What do Sam Smith and Meghan Trainor have in common? They both have powerhouse singing voices... and both recently had to undergo surgery to correct painful hemorrhages to their vocal cords.
When Meghan was contemplating getting her surgery, she turned to Sam – who had been through it just before her – for advice in her crisis.
"I felt like I was going through... you know how they have midlife crises? I felt like I was going through a crisis," Meghan said in a new interview "I was sad, I had to get rid of my pet cats at the same time, because my doctor was like, 'You're allergic and I'm not giving you the surgery unless you get rid of them.' ... But I lost my cats, I lost everything. I was on top of the world with 'All About That Bass' and then I was at the bottom."
"I was sitting in bed, [and] having the phone calls with my management and agency, like, ‘Are we going to cancel this tour right now? Is this even possible, should we do it? What does the doctor want?’" Meghan explained. "And I texted Sam and I was like, ‘Should I get this done and fix this now and just get it over with?’ And he said, ‘I promise you, you will sing better than ever and be much happier if you get the surgery.’”
We're so glad that she did, because now she's back to feeling – and singing! – like her old self.
