Miley Cyrus may have nodule, could lose voice
Forget quitting Hannah Montana -- if Star is right, Miley Cyrus may need to leave the show just to give her voice a break. The mag cites a source that says the teen singer has a nodule on her vocal cord.
"Her concerned parents took her to the doctor, who diagnosed the beginning stages of a nodule," says the source. A nodule, Star explains, is a "small, bump-like mound of tissue, also called a node, ... caused by continual straining of the voice and can lead to surgery if left untreated." How nice of them to explain it in such precise, textbook terms ... and to try to make us think she's in danger when all she needs is some hot tea and a day off.
Apparently the show, her recording schedule and a 70-date Best of Both Worlds tour would be the culprit for this. Her reps have denied the allegation, but the mag insists docs put her on three weeks' voice rest, which is music to our ears.
