She has even canceled a number of forthcoming engagements.
“Hi guys. I wanted you to hear it from me first. Unfortunately I have to have surgery on my tonsils asap. The surgery is routine but the recovery is going to take awhile due to swelling. That means I have to cancel my festival run this summer as well as The Weeknd tour,” Doja wrote.
“I feel horrible about this but can’t wait for this to heal and get back to making music and create an appearance for y’all.”
She first tweeted: “dr. just had to cut into my left tonsil. i had an abscess in it. my whole throat is f—-d so i might have some bad news for yall coming soon.”
In the second tweet, the “Say So” singer finally revealed why she had to undergo a tonsil surgery: “I was taking antibiotics but forgot that I was taking them.”
“And then I drank wine and was vaping all day long and then I started getting a nasty growth on my tonsil so they had to do surgery on it today.”
The record producer was also scheduled to perform at the Hangout Festival and Glastonbury Festival, in addition to her tour with the “Blinding Lights” singer. The news was initially reported by Pitchfork.
