Do you want to become a rich and famous international recording star? Start smoking NOW. At least that seems to be ADELE’s advice. She had surgery in 2011 for a vocal cord hemorrhage, and she hasn’t been the same since.
She said, quote, “The people with the best voices, they always smoke. I’ve given up smoking and I’m convinced that’s made my voice weaker.”
There’s at least one bright side, though . . . quote, “My fingers ain’t orange anymore.”
…Just in case you were considering it, this station and common sense warns you NOT to pick up that habit.

GoDaddy.com released a new survey yesterday on the most common “life goals” people have, but haven’t accomplished yet.
Overall, 76% of people said they haven’t made as much progress in their professional and personal lives as they’d like. And 66% said they currently feel stuck in a rut. Here are the five things people WISH they’d accomplished by now.
- Starting your own business. It was the most popular answer overall.
- Going back to school.
- Taking a job outside the state or country you live in. Obviously you have to leave your friends and family behind to do it, so it’s risky.
- Telling someone off. Which is weird, because does that really qualify as a “LIFE GOAL”? (???)
- Traveling alone.
The other popular answers were proposing to someone . . . trying an extreme sport . . . and writing a book. And the top reasons people gave for NOT accomplishing their goals yet were money . . . not knowing how to start . . . lacking confidence . . . and not being able to get motivated.
Here are six common dreams people have about their jobs, and what they usually mean, according to experts.
- Sleeping with a co-worker you’re not attracted to. It doesn’t mean you’re attracted to them subconsciously. It usually means there’s some aspect of their personality that you wish you had.
- Just being at the office. Meaning your entire dream is you working. That one’s actually pretty straightforward. It just means you’re stressed out about your job.
- Showing up to work naked. It means you’re worried that your boss or one of your co-workers will find out about something that you don’t want them to know.
- Dreaming that you killed your boss. It usually means you’re frustrated, because you feel like they control you, and you can’t do anything about it.
- Dreaming that you’re running late for work. It usually has something to do with feeling like you’re not living up to expectations, whether they’re your boss’s or your own.
- Getting fired. It means you’re anxious about something, and it’s your way of subconsciously preparing yourself in case you DO get fired.
