Adele had a monster 2011, with her 21 album selling more copies in the US than any other album. However, she was required to have throat surgery, which forced her to cancel all promotional appearances and performances for the last few months of the year. She is reportedly aiming to make a return to the stage at the Grammy Awards in February.
A source close to the singer had told Radar Online Tuesday that she plans on attending the ceremony in Los Angeles. The source added that producers have even asked her to perform, but she has not given them an answer yet. “She won't be able to give them an answer until the beginning of February, and they completely understand," said the source.
The New York Daily News also noted that the source gave Radar Online an update on Adele’s health. “She has begun talking more, with her doctor's permission,” adding, “Adele's best friend in recent weeks has been warm compresses around her neck to help the healing process of her vocal cords.”
Last week, Radar Online also reported that a source told Star Magazine that the “Rolling in the Deep” singer has begun losing weight since her surgery, already dropping 25 lbs.
Adele has been nominated for several awards, including Record of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year.
MTV News notes that Adele, who won two Grammys in 2009, could have her Grammy appearance paired with a potential appearance on March’s Vogue cover, which could feature the best female pop singers from the past year.
