Lady Gaga cancels tour, citing “trauma and chronic pain” that keep her from “living a normal life”

“I have always been honest about my physical and mental health struggles. Searching for years to get to the bottom of them. It is complicated and difficult to explain, and we are trying to figure it out. As I get stronger and when I feel ready, I will tell my story in more depth, and plan to take this on strongly so I can not only raise awareness, but expand research for others who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference. I use the word ‘suffer’ not for pity, or attention, and have been disappointed to see people online suggest that I’m being dramatic, making this up, or playing the victim to get out of touring. If you knew me, you would know this couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m a fighter. I use the word suffer not only because trauma and chronic pain have changed my life, but because they are keeping me from living a normal life. They are also keeping me from what I love the most in the world: performing for my fans. I am looking forward to touring again soon, but I have to be with my doctors right now so I can be strong and perform for you all for the next 60 years or more. I love you so much.”— Lady Gaga, in an Instagram post explaining the news that the remainder of her European tour has been canceled. The pop star is reportedly “devastated” over the decision, which was made under the advice of doctors.

      I would hardly call a sold out tour a flop, but sure, be a bit more of an ass.

    Oh no! That’s so sad.

    She didn’t cancel. The European leg is being rescheduled for next year. The second NA leg is still a go for now.

    Rituximab(?) Sorry you’re feeling poorly. Talk to a rheumatologist.
