Top 10 Celebrities Known for Their Frequent Use of Vocal FryVocal Fry is the lowest register of the human voice and heard as an often deep, creaking, rattling, graveling, guttural sound usually produced when ending (yet sometimes beginning) a sentence. It's also known as creaky voice, creak, croak, glottal rattle, glottal fry, laryngelization, pulse register, pulse phonation and strohbass. It’s produced when very little air’s passing out of one’s vocal cords as one relaxes them, causing the cords to vibrate more slowly and irregularly. It’s named fry for being described as mimicking the sound of food being fried (though it sounds more like a creaking door than food frying). We all have vocal fry, though some use it more frequently than others and the highest ones in this list are the ones who use it so much and are famous for it.
The Top Ten
Everyone uses vocal fry usually when ending & beginning sentences, but some people use it constantly & she’s no exception. After all, she may be the true queen of vocal fry we know of. There are more than 7 billion people in this world, making it hard to know who the true queen or king is, but she’s famous & we clearly know her & can guess she’s as much of a deep frier as a woman might possibly be. Not just because of how extreme her vocal fry was, but how much she used it, pretty much every word she spoke was used in the vocal fry register. She’s also known for her valley girl accent & used it for years. Many young women have been changing the way they talked to sound more like her. She’s been famous for decades since shows like Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which’s heading to an end in 2021 after 14 years & 20 seasons. After that she & her siblings may become somebody that we used to know (& listen to).
