Lady Gaga cancels tour

Feb 13 2013, 8:36pm CST | by

Lady Gaga is to undergo emergency surgery.

The 'Bad Romance' singer has been forced to cancel all 25 of the remaining US dates of the 'Born This Way Ball', after suffering a severe injury to her right hip that has been causing her chronic pain.

A statement was posted on the 26-year-old star's official website on Wednesday (02.13.13), saying: "Live Nation Global Touring has confirmed that the remainder of the Lady Gaga 'Born This Way Ball' performances have been canceled.

"After additional tests this morning to review the severity of the issue, it has been determined that Lady Gaga has a labral tear of the right hip. She will need surgery to repair the problem, followed by strict down time to recover. This unfortunately, will force her to cancel the tour, so she can heal. Refunds for the cancelled performances will be available at point of purchase starting Feb 14, 2013."

The announcement came just one day after the singer issued a public apology after initially canceling four shows due the injury and revealed she can barely walk due to the inflammation of her joints, known as synovitis.

Gaga said: "I barely know what to say. I've been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for some time now, [and] over the past month it has worsened. I've been praying it would heal.

"I hid it from my staff. I didn't want to disappoint my amazing fans. However, after last night's performance I could not walk and still can't."

She admitted she is "devastated" about the cancelation and sought forgiveness from her fans, saying: "I hope you can forgive me, as it is nearly impossible for me to forgive myself. I'm devastated & sad. It will hopefully heal as soon as possible. I hate this. I hate this so much. I love you and I'm sorry."

The world tour began in Seoul, South Korea on April 27, 2012 and was originally due to end in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on March 20, 2013.

Billboard's album sales chart has a new entry in its No. 5 spot: Legend, the greatest hits record by Bob Marley and the Wailers. It's the highest spot ever for Marley.

Billboard reports that sales of the album rose more than 1,000 percent after mus ...

They can be objects of desire and glamour, but also of torture. A new exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum looks at the high-heeled shoe's history and its enduring place in the popular imagination. The show features about 160 high heels from the 17th-century through the present. In this interview, curator Lisa Small said the long history of the high-heel shoe shows it has an enduring quality. “There is something about it, whether it’s visual or cultural that keeps it in the forefront of ...

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Nicki Minaj’s request to return and speak to students at her alma mater, LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, was turned down, according to a post on the rapper’s Twitter account.

Katy Perry: ‘Why am I a baby machine? Why can’t I be a mogul?’

Sep 10 2014 6:25am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Katy Perry covers the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar in an Asian-inspired shoot. The theme doesn’t stand out on the cover as much as the editorial. Katy thinks she’s super kawaii in real life. At least she’s not committing cultural appropriation again with “geisha style.” This shoot simply favors Japanese gardens as a backdrop. Katy was probably bored, and her poses reflect that attitude. The in ...
