Lady Gaga postpones gigs due to injury

Los Angeles - Lady Gaga has been battling chronic pain from a severe injury while on tour.

The Bad Romance singer has postponed a number of her upcoming concerts because she can barely walk after hurting herself more than a month ago and is suffering from synovitis, which is severe inflammation of the joints.

The 26-year-old star revealed she was forced to cancel a number of her shows on her Facebook page on Tuesday, saying: "I barely know what to say. I've been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for some time now, [and] over the past month it has worsened. I've been praying it would heal.

"I hid it from my staff. I didn't want to disappoint my amazing fans. However, after last night's performance I could not walk and still can't."

The pop star was forced to postpone two concerts in Chicago, one in Detroit and one in Hamilton, Ontario.

'I hate this so much'

She said: "I hope you can forgive me, as it is nearly impossible for me to forgive myself. I'm devastated & sad. It will hopefully heal as soon as possible. I hate this. I hate this so much. I love you and I'm sorry."

The singer's beau Taylor Kinney - who she has been dating since 2011 - is hoping to cheer her up on Valentine's Day  on Thursday by rustling up a gourmet meal for her pet pooch Fozzi to make sure the poodle/spaniel cross doesn't feel left out on the most romantic day of the year.

A source previously said: "Taylor's making both Gaga and Fozzi medium rare lamb best pieces and mashed potatoes with gravy for Valentine's Day.

"He knows that Gaga would never want her precious dog, which is a cross between an American cocker spaniel and a toy poodle, to miss out on all the romance."
