Lady Gaga Forced to Cancel Rest of Tour: Needs Hip Surgery Similar to A Rod


Lady Gaga has been sidelined.

Here’s the release: “Live Nation Global Touring has confirmed that the remainder of the Lady Gaga Born This Way Ball performances have been cancelled.
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.”

The labral tear of the hip is similar to what Alex Rodriguez, A Rod, of the Yankees, had this past winter. He had surgery in December and is expected to be playing when the baseball season starts April 1st.

Gaga– Stefani Germanotta–can work on her ARTPop album, which is due in November, and her duets album with Tony Bennett. Knowing how he loves performing, this is probably worse news for her than than for her rabid fans. Get well, Lady Gaga!
