MUSIC – The American singer Lady Gaga has canceled the last ten concerts in Europe of her tour, including a date in Paris, explaining suffering “sharp pains”. In a message posted this Saturday, February 3 on Twitter and Instagram, the singer is said to “collapsed” and explains that he agreed with the doctors.

“I’m so collapsed, I do not know how to say it. All I know is that if I do not do it, I will not do honor to the words I say in my songs or in the sense that I give them. My medical team wants me to get home, “says the 31-year-old artist. “I like this tour more than anything in the world, and I love you, but it’s beyond my control.”

The singer cites the cities in which the concerts were to be held: “London, Manchester, Zurich, Cologne, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Paris, Berlin. I promise you that I will come back to your city, but for now I have to put my well-being first, “she says.

She also had to cancel a concert in Rio in September after being hospitalized.

The singer of “Just Dance” said in the past that she suffered from chronic pain due to fibromyalgia. This disease, which affects 2 to 5% of the French population, is a complex disease that brings together many different symptoms: pain, exhaustion, hyperesthesia (sensitivity exacerbated sensations), memory problems, digestive disorders and sleep disorders. “Every day, living with is a hell and a handicap,” explained a few months ago a young woman with fibromyalgia in a post published on  The HuffPost .

The American woman had confided about her illness in a text published on social networks in September: “I do not use the word ‘suffering’ to gain attention or pity (…) I use this word, no only because chronic pain has changed my life, but also because these symptoms prevent me from leading a normal life. They also prevent me from doing what I love most in the world: playing for my fans. “

At a press conference, again in September, Lady Gaga announced the suspension of her career at the end of her world tour with “Joanne”: “I’m going to take a break, I do not know how long. I can not wait to think, slow down and heal, because it’s important. “
