Scientists at the famed 'Terence Trent D'Arby Research Institute' released findings today claiming that in extreme cases, listening to soul legend Luther Vandross can cause inflation.
"We kept test subjects in isolation over a two year period, playing Vandross' debut 'Never Too Much' every other day. In two out of three instances the subject began inflating after the second week and steadily continued until the end of the test period, at which point they returned to normal size. The same could not be said about those test subjects who were listening to Warren G." stated Institute Administrator Arnold Von Javelin.
Vandross' powers of expansion have for years been lauded in the mainstream press, but only now has there been any real scientific evidence to back it up. Based on these findings the 'National Association of Easily Deterred Broadcasters' have for now limited their outlets to playing Vandross duets, thus dramatically reducing any effects the late singer may have.
Luther Vandross is survived by a big coat with his name sewn into the collar.
