Lady Gaga Pulls Out of Rock in Rio Festival After Being Hospitalized

By  | 

News hit hard for Lady Gaga‘s Little Monsters this week after Mother Monster herself was forced to pull out of her upcoming gig at Brazil’s Rock in Rio music festival after being hospitalized due to chronic physical pain.

Gaga is just one of many celebrities proving that no matter what the circumstance, the care of your body and well-being is to always come first and foremost. Just this week, the singer was scheduled to perform Rock in Rio when she broke the news that she’d be pulling out of the show due to severe physical pain, alongside a photo of her arm with an IV in it and a heartfelt message to fans:

Her reps also released a statement later posted to her socials, along with another photo of a tattoo Gaga once got on the back of her neck that says, “Rio.” She posted the snapshot with another heartfelt letter, saying that Rio will always hold a special place in her heart.

Earlier this week, the 31-year-old “Million Reasons” crooner spoke out in a series of tweets about her diagnosis, a disease called Fibromyalgia, while also bringing awareness to the disease that’s causing her so much physical damage:

For those interested as to what the side effects of this disease entail, Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes extensive muscle pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Gaga has spoken publicly about her struggles with chronic pain before, but this seems to be the first time she has given a name to it. She’s posted signs of being in pain since back in 2016 when she posted an Instagram saying, “Having a frustrating day with chronic pain, but I find myself feeling so blessed to have such strong intelligent female doctors.”

Gaga also plans on slowing down after her current Joanne Tour and giving her body a rest. She recently gave the announcement during the Toronto Film Festival, where her Netflix documentary, Gaga: Five Foot Two, first premiered.

“When this tour is over I will take a little downtime from myself, and then I’ll get back to doing what I love,” she explained. “I’m never not making music. I’m never not creating. I just am excited to spend some time reflecting on that past ten years and getting excited about what I want to create next.”

Gaga’s Five Foot Two documentary is set to premiere on Netflix on September 22. We’re sending our deepest condolences and positive thoughts during Gaga’s recovery.
