 1, a feat she now shares with the likes of Beyonce, Britney Spears and Kelly Clarkson, according to Billboard. The album was proceeded by the hit singles "The Way," featuring rapper Mac Miller, and "Baby I," both of which peaked within the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100.
Grande tweeted about her excitement for the album's success, saying, "My 1st album has debuted at #1 & I can't even begin to express my gratitude. Thank you for supporting my music, this really means the world."
