Lady Gaga needs surgery after suffering from a concert injury, which has led to the cancellation of her "Born This Way Ball" tour.
The singer, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, was experiencing chronic pain that caused the cancellation of four tour shows earlier this week.
"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," a Live Nation post on LittleMonsters.com announced Wednesday. "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."
