Singer Mariah Carey has revealed she wants a voice machine like Stephen Hawking.
The ‘Loverboy’ star, 37, who says she has has to stop talking for two days before a big show to give her voice a rest, believes a “robot voice” machine similar to the one used by the paralyzed scientist would be useful.
She said: “Before a big show I have to do ‘vocal rest’ where I’m not allowed to speak for two days. It’s so boring having to write notes to everyone! I need Stephen Hawking’s voice machine for when I’m on vocal rest.
“I’d like a machine where I can just think and it comes out in a robot voice - that would be amazing!”
Mariah also revealed her unique singing voice is down to nodules on her vocal cords.
She added to Britain’s Q magazine: “One of the reasons for my voice is I have nodules on my vocal cords. My mother says I’ve had them since I was a kid. That’s why I have the high register and the belting register and I can still be husky.
“The only thing that really affects my voice is sleep. Sometimes if I’m exhausted I can’t hit the really high notes.”
hmmm...not as fun as the time she said: "when i watch TV and see those poor starving kids all over the world, i can’t help but cry. i mean, i’d love to be skinny like that, but not with all those flies and death and stuff.” still, it'll do for now.
^^ p.s. party-poopers tell me that quote is not true. let's all pretend it is. it's more fun that way.
