Ariana Grande

SHUT THE HELL UP!!!

... Doctor's Orders

9/11/2013 3:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0911-ariana-grande-tmzAriana Grande is under strict orders from her doctors to keep her mouth SHUT after frying her vocal chords this week -- no talking, no singing, nothing -- and it's throwing a wrench into her big media blitz, TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Ariana tell us, the singer performed at Club Nokia Monday night in L.A. and badly strained her vocal chords. The next morning, she appeared on a radio show and couldn't sing.

We're told Ariana freaked out and immediately went to the doctor, who gave her the bad news ... no singing or talking for AT LEAST 4 days, meaning Ariana's team has had to cancel multiple media appearances, including The Queen Latifah Show and The Arsenio Hall Show.

It's a crippling blow to suffer at such an explosive time in her career -- her debut album just topped the charts at #1 ... and now she can't capitalize on the publicity.

Bummer.

Selena Gomez couldn't talk and she appeared on the George Lopez show with a "text to voice" computer. :P The audience loved it.

I can not stand this girls voice while she talks, I can't imagine her sounding any better when singing. My 12 year old can not watch Sam and Kat in my presense, she's that bad.

How in the WORLD is Queen Latifah supposed to have a talk show while she's in the closet? Isn't the whole point to connect with the audience on an intimate level?

A crying shame she can't do the rounds. I'm sure everyone is heartbroken. Who is this by the way?

If she is this young, and already having voice issues, maybe singing is not your calling. I blame that stupid voice she uses on her tv shows for causing the problem. (I'm sure the world can live without another cookie cutter dienyesque "singer" muddying up the waters anyway)
