Lady Gaga has been hospitalized as she is suffering from “severe physical pain”.
She has canceled her performance at the festival Rock In Rio in Brazil because of it.
Lady Gaga, 31, wrote to fans on Instagram: “Brazil, I’m devastated that I’m not well enough to come to Rock In Rio. I would do anything 4 u but I have to take care of my body right now. I ask for your grace and understanding, and promise that I will come back and perform for you soon. I’m so sorry, and I love you so much.”
She recently revealed she’s suffering with fibromyalgia, a condition that causes intense discomfort all over the body.
A statement on her Instagram page said: “Lady Gaga is suffering from severe physical pain that has impacted her ability to perform.
“As a result, she sadly must withdraw from this Friday’s Rock In Rio performance.
“Lady Gaga is under the care of expert medical professionals.
“She sends her love to all her fans in Rio and thanks them for their support and understanding.”
Lady Gaga also posted a picture of her arm with a drip in it.
After one hour she announced she has been hospitalized: “I was taken to the hospital, it is not simply hip pain or wear and tear from the road, I am in severe pain. But am in good hands w/ the very best doctors. Please don’t forget my love for you. ? Remember years ago when I tattooed Rio on my neck, the tattoo was written by children in the favelas. ??R✝️O You hold a special place in my heart I love you.”
Lady Gaga also canceled a show in Montreal, Canada, earlier this month after falling ill.
