Lady Gaga Hospitalized For 'Severe Pain'

The Mother Monster was sent to the hospital on Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017.

A text post shared on Lady Gaga's Twitter page revealed that the singer was forced to cancel a show in Brazil after experiencing extreme pain. "Lady Gaga is suffering from severe physical pain that has impacted her ability to perform," the statement read. "As a result, she sadly must withdraw from this Friday's Rock in Rio performance."

The statement continued, "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."

On Instagram, Gaga, 31, shared a photo of her arm with an IV. She wrote, "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."

She went on, "I'm so sorry, and I love you so much."

Gaga later shared a photo of her ear and neck, showing off her "Rio" tattoo that she said was "written by children in the favelas" years earlier. In the post, she revealed that she'd been hospitalized for "extreme pain," not just "hip pain or wear and tear from the road."

Gaga's been making headlines in recent weeks for opening up to the public about her struggle with chronic pain, which was recorded in her upcoming Netflix documentary, Gaga: Five Foot Two. On Sept. 12, 2017, the singer revealed that she suffers from fibromyalgia—a disorder characterized by "widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues," according to Mayo Clinic.
