Lady Gaga Cancels Four Shows Due To Severe Joint Pain

Lady Gaga has shelved four tour dates due to the joint pain that has rendered her bed ridden. The Mother Monster broke the news via Twitter and said she was heartbroken to cancel the shows.

"There's an unfortunate announcement coming out right now, concerning myself and the Born This Ball. I'm so sorry. I barely know what to say," the singer tweeted. "I've been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for sometime now, over the past month it has worsened. I've been praying it would heal."

She went on to explain that the injury is synovitis, which is a form of severe joint paint.

"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 wrote.

The cancellations include two shows in Chicago, one in Hamilton, Ontario and one in Detroit.
