I thought that Mariah Carey sounding a little rusty on the mic was old news but I guess some people are just now realizing that all of her cigarette smoking years ago and her fussing at Nick Cannon lately have wiped out her vocal chords, it’s also an old myth that having kids can knock your vocal chords down a few octaves as well but a few years ago when Carey first lost her chops and stopped smoking she made this candid statement to Groove Magazine about her fading voice..
“It’s true. The two lowest octaves are probably there because of the smoking, but of course it’s not good to smoke. I always had a cold and constant throatache. One day I promised God that if he would give me my voice back I would never smoke again. I got three octaves back after quitting.” – Mariah Carey
