Lady Gaga’s chronic pain has led her to cancel an upcoming performance in Brazil.

In a series of tweets shared on Thursday, the singer explained she was taken to the hospital in “severe pain,” and isn’t well enough to perform at Rock in Rio, a music festival in Brazil, on Friday.

The news comes just two days after Gaga revealed she has fibromyalgia.

“I would do anything 4 u but I have to take care of my body right now,” Gaga tweeted. “I ask for your grace and understanding.”

The performance was part of Gaga’s Joanne World Tour, which began on August 1 in Vancouver and is supposed to run through December 18. Gaga canceled a concert in Montreal on September 4, citing health issues.

Her Netflix documentary, “Gaga: Five Foot Two,” which begins streaming on September 22, will address her struggle with chronic pain.
