"Vocal fry" is an "epidemic" that only ancient DL posters notice/give a fuck about.
Kelly Tilgman from the Golf channel. I have a visceral dislike for that woman's voice.
Paris Hilton - both her baby talk voice and her natural speaking voice.
Hello Harry how are ya?!
R29 = Growling inanely through every idiot sentence of her miserable, boring existence, as she flirts with everything from breakfast cereal to shoe polish and "fries" intimately about her undescended testicle and her love of Merlot.
Women are the herd-consumer-copyists of the culture, and the inclusion of this vocal pattern is a pestilence. Only twats and the societally tone deaf talk the way this poster did.
Ok, I watched the video, r12, bit l still don't know what vocal fry is. Anyone?
Ramona Singer on Real House Wives NYC. I really think Andy Cohen needs to dump her from the show. She makes it unwatchable. I have had to change the channel because of her.

R32, I have never so much as heard the term "vocal fry" ANYWHERE outside of DL, yet DLers are obsessed with this supposed "phenomenon." What is anyone supposed to make of that? I guess I'll continue flirting with inanimate objects while you continue to find new unimportant inanities to seethe with eldergay bitterness over.
S Palin (ignorant cheese) and G Paltrow (Upper East Side nasal)
Jennifer Tilly's is just an act though, right? She used it to great effect in Bullets over Broadway.
Katy Perry. She sounds like a ten-year-old girl trying to sound grown up, especially in that acne medicine commercial.
Anderson Cooper ("owe-ways" instead of "always")
Lady Gaga, Paul Ryan, Sarah Palin, Tracy Morgan
R36 et al., if you could waddle yourself over to Google and note to 1.2 million hits on "vocal fry," you'd realize that not only are you an uninformed cunt but an isolate in a big, big world.
Now go scritch outside with your never-noticed vocal tics that drive the people around you crazy and attract other insects like yourself with the noise.
And don't come back.
He's such a phony with his ghetto voice to black audience and his pseudo white voice when he tries to be respectable.
Sad part is the black folk don't even know they're being talked down to.
It's gotta be that guy who's on Leno all the time that sounds like a woman.
Ross the Intern is still there, R48? I thought he went the way of MTV's Jesse Camp. Last I saw or heard of Ross was when I watched Leno's coverage of the 2002 Winter Olympics.
If we're including singing voices, Michael McDonald has to be on the list.
Liam Gallagher singing at the Closing ceremony of the Olympics - his voice was very nasal and annoying.
Matthew Broderick and Leonardo Di Caprio - still sound like boys.
Most Actresses under 35; their very girly voices practically sound the same
Zooey Deschanel; Arrgh is she even capable of speaking in any other way. Deeply grating and flat. Even her sister is nowhere near as bad!
Reese Witherspoon; too sharp and that southern accent OMG!
Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Hilary Swank; all sound very boring.
Clooney; has a nice smooth voice but only in small doses. Can sound far too smug after a while!
Gwyneth Paltrow; there's a reason she sounds better with an English Accent. It's by far less irritating and grating than when she talks with in her own Californian accent. Her base voice is not suited to an American one full stop.
Sofia Vergara; very loud and strongly accented voice
Most Australian Actresses; nearly all speak with very deep voices and chainsaw accents. Only the men sound sexy with it.
Colin Farrell; Irish Dublin accents are among the worst in the entire country. The perfect example of an urban city sounding collectively like they are living in Hicksville!
Thank you, R46. Well-said.
Link goes to vocal fry articles, with links to examples.
"Vocal fry" may be something that exists. However, it is certainly not something that the average person allows themselves to be whipped up into an irrational frenzy over, let alone care enough about to notice on a regular basis. Hence why I said that this "epidemic" that causes so much rage exists only on DL. Oh, and R46? It's time to change your adult diaper, hon.
Olypmic gold medal gymnast Ally Raisman... she sounds like a long lost Kardashian!!
I hate her voice, have to turn the channel
Many YouTube gay vloggers with overly dramatic, feminized voices. Don't even get started on "self-hating homo" callouts. Yes I realize there are a lot of femme guys out there; the guys I'm talking about are putting on a very affected show, and love to hear their own voice. Example: Davey Wavey
David Beckham, Rod Stewart, Taylor Swift, Adele, Barbara Walters, and the gasping of Gavin MacLeod, Garrison Keeler and Drake Hogestyn.
A beautiful voice: google: "Pitt Tenor"
